TOMI Putting Analysis System

One of the most valuable tools in putting instruction is a putting analysis system.  By taking a closer look at the eight different parameters that the TOMI system can measure we can take a closer look at what is really happening in your putting stroke.  Click on the following image to get a better understanding of the information to be gained from this software.

TOMI measures eight parameters:

  1. Alignment at Address
  2. Alignment at Impact
  3. Direction of Path
  4. Overall Tracking on Path
  5. Shaft Angle at Impact
  6. Centeredness of Contact
  7. Speed
  8. Tempo

Golf Specific Fitness Program

This golf specific fitness program is an encompassing program with a flexibility and strength evaluation, prescribed workout programs, and periodic benchmarking evaluations.  Each student will also have access to the Fitness Library on this website that allows you to have a list of stretches and exercises with images and videos to remind you of the technique.  The following areas are the most common issues for golfers:

  • Flexibility training
  • Stability training
  • Overall Strength
  • Endurance Training

After the fitness assessment and a biomechanical analysis of your golf swing through video we can work on a plan to help you eliminate incorrect body movements through your fitness program.  Eliminating incorrect body movement patterns through creating flexibility and strength will allow you to focus on fundamentals of your golf swing.
