“Compression”… the magic word in golf that means you’ve successfully transferred all the energy from your swing into the golf ball.
If you feel like you hit a beautiful shot but the ball comes up short, you may have struck the ball in the center of your club but you didn’t compress the ball. It works the other way too. When you hit the perfect 7 iron 140 yards out and ball sails 150… right over the top of the flag stick. You connected with the center of your face and compressed the ball, transferring all of the energy from your swing and club into the golf ball.
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of compressing a golf ball with a centered strike.
In today’s video, Martin Chuck explains how to use a Dollar Bill and the Tour Striker 7 Iron to help you consistently compress the golf ball.
The Tour Striker Training Clubs are designed to intuitively help you compress the ball. The raised leading edge and smaller face forces you to get your hands ahead of the ball and use the center of the face in order to achieve an effective strike.
Many people state that they hit the ball further with their Tour Striker Training Clubs. This is because they are dynamically de-lofting the club at impact, the same way the best ball strikers in the world do, and collecting the ball with the center of the face. If this is you, work with your Tour Striker Clubs until you can make the same move with your own clubs. You’ll have longer, crisper, consistent shots where you feel like you can control the ball.
