“Attitude Builds Confidence and Better Scores!”
by Pat Fitzsimons – PGA Professional
An often heard sentiment surrounding golf is “Why can’t I take it from the range to the course?”. I hope to offer some insight into this situation.
You sometimes find yourself having a wonderful session on the driving range, hitting shots with solid contact and pleasing flight. You dream of splicing them into the round you are about to play. Seems you can’t miss. No matter what club you bring out, the ball goes where you want it to, and the excitement and expectation for a good day on the course is growing. You head to the putting green and roll a few into the hole from five feet and lag some long ones close. All bases covered! Let’s see now….what is my best score ever?
Today is the day.
The Titleist Performance Institute is the the world’s leading educational organization dedicated to the study of how the human body functions in relation to the golf swing. Since its inception in 2003, TPI has studied thousands of golfers ranging from the top professional tour players to weekend enthusiasts. An incredible amount of data on players of all shapes, sizes, ages, and fitness levels has been gathered during this time.
Using this data, TPI discovered how a properly functioning body allows a player to swing a golf club in the most efficient way possible. Additionally, TPI has analyzed how physical limitations in a player’s body can adversely affect the golf swing and potentially lead to injury.
We at Shadow Hills are lucky to have our own TPI Certified Trainer in Nick Mainenti. During a recent “Introduction to TPI” seminar, Nick outlined the advantages of the TPI system for swing evaluation, strength and conditioning. And now, Nick is offering a special TPI training package for Shadow Hills Country Club members.
