EJ Kim, PGA
Axis Golf Academy & Fitting Center, Montgomery, TX
Eujone “EJ” Kim is the co-owner/operator of Axis Golf Academy and Fitting Center in the northern Houston suburb of Montgomery. Ranked among Golf Digest’s “Best Young Teachers in America” for 2016-’17, EJ credits his father, Byung Young Kim, who is also a golf instructor, for introducing him to the game.
EJ played collegiately at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, R.I., and was working toward his dream of playing professionally before putting his game on pause to serve as a translator for eight-time PGA Tour winner K.J. Choi. The experience of traveling on the PGA Tour gave him a unique perspective into the daily life of a tour player, as well as giving him access to the best players and coaches in the world. This experience sparked an interest toward teaching the game instead of playing professionally.
Some of the coaches that have had a great influence on EJ include Phil Ritson, Steve Bann and Kevin Kirk. EJ has certifications in teaching, biomechanics, various golf technology tools and club fitting.
