It's Happy Hour time! Go follow Tour Striker Golf Academy for the best tips in the game from our favorite golf coach and training aid inventor, Martin Chuck.

Beverages optional.
Hey Tour Striker Nation,

Did you see Martin's most recent tip for chipping?

Go follow Tour Striker Golf Academy and never miss a tip from the Southwest PGA Coach of the Year.
If you have gone through the PlaneMate Protocols, you probably noticed that there are a lot of one arm short shot drills. One arm drills help golfers feel connected throughout their entire swing. Check out Friday's newsletter to gain better connection by using the essential 5 ball progression drill!

Do you early extend in your swing???.....You should probably raise your hand because statistics show about 2/3 of us do!

Hopefully you checked out Martin Chuck’s drill - Reverse Range Picker Drill GOLFPASS Tour Striker Golf Academy

What I want to talk about are some possible physical causes that may be contributing to your early extension.

There are 3 main causes that could lead to early extension in your swing:

1. Lack of internal rotation of the lead hip
2. The ability to separate the upper and lower body - disassociate
3. Your ability to stabilize you lower body

This week I'm going to go over each of these and show you a way you can assess whether you have one of those physical limitations and if you do I'll show you some simple exercises that you can do to stop you from early extending and get you swinging better.

So the first cause - internal hip rotation - can be assessed by performing a Lower Quarter Rotation test. TPI

Let’s get to it!

I just learned that I can flip videos while editing on an iPhone or iPad!! I do it with my @jcvideosystems all the time.

Sometimes I like to look at left handed golfers flipped to right handed for a moment.

Bizarre how it’s harder for me to see nuances with lefties as easily as I can w right handers. My eyes play tricks on me.

This was a left handed shot flipped to righty. @philmickelson let’s swap clubs and whip it around the rock.

Sometimes as coaches we need to lift up the hood and replace the carburetor.

Other times, it’s simply a loose nut causing the problems.

Don’t overthink things. Here’s a snippet from an old presentation you might enjoy.

Helping this whipper snapper with his timing and tempo. @nikohaas04

The @lagshotgolf is fantastic for the better player who pulls on the handle too hard. A few with the Lag Shot gave this speedy young man (170 mph ball speed) a better sense of swing shape and face control. This high school hockey player was too “jumpy and jumpy,” requiring a lot of hand save.

Nice work today, Niko!!

The one and only #tigerwoods

So great to see him back on the course, especially with his son, Charlie. I hope his leg continues to heal and gets strong enough for the riggers of the @pgatour

He’s an absolute super star and this is reminiscent of Ben Hogan’s story.

Tiger has a different swing. It used to be more of a slingshot creating power and now it’s more muscular with excellent positions.

There are a lot of way to do it.

A little blurb about gripping the club effectively.

Coaches don’t waiver on good grips. Developing golfers; Yes, you can play good golf with an awkward grip, but it sure is easier to hit a greater variety of shots if your hands get on the club nicely. Most players in the HOF have functional grips. It’s not that hard!

Man, this kid is fun to watch. Besides his awesome golf swing, his smile is infectious. You can see that he has a blast playing golf with his dad. I loved playing golf with my dad, too.❤️

This awesome fellow had what Charles Barkley had going on; a steep delivery w a shut face. He’s on the road to recovery.

His backswing was almost 3 seconds long. To put that into perspective, a tour player could almost hit three shots in that time.

I put him on the @reflexarcgolf to blow his mind about backswing energy and timing. It did and it worked. Yes, there are still swing issues, but at least he can finish the road before they lock the gate to the golf course.

Lip out and then a one hop dunk! Way to go, Chris!

He was a little too steep. This tall dude needed a more rounded action. I told him about the co-star in Fantasy Island in 1975. #iykyk

Grip and wrist conditions, a huge part of getting better at a ball striker.

This fellow had a good grip, but a lot of left wrist cup in transition. He’d hang back to buy time to square the face. He’d have to swing “easy” to have any control. The frisbee work made sense to him and helped him realize the orbit of the club head came from wrist and pivot behaviors.

