Golf Instruction for the 21st Century
Traditionally, golf instruction has relied on received wisdom, folk psychology, trial and error, ball flight, and qualitative analysis for diagnosing swing errors. Even with 2D video, golf instructors do not have access to real time quantitative data that could indicate the subtle but important nuances of timing, energy flow, and joint rotation in a golfer’s motion.
Until now, the problem with learning to play golf, apart from its inherent difficulty, is that training methods have not kept pace with equipment advances. It is a somewhat troubling fact that the average handicap of most amateur golfers has not gone down. Even with the advances in driver technology, distances off the tee have not appreciably increased over the last twenty years. This situation has not been so much the fault of the golfer as much as it has been our inability to diagnose a player’s weak link.
Now, with the accuracy of 3D sensor technology and 3D motion analysis, Performance Spine and Sports Medicine can pinpoint what is holding back your golf game.
Today, we also must think of playing golf in terms of multiple performance factors e.g., balance, posture, strength, flexibility, coordination, stability, mobility, properly fit equipment, playing the game, on-course strategy, full swing, short game, mental approach, injury prevention, and rehabilitation.
The staff at Performance Spine and Sports Medicine is certified by the Titleist Performance Institute which means we can perform a 12- 14 test golf fitness evaluations that can help out with your swing faults. Call us today to schedule an appointment!
