As someone who spends much of my time trying to help golfers improve, I believe that several factors should be part of a golfer’s repertoire. The first is a repeatable, consistent technique. To achieve this goal, I don’t teach a strict rigid method. I believe in working within an individual’s natural skill set, body type, commitment level, and personal idiosyncrasies.

    “John Bierkan worked for me at Doral. He trained here. By training, I mean serious maniacal training that eventually propelled John to the top of the teaching profession.  He’s a real pro who can also play the game of golf at a very high level. Not many teachers can make that claim. I’m honored to call John a good friend.” – Jim McLean, Golf Digest Top 50 Teacher