That’s fine fellow came in for a lesson yesterday. We spent a lot of time early in the session developing his grip and a starting routine. We went to hit the driver and I noticed that he did not have enough hand path travel. Basically his swing was too short to hit it really hard. If you want to hammer your driver, you have to use your physicality, which includes good hammering hand action. To help him, I immediately grabbed the @lagshotgolf driver.

Watch these three swings and a 5 mph swing speed gain. His club COM traveling farther, coupled with his excellent wrist conditions just added controlled power!

-15 club path across the ball with his first few tee balls and he had a functional grip!

Rx:

Set up routine: how to walk into the shot and aim the face (red rope)

Wrist conditions: his right wrist stayed flat-ish at the top. We used the @tourstrikergolf Educator and the “under over” drill to pitch the COM behind him so he could pivot and release the club.

Good fun!

@johndalyll displays a fantastic and powerful swing with a few big changes compared to his Major winning Pops!

I played with his Dad in the 90’s. Crazy talent and fun guy to play with.

Young JD has a bright future 📈🔥

Five years ago with my friend and mentor, Mike LaBauve @labauvegolf

He’s one of the best teachers in the history of golf.

This was my fifth lesson with Mike. My fourth lesson was in 1991 😂, 27 years before this one.

He was working on getting me more dynamic. We did some tipped over baseball drills. I wasn’t too bad for a hockey player from Canada 🇨🇦 🤪

Sandy and Mike, let’s get together soon. I miss you guys.

Do you want compressed, controlled ball flight? Do you want the sound of angels from impact?🙋🏻‍♂️

Check out this video of Mac O’Grady. Great “sling” energizes the club to the top, then watch the “floaty pounce” as he pressures the ground.

Take note of the left knee and shoulder behavior. Both move in a manner to allow him to control his swing bottom.

Most “Amateur Hours” per @manoloteachesgolf 😆 rock their lead shoulder up and hang back.

Stabby, flinchy pitch shots? Have you lost your confidence? Do avoid the 🤮 zone from 20-50 yards?

If this is you, get in some swings with the @lagshotgolf wedge and get your groove back. Check out their site to learn more. #rhythm #golf #golflesson #golftips

Here’s a putting drill I developed giving props to my friend @decade_golf

16 tees and a 20’ piece of string.

Create these gates by looping the string around 1’ gates/tees.

Putt past the thresholds, but NO TOUCHY DA STRING!

Way harder than it looks.

Start at 4’. This is five putts, 4 to 8’.

Lmk your record.

Professional golfer @bfan_tastic joined us at the Tour Striker Golf Academy for three days of practice and refinement.

She’s working on the COM behavior and how it plays against her wrist conditions. To help her awareness, she’s using my @tourstrikergolf Educator; specifically the “Under Over” drill you can watch on my website.

Great to have an awesome pro at the camp. The newer golfers watch the process and realize the commitment to routine and rehearsal swings.

What? You can’t extend your body and get those hips through the shot? Well, now you can.

Three easy payments of 69.95🤣

I had this fleeting thought and my student was cool enough to go along with it for a moment. That said, he certainly felt what I was up to.

It reminded me of a funny story Jeff Ritter told me long ago @mttgolf 🤣

Jim Furyk in his comfort zone (….and the middle of the fairway) He dissected Phoenix Country Club yesterday 👏🏼👏🏼 while playing with Phil.

Here’s a basic pitch, carrying the ball 15-18 yards before run out.

Two things @manoloteachesgolf “amateur hours” don’t do…

Jim has his 👣 almost touching and he keeps his 👕 moving.

The amateurs who struggle w this basic scoring shot swing have a wide base and they don’t move their chest 🤔

The sequence of a pivot driven pitch shot.

So much can be developed from this skill into full swings.

Most students over accelerate the sequence and have a hard time compressing the golf ball.

This video is funny because this awesome lady connects with a ball and hits it around 70 yards, almost taking out the boys from @truespecgolf
