EJ serves as lead instructor for Axis Golf Academy and is a PGA member. Raised in Queens, NY, he began playing the game of golf at the age of five and credits his father for teaching and introducing him to the game, as his father also teaches the game. Playing golf for him has been a passion which has led him to play collegiately and created a drive to play professionally. However, an opportunity to work for KJ Choi as a translator gave him a unique perspective into the daily life of a tour player, as well as giving him an access to the best players in the world. This experience sparked an interest towards teaching the game instead of playing professionally. His goal is to help golfers of all levels to reach their maximum potential.
The camps at Woodforest Golf Club are designed for kids ages 8-15 (varies by program type) looking to develop their skills through repetition and instruction. At Nike Junior Golf Camps, we accomodate all skill levels and aim to provide an environment where each camper is surrounded by those close to his or her abilities. At the beginning of each week all campers are divided into groups in order to provide a more customized set of training and instruction tailored to aide in their personal improvement as a player.Show Less See More Camp Details
A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the spring.

Cool Camp Format
"Learned a lot from the staff - cool camp format - I liked getting to play on the course each day on top of range instruction. My brother and I had a great time."
