HI all
Last night I started a 6 week TPI programme to work on my flexibility and mobility.
I must say after doing the initial screening and last nights session , im very very impressed by it.
Im just wondering have many others on here done any tpi work and what benefits have they seen??
I got my driver speed done on trackman last week and it was touching on 99mph.
I play off 18 but I strike the ball a lot better then that its my short game that needs attention.
Will i expect to see an increase in clubhead speed and flexibility after the 6 weeks , any feed back would be great
Peace from Ireland

Hey bud its actually a training programme that a lot of the top pros are using such as Charly Hoffman and Justin Thomas

Here is the website

http://www.mytpi.com/

The initital screening checks your whole body and set up and finds where you are weak , then the programme is set up to fix it

I found out im very stiff around my hips and shoulder so will be fun to see what happens

I spent most of this past season trying to get back into form and fix some swing flaws through a few traditional lessons.  I (thought I) understood everything my previous instructor was telling me, but just couldn't get that to translate into my golf swing even after (what I felt was) a diligent practice schedule using the instructors recommendations.  I can't say for sure if that was due to being out of shape or just a disconnect between the way he taught and the way I learned, but I basically ended the year at about the same quality of ball striking (and scores) as the beginning of the year.  I had heard good things about the instructor when I went to him, so I don't think I went to a bad instructor.

We have some golf domes here, so I can still swing the club over the winter.  After the season ended (snow on the ground and all the courses closed), I started working one on one with a TPI certified instructor and so far have made more progress with my ballstriking than I have this entire past summer.  My entire body feels looser and I feel it's easier to move my body parts into different positions I was seeking this past summer.  I think another big aspect is that he explained the golf swing in a different way that made a lot of sense to me and had a ton of light bulbs go on.  I'm not sure if it's because I'm able to better use my body or the way he teaches jives more with the way I learn (very likely both), but the whole TPI concept has been very eye opening to me and plan to continue going forward -- especially since I want to be in better shape anyways (so why not cater my fitness to golf?).

I also started, just a week ago.  The stretches are great, and the online videos clear.   They have a tremendous amount of information on their website, but it takes an assessment and plan to make it all useful.

Hey mate

Great to hear your working on your game and I hope it all goes well for you

I hope to go from 18 to around 10 before the year is out , I just need to tighten up on my short game and I think the TPI training will be of great help to my body and mobility
