How to Optimize your Body for Golf with Performance Golf

What do you do when you want to find out what’s limiting your highest potential in golf?
How do you improve your posture, pain, endurance and distance during your game?
Are you looking for new ways to improve your performance?

If any of these questions resonate, let us introduce you to our TPI Certified Golf Fitness Instructor, Dr. Mark McCoy, PT, DPT. As a TPI Certified Golf Fitness Instructor, Mark has studied the Body-Swing Connection™ and is able to determine your ability to generate and transfer speed and determine the most efficient energy transfer throughout your body.

What is Golf Fitness?

Golf fitness is about being fit to play the game at an individual’s highest level and doing so without causing injury. To do so, one must understand, understand the body’s limitations through testing as well as understanding the latest technology and how it can be implemented to increase strength and performance.

What’s the Difference between TPI Certification and a Golf Instructor?

Golf instructors are very important when it comes to the technique of your golf swing. TPI Certified Golf Fitness instructors are able to clinically identify weaknesses throughout your body, and give you the proper tools to improve your overall fitness. For example, an instructor may be unable to identify limited mobility in your hips and ankles, causing you to lose power in your swing and placing undue pressure on your knees and lower back. This could lead to a gradual loss of power and eventually lead to an injury.

Our Performance Golf Program Overview

Step One – Biomechanical Evaluation

TPI Certified Golf Fitness Instructor, Dr. Mark McCoy, PT, DPT will put you through a series of tests for balance, strength, stability, and flexibility. Medical history, golf goals and shot tendencies are also discussed in this initial evaluation.

Step Two – Custom Exercise Prescription

After your evaluation, a custom exercise program will be developed for you that will focus on strengthening your weaknesses and correcting your imbalances as it pertains to your swing. Your customized program will include exercise handouts with written and visual instruction that you can perform at home. Mark will guide you through each exercise and fully explain the benefits of each movement.

Step Three – Your Follow-up Sessions

Each player will receive 2 sessions to establish the exercise prescription and to assure exercises are being done properly. The program will be progressed to meet the needs of each client. Players have the option to continue with additional sessions as long as needed to achieve the outcome they want.

Our Goal
