The Titleist Performance Institute has spent the last 20 years studying the
world’s greatest players analysing how their body movements can directly
affect the golf swing.
Have you ever wondered how someone such as Bryson DeChambeau won the U.S. Open with his
unconventional golf swing? Or have you ever been amazed how players such as Jim Furyk or Matt Wolff have had successful careers with such unorthodox golf
The answers lie in how they generate speed and transfer this speed into their
golf swing. The amazing thing is that all great ball strikers have the same
kinematic sequence, which is the ability to generate speed and transfer energy efficiently through their bodies. If you where to compare Tiger Woods’ kinematic sequence to
Jim Furyk’s there would be very little difference. Even though their golf swings don't look anything alike at all.
TPI’s Philosophy of the golf swing -
“We don’t believe there is one way to swing a club; we believe there are an
infinite number of ways to swing a club. But we do believe that there
is one efficient way for all golfers to swing a club and it is based on what
they can physically do.”
We are aware that swing faults can be directly related to the physical
limitations of a person which can include a lack of flexibility, reduced mobility,
poor range of body motions, stability issues, and poor strength and conditioning
levels. All of these result in the inability to sequence the movements of the
golf swing in the correct order causing a lack of power and accuracy.
We use the Titleist Performance Institute for golf specific health and fitness
information. Through years of meticulous research and testing carried out on the
world’s top golfers, TPI has pinpointed the physical limitations that result in
specific swing flaws. Following the TPI guidelines we can carry out a physical
screening of a golfer, identify their physical issues, and recommend TPI
certified exercises to resolve the problem.
TPI plays a vital role in team and individual player programs throughout the
season. Michael and his team are qualified TPI fitness instructors allowing them
to coach and guide clients through the use of TPI, while also helping them set
up their own online ‘MyTPI’ accounts. This offers them exhaustive information on
golf specific exercises, workouts, and programs relating to their individual
