My name is James Marshall and I am the founder of the Golf Barcelona website. I’ve been teaching golf since 2004 and have over twenty-five years of playing experience, as well as having a Master’s Degree in Second Language Acquisition from the University of London and the RSA Diploma from the University of Cambridge. I am uniquely placed to satisfy both your golfing and English language learning needs. Wide experience in a range of different classes. My golf teaching influences are varied and I have read extensively on both the golf swing, the short game and putting. My teaching draws on a wide range of sources both inside and outside golf. I have also had the opportunity to speak to many experienced instructors and have benefited from their invaluable advice.
“James Marshall travels all over the world to learn from the very best minds on all facets of the game of golf, and he brings that information back here to his students. James is on the cutting edge of instruction: he is the first Authorized Instructor of the Golfing Machine in Spain, also the first Authorized teacher of Geoff Mangum's Putting Zone in Spain, and has extensive training in MORAD (the theory behind "Stack & Tilt"). Because of his extensive study and training, James is probably the most knowledgeable golf instructor in Spain.
More importantly for his students, James is always looking for the best ways to apply that knowledge to players of all levels. Because of this combination of deep knowledge, excellent communication skills and an enthusiasm and passion to help golfers, anyone looking to play better golf should visit James."
Thank you very much indeed for your help. Both as an English teacher and golf teacher you’ve made a great impression upon me. Meeting you has proven to be a valuable discovery for my golf game.
"James’ comments, advice, analysis and his patient communication style make it a perfect way of transmitting the inexhaustible source of information about golf which he has accumulated since he started playing. His help has been invaluable for improving my game.”
