Better golf doesn't mean starting over.

Lowering your handicap doesn't mean you have to forget your current golf swing and start over.

Mike Barge doesn't believe golfers have to get worse before they get better. Better golf begins with knowing your capabilities and committing to small adjustments that add up to lasting change.

I’ve had the privilege of knowing and working with Mike Barge since I joined Hazeltine back in the spring of 2000. Aside from being one of the top teaching professionals in the country, Mike is an incredible friend and mentor to so many at HNGC. His ability to clearly communicate and simplify his teaching points helps members to quickly improve their swing mechanics and overall game.

Mike Barge not only understands "the golf swing" he gets to know your golf swing and helps you figure out how to fix your swing while you're playing. Best of all, you won't spend all season working on your "new swing." He's helped with me, my wife, and my oldest son and we all agree, you won't find anyone better than Mike Barge.

I have been with Mike for about 4 years now. From the very beginning he has helped transform my game to a whole different level. Mike is an amazing teacher, and on top of that, an amazing person.
