Titleist Performance Institute Certified Fitness Professional
At TPI, the philosophy of the golf swing is “There is no one way to swing a golf club. There are an infinite number of ways to swing a golf club. However, there is only one way to efficiently swing a golf club, and it’s based on what you can physically do.”
As TPI Certified fitness professionals, we’re in the business of working with your golf pro to develop the physical ability to get into the positions you need to make the swing you’d like to make, effortlessly and consistently without pain.
By screening you for the physical indicators of developing any of the big 12 swing characteristics (often termed swing faults), it is possible to pinpoint and intervene with potential physical causes of sway, early extension, early release of the club, reverse spine angle or any of the other commonly experienced characteristics of a swing that can affect both performance and longevity on the golf course.
THE 2 goals WE always have in mind:
My goal is to help you create the physical changes in your body you’re looking for to supplement the work you’re putting in on the range; in helping you play as hard and for as long as you choose to.
ELDOA FOR GOLF
ELDOA is a form of exercise focused on maintain space and health in your joints.
With a separate exercise for each joint in your spine, your ribcage, hips and pelvis; it is the go-to tool for golfers, both on Tour and amateur to help with post-round soreness, and to improve performance.
Clients have found ELDOA to help with back, neck, shoulder and hip pain caused by their golf swings, and are able to use the exercises on their own at home to relieve this.
We offer ELDOA generally as live group classes either in-person or online every week, or if you’re interested in something more tailored; we implement ELDOA into our bespoke corrective and performance programmes for everyone who comes in for a TPI body-swing connection screen.

Let me answer your questions!
Opposite are a list of frequently asked questions about my golf fitness programmes – hopefully this information provides some of the answers you’re looking for. If not, send me a message and I’d be happy to answer!
Why would I benefit from your help instead of my golf pro?
You won’t. Lowering your scores is not my job, and any trainer claiming to help you do so has either never played golf or will say anything to get their hands on your pocketbook. My job is to work with your pro, in figuring out what you can physically do to swing the club well and without pain. While golf is played by individuals, it is won by a team.
I'm not a competitive golfer, wouldn't this kind of training be too much for me?
The brilliant thing about this wonderful game of ours is that you really can play with anyone, at any age. In order to make this possible; it’s my job to make golf fitness as much about longevity as it is about performance. A tailored golf-fitness programme, therefore, is as beneficial for preventing everyday aches & pains as it is for improving your physical attributes.
I don't have access / I don't want to subscribe to a gym to workout. Is there anything I can do at home that will help?
YES. In fact, much of what I teach clients can be done at home, with no equipment and can create a benefit with as little as 5 minutes of your time each day. When you know exactly what to work on, you get to replace the guessing with things that truly make a difference.
I'm A GOLF Pro, and have students who may benefit from a physical evaluation or programme. What's the process for this?
Excellent! I’d love to pick up the phone or meet you in person. I believe that being able to speak the same language when it comes to what a student is currently up to, and what they need to do is critical to success when using the team approach to a golfer. Let’s have a chat and discuss the best route forward. Please fill out the consultation form or get in touch through the contact details provided. I look forward to hearing from you!
