He is one of a select group of PGA Instructors in Minnesota certified in the use of Trackman and used it in the development and proving-out of the Chiliwacker. As Eric puts it, “I use the Chiliwacker and Trackman to fine tune my game and I use both with my students, helping them get better faster than I had ever imagined. The Chiliwacker provides the “feel” of the golf swing and Trackman verifies the results.”
