Introduction to TPI’s Power Coaching Class
By looking at the stats of some of the best players in the world, learn why power matters and why the game is demanding more distance everyday.
The Science of Power
Dr. Rose will discuss the evidence-based factors that help develop power. These factors include the science of motor unit recruitment, muscle fiber types, the potentiation effect and the physics of projectiles.
In addition to the evidence-based concepts that develop power, learn clinically based evidence and observations that have helped some of the longest hitters in the world. Students will learn The Big Break Theory, Overspeed Training, Overload Training, The Rules of 4 and Muscular Loading principles.
Students will learn the four main power sources used to generate power in the golf swing: Vertical Thrust, Rotary Power, Chop Power and Wrist Release Power. Then incorporate all four of these sources into TPI’s 4X4 Power Matrix, a simple system to help design effective power development training programs
Power Swing Techniques
5-time World Long Drive Champion Jason Zuback and Dr. Greg Rose will teach you swing modifications that can be used to generate more clubhead speed. These lower body modifications followed by upper body modifications will challenge your beliefs about how to hit the ball farther.
Screening for Power
As with each TPI Certification course, if you don’t assess it’s just a guess. This statement is especially true when it comes to power generation. Learn the TPI power screen, the first step in determining potential physical limitations with you or your client.

PGA of Canada professional Liam Mucklow will discuss how the body generates power from the ground up. Liam will show you how to identify problems in the kinetic chain and how to address these issues with simple coordination drills.
Club Fitting for Power
Learn the latest findings in club fitting considerations for increasing swing speed. Liam discusses the interpretation of launch monitor data and long distance club fitting topics including: loft, shaft length, shaft weight, shaft flex and grip.
