How to use striker in a sentence?

  1. Briton Jason Palmer:

    I ’m quite a short hitter from the tee so therefore I need to be straight and accurate with my irons, my strength is my putting. You would n’t look at my long game and say, ‘ He’s a tremendous ball striker ’.

  2. Jurgen Klopp.Prior:

    It was a brilliant situation, it makes sense for a striker to go dribbling in the box because it's difficult for the defender to defend it clear. He was in a brilliant position in that moment -- if he could shoot, for sure it was a big chance as well.

  3. Jon Rahm:

    One of the reasons why the partnership worked so well is because we play a similar game, it’s a ball-striker’s golf course. ... It should suit our strengths very well.

  4. Laura Robson:

    She has always been an unbelievable ball striker but she’s improved her consistency and movement so much over the last year, she is hitting the ball better than ever and the win against Swiatek at the United Cup will give her a huge amount of confidence to believe that she can finally have that big breakthrough at the slams.

  5. Kyah Simon:

    As a striker, you pride yourself on scoring goals and I take full responsibility that I should have finished that, the game (would have been) 1-1 at that point, so that could definitely change the momentum of the game.
