Updated: May 10

By Dr. Lisa Goodman, DC, CCSP



Dr. Lisa Goodman is chiropractor for the USGA's Performance and Recovery Team, LPGA Amateur member and certified sports chiropractor. The TPI golf biomechanics screen includes a long list of feedback and a post-screen plan including a custom driving range warm-up.


The Body-Swing Connection

TPI (Titleist Performance Institute) determined that physical limitations in a player’s body can adversely affect the golf swing and potentially lead to injury (and unsatisfactory golf shots!). This relationship is what TPI calls The Body-Swing Connection.

 

TPI Mission & Philosophy

TPI believes that golfers should match their swing style to their movement capabilities. The philosophy is simple: There are an infinite number of ways to swing a golf club. However, there is one most-efficient way for each player to swing a club and it is based on what they can physically do.

 

If You Don't Assess, It's Just a Guess!

The TPI movement screen is a simple set of tests to evaluate a player’s physical capabilities. The results of that assessment are used to determine how technical elements of the player’s swing could be related to what their body can or cannot do. 


The Results and Plan

Once this screen is finished, the results are used to create a plan unique for each golfer. The plan may include chiropractic or massage treatment, coaching of swing mechanics and biomechanics, nutrition, mental strategy, home exercises and a custom driving range warm-up routine.
