Improve Your Swing for a Better Game
Discover how a well-functioning body can help you dependably swing your club
What you’ll get with your Golf Movement Assessment:
We focus programming efforts on assessments conducted prior to your initial workout. Appropriately conducted assessments are needed to develop a baseline value for different exercises that will be completed in your exercise program.
The detection of muscle imbalances, postural abnormalities, and other health concerns can reveal necessary information about you. We can then develop the best movement patterns for your new exercise program.
The TPI Level 1 Physical Screen will give you insight into your body-swing connection.
TPI’s Philosophy of the Swing
We don't believe there is one way to swing a club. We believe there are an infinite number of ways to swing a club. But we do believe there is one efficient way for everyone to swing a club and it is based on what they can physically do.
The screen will uncover any mobility problem that may be affecting your swing
Mobility combines a normal joint range of motion and proper muscle flexibility, necessary for proper mechanics and injury prevention. The mobility of your joints allows your body to move freely, giving you the ability to perform any motion without sacrificing stability. Mobility allows elastic energy generation between muscles, establishing a base for efficient power production.
During the assessment process, we will also evaluate how stable you are
Stability is the ability of the body to remain unchanged or aligned in the presence of change or outside forces. Stability is created by combining balance, strength, and muscular endurance. Keeping one part of the body secure while stretching and contracting adjacent segments allows you to generate speed and maintain a consistent posture throughout the golf swing.
We will identify and address muscle imbalances
Muscle imbalances are often caused by lifestyle factors, habituated movement patterns, overuse, and misuse of tonic muscles (used for holding posture) and phasic muscles (used for dynamic movement). Muscle imbalances impact posture and the ability to move with proficiency.
So how can movement and stability issues affect your swing?
It comes down to the kinematic sequence. Movement issues can alter the kinematic sequence of your swing, where movement initiates from the lower body/pelvis, then the thorax, followed by the arms, and the club last. So, for example, if you are struggling with your swing, you may have a sequencing problem due to a movement issue in your lower body that prevents force from passing through to your upper body and arms in a continuous manner. In addition, if there are red flags on your assessment, often, those findings are linked to specific sub-optimal swing characteristics that we can identify.
Titleist Performance Institute
Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) is the earth’s leading educational organization dedicated to analyzing how the human body functions with your golf swing.
Since its inception, TPI has studied thousands of golfers ranging from the top professional Tour players to weekend enthusiasts since 2003. During this time, an incredible amount of data on players of all shapes, sizes, ages, and fitness levels has been gathered. Consequently, TPI discovered how a properly functioning body allows a player to swing a golf club in the most efficient way possible. TPI has also analyzed how physical limitations in a player’s body can adversely affect the golf swing and potentially lead to injury.
Experience TPI’s patented assessment process and corrective strategy the pros already know. Upon completion, you’ll get a detailed report to help identify ways to better your play.
