Introduction: THIS GOLF PROFESSIONAL TEACHES IN ORANGE COUNTY IN THE CITY Of ORANGE --------------------------------------------------- Jim Carson is the voice of TAGSOD, the Talk About Golf System of Development. His resume of fifty+ years in golf includes global competitive experience, 58 professional victories and impressive teaching credentials. Today Jim shares his knowledge by way of "Listen Lessons" and also offers one-on-one instructional services on the range, on the course in play, as well as in "clinic" presentations. Check out the TAGSOD website for a closer look at who Jim Carson is and how your golf score can benefit from an association. Not only is he a resource loaded with information to help your game but Jim's also homespun friendly and a great communicator. Your time spent together promises to be fun, motivational and exceptionally beneficial in making you a better player. And every lesson is enhanced by V1 video technology with comparative dual screen viewing capability. This way you always leave with a clarity to the corrective course of action, including drills and practice routines to assist. If you want to invest in results that resonate and serve well in play, Jim's the best choice. And by the way...he's awesome with kids! Hi...I'm Jim Carson and I've been playing competitive golf and teaching the game for over forty years to a large clientele that ranges in age from 6 to 92...beginner, to highly skilled collegiate athletes and professionals in pursuit of big time goals. What makes my lesson tee more desirable than others is that I present the swing mechanics in a way that simplify the learning process. Golf is not that complex if taught in a "building block" structure, mastering one piece before advancing to another. Most beginners try to assimilate too much developmental instruction too soon, while more advanced players tend to get lost in finding solutions to errant shots by way of endless reconstruction efforts or by trial and error, hit or miss guesswork. The key to better golf begins with understanding the golf swing. And I have the acumen to teach it...and the patience to mold it. Because everyone comes to the lesson tee with a different set of swing skills and not everyone can be squeezed into a cookie cutter mold to develop theirs. My expertise is in analyzing each individual and finding pathways of golf development that are easy and effective. And, since golf has been my life, I have a passion to teach and a healthy respect for each individual who comes to my lesson tee. You may arrive as a student...but you go as a friend...and a better player to boot.

What an awesome lesson! My wife and I are complete beginners. She has gone to mini golf and I have been to a driving range a few times. Jim started us from the very beginning and was so great. He’s able to start at the very basics and work with us. Most importantly, he’s extremely engaging and affable. This made it as especially good time for my wife so much so that she is willing to continue with golf lessons and explore this. That alone is worth all the time and money. Highly recommend.

I have been golfing for 11 years / 3yrs of that on a mini hiatus 2019-2021. Ive been self taught like many amateur golfers and broke 100 then 90 but in the last 6 months been stuck in the mid 80s with a lack of ball striking consistency which bothered me the most. At this point it wasnt about putts or short game which is my comfortable part of my game. It came down to ball striking and giving myself more GIRs. My goal was to break 80 and consistently put myself in the high 70s god-willing. This is where I humbled myself and seeked help. I knew I didnt need a bundle of lessons nor was I a beginner, I just needed someone to fine tune and look at a few things and provide pointers. Jim did this in 1 lesson for me: posture and swing path. 💡 the light bulb went off! I practiced this one the range and then into the course and finally broke 80 today with a 78 at Tijeras Creek. Could have been lower without a mental mistake on #10 with a +3 but that will require a sports psychiatrist! Haha! Nevertheless, I thanked Jim right away because his one lesson (for my swing) gave me the confidence and ball striking I needed. I am finding more fairways and greens than I ever have! Thank you Jim!!

Had the pleasure of getting my first lesson/introductory with Mr Jim Carson about a month ago. He showed me plenty in what felt like a short time but was a few hours of training . I went from missing the majority of my swings to to making contact on almost every ball after our lesson. The main thing is to remember and put into play was is taught. He made me enjoy the game more than I would have imagined. First rate pro, and I look forward to getting a full game lesson from him soon. Great guy, great personality and doesn't rush thru the process. Thank you sir, for the experience

I am very new to golf and tried watching so many videos to help me improve in the game. I couldn’t quite understand from those videos, but learning from Jim, I was able to understand right away. His tips and tricks are very straight forward and easy to pick up. Not only that, he cheers you on no matter what and is very positive! I also like how he gives “homework” to improve your skills at home. Only after one lesson, I have learned so much from him and will definitely be coming back soon!

Jim is the ultimate pro when it comes to lessons. He listens to what your looking on improving and gears his advice / drills to accommodate your goals. This was my first golf lesson and I’ll be booking more with Jim in the future.
