The Titleist Performance Institute golf fitness evaluation consists of a series of functional screens designed to evaluate the body’s ability or inability to perform an efficient golf swing.
TPI has evaluated thousands of golfers ranging from the weekend warrior up to the PGA tour to determine the most effective physical screening process. I personally have screened hundreds of golfers ranging from the high school level up to the LPGA.
After evaluating the golfer’s flexibility, strength, balance and biomechanics, a custom golf fitness program is then designed to improve the body’s performance as it relates to the golf swing.
Our complete fitness evaluation consists of a 5 stage screening process which is unique to the industry. We then create a detailed report outlining the results of the client’s physical exam and assigns them a “fitness handicap”. A custom workout program is designed based upon the results of the physical assessment.
The screening is focused on these key movement patterns necessary in an efficient golf swing:
- Posture and pelvic tilting
- Rotational pelvic movement
- Torso rotation
- Ability to perform a deep overhead squat
- Hamstring mobility and hip flexion
- Shoulder mobility
- Lat. mobility
- Internal and external hip rotation
- Trunk rotation
- Gluteal strength
