A TPI golf screen is a physical assessment of 13 movement patterns that are important to the golf swing.
The physical screen assesses how well your body can move and support itself during the golf swing. The premise is that lack of mobility & stability in your joints doesn’t allow your body to reach the proper swing positions. The inability to get into these positions will cause you to have one or more of the 12 most common swing faults.
The best way to improve your game, prevent injury (lower back pain is the #1 complaint in golf), and continue to enjoy golf for many years, is to take a scientific approach to preparing your body for the physical requirements of the game.
The physical limitations cause movement inefficiencies that lead to a loss of power, swing speed, and inconsistent ball striking. Elimination of these physical limitations will improve your golf game. The limitations need to be identified by evaluating your movement patterns.
The evaluation involves an assessment of swing mechanics, biomechanics, physical fitness, movement quality, and a review of previous injuries.
Using the physical assessment, a personal fitness program can be designed to correct imbalances that will eventually improve your:
There are other added benefits to the fitness program; your improved physical fitness levels will:
- increase endurance
- increase injury prevention
- prevent/reduce or eliminate back pain
- improve functional fitness (everyday activities).
