Improve Your Golf Game With A T.P.I. Review — Dave’s Diary

You love golf but let’s agree on one thing. You’ll never be Tiger Woods–on or off the links, right?  But that doesn’t mean you can’t improve your game–your GOLF game, right? Whether you’re a handicap golfer or a duffer, there’s always room to improve your game.  Just ask Joel Buffum from Memorial Sports Medicine Advantage.  Joel has been certified by the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) to help you determine how best to improve your game and avoid injury.

The TPI is the world’s leading research organization dedicated to the study of how the human body affects the golf swing – and how physical limitations in a person’s body can adversely impact a golf swing and potentially lead to injury. The program has shown how professionals and amateurs alike can get more powerful, more accurate and stronger, while reducing injuries and fatigue.

Need a little more proof?  Seven of the past eight Masters champions have worked with a TPI professional.

You are unique–in a good way! That means there’s no one, most-efficient way to swing a golf club. It’s entirely dependent on the limitations of the body for each individual. But if you can take steps to reduce these limitations, you can improve your power, improve efficiency and reduce injury, improving your golf game overall.

A screening session starts with a series of questions to better assess your skills and history with the game:

  • How long have you been playing?
  • What injuries – golf related and otherwise – have you suffered?
  • What most concerns you about your game?

Maybe you want to get more power behind your drives – an indication that your backswing isn’t reaching its full potential and you need to strengthen specific muscles and improve your flexibility. Perhaps it’s an accuracy issue – a high stroke count could mean you’re struggling with wrist control and you need to strengthen muscles that will allow you to better control your shots.

The screening then includes a series of physical tests to assess the fitness, flexibility and overall function of your body, such as hip range and overall range of motion.

All screening sessions finish with a face-on and down-line evaluation of your swing.  For more information, visit yakimamemorial.org or call Joel at 941-5746.
