Titleist Performance Institute Long Term Athletic Development

Brandon Wessel’s passion for teaching juniors is a very large part of his life’s work.  His enthusiasm for Junior Golf Instruction and Physical Development is contagious.  He brings a high level of intensity and knowledge to every class.

Bob Dickman has been coaching top performing golfers since the mid 80”s. His students have won over 45 tournaments on tour and played college golf at many major colleges.

This program is designed to instruct juniors to become both sound athletes and skilled golfers.  The training philosophy operates on the hat system principle similar to the belt system in Karate. Juniors work on various hat levels within the program from beginner to high school golfer.  This gives a junior athlete and parents clear understanding of each child’s individual strengths and weaknesses.  Any quality junior athletic program needs to place the emphasis on junior development with the goal of physical literacy by the developmental age of 12.  This is the backbone of the TPI Junior Program and the NSEGPA  junior program. Each week builds on the successes of the previous week in motor learning and golf fundamentals.  This very successful TPI-NSEGPA program deviates from traditional methods of teaching golf to youngsters, in which children spend hours at the driving range. Instead, this program is based on the principles of long-term athlete development – rooted in understanding how the body interacts with the brain at different stages of life. It is the very program responsible for training many of the top golf professionals and Olympians today!

Working with some of the most experienced golf performance professionals in the state, children learn how to blend time proven development techniques with golf fundamentals. All three venues include up to 12 stations in a FUNdamental Cyclone Zone or a S.M.A.S.H. Zone. The FUNdamental Cyclone focuses on the body’s fundamental movement skills while S.M.A.S.H. – Stability, Mobility, ABCs (Agility, Balance, Coordination and Speed), Sports Skills and Honing Golf Skills – is rigorously designed for youngsters in fifth through ninth grades.

The FUNdamental and S.M.A.S.H. Zones are the program’s core; each has kicking, hitting, throwing, putting, forearm release, chipping and catching stations. In addition, there is a strength-building station and an area where children will begin to learn golf fundamentals in a way their brain and body responds to. While kicking, hitting and throwing provide a seemingly unorthodox approach to golf instruction, all help encourage rotational velocity, which is critical when learning the mechanics of golf. We are teaching the youngsters to become extremely talented athletes in an arena that makes this hour their favorite activity of the week.

In order to highlight the program we will offer a Free Power Point Presentation – Parents: How to Support Junior Athletes.   This informative presentation will highlight the concepts of the best junior performance programs in the world and explain how it has been instrumental in developing some of the finest athletes around the world.
