Jeff Ritter Golf and Martin Chuck’s Tour Striker Golf Academies Launch New Partnership at The Raven Golf Club - Phoenix
PHOENIX, Arizona – Two of the most innovative brands in golf instruction, Jeff Ritter Golf and Martin Chuck’s Tour Striker Golf Academies (JRG/TSGA) have announced the launch of a new instruction program set to open this fall at The Raven Golf Club – Phoenix. The Raven is managed by OB Sports and is recognized as one of the top daily fee golf courses in the United States.
According to OB Sports President and COO Phil Green, selecting the dynamic duo to headline the Raven’s coaching programs was an easy choice. “When you look at what these two guys have done individually creating and marketing innovative coaching programs, it’s exciting to consider what their team effort can do for Raven Golf Club,” said Green. “We expect golfers will come from near and far to benefit from the instruction of Jeff Ritter and Martin Chuck.”
One of Golf Digest’s Best Young Teachers in America, Ritter is one of the world’s most prominent coaches with a presence that reaches all corners of the globe. A consistent presence in the world of golf media, Ritter’s creative approach to the game has appeared endlessly across print, television and radio, including frequent content showcased with Golf Digest magazine.
Martin Chuck is the inventor of Tour Striker Training Products, the highly successful series of golf learning aids endorsed by CBS Commentator Gary McCord. As success of the Tour Striker brand grew, Chuck launched the Tour Striker Academies, which now operate programs throughout the country.
According to Chuck, his love for teaching was the impetus behind the development of his many training tools for golfers.
“I’ve always been a teacher first and a design guy second,” said Chuck. “Once the Tour Striker really took off, I knew I’d find my way back to the lesson tee full time. This partnership allows me to keep growing the Tour Striker coaching brand, while still dedicating ample time towards the development of new products. It’s really a perfect fit.”
Along with the progressive vision of The Raven Golf Club Management Team, OB Sports, long-time friends Ritter and Chuck saw the opportunity to create a program unrivaled in innovation and productivity to meet the needs of all players regardless of skill level or age group. “I had worked for years on my own building a successful coaching brand,” said Ritter. “But what I missed most was the creative process associated with collaborating with others. The opportunity to work with someone as talented as Martin to build this new program is something that I’m extremely excited about.”
Proponents of a holistic approach to learning, JRG/TSGA “Integrated Coaching” programs will offer cutting edge modalities designed to unlock a player’s true potential while providing fun and creative solutions for enhanced physical, emotional and nutritional performance.
Designed to give golfers the tools and support to achieve any goal, JRG/TSGA programs include: Private Lessons, Group Clinics, Corporate Events, Comprehensive Schools, Advanced Fitting Resources, Junior Golf Development and more.
