Racine Golf Academy
The fundamentals of movement are assessed under the Titliest Performance Institute (TPI) program. Our team of professionals will understand how each individual functions and develop a course to improve and correct faulty function patterns. We will also relate those patterns to not only the game of golf, but other sports and daily activities in order to make an impact on and off the course.
Through the findings of the TPI assessment, the team of professionals will integrate all facets of health, fitness and golf. Our focus is your overall body, which can include relieving pain, improving movement and overall health. We want to create a better you.
Our program is designed specifically to improve your body’s performance by means of understanding its ability to move through the golf swing. The changes that we make through your body’s movement and health can have a powerful effect on your golf game. No matter why you are looking to improve your game, we will help get you there!
Titleist Performance Institute Certified
From amateurs to professionals, the Titleist Performance Institute is the highest standard for getting individuals to maximize their game. Each golfer has his or her own authentic swing, but if the body has functional limitations, that authentic swing becomes broken. By improving or fixing these limitations through health care and fitness, your authentic swing can align and be more consistent. Our team of TPI certified staff will design a comprehensive program that will get your body moving and feeling better. And when you are ready, our golf professionals will refine your swing so you can play your best golf.
About Titleist Performance Institute
Welcome to MyTPI, the largest collection of golf-specific health, fitness and swing advice on the internet. Brought to you by the experts at the Titleist Performance Institute, MyTPI.com delivers cutting edge information from experts on six continents and 58 countries. Every golfer will complete a 16-point movement screen which assess your swing bio-mechanics and movement ability. This information combined with live video footage of your swing will determine the program design which is specific for each athlete. TPI does not believe in one way to swing the club, rather in an infinite number of swing styles but, we do believe there is one efficient way for every player to swing and it is based on what that player can physically do. Once this screen is finished, the results are used to create a unique plan for that golfer. The plan may include fitness training, physical therapy and treatment, coaching of swing mechanics and bio-mechanics, nutrition, mental strategy or all of the above. The most efficient swing is not the same for every golfer, because efficiency is unique to each person’s body. TPI believes golfers will benefit the most from a healthy and efficient body. A golfer will see the greatest improvement by surrounding themselves with a team of experts. Similarly, any professionals in the golf industry will see their clients benefit most by themselves being part of a network or team of professionals.
