Titleist Performance Institute Case Study: Golfer with Previously Broken Jaw

It is critical to obtain a complete injury history when dealing with a new athlete. By "complete" I mean birth through present day. Conditions during child development can affect the way the body subsequently learns movement.

Below I describe a brief case study in training a golfer whose movement limitations all share a common thread to an old high school injury.

An Afternoon on the Practice Tee at the Accenture Match Play

I had the opportunity to attend the Monday practice round at the Accenture Match Play Championship in Marana, Arizona (just outside Tucson).   Always a great learning experience to not only watch the best in the world honing their craft, but also to watch their interaction with their support staff of coaches, trainers, caddies, and equipment reps.  Here are a few videos from Monday afternoon on the practice tee.  Good to see lots of TPI representation both among players and support staff.
