Jimmie James conquered America and now the man who played his country’s top 100 courses in just one year has targeted the rest of the world

Everything about Jimmie James’ quest is extraordinary. Whether that was starting his year-long drive to play America’s top 100 courses at Augusta National – a course many of us will never see – or the 70,000 air miles and $25,000 it cost to achieve it, his mission to play that entire list in 365 days was a journey of discovery.

But he hasn’t stopped there. Fittingly, we met him at the Home of Golf, where he discussed his golfing odyssey, what possessed him to do it and why he now has more global ambitions.
