Innovative Concepts Tour Sticks
Tour Sticks work by taking one or two of the fiberglass rods provided and placing the alignment sticks in one of the numerous formations that target various aspects of the golf swing. Many tour players use alignment sticks before a tournament in order to assure their alignment is correct. An instructional flyer is included with the product illustrating a number of drills for the user.
At address your body (feet, knees, hips, forearms, shoulders and eyes) should be positioned parallel to the target line. To work on your alignment, lay two Tour Sticks on the ground parallel to your target creating the image of a railroad track. The body will be on the inside rail and the ball on the outside rail.
Tour Sticks can assist with ball position by placing two sticks in a T shape, one parallel to the target and the other the appropriate distance back from the front foot as in the above picture.
The gateway drill is used to ensure that a player is starting the ball on the intended target line. This is achieved by placing two Tour Sticks in the ground about 6-12 inches apart and 10 feet in front of you aimed at the intended target on a slight angle facing away from the golfer. The objective is to then hit shots that start between the two Tour Sticks.
Putting - Straight Back & Straight Through:
Place two Tour Sticks on the ground parallel to the target line and slightly wider than the putter head. With the ball placed in the center of the two sticks the objective is to take the putter back and through without hitting the sticks.
Putting - Arc Style:
Like straight back and through putting, the Arc Style putting drill is accomplished by placing two Tour Sticks on the ground parallel to the target line. However in this instance, one stick is placed approximately two inches from the ball (the outside track) the other at a comfortable distance from the ball to allow alignment of the feet and body. The correct stroke is achieved by taking the putter back and through in an arc motion with the shoulders controlling the stroke. If done correctly, the putter will not touch the sticks. If a golfer takes the putter from the inside out or outside in, the error will evidenced by the player hitting the Tour Stick either prior to or after hitting the ball.
