The importance of fitness in golf is overlooked far too often. The goal of the golf swing is to produce an effective outcome dependent upon the golfer’s ability to perform a coordinated movement of multiple body parts, in multiple directions, all at the same time. Golfers of all ages and levels, for the most part and in many cases are not physically prepared for this activity resulting in an inefficient golf swing, poor performance, and an increased risk of both acute and chronic injury.
To address this, we have established an innovative Personal Golf Training program available to golfers of all ages and skill levels. You will work with Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Certified Fitness Instructors Kevin Martin and Dave LeVeque to assess your physical capabilities and create a personalized exercise regimen that will allow you to improve your golf-specific muscular strength, flexibility, balance, speed, and power. By taking part, your body will be able to swing the golf club more efficiently and effectively, improving ball contact, distance, and playing performance and satisfaction. You’ll also reduce/eliminate the triggers that lead up to both acute and chronic injury. You will play better golf, and feel great about it too!
For the first session, you will be taken through a 10-12 minute Performance Screen to assess any physical limitations that may hinder your movements in the golf swing. You will then hit a few golf shots to connect the results of the Screen to the outcomes and feelings that take place in your golf swing. Based on these results, we will create a personalized exercise routine that will correct any improper movements and allow you to move more efficiently in the golf swing and your daily life.
What’s the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI)?
The Titleist Performance Institute, or TPI, is the world’s leading educational organization dedicated to the study of how the human body functions in relation to the golf swing. Since its inception in 2003, TPI has studied thousands of golfers ranging from the top professional Tour players to weekend enthusiasts. An incredible amount of data on players of all shapes, sizes, ages, and fitness levels has been gathered during this time. Using this data, TPI discovered how a properly functioning body allows a player to swing a golf club in the most efficient way possible. Additionally, TPI has analyzed how physical limitations in a player’s body can adversely affect the golf swing and potentially lead to injury (per the TPI website, mytpi.com).
