What is it and what does it mean to you?
What is it?
The Titleist Performance Institute is a 33 acre meticulously maintained research and development facility in Oceanside, California. The concept, facility and staff are commited to a one of a kind investment in golf's future.
The three facets for golfer development:
- 3 Dimensional motion capture technology is used to allow golfers to realize every detail of their swing. More importantly, how the movement of their body parts affect that motion.
- Equipment fitting specialists use launch monitors that measure club head speed, launch angle, spin rate and ball speed off the club face. They use this data to determine the ideal clubs to fit individuals' swings.
- A fully functional strength and conditioning studio was designed to help fitness professionals create programs for golfers to achieve and maintain golf swing efficient bodies.
What does it mean to you?
The TPI team created a program to educate golf, medical and fitness professionals to discover and address biomechanical deficiencies.
TPI Certification takes golf fitness to a new level. A few simple tests will identify strengths and weaknesses in your biomechanics. The results of those physical screens are entered into a program that descibes how your golf swing is affected. Building a workout targeting the weak
link(s) is the next step to strengthen your golf specific movements.
The screening process takes about twenty minutes.
The exercise program can be customized for each individual.
The exercises are simple body motions that stretch and/or strengthen the appropriate area.
This allows the player to make the changes in their golf swing more easily.
