All my thoughts have turned to green. Golf-green, that is. Golf season in Montana is here! To set the stage, I jumped in with both feet last week and golfed the South 18 at Torrey Pines in Oceanside, California. I say “jumped in,” and I mean it literally.
Not only was the rough rough, it was rough and growing. In fact, they were watering the rough. Slice one into that stuff, and you’ll have to jump in. And then you’ll reach deeper and deeper into your bag for yet another ball.
Nevertheless, the scenery was beauiful and the weather was warm.The next day, I attended Titleist’s Level 2 certification for medical professionals. As with most everything Titleist touches, the seminar was gold, pure gold.
Taught by acclaimed physical therapists Gray Cook and Mike Voight, our world of golf fintess instruction was immediately taken to an entirely new level.
Here’s the gist of what made the course pure gold. We learned and were grilled for two days in a new approach to sports performance, one that focuses less on pain and more on assessing movement. Not that we ignore pain, but corrective movement often cures pain with the added benefit of maximized performance.
With these new assessment tools, the Titleist approach will have all your buddies in Missoula envious of your improved accuracy, power, and distance. You see, the movement assessment fleshes out limitations in your body, limitations that impact your swing, your body, and your potential for injuries as a golfer.
These new assessment tools go hand in hand with the 2D video analysis that all our golfers undergo. While the approach establishes whether your body can handle your swing style, it also uncovers weak links in your body. By speedily correcting the weak links with specific movement retraining, you’ll quickly take your game to a new level.
If you have pain or if you’re simply not crackin’ the whip with your long shots, you’ll make quick strides by having an accurate assessment and appropriate strategies for eliminating pain and improving performance.
