Martin Chuck - what do you think of his swing?

14 posts in this topic

It looks simple and copyable by most people? Gets all 5 keys (from what I can see, he definitely gets 1, 2 and 3)? Am I off-base in saying that?

Of course it's good. We like Martin and he's doing good work.

I'm more interested in discussing the guy in the background. :-)

Just a guess, would key#1 be his priority based on the limited view?

I believe he's the inventor of the tour striker but I may be wrong?

Who is he?  Web.com player?

I am on some spam list for Revolution golf (I must've signed up for something sometime), and I get tons of emails. They are 1 of 3 things: Jim McLean at his school, Martin Chuck at some gorgeous location out west, or Peter Kessler in a podcast. Some of the content is quite good, but it seems to be random tips, not an overall methodology that I can glean from it all (interspersed with lots of sales pitches).

Correct.  Great product.

He's got a great, compact swing. If I remember right, he was taught by George Knudson and it shows. Very effective instructor, too. I've learned a lot from following his YouTube channel.

First 3 Keys look really good to me.  I don't know what his miss tends to be or what he wants to improve but they would probably fall under Keys 4 or 5 (like most good players).  Martin is a teaching pro but from what I've heard also a good player, plus handicap territory.

Just curious, why would you guess Key #1?  Not trying to put you on the spot but maybe I can clear a misconception you have.  His head is pretty dang steady.

Heh heh, I think he's referring to the guy in the background. I notice he has an alignment rod in front of him probably for a drill. It looks to me he's really trying to apply something taught post lesson.

Sorry Mike, I was talking about the guy in the background. I'm certainly not good enough to be diagnosing anyone but I thought it would be fun to try a guess. I'm thinking that getting this guy's (in the background) head more steady will possibly clean up the weight shift a little bit too. I'm interested in learning how you guys establish the priority for a player, I'm guessing it's about finding one piece that will impact one or more other pieces as a by-product?

Exactly the piece that will help the golfer hit the ball better now and/or fixing the piece that is leading to multiple issues.  Not about making things perfect, just making things better, more efficient.  The first 3 Keys are geared towards solid contact/hitting the ball first, so you tend to consider those first.  Just depends on what issue the golfer has.

With the golfer in the background, what stands out to me the most is the lack of torso rotation, maybe he's just hitting half shots, but you can see how limited his turn is.
