Golf fitness is a combination of strength, mobility, and stability training geared towards improving the body’s ability to move to create an efficient, powerful, and safe swing. At Curran PT golf fitness training begins with the Titleist Performance Institute screen which is a musculoskeletal assessment developed to evaluate a golfer’s mobility and stability through dynamic and golf-related motions. The TPI screen can pinpoint a golfer’s limitations that are causing specific swing flaws and can help identify injury-causing movements in the swing. Video swing analysis is used to highlight specific mechanical swing flaws so golfers can begin to see and better understand how to improve their swing. But most importantly Curran Physical Therapy uses the state-of-the-art Foresights QC Quad launch monitor and simulator that incorporates the best technology and software available to help golfers improve their game. The Foresights GC Quad uses a combination of infrared object tracking and high-speed, high-resolution camera-based technology to precisely measure every aspect of clubhead and ball launch performance.
By improving the ability to move, increasing strength, improving stability, and maximizing rotational power golfers can:
- Improve clubhead/swing speed (1 mph = 2.5 yds of distance)
- Improve accuracy
- Lower scores
- Prevent injury
