It’s difficult to hit a target from far away, which is why holes-in-one are rare and the Goodyear blimp has never been shot successfully with an arrow. Drive hard with a vengeance, thanks to today’s Groupon: for $99, you get an Eagle golf-fitness-assessment package at CoreGolf in Coeur d’Alene (a $250 value). The package includes the following:
- A biomechanical fitness evaluation
- A K-Vest TPI 3D swing efficiency assessment
- A personalized web-accessible workout program<p>
CoreGolf’s TPI –certified fitness and medical professional Tyler J. Blackwelder, who has advised more than 20 PGA Teaching professionals, primes players of all experience levels for lower scores on the green during golf-fitness assessments. The 60-minute Eagle package commences with a biomechanical evaluation, filming patrons as their bodies flow through more than 35 TPI tests that mimic game movements, including follow-throughs and triumphant fist pumps. Clients then slip into a K-Vest TPI 3D—a wireless vest that gauges swing efficiency with 3-D measurements and video technology.
As clubs swoop through practiced arcs, the K-Vest charts posture, power, and overall performance on its kinematic sequencing graphs before giving torsos a congratulatory squeeze on their best stroke. CoreGolf staff can then survey the entire assessment’s findings to craft a web-based exercise program that covers 18 workouts. The personalized routines target each participant’s strengths and weaknesses, striving to boost accuracy, range, and ball-steering telekinesis.
