Tour Striker Planemate


Recommended Posts

After about 2 months of using the PM, I'm noticing better, more consistent contact with my irons and wedges.  I'm still not sure about the followthrough finishing position.  I have better results with Monte's NTC; cast to 12 o'clock, which is a release of the trail wrist extension.

I haven't tried it yet with the driver.

Excellent for pitching and half shots! One area that immediately got better when I got the Planemate because I used to be all arms.

*snip*

^^^^^THIS!^^^^^

I have been working with the 7-day protocol exclusively (for the past 14 days 😄).  Someone said earlier that the improvement in chipping and pitching alone would be worth the price of admission, and I agree 100%!  Earlier this year, I had two short game lessons, and made what I thought was excellent progress, but when I was alone, without my instructor, it was as if I forgot everything that we worked on; the short game was costing me at least 5-6 shots per round.  Chunks, thins, sh-sh-sh-shanks.  You name it.

Focused on protocols 1-5, which I was able to practice without hitting balls.  Went to the short game practice area of the local course, and, after swallowing my pride, strapped on the PM and hit some chips and pitches.  It was glorious!  Solid contact every time, so that I was able to work on gapping clubs for different length pitch shots. 

One thing that was pretty funny was the feeling of hitting the same shots after taking off the PM.  The clubhead felt as if it was floating, and the entire club weighed nothing.  It took a few shots sans the PM to get back to hitting good, solid shots again.   For now, I am going to focus only on club back to parallel, until I am reasonably confident that I will not fall back into the lifelong habit of taking the club back waaay inside.

Finally, I contacted the guy I bought the used PM from, who informed me that he never did register it.  I did, and am able to access all of the videos.  Thanks to everyone for their excellent advice!

I wanted to show you an example of how much you can change with the Planemate.  I've still kept in contact with Martin through CoachNow and kept getting his feedback.  I've noticed the most improvement over the past year or so.  The first video is what Martin, and his team, recorded when I first showed up at the Tour Striker Academy.  The 2nd video is from 2 weeks ago.  These are a little less than 3 years apart.  I even got 3rd place in a member-guest tournament over the weekend!! 

Seriously can't say enough good things about Martin and his team!  If you ever get to go to the Tour Striker Academy, remember you get FREE coaching for life!  That's how I've been able to stay in contact with him throughout everything.

@goaliewales14 That's a huge difference in swing path.  Glad to see it is helping, i picked up a used one a few months ago and haven't had time to start using it as I need to be able to commit to doing it daily or at least most of the week, but it's encouraging to see your results.

Nice improvement. Curious if Martin has talked bout the working to get the armpits over the balls of the feet instead of over the toes?

Thanks!!  I will say that it'll take some time for the full swing.  The chipping and pitching came fairly quick, but the full swing was a grind!  My index right now took a HIT this year from trying to finish this grind!  Honestly, the offseason is a great time to start the full swing if you have a place you can hit off a simulator indoors.  I bought the membership at the PGA SS and started grinding there.

No.  Martin and I are focusing on a few small things right now and trying to let these changes settle in for a bit.  If you're talking about where your weight should be in your feet, he has a test at his school to go through some of that stuff.  That was nowhere near our major concerns when going through everything.
