Take Control of Your Game
Small improvements in all areas of your game normally translate into a steady consistent reduction in your handicap over time.
So far, so good, but how do you start this marvellous transformation? You need two things.
- The will to improve.
- The support of a mentor or coach who can guide you.
However, to experience significant improvement, over a shorter period of time you will have to want to improve, you will have to work hard, you will have to make sacrifices and you will have to be prepared to make changes. The rewards will be worth it. Have you got the will ?
If you simply want a lesson to get you back on track or you’d like to take your game to the next level, then it’s simply more ‘Fairways and Greens’ as I have all options covered. Time to Learn, Play and Improve!
Even if you could video yourself it’s extremely difficult to view yourself objectively – so now we’re looking at someone who can help. A friend may be able to help but is rarely able to offer an objective opinion and may not actually have the experience or training to identify which elements of your game need to be worked on first.
I would advocate that the best person to help you improve your game is a PGA qualified professional. The training they receive is invaluable and goes a long way to ensuring you will improve, whatever your current standard.
However, there is now a further step that many Tour Professionals have realised is essential to improving as much as possible. Golf like many sports is not played in isolation, many factors affect our ability to consistently play well – from our sleep patterns, to the reduction in mobility caused by injuries experienced in our youth. I and many other PGA coaches have embraced the methodology of the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) which aims to help you become the best player that you can be. Don’t just take my word on it, continue reading below…
The Titleist Performance Institute (TPI)
What is the TPI ?
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.
The TPI Approach -
Just knowing the data can’t help anybody, but the TPI course trains coaches to identify key areas suitable for improvement and guides them towards solutions which will help you, the player. The TPI trained coach will use a holistic approach and innovative technologies to help individual golfers improve their own particular performance.
Utilising advanced equipment fitting methods, detailed swing analysis, and science-based player conditioning TPI is the world’s premier player development center.
Just that think about the evidence – 25 of the Worlds top 35 players are advised by a TPI certified professional. Source – World Golf Rankings
A typical TPI Session - 90 mins
The 90 min session includes a swing appraisal & video capture to highlight & discuss golf swing issues.
This is followed by a 12 point physical screening process to locate any movement irregularities that hinder and restrict the golf swing.
A referral process and training program is then discussed & potentially implemented using relevant physical or medical expertise and assistance from one of the TPI Team.
