Thanks for the note.
The learning curve with the TS takes a few steps.
1. You realize that a shaft leaning a tiny bit has advantages over a vertical or rearward leaning shaft.
2. The rounded leading edge on the club lets you hit the ground without fear of taking a big divot or hurting yourself. Divots don't hurt if they are taken correctly, with a forward leaning shaft.
3. Overcoming the fear of touching the ground will develop your "low point control." Fancy phrase for where your club touches the ground. Hopefully that point is at and on the target side of the ball.
Start off with half swings, waist high to waist high and touch the ground. Put a ball down and repeat. When you gain some confidence, go ahead and hit fuller shots.
Cheers and keep in touch with your progress.

Subject: using the club
I just purchased the Women's Tour Striker and am anxious to try it. I have been playing for about 6 months now and I have a tremendous problem of topping the ball and just not making consistent contact with the ball to be able to get it into the air. What can I do to improve this and will the Tour Striker help me correct the making better contact with the ground and getting the ball up into the air and at least traveling some distance rather than scooting more across the ground.
Thanks so much look forward to hearing back from you.
