Jim joined the AmateurGolf.com team in April of 2021 as its managing editor.
With over 30 years of experience in the fields of public relations, marketing and communications, Jim has headed up athletic communication departments at three universities on the west coast, including Santa Clara, Stanford and his alma mater, the University of San Francisco and gained valuable journalistic experience during a 15-year affiliation with ESPN-owned SportsTicker. In addition to his role with AmateurGolf.com, Jim also serves as an official scorer for Major League Baseball with assignments on both sides of the bay involving the San Francisco Giants and Oakland A’s.
Jim enjoys all sports, collecting and reading golf books, cooking meals for his family and friends, spending time with his dogs and making occasional birdies. He threatens to move to Scotland at least once a week.
