The Titleist Performance Institute has spent the last 10 years studying the world’s greatest players analysing how their body movements can directly affect the golf swing.
Have you ever wondered how someone such as Jim Furyk won the U.S. Open with his unconventional golf swing? Or have you ever been amazed how players such as Raymond Floyd or John Daly have had successful careers with such unorthodox golf swings?
The answers lie in how they generate speed and transfer this speed into their golf swing. The amazing thing is that all great ball strikers have the same kinematic sequence, which is the ability to generate speed and transfer energy through their bodies. If you where to compare Ernie Els’ kinematic sequence to Jim Furyk’s there would be very little difference.
TPI’s Philosophy of the golf 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 that there is one efficient way for all golfers to swing a club and it is based on what they can physically do.”
We are aware that swing faults can be directly related to the physical limitations of a person which can include lack of flexibility, reduced mobility, poor range of body motions, stability issues, and poor strength and conditioning levels. All of these result in the inability to sequence the movements of the golf swing in the correct order.
We use the Titleist Performance Institute for golf specific health and fitness information. Through years of meticulous research and testing carried out on the world’s top golfers, TPI has pinpointed the physical limitations that result in specific swing flaws. Following the TPI guidelines we can carry out a physical screening of a golfer, identify their physical issues, and recommend TPI certified exercises to resolve the problem.
TPI plays a vital role in team and individual player programs throughout the season. Michael and his team are qualified TPI fitness instructors allowing them to coach and guide clients through the use of TPI, while also helping them set up their own online ‘MyTPI’ accounts. This offers them exhaustive information on golf specific exercises, workouts, and programs relating to their individual swing.
