Martin Chuck

After a long and storied path as a golf professional, Martin started the Tour Striker Golf Academy in the Spring of 2011 and it has become one of the most successful Golf Academy and Coaching Programs in North America.

Martin has consulted and taught PGA Tour Winners, Ryder Cup, President’s Cup and Major Champions. Martin is not a traveling Tour Coach. His preference is to stay home with his family and help Amateur golfers improve their games. During summer months, escaping the heat of Phoenix, he takes his family and Tour Striker Golf Academy on the road to various facilities in the US, Canada and abroad.

Martin is an alumnus of the New Mexico State University Professional Golf Management Program.
