Wow, even my mentor still top the ball. How am I going to hit it ? I have just order one i7 ( standard one not pro as I doubt I can swing with the pro model with my swing speed ) .. With more practice, I can start hitting down on the ball.

It is a great training aid ..looking forward for it ... Laughing

Sounds interesting...how do i know whether i should get the regular version or tour version? Is the regular version good enough and/or the tour version too difficult?

Bro, answer is on another post.. I borrow this from frostee. Better order in BF before stock run out;

Which Tour Striker Club is Right for Me?

The Regular Tour Striker is targeted for mid-to-high handicap golfers and slower swing speeds (under 90 mph with driver), while the Tour Striker Pro is geared for dedicated practicers with higher swing speeds and a handicap of 10 or less. In addition, we offer a Tour Striker for women and younger players who wish to improve their game. The ladies/junior model is slightly shorter than the regular Tour Striker (35 inches vs. 36 inches) and has a graphite shaft appropriate for women and juniors.

The Tour Striker and Tour Striker Pro training club is cast of 433 stainless steel. The vibration dampening logo affixed within the back cavity reduces shock on mis-hit shots while developing ball striking skills.

Tour Striker Training Irons are available at :-

Steel Shaft : SGD $129.90/pc
Graphite Shaft : SGD $139.90/pc

had an interesting thot after reading the posts as many users actually claimed to achieve more distance after using the equipment.

From the pictures, it seems the the impact area of the tour striker is much higher up than the usual sweet spot areas of normal clubs. In order to strike this impact zone, i foresee the way to do it will be doing pressing the club down towards the ground during the down swing - Which is effectively delofting the club, resulting in the gain in distance.

I am a high handicapper and this is how I visualise the effects are. Can some guru share if what I relate is correct?

1 sentence:

Downward strike+forward shaft lean = true loft.

Great training aid for those who like to scoop or pick at the ball.

I have been having problem recently with my swing, its been erratic and I have been having serious duffing session in the greens and even a pinch & chip was big disaster. Its been frustrating. Whats makes it worst, I have nothing to show after playing 4 yrs... double sigh...

Then I made up mind, I will leave all my clubs in the car and only will be swinging with Tourstriker SW. I can tell you, the 1st 50 was nasty...seriously nasty with thins and tops then hooks. The next 40 balls was painfully getting better. The 2nd 90 balls still needed some effort but you can start seeing progress when can hear the sound impact and the ball compressing against the clubs face. Yeah, that feels damn solid whack!

To my surprise I was able to quickly grasp the feel and motion of my arms and hands should be when I swing the club to the point of impact. Freaking WOW! You never know how well you can really swing until you really give this Tourstriker thingy a serious try. I started with 2 rounds of range time whacking 90 balls each time and only swinging with this.

If you dont have this, you ought to get one... Be patient with it, you need some time to get adjusted to using this aid. Give its some time and you realize you are actually hitting the ball much much better than what you used to hit. This aid is seriously underrated, it deserve much more attention and a lot of folks will actually play better golf with it.

P/s: To da den boss... I havent said this bef... My humble appreciation and thanks for recommending this. It made golf much easier. Thanks for bring this product in and now in my hands.

we forgot about the humble tourstriker...as always.

i had James Gobold and Alex Belt try them this week and they absolute understand the concept after the 2nd shot. in fact James like it so much, its now at his academy Motion Capture Golf at Punggol.

as for Alex, i have not seen anyone strike the ball so well and even work the ball on a pro 7X.

Anyone selling the tourstriker? Would like to try it out. I figure that I'm scooping the ball cause my balls doesn't rocket off the club but goes up high and drops. Not much distance.

I made a point to use this every time i visit the range. On alternate days, its just TS SW and my SW. Would agree that of all the aid that I bought, this is the best one out there.
