Golf Performance Evaluation
Most golfers are continually striving to improve their game. From changes in equipment to adjustments in the swing or short game minor adjustments often go a long way. The Performance One team understands the most important piece of equipment in your golf game…your body.
Often times our clients have been experiencing frustrations with the lack of improvement in their game despite continual lessons and investments. The golf performance evaluation utilizes research based movement assessments to break the golfer’s body down in to areas of mobility and stability impairments. These impairments are the limiting factor in the athlete’s ability to improve performance. By identifying and correcting these impairments and restoring proper movement patterns the athlete is able to swing efficiently and effectively while reducing injury risk and improving the longevity of their golf game.
What does it include?
Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Golf Fitness Screening
The TPI screen allows us to identify specific movements related to the golf swing that a player is unable to perform. This information often correlates to swing faults such as swaying, early extension, coming “over the top”, etc.
When physical restrictions in mobility and stability are driving forces in a swing deficiency it cannot be corrected with basic coaching as the physical impairment will not go away without specific intervention.
Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA)
The SFMA is what helps make the Performance One team unique. TPI Certified Medical Professionals with over 50 years of combined experience in athletic performance will conduct your performance evaluation. Combining your player and/or medical history and the TPI screen with the SFMA allows us to identify very specific body impairments from mobility restrictions to motor control dysfunctions limiting your game.
Our team will provide you with a computerized report detailing your golf fitness handicap, as well as a TPI workout and detailed explanation of the body swing connection as it relates specifically to your game.
3D Swing Analysis
Utilizing 3D AMM and/or KVest technology, Performance One will breakdown your individual kinematic sequence-the specific order in which you activate muscles in the golf swing. It is well known in the world of golf that there are many different swing styles that exist, however when looking at the kinematic sequence, there is only one most effective and efficient way to swing a club. By combining the 3D findings with the above TPI screenings, Performance One will be able to identify specific physical impairments that are affecting the kinematic sequence and develop a plan to address these impairments while also working with your golf professional to maximize improvements in your game.
Putting is an art and accounts for over 40% of the club golfer’s strokes, however until now most players analyze their putting and make decisions on technique and club selection by simple observation. Utilizing Quintic Ball Roll Software, Performance One is able to provide you with:
• Impact Club Speed
• Shaft Angle
• Attack Angle
• Face Angle & Face Rotation (including the amount of Face deflection as a result of impact!)
• Dynamic Lie (change from Address position)
• Impact Ratio
• Impact Ball Speed & Ball Speed during the first 16 inches of the putt
• Launch Angle & Vertical Bounce
• Skid, Backspin & Roll (Angular rotation & revolutions per minute)
• Hook or Slice Side Spin
• The point of Zero Skid / Time to Zero Skid
• Push & Pull
• The average of up to 21 putts including the range & standard deviation, for easy comparison of putters and putting technique.
Quintic Ball Roll software shows exactly what effect the putter and technique is having on the ball by measuring the club and ball’s performance. Having this detailed information allows the player and/or the golf professional to tailor practice and coaching of putting more specifically.
