Tour Striker Swing Tip


Jeff, If I were coaching you, I’d work on your width in small increments. I like your action, but you get super “narrow” at during transition and into the downswing as this pic shows. This is a good player swing problem, ala Phil Mickelson. I’d have you wear a kids water wing on your right elbow (Walmart; couple of bucks) and hit shots while trying not to squeeze it much. Your arms would be a bit more in front of your chest and your elbows a tiny bit closer together, allowing for a more leftward path through the ball.


Hope that makes sense!

RE: Thank you

Brian, thanks for the kind words. I'm glad the DVD has helped you and that the TS Pro is making a positive difference in your game. That question comes up a lot. The grip should be based around impact and that goes for the driver as well. You want the hands to support the blow. Hitting level or slightly up on the driver is great and the difference between down and up is fractional. Think about a clock; five minutes on a clock face is thirty degrees but the feel is very different, even for two degrees! The long drivers hit up on the ball, the equivalent of "1-minute" or 5-6 degrees. The PGA Tour is about level, even a degree downward.


Net answer: use your new grip and new feels and I bet you hit longer more compressed drives. Don't try and hit up or down.


Thanks for your support!

Just wanted to drop you an email and thank you for the Tour Striker Pro.  I've been using it for a few practice sessions now and I'm really starting to see an improvement in ball striking.  I did have one question.  I thought the grip section on your DVD was invaluable.  I didn't realize that I was not setting my hands correctly for impact.  Made a huge difference and allowed me to start hit the Tour Striker Pro right away.  My question is around the driver grip.  Should it be the same since I'm catching the ball on the upswing as opposed to hitting down on the ball?  I'm a little hesitant when I grab the big dog now that I've made a grip improvement.


Thanks for a great product and I wish you much success.

FW: Tour Striker Pro




Enjoyed speaking with you by phone yesterday.  Tried out the product this afternoon and WOW - did I have some work to do!  After 25 or so balls, I finally started getting them in flight.  Plan on using this training tool as often as possible until I've burned the swing into muscle memory.  Amazing how much real-time feedback this gives...looking forward to seeing what this will do for me long-term.


Thanks for putting out such an innovative tool!

I recently purchased Volume 1- Maximizing Distance from the Tour Striker Education Series. Martin Chuck does great job of explaining the principles on becoming a better ball striker. His mechanics and fundamentals are easy to follow. I carried his principles over to my practice sessions and instantly was striking the ball better than ever. In the video, examples are done mostly with the driver but have carry over using the Tour Striker. I am not claiming to be an expert in rating instruction but am speaking clearly on results I experienced. No, I am not on the payroll, if so I would not be living in this pipe with a dream of some day joing the tour. I think if your looking to strike and compress the ball better with your driver and irons you can't go wrong here. I really enjoyed the way Martin demonstrated from face on and down the line view. He also used great terms to help illustrate his points such as Load the Gun and Buggy whip, move the needle, and the feel of 45's to name a few. I am always looking to improve and thought I would share that this DVD is helping me do so.

Now if I could only hit a 5 foot putt Doah!
