About Rushi

Hello! My name is Rushi Oza and I am a Class A PGA member. I was born and raised in Canton, Ohio and attended North Carolina State University, earning a degree in Business Management and Finance. I moved to South Florida in 2009 to pursue a playing career as a Professional golfer. I played on various mini tours for a period of 5 years and was fortunate to be able to travel all over the country and to multiple South American countries to compete. My extensive playing background has shaped my teaching style and philosophy to help golfers of all ages and skill levels improve their games, reach their personal golf goals and enjoy the road to success. I want to embrace the journey and share the path to shooting lower scores with each one of my students as a team.

Rushi’s background includes being the First Assistant at The Indian River Club in Vero Beach, FL and the First Assistant at Jonathan’s Landing Golf Club in Jupiter, FL. He worked 5 years for Jim McLean, one of the top instructors in the world at his main golf school in Miami, FL from 2017-2022.

Austin Roberts - Charlotte, NC


"Rushi is an amazing instructor and has been instrumental to my improvement. I was confused due to an endless rabbit hole of online instruction videos. He was able to develop my swing and help me understand the golf swing better"

Albert Sarduy - Miami, FL


"Rushi is an exceptional instructor and has established a long lasting relationship with my son. He fell in love with the game and is well on his way to making the school team. He helped set goals, reach milestones and develop his game."

"Rushi has gone above and beyond to help my individual needs. I’ve drastically changed my swing and corrected my persistent slice. He will not push you to get more lessons. I highly encourage anyone to give Rushi a chance."
