Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) & K-Vest
TPI believes that the most efficient swing is not the same for every golfer, because efficiency is unique to their body. To achieve an efficient swing, a golfer must first be screened. This screen involves an assessment of swing mechanics and biomechanics, physical fitness, movement quality, current health and a client history.
Once this screen is finished, the results are used to create a plan unique for that golfer. The plan may include fitness training, physical therapy and treatment, coaching of swing mechanics and biomechanics, nutrition, mental strategy or all of the above. A golfer will see the greatest improvement by surrounding themselves with a team of experts. Similarly, any professional in the golf industry will see their clients benefit most by themselves being part of a network or team of professionals.
Focuses on teaching the skills required to run a junior golf program for ages 17 and under. The program is based on TPI’s Long Term Athletic Development (LTAD) Program and gives the tools necessary to run and operate a successful junior gold program.
The first track focuses on the LTAD basics, growth velocity, Active Start (ages 0-5), Fundamental Phase (ages 5-8), and Learn to Play Phase (ages 9-12), windows of opportunities, coaching themes, conditioning themes, the Wave training circuit, the SMASH Zone training circuit, and now to get kids on the fold course at an early age.
The second track focuses on the pubertal growth spurt, the Learning to Compete Phase (ages 12-15), the Train to Compete Phase (ages 15-17), High School golf, the Wave training circuit, Golf 4 Life Program and the Elite Development Program.
The Golf Mechanics track focuses on all aspects of swing analysis, swing mechanics, ball flights, launch monitors, advanced 3D biomechanics, vision and the visual system. The track includes both full swing and short game.
The first part of the track focuses on the full swing including identifying and manipulating the ball flight. The use of launch monitors and video swing analysis are covered in great detail as is the use of 3D motion capture to identify how to change a players movements to be more efficient.
The Power Coach track focuses on a single skill – how to hit the ball farther. All aspects of power development including equipment modifications, swing tips, swing characteristics common in long hitters and physical training techniques are covered in great detail.
The first track focuses on power development which includes speed development windows, power sources in the golf swing, power testing, strength testing and physical training techniques designed to help hit the ball as far as possible.
The K-Vest certification course focuses on analyzing the kinematic sequence which is the body’s ability to create speed and power by transferring rotational velocity from segment to segment in the golf swing. The segments that K-Vest measure are: pelvis, upper body and shaft in bend, side bend and rotation. These velocities and measurements clearly define each person’s power signature in their golf swing.
Biofeedback and drills can be created with different tolerances to help speed up the learning curve and to create a powerful, efficient golf swing by eliminating all of the guess work.
US Kids Golf Certified Coaches are recognized as leading experts in teaching and coaching junior golfers under the age of 12. They use a game-based learning system to ensure that the junior golfers are improving, but most importantly having fun. The coaches also use their knowledge in junior golf club-fitting, utilizing the game-based curriculum and offering and offering playing opportunities to junior golfers on golf courses that are scaled to the proper yardage to ensure that they are enjoying the game.
