Titleist Performance Institute Screens & Corrective Care
TPI is the world's leading educational organization dedicated to the study of how the human body functions in relation to the golf swing.
TPI believes golfers will benefit the most from a healthy and efficient body.
TPI does not believe in one way to swing a club, rather in an infinite number of swing styles. But, we do believe there is one efficient way for every player to swing and it is based on what the player can physically do.
The most efficient swing is not the same for every golfer, because efficiency is unique to their body. To achieve an efficient swing, a golfer must first be screened. This screen involves an assessment of swing mechanics and biomechanics, physical fitness, movement quality, current health and a client history.
Once this screen is finished, the results are used to create a plan unique for that golfer. The plan may include fitness training, physical therapy and treatment, coaching of swing mechanics and biomechanics, nutrition, mental strategy or all of the above.
A golfer will see the greatest improvement by surrounding themselves with a team of experts. Similarly, any professional in the golf industry will see their clients benefit most by themselves being part of a network or team of professionals.
Learn about the most common swing characteristics that can lead to mechanical inefficiencies in your golf swing, and put you at greater risk for injury.
