ST. CHARLES PERFORMANCE CENTER
Welcome to our 3rd golf season with the St. Charles Performance Center. Your Performance Center has
provided members of St. Charles the opportunity to improve their games year round with the assistance
of your professionals and with the use of the best technology in the industry.
Our Instruction philosophy is simple. We do not teach methods, we teach individual players. Through
our years of experience and studies with the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI), it has become very clear
in the golf world that there is not a specific "method" that can be applied to each player. We are all
different in how we swing the club. Components of every swing method in golf certainly do have their
applications. Each golfer brings different physical characteristics to the game that form the patterns to
their swing, pitching, and putting. Looking at the players below, there is not one back swing that is the
same, but all strike the ball wonderfully. As professionals, we try to find the most efficient way to
improve on your patterns and ultimately your skills as a golfer. Function comes before form. Most
players are missing one or two simple components in their swing that can be easy to implement and
provide increased efficiency to their ball striking or other areas of their game.
Our education and technology provides us insight to the easiest
path to improvement for you. Our video, BodiTrak pressure
mapping, K-Vest and Foresight launch monitors provide us the
feedback to see clearly which movements need to be addressed
to increase the efficiency of your swing. TPI assessments help
us determine what movements you can and cannot perform
while offering solutions to improve on your limitations.
Through simple drills and exercises, these movement patterns
can be changed with the assistance of your instructor and
some practice time.
Maybe its not a "swing change" that is in order, and is often not
the case. In many scenarios simply having the tools to work on
your rhythm, tempo, balance or tension can prove to make
great strides in your performance. Often we blame mechanics
for a bad shoot, when it can be as easy as putting our attention All play professionally but have different
