The Eisman Golf Academy Team

Jon Eisman

There are many who profess to be lifelong students of the game, but few match Jon’s experience to back that up. After an early career into professional golf, seeing how instructors at the tour level knew so much about the game, Jon discovered his true passion was in teaching the game. 

Having been an understudy for some of the most famous golf instructors, Jon brings insight from the highest of competitive golf experiences to help students improve their games. 

Between spending time with wife and two kids, Jon spends hours continuing his studies in biomechanics, movement patterns, and forward dynamics. 

Wonsuk Rhee

After a competitive amateur golf career at George Mason University, Wonsuk finally acknowledged that his love for learning and sharing the game exceeded his desire to compete. Wonsuk has achieved several levels of teaching certifications, including most recently Trackman Level 1&2.
