Nick is a Titleist Performance Institute Certified coach. TPI is the world's leading educational organisation dedicated to the study of how the human body functions in relation to the golf swing. TPI has studied thousands of golfers ranging from the top professional Tour players to weekend enthusiasts. An incredible amount of data on players of all shapes, sizes, ages and fitness levels has been gathered since it's inception in 2003.
Using this data, TPI discovered how a properly functioning body allows a player to swing a golf club in
the most efficient way possible. Additionally, how physical limitations in a player's body can adversely affect the golf swing and potentially lead to injury.
Once the body functions effectively, this is where the power training can come in. Strength and power tests will be carried out to determine where your start point is and which aspect (strength, power or speed) is required most for you specifically.
