Kingston was born in Ottosdal, South Africa. He turned professional in 1988 and was a member of the European and Sunshine Tour. He has also competed on the Asian Tour, where he collected four tournament victories.
Kingston has been playing on the Sunshine Tour for the last 26 years. Since his debut season in 1991, James has never finished outside the top 25 on the Sunshine Tour Order of Merit. In that time, he has won 10 events, including his most prized victory, the 2008 edition of the South African Open at Pearl Valley. James has also spent time on the European (where he is currently a member) and Asian Tours (where he has won four times). Victory at the Sunshine Tour's Vodacom Championship in February 2008 lifted Kingston into the top 100 of the Official World Golf Rankings for the first time.
He proved that age is but a number by following up his win at the SA Open with a win at the 2009 Mercedes-Benz Championship in a playoff against Anders Hansen at the age of 43. In 2002, James won an Audi TT at the Alfred Dunhill Championship with an amazing hole-in-one. Using a 4-iron, he pulled his tee shot into some trees left of the green: the ball then dropped onto the green and rolled into the cup, earning him instant global fame as the bizarre ace was CNN's Play of the Day. James also has a keen interest in wildlife and nature.
On the European Tour has played in 315 events, making the cut in 184 of them. He has been in the top-ten 33 times and earned euros4,532,951.
