Canadian Martin Chuck, founder of the Tour Striker Golf Academy in Phoenix, Ariz., and one of GOLF’s Top 100 Teachers, is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the world of instruction. But don’t sleep on his gear knowledge.
A recent chat with Chuck on the “Fully Equipped” podcast produced insights that should be heeded during your next testing session. Read highlights from Chuck’s appearance below, and listen to the entire episode of Fully Equipped here.
ON THE IMPORTANCE OF A CLUBFITTING
“I tell people all the time: If you love this game, you’ve earned good gear. Get some clubs in your hands that are truly great with the help of a fitter, like True Spec Golf, of course. It doesn’t matter who makes them. If you can find the right set of clubs, golf is so much more enjoyable.”
THE TOUR PRO’S SWING HE’D WANT TO EMULATE
“I’d have to go with Rory McIlroy. For a dude who’s not that big, he can flat smash it. He’s fun to watch because when he pulls driver out, it’s high launch, low spin, baby draw — and it’s flying 300 yards. If I had to morph into a golf swing, it’d be Rory all day.”
