GOLF 2 CERTIFICATION
As a TPI Certified Level 1 golf instructor, you know how to physically screen a player to establish the Body-Swing Connection - a fundamental component of being a great instructor. Identifying any underlying causes of dysfunction or inefficiency is a prerequisite for effective coaching, but addressing them is what sets an elite golf instructor apart.
An elite golf coach must think like a detective, sifting through a sea of data to find the root cause of why a player performs the way they do, and then develop a plan for them to incrementally improve. Being able to do this systematically is what the best coaches in the world do, and is why TPI developed Golf 2.
TPI’s Golf 2 online course Certification provides the tools and guidance needed to navigate the complex world of golf instruction so that you can dramatically improve your player’s performance in the quickest, most efficient way possible.

When coaching a player, where do you begin?
Expert coaches need a complete understanding of every aspect of the game to know with certainty, why a golfer performs the way they do.
Ball Flight Principles:
Do you have complete mastery of why the ball flies the way it does? Do you understand how launch monitor data is generated and what it REALLY means?
How to Manipulate Ball Flight:
Learn how attack angle, club path and face angle changes with different swing setups and how each combination can yield different ball flight patterns.
Teaching Around Physical Limitations:
You’ve identified a physical issue with the TPI Level 1 screen. Do you improve the physical issue or do you teach around the limitation?
Big 12 Swing Characteristic Drills:
Your player shows one or more Big 12 characteristics. Should you try and eliminate it and if so, what are the best drills for doing so?
The Wedge Game:
Do you have a proven system to teach the wedge game across every possible shot a player may encounter?
Putting technique is critical, but do you have a method for determining why your player is falling short? Is it technique? Speed control? Green reading? Eyesight? How do you test for these?
The Science of Practice:
Do you know if your practice programs are designed in a way to maximize improvement? Is your lesson management right for each player and in each situation?
Is your player’s vision impacting their performance? Do you know how to test for limitations and if found, how to correct them?
GOLF 2 COURSE OVERVIEW
The Science of Ball-Flight
Learn how to use the latest technology to help your students hit the ball further and straighter than ever before. Dave Phillips and Dr. Greg Rose discuss the mechanics of ball-flight, clearly define the 13 potential ball flights and use advanced visual graphics to explain what makes the golf ball move in various directions. Learn how to control and manipulate ball-flight with a deeper understanding of ball-flight mechanics.
Teaching Around Physical Limitations
Learn how to teach around the limitations found in the TPI Level 1 assessment screen in order to give your students immediate improvement right on the lesson tee.
Taught by short-game guru James Sieckmann, James describes why the wedge swing is completely different from the full swing and how to teach wedge mechanics to golfers at any skill level. James covers 3D biomechanics of the short-game, chipping, pitching, distance wedges and a variety of specialty shots around the green.
Dave Phillips takes students through the art and science of putting. Learn how to evaluate a player’s putting skills, green reading, starting the ball on line, speed control, practice programs and equipment.
Dr. Rose discusses the role of vision and how the eyes can influence the game. He shows how characteristics like eye dominance or depth perception can dramatically alter putting and full swing mechanics.
Dr. Rose with the help of Dr. Tim Lee, share practical strategies proven to accelerate a student’s learning and enhance the transfer of skills to the golf course. Understanding the science of motor learning and how to apply these skills to lesson programs is one of the most important factors in creating a successful teaching plan.
