Titleist Performance Institute, Certified Golf Fitness Instructor Level 3



Titleist Performance Institute (TPI)

At TPI, players are put through a complete array of tests, in order to assess the "total picture" of the body, swing and equipment. Located in Oceanside, CA, certified personal trainers, physical therapists, chiropractors, doctors and golf pros learn to use physical screening tools to measure the ability of the golfer to generate and transfer speed. For more information please go to www.mytpi.com.

Certified Golf Fitness Instructors (CGFI)

Upon completion of this strenuous program, personal trainers use those screening tools to determine the golfer's physical ability and/or limitations. TPI testing involves a series of 12-20 physical tests that help determine a golfer's balance, stability, mobility, strength and power. If, at any time, the athlete feels pain (due to prior physical issues) during testing, the test will stop. He or She will be referred to the appropriate medical professional for evaluation and treatment. Once medical clearance has been obtained, the athlete is free to resume the TPI testing.

Upon completion of the testing, the results are sent to MyTPI.com for evaluation and immediate diagnosis. Once the diagnosis is received, the Certified Golf Fitness Instructor and the athlete discuss the results and necessary course of correction. After this has been discussed, the CGFI will tailor a program for the golfer to follow for the next 4-12 weeks. It is highly recommended to spend at least 1-3 hours a week working with the CGFI. After a pre-determined amount of time, the athlete is reassessed to gauge their progress in the program.

Why are TPI tests so important?

Many hours are spent on the driving range trying to improve your golf skills. Golfers invest a small fortune in new equipment, golf lessons, and accessories, yet never seem to decrease their handicap. Why aren't they seeing improvement and what can be done about it? There are four main requirements a golfer needs to improve to become a consistently better player. These are balance, flexibility, strength and endurance.

Balance -

Golfers of all levels often overlook this area. Balance plays an important role in stabilizing the core musculature as well as adding an element of control through muscular coordination. Balance plays a pivotal role in your ability to execute weight transfer and hip rotation without jeopardizing a stable address position. Those golfers with exceptional balance will have more efficient reaction times and therefore movement speed.

Flexibility -

Allowing your muscles to extend through their full range of motion is widely considered one of the most important aspects of a successful golf swing. Muscles, which are inflexible, can have a significant impact on all aspects of your game. The same is true of muscle imbalances. Solid warm-ups are very important for golfers to prevent injury and optimize performance.

Strength -

When muscle force or strength is applied to the ball, power is created and distance is increased. Strength in key muscle groups will also help prevent injury. Strong lower back and core muscles will support your position at address. Strength in your midsection (abs, obliques, glutes) will provide you with the stability needed to make the most effective separation of the hips and the shoulders in producing the power every golfer is after.

Endurance -

Although cardiovascular requirements for golf are not huge, they are critical in maintaining adequate levels of energy and maximal levels of concentration. Without good cardio, physical fatigue can easily lead to mental fatigue. Once this occurs, most golfers experience skill deterioration.
