GOLFERS – TPI SCREENING
Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) is the world’s leading educational organisation studying of how the human body functions with the golf swing.
Since its inception in 2003, TPI has studied thousands of golfers, from the top professional Tour players to weekend enthusiasts. During this time, an incredible amount of data on players of all shapes, sizes, ages, and fitness levels has been obtained. Using this data, TPI discovered how a properly functioning body allows a player to swing a golf club most efficiently. Additionally, TPI has analysed how physical limitations in a player’s body can adversely affect the golf swing and potentially lead to injury.
If a golfer is limited by what their body can do, they have two options:
1) Adopt a swing that works around their limitations; OR
2) Work with a fitness or medical professional to improve their physical limitations.
TPI’s mission is to educate golfers and industry professionals on the Body-Swing Connection™ through its one-of-a-kind ‘TPI Certified’ educational program. This program was developed by founders Dr. Greg Rose and Dave Phillips, along with a 52-member advisory staff of industry-leading experts. There are now thousands of TPI Certified professionals in 63 countries assisting players of all skill levels and we have one here at Lincolnshire Physiotherapy and Sports Injuries Clinics.
TPI principles assess whether your posture, stability, balance and body swing connection affect your on-course golf performance. You will then be given a tailored, bespoke treatment/exercise plan to reduce your functional restrictions.
Our TPI-qualified therapis performs TPI assessments. The TPI Screen is a head-to-toe, 16 point assessment process, to establish physical limitations which may impact on a person’s golf swing. These limitations may have implications for golf performance and injury risk. Following the 16-point screening, identified limitations can then be further assessed, and a bespoke exercise programme will be implemented to improve these limitations.
