TPI Golf Level 2

Designed for serious golf instructors who desire to be at the forefront of how golf is taught at the highest levels.
Learn insights into what the best golfers in the world do and how it can help you become a better golf coach.

TPI Golf Fitness Level 2

Golf fitness, what is it? Golf fitness isn’t about looking like a bodybuilder or the best player on Tour. It’s about being fit to play the game at an individual’s highest level and doing so without causing injury. It’s about understanding how a body’s limitations can influence the golf swing and how to address those limitations through the proper channels; whether it’s through swing instruction, physical rehabilitation or strength and conditioning exercise. It’s about understanding the latest technology and how that technology can be implemented to increase performance.

Junior Level 2

Learn the skills needed to design, build and operate a great junior golf program. This class focuses on the development of young golfers; learn how to easily screen and assess kids at each age and use that information to implement the appropriate training protocols.

Trackman longgame (masterclass with Phil Allen, Paul Goodfellow and Timothy Beumer)

Get insight into what exactly happens with the golf ball after your swing. Respectively, all factors influencing your ball flight are obvious and easy to monitor with Trackman; a great tool for up-to-date golfers.

Trackman shortgame (masterclass with Phil Allen (coach Joost Luiten) and Timothy Beumer from Trackman Europe)

How to optimise your swing repertoire and impact? How do you control distance, spin and trajectory of the golf ball during short distances to the flag? Get control regarding your trajectory and spin during short and mid distances. Train club head speed, spin and landing angle of your short game.

3D motion analysis

The golf swing with a K-vest shows exactly how the different body parts move in relations to its other and how to correct this in order to get a better swing. The ideal sequence of movements makes the swing more efficient, more powerful and easier to repeat.

Tour Tempo

Now a days, the rhythm of your swing is easier to train. The timing of your golf swing is with aids such as downloadable apps good to monitor. Tour Tempo exercises aim to strive for a repeatable golf swing and a steady rhythm. It is important not to have technical thoughts and to focus on a repeatable stroke.

VISION 54 coach

The physical skills you will improve are Balans, Tempo and Tension (unwanted muscle tension). You will learn at which tempo/muscle tension levels you can optimize your swing and how to stay balanced for more efficient golf. Mental training is a big part of this exercise and you will learn to prepare a better focus, swing preparation and how to deal with the changing golf emotions on the golf course. These exercises are fun to do and not complicated.

Bioswing Dynamics level 1 + level 2

A revolution way to see what type of golfer you are and how through simple screening you can use the optimal power sources for your own physical possibilities of your swing. (Everybody has got 3 potential power sources in golf). Most (even tour!) players, do not use their potential power in the swing or try to use the wrong forces, which demands a lot of extra training and can cause injuries. The screening is simple and does not demand a lot of time. The adjustments we need to do are done in the stance at the beginning and can be applied instantly.

Certified PGA short game coach

Masterclass with ex-tour player Inder van der Weerelt and material masterclass in relation to wedges with Paul Goodfellow from Titleist. All possible lies and stance of the short game, wedge fitting, differences in loft, sharing knowledge regarding bounce and several short game training methods.

HeartMath for golf

HeartMath is a kind of emotion management that helps you control your emotions during golf. By paying close attention to your posture and breathing you can get a healthy, coherent pulse that will reduce stress during your game. This will result in reduced muscle tension, more focus and responsiveness. Exercises in relation to HearthMath influence the parasympathetic part of the central nervous system. This stimulates being relaxed, a lower pulse, deep breaths and better blood circulation. It will lead to a quick recovery in preparation for a new swing.

Clubfitting

I have 4 years of experience as a professional club fitter on demo days for the brands Titleist and Taylor made. The education I did regarding these topics were completed in England at the European Titleist fitting and performance centre, and in Germany at the Taylor made fitting centre.
