TPI screenings test two main components in the body:
1. Mobility (range of motion + flexibility)
2. Stability (balance + strength + muscular endurance)
Failed screen results likely indicate the true “root cause” to common swing deficiencies such as swaying, sliding, coming “over the top”, scooping, etc. The TPI screen also identify areas in the body susceptible to injury due to the one sided demands of the sport.
The following are some of the main areas tested during the initial screening:
Most clients want to hit the ball farther but simply don’t have the physical ability to create a full shoulder or hip turn. As a result they can’t create the proper swing sequence or enough rotation speed to really hit the ball a long way. Tour pros don’t have this problem, but most amateurs do.
Example, if a golfer has an incomplete shoulder turn, it’s likely there is a physical limitation in the lat muscle, shoulder area or thoracic spine. Trying to get a client to “turn more” when they are physically unable to is illogical. A TPI screening would verify this restriction and either a modification can be made to the instruction or an exercise program can be started to address the limitation. A golfer can ONLY do what they are physically capable of doing…nothing more.
