Certified by the Titleist Performance Institute in the diagnosis and treatment of golf-related injuries. Since the late 1990s, the game of golf has seen a seismic shift in how the player’s 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!
