    Noah Wolf is the Founder and CEO of TOUR Aim Golf. An engineer by trade, Noah's golf was inconsistent due to limited practice time and poor range habits. He tried swing aids and alignment sticks but found them cumbersome and difficult to use. After fruitlessly hitting hundreds of balls, not paying attention to alignment and aim, he developed some bad swing habits. These translated into high scores and lots of lost balls. So, with the sole focus of making practicing golf more effective and efficient, Noah invented and created Tour Aim. He joins #OntheMark to tell the story about the TOUR Aim Alignment and Golf Swing Aid and how it came to prominence on The PGA TOUR.  He, with the help on Mark Immelman, illustrates its many functions that help improve fundamentals like Alignment, Aim, Target Sighting and Acquisition, Swing and Stroke Path, and Swing Plane and Direction.
