TPI EXPLAINED

 

Within our TPI program we try to develop the junior athlete and junior golfer hand-in-hand, hence golf and fitness classes. Experts agree that a child who develops as an athlete will develop their golf skills at a faster rate and peak at a higher level of expertise. The TPI program is broken into different age and ability levels. Hat colors delineating the junior’s golf skills and bracelet colors delineating their athletic skills. Once the junior obtains blue hat level age does not matter, until then the classes are broken into age and ability levels.

  • Red hats/bacelet & Red hat/bracelet with white stripe - Beginner levels
  • White hats/bracelet & White hat/bracelet with blue stripe - Novice levels
  • Blue hats/bracelet & Blue hat/bracelet with green stripe - Intermediate levels
  • Green hats/bracelet & Green hat/bracelet with black stripe - Advanced levels
  • Black hat/bracelet & Black hat/bracelet with silver stripe - Tour levels

"I have been coming to Neil for golf instruction for almost six years. Through hard work on both our parts, I have become a player who both understands my swing and can repeat it under pressure in a tournament. He provides me with a fun and informative learning environment," Dylan Ford, 16, Homewood High School golfer.
