ABOUT GOLF 3
Coaching a player in today’s ever-changing world of technology advancements and performance protocols can be daunting. There are so many tools of the trade available to golf instructors that simply knowing how to use the latest and greatest tool is not enough. What separates elite instructors is their ability to know what tools to use, when to use them and how to effectively communicate to their players in order to see immediate and long-term results.
TPI’s Golf 3 Certification seminar puts you in the same room with some of the game’s top instructors to see how they instruct the best players in the world and how their approach can be used with players of any ability. Over the course of three days at TPI headquarters, you will be immersed into the world of modern, elite-level coaching principles and see firsthand how TPI’s philosophy of the Body-Swing Connection is the connective tissue that anchors all of it together.
Classroom size is limited to allow for ample time to ask questions and participate one-on-one with instructors. By the end of the three days, you will have an in-depth understanding of how you can apply the principles taught at TPI into your own teaching practice and how you can grow and expand your own professional career.
There is simply no other class available that gives the teaching professional an opportunity to learn how some of the best coaches in the industry work with their players in a practical, hands-on experience at one of the best facilities in the world.- Claude Harmon III, Golf Digest Top 50 Instructor, Golf Magazine Top 100
