Jim Hackeburg Bio: PGA Class A Professional  /  CEO & Developer of the Orange Whip Training Products

  • Horton Smith Award Winner, 2017 Carolinas PGA Section.
  • Played collegiate golf at Arizona St and Oregon St (1988-1992)
  • Introduced the Orange Whip in 2008.
  • The Orange Whip has been voted the #1 Teaching & Training aid by PGA and LPGA Professionals for the last 6 years.
  • The Orange Whip is used by over 300 PGA, LPGA and Champions Tour Players and has sold over 450,000 units worldwide.
  • Jim has presented his teaching philosophy to over 21 PGA Sections as well as LPGA and USGA events.                  

Philosophy:

Like so many aspiring golfers, my goal in life was to play on the PGA Tour.  When it became clear that wasn’t going to happen, I shifted my attention to golf instruction and earned the status of Class “A” professional.  In 2003, a close friend qualified for the PGA Tour and asked me to caddie for him.  I saw this as an opportunity to expand my knowledge and teaching ability by observing the best players in the world work on their games.  While observing the Tour players every day, my understanding of the golf swing and what was necessary to develop the athletic motion of a rhythmic, balanced swing improved greatly.  Most amateurs, and many pros, are very concerned with the positions of the club during the swing, therefore losing the feel of an athletic motion.  This tension leads to an attempt to hit at the ball rather than swinging through the ball to achieve power and accuracy, which leads to poor results.  I took the focus away from “position” and their desire to hit the ball, and put it squarely on their motion.  By doing so their results (and positions) greatly improved.  It was this shift in philosophy that led me to develop a tool that could help the player feel and learn the golf swing motion.  I wanted a device that would provide golfers with dynamic feedback, helping them to feel their body swinging in a tour pro motion.  After years of research, experimentation and collaboration I was confident I had created the perfect tool.  The Orange Whip Trainer is the swing aid and golf fitness product for a new generation.  I believe it to be the best swing aid ever developed and I’m confident that anyone that uses my products on a regular basis will agree.
