Honma Golf has named renowned golf instructor and Tour Striker Golf Academy Founder Martin Chuck the brand’s newest ambassador. Chuck, named one of the “50 Best Teachers in America” by Golf Digest and a GOLF Magazine Top 100 Teacher, is now promoting the Honma brand through his social media channels, on his TourStriker.com website and is also integrating his Honma affiliation into his regular instructional content on Golf Channel’s Golf Pass platform (www.golfpass.com).
Honma is also now well-represented at Chuck’s popular Tour Striker Golf Academy schools and camps at The Raven Golf Club Phoenix (AZ), where students can demo Honma equipment and have the option to be custom fit by at The Raven’s on-site True Spec Golf location.
“Martin Chuck is one of the industry’s most credible, influential and creative teaching professionals. We’re thrilled to welcome such an energetic, respected thought leader as Martin to the Honma family,” said Honma Vice President of Marketing, Brad Holder. “He’s built a brand golfers trust and a community of Tour Striker devotees who are playing better golf thanks to Martin’s expert instruction and easy, informative communication style.”
Beginning Sept. 21, Chuck will host a daily Honma Happy Hour for 21 consecutive days to increase consumer awareness of Honma’s latest lines of Tour Release family of clubs.
Chuck, a Canadian-born former touring professional and club pro, has seemed destined for a life in golf since his early years, having shagged balls for Canadian legend Moe Norman. He also worked as a range attendant for Hall of Famer George Knudson before the age of 10. Today, his Tour Striker brand includes Chuck’s in-person and online teaching academies, the full line of Tour Striker training aids, junior coaching and video instruction.
Plans call for Chuck to produce weekly video tips that will be, “Brought to you by Honma Golf and Nike Apparel.” The videos will feature Honma equipment and performance stories built into Chuck’s lessons.
Thousands who follow Chuck’s @martinchuckpga social media accounts will see him use and teach with Honma up close and personal.
“I’m super pumped to be teaming up with HonmaGolf as a brand ambassador,” Chuck said. “Their TR20 line is absolutely fantastic, and the new equipment launching soon is even better.”
