Since the late 1990s, the game of golf has seen a seismic shift in how players at the highest level prepare and maintain their bodies for competition. Players are more powerful, more athletic and better equipped at an earlier age to perform at the highest levels while older players are extending their careers at incredibly high performance levels.
The game has reached a point where its participants do not need convincing that better fitness, biomechanics and health will improve their chances of playing their best. Today’s golfers need to be convinced that their instructors are up to date with the latest information on the sport.
Golfers want to trust their coach, instructor or practitioner. TPI Certification gives golfers that trust!
GOLF FITNESS – WHAT IS IT?
Golf fitness isn’t about looking like a bodybuilder or the best player on Tour. It’s about being fit to play the game at an individual’s highest level and doing so without causing injury. It’s about understanding how a body’s limitations can influence the golf swing and how to address those limitations through the proper channels; whether it’s through swing instruction, physical rehabilitation or strength and conditioning exercise. It’s about understanding the latest technology and how that technology can be implemented to increase performance.
How do you get this knowledge to help players get fit to play their best golf? Through TPI Certification.
