Examples of striker in a Sentence

  1. The FA:

    A comment posted on the Manchester United striker’s Instagram page was insulting, abusive, improper and brought the game into disrepute contrary to FA Rule E3.1, the post also constitutes an ‘aggravated breach’, which is defined in FA Rule E3.2, as it included reference, whether express or implied, to colour and/or race and/or ethnic origin.

  2. 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 ’.

  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. Notah Begay III:

    Tiger can ride a cart, he can drive up basically to the golf ball and almost onto the green, so the walking might not be as much of a stress on the leg, but, also, he can play Charlie’s drives. I covered them for the majority of that event last year, and Charlie was hitting most of the drives because of where his tees are at, and he’s such a good ball striker that they were taking advantage of his drives because they were much farther than where Tiger’s balls were off the tee. Those are two critical things that I think might factor into him possibly showing up in a couple weeks with Charlie. I know the world would love to see it.

  5. Kasper Hjulmand:

    I think we have a star striker in Kasper.
