NEW YORK, Nov. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SiriusXM announced today that Jim McLean, one of the country's leading golf instructors, has joined the roster of hosts on SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio (channel 93 on XM, channel 208 on Sirius Premier).

Starting in 2014 McLean, owner of the world renowned Jim McLean Golf Schools, will join fellow PGA professional Jeff Warne to host Serious Golf, a call-in show airing twice a week and dedicated to providing swing tips and instruction for listeners nationwide.  Golfers at any level of the game, from those who are just picking up the game to seasoned players looking to hone their skills, are encouraged to dial in to the show for tutoring and advice.  An announcement with more details, including the show's launch date and airtimes, will be made in the coming weeks.

"I'm very excited to join SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio to do a show featuring golf instruction," said McLean.  "My livelihood is based solely on teaching the game of golf.  I teach golf to beginners and the best players in the world at my golf schools, and I love to talk about every aspect of instruction."

"Jim and Jeff have dedicated their careers to helping golfers lower their scores and enjoy the game more and we are thrilled to have them contribute their expertise to SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio," said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM's President and Chief Content Officer.  "They have a tremendous knack for communicating the nuances of the swing and golf in general to their students.  This show will appeal to players at all levels of the game by giving them access to two of the top teachers in America."

Jim McLean owns and operates the top golf schools worldwide, 10 in total. The Jim McLean Golf Schools world headquarters is located at the famous Trump National Doral in Miami, FL, where Jim oversees an operation that includes 24 teachers and six PGA assistants.  Jim has been ranked as one of the top three teachers in America for two decades and has taught some of the greatest players on both the PGA TOUR and LPGA tour. This includes players like Tom Kite, Hal Sutton, Keegan Bradley, Bernard Langer, Erik Compton, Brad Faxon, Dana Quigley, Lenny Mattiace, plus #1 ranked Cristie Kerr, and current LPGA sensation Lexi Thompson

McLean has been a teacher to golf professionals worldwide and is regarded as one of the very top golf swing researchers in the game.  He has been a PGA Master Professional since 1990 and has led more than 50 national teaching workshops for the PGA.  Jim has authored 11 top selling golf instruction books, produced over 20 DVDs, and writes full time for Golf Digest magazine. His Eight Step Golf DVD is the all time #1 selling DVD on the Golf Channel.  Jim worked at the Golf Channel for 10 years and did the first reality show on that channel, Breaking 100.  His DVD Ben Hogan:The Golf Swing won six major national awards. Jim wrote three cover piece articles in Golf Magazine for The X Factor, wrote The X Factor book, produced The X Factor DVD, and did a 10-part X Factor golf show series for the Golf Channel. His X Factor research has been used in golf biomechanics around the globe. 

Jim has competed on the PGA TOUR, played in the U.S. Open, the U.S. Senior Open, the U.S. Amateur and the U.S. Junior Amateur, and also competed in the Masters, where he made the cut.  He was an All-American at the University of Houston and has won more than 50 Junior and Amateur titles. 

Jeff Warne is the Director of Golf at The Bridge, located in Bridgehampton, New York, on Long Island's prestigious East End.  He previously was Jim McLean's Director of Instruction at Sleepy Hollow CC in New York, as well as a Lead Instructor at McLean's school at Doral.  Prior to coming to The Bridge, Jeff was the Director of Instruction at The Atlantic Golf Club, and was named to GOLF Magazine's inaugural Top 100 Teachers list.   The 2013 Long Island Senior Open Champion, he competes regularly in the MET Section of the PGA, which is widely regarded as the most competitive PGA playing section in the country.  In addition to his teaching abilities, Jeff has a passion for great golf courses and golf architecture, and has played more than 120 of the great courses of the UK and Ireland, and has a wealth of information not just on the shots that are required to play these courses, but also on which ones to play and why.

Launched in 2005, SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio offers listeners nationwide live play-by-play coverage of PGA TOUR events as well as major championship tournaments, plus live call-in talk shows offering news, analysis, equipment reviews and more.
