       Bill Condaxis      Isaac Weintraub      

                        WILL KARNOFSKY



    Bill Condaxis is a lifelong golfer who has played over 150 professional golf tournaments. He began coaching and teaching golf in 1988, has been a PGA member for 30 years and worked with Extraordinary Golf™ for 27 years as a coach and leader of over 300 programs and workshops. "I love playing music and golf and sharing what I've learned along the way". 

    Isaac Weintraub was born and raised in Santa Cruz, CA where he was a stand-out junior golfer. In college, he was a two time All-American at San Jose State (2000-2004). After college, Isaac competed professionally on the PGA Tour of Canada, the European Challenge Tour and the PGA Tour. His coaching career began in western Canada in 2013 where he opened three different golf schools. Isaac loves mentoring young golfers and has also coached at the college and professional levels. In his free time, Isaac still plays a lot of golf, surfs, practices yoga and enjoys time with family and friends.  

    Will Karnofsky's journey of learning golf came through an obsession with years of daily practice. Now an 8-year member of the PGA, he delights in simplifying this game through sensory based coaching for his students. As a long time contemplative practitioner, Will empowers his students to stay present to what is really happening and highlights awareness as the crucial element for learning.
