What is golf fitness?
One of the main goals of TPI training is to “increase player performance through a deep understanding of how the body functions during the golf swing.” Promoting good health as a player and good golf fitness are also central for TPI certified instructors.
Golf fitness isn’t about being the strongest player on the course, or having the longest drive. It’s about playing to your potential, preventing injury, and promoting good health as a golfer.
Improving your fitness as a golfer
Titleist certified instructors help players elevate performance by helping them understand the capabilities and limitations of their bodies. This means educating players to understand the connection between the physical movement of the swing and biomechanics.
There’s more than one way to swing a club. The most efficient swing for one golfer isn’t going to be the most efficient swing for another. A player’s swing is specific to their body.
TPI certified instructors analyze the player’s swing, and assess mobility, stability, flexibility, power, balance, among other factors. They then develop a custom golf conditioning program based on your evaluation. This may include strengthening, conditioning, physical rehabilitation, or swing coaching. Swing coaching will help you find your most efficient swing and even transfer through your body into your golf swing. They may also help players work on mental strategy.
Did you know that there are golf-specific injuries?
Overuse technique issues can result in injuries associated with golf swings. Titleist certified Golf Fitness Instructors can quickly identify and rehabilitate these injuries, and help players prevent these injuries from occurring in the future.
