|The AWGA Golf Performance Series is a new program being piloted in the fall of 2011. Our goal with the program is to provide, in a group setting, an introduction to various teaching theories and methodologies, enabling you to “try before you buy” in finding teachers and techniques that work for you to improve your golf game.
These sessions will feature the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Assessment for Golfers. This methodology is based on a physical assessment of your mobility, stability, and golf swing. The testing protocol was developed by physical therapists, professional golfers, chiropractors, professional trainers and other medical professionals. The improvement regimen is based on the theory of fitness first.
The program will last three hours, during which participants will get to experience the basics of the assessment process and get immediate verbal feedback on the most significant weaknesses in each area assessed. Those who choose to purchase a more complete report of the assessment done during the session may do so at an additional charge.
Three Level III TPI Certified professionals will present the program:
