As a combination teacher and player, I feel John is one of the best in America. What really stands out to me about John, however, is not necessarily his accolades or distinguished golf resume- though these are impressive. What’s best about John is, well, John. John Bierkan is a top-notch person. He’s always motivated by doing the right thing and by treating others the right way. His professionalism, character, and wonderful demeanor make him a real pleasure for anyone to be with and a tremendous asset to the golf profession. John epitomizes everything a great golf professional should be.
