The Importance of TPI Assessment
Golf is more physically demanding than most people would believe. One cannot just go in blind and teach himself how to play the sort. Specific care is needed to get the body ready to engage in golfing activity. Swinging a golf club takes a surprisingly large amount of energy.
Performing the wrong golf swing not only hinders your potential as a golfer, but it may also lead to various physical problems. Unfortunately, finding the right swing for you is easier said than done. There is no one perfect swing for everyone. There is virtually an infinite number of swing styles and you need to find one that suits you.
The TPI Assessment Test
The Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) is the global leader when it comes to the study of how the human body functions in relation to the golf swing. The TPI has extensively studied thousands of golfers, from pros to casuals, since its inception in 2003. No other organization even comes close when it comes to the volume and quality of its data. The TPI has proven that the most efficient golf swing can only be achieved by a properly functioning body. The institute has also discovered every facet regarding how physical limitations can negatively affect the quality of a golf swing and how performing a golf swing that is incompatible with your body can lead to injury.
Each individual’s body is unique. Therefore, the most efficient swing differs for each individual. To identify and efficient swing for someone, that individual must first undergo a comprehensive screening process. Swing mechanics, biomechanics, physical fitness, movement quality, current health, and the individual’s history should all be taken into account. And as the master of the Body-Swing Connection, the TPI has developed the TPI assessment test to identify the types of swings that can bring out an individual’s true potential for golf.
