The golf swing does not care how big your biceps or pecs are. The golf swing is a very 
asymmetrical, un-natural, highly intensified movement for your body. For PGA tour
 players and amateurs alike, fitness and wellness programs should be administered with 
injury prevention and longevity of the game in mind. Once fundamental movements
 are learned and corrective exercises are implemented, then advanced golf specific
 movements can be introduced.

The Cold Rubber Band

Think of putting a rubber band in the freezer for a couple of hours, now put each end on
 your thumbs like you are going to fire it; pull it back and what happens… snaps. This 
is very similar to golfers trying to swing a golf club without properly warming up; cold
 muscles do not fire very well and as a result injury can occur.

The Titleist Performance Institute Approach

The Screening Tests developed by the Titleist Performance Institute were developed from some of the most respected Sports Medicine Doctors in the nation. These tests will identify physical limitations that are occurring in your golf swing.  They show you how your body relates to your golf swing.

Pinnacle Health & Wellness’s Dr Tyler Hamel is a Chiropractor and Certified Level 3 Medical Titleist Fitness Professional. Upon completion of your testing, Pinnacle Health and Wellness can produce a plan of therapy, stretching, exercise and nutrition designed to improve your golf fitness and performance.

Numerous PGA and LPGA winners use the Titleist Performance Institute methodology to improve their games.  You can lower your scores, feel better and enjoy golf more.  Get started by calling Pinnacle Health & Wellness today at 281-360-8387 and schedule your Titleist Performance testing.
