Hi, I’m Chris and I’m a golf-obsessed member of the MyGolfSpy team. As the Director of Business Development, I generally work as a conduit between our staff and other golf companies. I also spend a fair bit of time in my hot tub collecting thoughts into ramblings on equipment or other golf topics.
The TPI program was created by founders Dr. Greg Rose and Dave Phillips in 2003. Today, the concept of golf fitness is mainstream. In 2003, it was an island. In the middle of the Pacific. With very few, if any, other islands in sight. In 2003, you probably had a Palm Pilot and hit up the local Sam Goody to snag the new 50 Cent album.
STEP No. 1: ASSESSMENT
After a brief discussion with Phillips about TPI, he put me through a series of 16 tasks to better understand my physical competence. Each exercise was assessed and labeled as either red (fail), green (pass) or yellow (partial pass). Based on this, the My TPI app generates a Golf Fitness Handicap.
Results and Trends
As golfers, we tend to be more comfortable overestimating how far we hit the ball while forgetting how often we three-putt. But this is the type of test where you can’t cheat or massage the results. Both Tony Covey, our esteemed Ball Lab expert and equipment editor, and I went through this process.
Based on my physical screening, Phillips had a firm grasp of the basic limitations of my swing. Basically, I get into a relatively playable position at the top of my back swing. At that point, my upper body takes over. My transition starts with my hands and I rely too much on my arms and upper body to (try and) square the clubface at impact.
PLAN OF ACTION
Improvement is a process. And it isn’t linear. And sometimes it’s slow as well. I knew all of that going in but I figured that I couldn’t get any less flexible so what the hell.
