Jim didn’t start playing golf until 1967, at the age of 27, and his first two years were spent on par-three courses. Just three years after joining Glen Lawrence Golf and Country Club in 1969 he won his first club championship.

Jim won more than 150 tournaments in a career spanning 35 years. Among them were three city golf championships and a dozen club titles, six at Cataraqui and six at Glen Lawrence.

In July, 1974, Jim won two tournaments in one day, less than two hours apart: the Glen Lawrence Golf and Country Club’s annual Dominion Day Tournament, and the annual Garrison Golf and Curling Club’s men’s field day.

In June, 1979, Jim competed in his first provincial event, the Ontario Open, where he finished seventh. In July of that year he shot the best four consecutive rounds ever shot at Glen Lawrence.

Jim shot holes in one at Cataraqui in 1995 and 2004 and he was the eastern Ontario senior champion in 1991 and 1992.
