post #1 of 169
Thread Starter 
I am looking to purchase the Tour Striker Pro to improve my ball striking, Has anyone used it and what you think of it? Did it improve your game?

Re: Tour Striker Training Aid

Haven't used it. Theory behind it seems sound, but there are less expensive ways to practice getting the shaft lean while using your own clubs.

Re: Tour Striker Training Aid

Ive never seen it before, but it looks like it could work.. Are you really suppose to have your hands that far in front of the clubhead to hit it well, it almost seems like they are making you deloft your club too much, no?

Maybe it's meant to ingrain feel?

Like Erik said, I'm plenty happy with holding a stick on the end of my club and not stabbing myself with it.

Re: Tour Striker Training Aid

Thanks guys,
Erik, what ways would you recommend to practice to get the shaft lean and the ball strike more consistent. Even though I play fairly well, I do still have tendencies not to leave a divot at all or a little behind the ball or right under. It's it's obvious to me that I am hitting the ball with bottom of my club head and not the middle "sweet spot".
I think what they stress is your impact zone is suppose to be different then your setup position, which I have known before, but it's hard to make it happened without a tool since when making a full swing, it's hard to feel the difference.
Are there other cheaper tools or maybe even drills to do to achive the same goal?
Thanks.

The simplest drill would be to work on your chipping and slowly start moving to longer swings.

Retain the angle between the right forearm and the shaft of the club, too - don't let that right arm roll over (face-on view).

Re: Tour Striker Training Aid

I'm getting one soon and I'll be able to get back to you guys about it shortly. It looks intersting. We'll see how it works.

I have never had the chance to use one but I love the concept - looking forward to see if anyone else has insight here.

Re: Tour Striker Training Aid

I found that product online just by chance last fall, and been following the web-site every now and then since. I also just saw the infomercial on the Golf Channel earlier this week, and it's pretty well done. I'd like to get one, but with a somewhat limited golf budget there are other things I can spend the $100 on. I would love to hear from anyone that's used one.

Also, the inventor is a PGA pro, and I've sent him some emails with questions. He's always responded within a day, so he seems to really be into his product.

Re: Tour Striker Training Aid

Ok, just watched the commercial for this new product and it seems to make sense. I wonder if it truely teaches you how to keep the hands in front at impact?

Thoughts??

Re: Tour Striker Training Aid

I've actually heard some really good things about it. My cousin has one and loves to hit it a few times a week at the range just as a check up kind of. I've read some reviews online about it that have always sounded positive as well. If you feel like you're having trouble keeping your hands in front of the ball and hitting the ball first before the ground then it may be worth a shot.

Re: Tour Striker Training Aid

Thanks for the reply, guess I will have to do some more research.
