Physical Screening

We have a very specific philosophy that we use to describe the human body.  It is very simple and involves the interplay between Mobility and Stability. Because of this philosophy, we incorporate movement screens to help evaluate each player. Let's go over a little of the background about movement screening as well as mobility and stability, and then will discuss our philosophy.

Fundamental movement screens help identify faulty stability patterns and altered mobility better than isolated musculoskeletal exams. For example, take the following test results:

  • Tight hip flexors
  • Weak glutes

These results are very common, and one could assume that the primary problem here is the tight hip flexors. But most of these people will show a very different result on a functional movement screen. In other words, because the hip flexor is tight, when the player is asked to perform a movement involving hip extension, the glute will show weakness since the over-active hip flexor will actively shut down the glute and recruit synergistic muscles instead. Therefore, the glute must be retrained to engage as well.

Video Analysis

This consists of taking two videos of your golf swing. The first one is from a face-on view. The second is from behind the ball. 

The purpose of the video analysis is to look for swing faults. 

Swing faults are characteristics in a golf swing that could be hindering performance (power/accuracy), or they are injury producing mechanics. 

Power Testing
  • The power test we use is part of the curriculum in TPI's advanced Power and Fitness seminars.  Power testing allows you to see where your power numbers stack up against other golfers your age around the world.
  • A good takeaway from the data is to understand how much horsepower your body is capable of relative to others your age playing golf. This will give you context as to how fast might be realistic to expect yourself to swing at our current age and even into your 70s.
  • It might be an eye-opener that you are really far behind the average golfer your age, or that you are the cream of the crop when it comes to your age group.
  • Either way, it is a nice benchmark and a good way to know objectively where you stand

3D Motion Capture
  • Using data collected from 3D motion analysis systems (K-Vest), we can look at how golfers generate speed and transfer the speed or energy throughout their bodies.
  • We have found the most efficient sequence of how they get this speed to the club head. We call this the “Kinematic Sequence”.
  • The amazing thing is that all great ball strikers have a remarkably similar kinematic sequence of generating speed and transferring speed throughout their bodies.
  • That means if you compare Ernie Els’ kinematic sequence to Jim Furyk’s kinematic sequence, it’s hard to show a difference.
