About Jim Payne


Following a full time playing career, I have now settled in to a challenging and exciting role as club professional at Southport and Ainsdale Golf Club.

As a player, my successes included:

  • 1991: Winner, European Amateur Championship
  • 1991: Silver Medal, Leading Amateur, The Open Championship (Royal Birkdale)
  • 1992: Rookie of the Year European Tour
  • 1993: Winner, Turespana Open de Baleares
  • 1996: Winner, Italian Open
  • 1996: World Cup of Golf (representing England)

I have played in five Open Championships and as an amateur, won the European Amateur and the British Youths Championships. I have been fortunate to play some of the best courses with most of the worlds top players, learning things from them all. These tips are all passed on in my tuition programmes. Personal coaching in all aspects of the game can provide instant results. I have worked closely with the Lancashire Ladies team since 2002, when they became English County Champions, and the county boys and mens teams
