    My name is Elliot Busichio, I was born and raised in the Bay Area. I grew up playing competitive golf throughout Northern California, which led me to playing college golf at Cal State University, East Bay.
    After graduating college in 2015, I began teaching golf part time and decided that was what I wanted to do with my career. From there I had the opportunity to work at NorCal Golf Academy, where I taught golfers of all ages and abilities. I am certified in TPI (Titleist Performance Institute), Swing Catalyst, K-Vest, and I am a Callaway Fitting Professional.
    When teaching, my goal is for every student to enjoy the game as much as I do. I utilize swing caddie launch monitor and swing profile software to capture all aspects of your game. I like to use this software as a baseline because every swing in golf is different and being able to show similarities and differences between swings is a great benefit.
    I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your goals with your golf game.
