Why every golfer should get a TPI Screen

More golfers, both professional and amateur, are turning to specific golf fitness programs to help give added strength, greater mobility, and overall improvement in their physical and athletic abilities with regard to their swing.

Most golfers want to improve their swing consistency and shave some strokes off their scores. Fortunately, there is an entire training movement that is redefining performance training for the sport of golf.

One system, the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) screen, is quickly becoming an invaluable tool in assessing the overall condition of a player by examining how their body moves and how their movement can correlate to possible swing faults.

What Is a Performance Screen?

The TPI Screen examines the human movement and how your movement restrictions are affecting your golf swing. It focuses on the movement, strength, and flexibility of the human body in relation to striking a golf ball. This is critical, as a golf swing is a dynamic and engaging movement, stability, and body posture in motion which doesn’t always come naturally to human beings. 

The golf swing, according to some experts is “the pinnacle of human movement”. Some may disagree, but few can say that swinging a club for the first time was an easy endeavor. 

By focusing on the mechanics of a proper golf swing and how an individual’s current movement patterns impact their swing, specific areas of improvement can be targeted to make the most impact for each individual player. 

Then, by consulting a certified TPI specialist, you can create a program to affect the greatest change with targeted, specific exercises. Because the TPI screen thoroughly examines so many aspects of human movement and how it relates to the golf swing, there may be problem areas identified which were not even considered beforehand.

Titleist Performance Institute

Titleist Performance Institute, or TPI, is the world’s leading educational organization dedicated to the study of how the human body functions in relation to the golf swing. The screen can identify restrictions in the way your body moves within your swing so that we can accurately prescribe/develop a program to improve body mechanics and decrease the risk of injuries associated with your golf game. Whether you are a scratch golfer or a beginner you will greatly benefit from this process which includes:

  • A 16-point physical screen, which is a comprehensive assessment of strength, mobility, and functional movement patterns specific to the golf swing
  • A video analysis that correlates your screen results, and how these findings affect your swing
  • A home exercise program to address any physical limitations identified
  • An initial training session with one of our performance coaches to incorporate these findings into your goals
