The golf clinic focuses on the physical aspects of golf performance. Our specialist team of physiotherapists utilise industry leading assessment strategies such as the TPI physical screen, to assess the player’s physical readiness to perform the golf swing with optimal efficiency. The TPI philosophy does not believe in there being only one way to swing a club, but that there is always a most efficient way for every golfer to swing based on what the player can physically do. Furthermore, this TPI screening strategy has been trusted by 25 of the top 30 players in the official world golf rankings in professional golf today.
