TPI ® Golf Training FAQs and Answers
What does it mean for a healthcare professional to be TPI ® Certified?
This means that an individual has successfully completed courses with the world-renowned Titleist Performance Institute ® and uses TPI’s Body-Swing Connection™ program to guide clients in the proper biomechanics of golf movements. We currently have a sports chiropractor, Dr. Ryan Cleous, and an athletic trainer, Jason Hall, that are TPI Certified professionals.
Dr. Ryan Cleous is currently TPI Medical Level 2 Certified which means he has completed the Titleist Performance Institute coursework for practitioners that is designed to give the healthcare provider the information and tools needed to navigate the complex world of golf-specific injuries and golf-specific rehabilitation. By learning to identify and address the underlying cause of pain instead of only treating the symptoms, TPI providers are equipped to not only treat injuries, but reduce the likelihood of recurrence.
Jason Hall is currently TPI Power Level 2 Certified which means his training focuses more on how to maximize distance by optimizing a golfer’s technique, training and equipment. Based on the Titleist Performance Institutes’s decades of experience studying and coaching the biggest hitters in golf, they developed a curriculum that covers the science of power, how to screen an athlete for power potential, training techniques for power and club fitting for power.
According to TPI “The ability to hit the ball far is one of the most potent and coveted competitive advantages in golf. In all of our years working with golfers, we’ve never met one who asked for help hitting it shorter. Whether grooming a golfer for a professional tour or their weekend game, helping them swing faster and hit the ball further is one of the easiest ways to improve their scoring potential. Fortunately, there isn’t a secret to distance, there’s a science to distance.”
We believe that speed is a skill, just like putting or wedge play. By understanding, implementing and practicing key fundamentals, you can help a golfer maximize their distance and enjoyment of the game while establishing yourself as an expert in the field.
Do you replace my golf swing coach?
Improving your biomechanics correlates with improving your swing. However, our TPI experts are not a replacement for a swing coach. Both professionals are evaluating different technical elements of the swing and work together to help the golfer.
Do I have to be a current patient or established patient to see a TPI Performance Institute Certified golf trainer?
No, you do not need to be a patient to be a golf fitness client.
