Tom Rezendes, PGA – Owner & Lead Coach

After becoming a PGA Class A Professional in 2011 I have followed my passion to learn everything I can about the golf swing and teaching golf.  As a result, I have been able to assist fellow golf professionals seeking advice on golf instruction.  Since opening NorCal Golf Academy, I  have also advised in the design and layout of world class instructional facilities around the world including the Meadow Club in Fairfax, CA, Bobby Clampett’s Impact Zone World Headquarters, local universities and K-Vest.

The Academy

A Process to Golf Instruction

Ranked by Golf Digest as the number 14 instructor in California and one of the highest certified and trained instructors in the state, I take pride in helping golfers on the road to improvement quickly. Utilizing TrackMan radar technology, Swing Catalyst Balance Plate and  GEARS Motion Capture I can measure every facet of my student’s motion and give quantifiable data on what needs improvement and what is working properly.

I am the only Certified Golf Biomechanist in Northern California and am certified and own one the few GEARS systems in Northern California.

I truly believe that in this day and age golfers seeking to improve their game should not have to settle for a lesson where the instructor is guessing and without 3D technology that is exactly what they are doing! My motto is “If you are not assessing than you are guessing” .

Elliot Busichio, PGA – Instructor

I started playing golf when I was four years old and played competitively throughout Northern California. I played collegiate golf at Cal State East Bay, which lead me to wanting to become a golf instructor. I have always wanted to improve other’s games and get them to love the golf as much as I do. One of my favorite quotes is from Tiger Woods “No matter how good you are, you can always get better.” That is something that I have incorporated not only into my teaching but also into life itself, that no matter how good you are at something, always strive to be better.

I am currently working towards becoming a Class A PGA member and strive to learn from the best instructors of the game, which has brought me to working for Tom Rezendes, a top 25 instructor in California. I am certified in Stack and Tilt, K-Vest, Swing Catalyst, TPI and am a Callaway Certified Fitter.


I strive to help students not just become better players but to understand the game of golf by utilizing GC Quad and Swing Catalyst software to help them better understand their golf swings and improve their swings.

Jenny Park-Choi, Instructor

I started in Golf when I was 14. Late start for playing at a high level, but fell in love with the game immediately and improved quickly. Broke 70 for my first time in a tournament after 2 years of playing Golf by shooting a back nine score of 30 (-6). I played JGANC, AJGA and USGA tournaments, winning over 50 tournaments including 2 AJGA events and being selected to the Inaugural Canon Cup Team (now Wyndham Cup), and went on to earn a full scholarship to play at UCLA. Despite some setbacks with injuries, I earned All-Conference and All-American team honors. Ranked #2 in the NCAA my Senior year. After graduating from UCLA I then played 3 years on the LPGA Tour and played in 3 US Women’s Opens. I began teaching in 2002 while recovering from injuries at home and found teaching much more rewarding than playing. I’ve been teaching for the past 17 years, appreciating the progress and watching my students improve and truly enjoy the game of Golf more. I truly believe in “Focusing on the process of improvement, and not dwelling on perfection.”

Jack Henneberry, Instructor

I started playing golf when I was four and have been passionate about the game since.  One of my favorite golf quotes by Jack Nicklaus is, 

“Resolve never to quit, never to give up, no matter what the situation.” 

This mantra has led me to be persistent in achieving my goals, which have included winng the CIF Central Section Team Championship my senior year of High School, playing collegiate golf at Bakersfield College, and completing undergrad requirements to be accepted and to graduate with a Business Administration degree from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, work for a big 4 accounting firm (Ernst and Young) for four years and now coach golf at NorCal Golf Academy.


Hannah Jun Medlock, Instructor

Born and raised in San Diego, CA, I started playing golf at the age of 9. By the time I was 12 I was competing locally, within the state and on a national level. Some of my highlights as a junior golfer include SDJGA Player of the Year, SCPGA Player of the Year, AJGA All American, former West team Canon cup member and 2003 Junior World Champion.

I went on to play at a collegiate level at UCLA, where I was an All American, Pac-10 Newcomer of the Year as well as part of a National Championship team. I went on post graduating to play on the LPGA (Ladies Professional Golf Association) as well as the LET (Ladies European Tour) from 2007-2015. No matter the success at any level, the game of golf is a never-ending work in progress. Making it one of the most challenging sports. Achieving perfection is impossible but having a plan with a goal is the best part of the journey!

“Having a goal without a plan, is merely a wish.”



Mission Helping my students make a personalized plan and guiding them through the entire process. Making some extra birdies along the way and having fun!
