Last week myself and Oli successfully took a two-day training course with the world renowned TPI organisation, which promises to change the way we teach forever! Our new TPI certification will allow us to offer a 16 stage screening (taking only 10 mins) to better understand our pupils physical limitations. To celebrate we're offering FREE SCREENING for the whole of June and July.

This has been exciting year already for the THSG investing in the 3D Kvest coaching and now this. We strive for continuous improvement not just in our pupils but in ourselves too.

So what is TPI?

TPI actually stands for Titleist Performance Institute. It is the world's leading educational organisation dedicated to the study of how the human body functions in relation to the golf swing. When a pupil comes for a lesson at the THSG, we see many reasons why the swing is at fault, for me the two main reasons come from the following:

  • Poor understanding of the correct movements
  • Strength, flexibility and mobility issues

Our new TPI certification will now allow us to take our pupils through a 16 stage screening (taking only 10 mins) to help us understand better what physical limitations that pupil have. If we can gain a better understanding of what they are, then we can work more efficiently on other areas. We will also be able to give exercises to improve strength, flexibility and mobility around key joints and muscles that are most used in golf.

Since 2003, TPI has studied thousands of golfers ranging from the top professional tour players to weekend enthusiasts. An incredible amount of data on players of all shapes, sizes, ages, and fitness levels has been gathered during this time. Using this data, TPI discovered how a properly functioning body allows a player to swing a golf club in the most efficient way possible.

Additionally, TPI has analysed how physical limitations in a player’s body can adversely affect the golf swing and potentially lead to injury. Five unique fields of study are offered for TPI Certification: Golf, Medical, Fitness, Power and Junior Development. The THSG plan to explore the junior and golf pathway, comprising each of 3 levels.

Some Interesting Facts About TPI Experts:

  • 12 of the last 16 Major championships were won by players advised by a TPI certified expert.
  • 22 of the top 35 players in the world are advised by a TPI certified expert.

The 16 stage screening takes around 10minutes and involves the pupil being taken through some light exercises that can be carried out in golf clothes. To celebrate myself and Oli’s new certification we are offering FREE SCREENING for the whole of June and July.
