About J. Banks Guyton Our PGA Professional

J. Banks Guyton has been a certified PGA Professional since 1966. Having served as a club professional for 28 years, Banks is now a full-time PGA Instructor and Professional Clubfitter specializing in single frequency matched custom clubs.

Banks started his professional career in Wilmington, North Carolina and went on to serve as the Head Golf Professional at Tuscarora Country Club in Danville, Virginia; Williamsburg Country Club in Williamsburg, Virginia; South Bend Country Club in South Bend, Idaho; and Echo Farms Country Club in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Banks is a former Carolina PGA Senior Player of the Year, Virginia Player of the Year and has competed in the U.S. Senior Open, the PGA Senior Championship and Western Open. He draws on his many years of experience as an accomplished tour player in helping his students better understand their golf swings.

Banks knows that there are so many misleading terms and myths that prevent players from making solid, repeatable swings. Banks teaches what today’s best male and female players in the world do, and they all do exactly what the best players in the world did 50 years ago. Great golf swings are timeless.

Ultimately, Banks wants all of his students to understand their golf swings so that when they are practicing, they know exactly what they must practice. Perfect Practice is understanding one’s swing flaws, practicing the things one works on in a lesson, and those things only. Practice is simply repetition of the same learned movements. Students at every level must understand the golf swing only lasts a second and a half. What that in mind, there is only so much one can do.

Our teaching habits are based on “connection”, Golf’s Master Fundamental. The one common denominator that we have determined is that the fundamentals and ”key positions of the golf game are constant.”
