ST. CHARLES PERFORMANCE CENTER
Welcome to our 3rd winter of 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, TrackMan and Foresight launch monitor
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 All play professionally but have different
our attention towards sequence and timing. Our professionals back swing positions.
explore those ideas with you and can help you create the tools
Function comes before form
to find your best swing on the course.
When visiting one of our professionals, they will provide an initial assessment and discuss with you
the history of your game and what your goals are. We will develop a plan specific to you. We will
guide you on how to practice through the off season and how to best utilize your performance center.
Golf is a challenging game that requires practice to see improvements. Our professionals will be with
you every step of the way to make sure your time is maximized and your game improves.

PROFESSIONAL CUSTOM CLUB FITTING
The St. Charles Performance Center is your home for year
round club fitting. This facility enhances the member
experience while providing a comfortable environment for our
members while using the best technology in the industry. The
Performance Center is an excellent compliment to what is the
most comprehensive fitting program in the province.
Fitting golf equipment is an important process for all golfers. Properly fitted clubs
enhance your performance while playing a significant role in the development of
your swing. Using improperly fitted golf equipment can lead to a swing of
compensations by being forced to accommodate golf clubs that are too long or
short, too heavy or have improper shaft characteristics. Fitting and golf instruction
work together as one and knowledge of both is required for a proper fit. Our fitting
process and tools provide us the ability to find the best clubs for your game, without
bias to a particular brand. Our experience as instructors allows us to fit equipment
that increases performance and encourages the proper development of your swing.
We are fortunate to be the regional fitting center for Titleist, while additionally
being the primary fitters in Winnipeg for Ping, TaylorMade, Callaway and Mizuno.
This provides us considerably more options in shafts and heads than other club
fitters, making our program the most comprehensive fitting program of any club on
the prairies. We can fit your entire bag, from driver to wedges.
Putter fitting is as important as fitting the other 13 clubs in your
bag, and we do that also! St. Charles is one of three EDEL putter
fitters in Canada. The EDEL system uses various putter styles
and offset types to find the putter that you align best. We
measure loft, head weight, shaft flex and counterbalancing to
optimize speed control. Optimizing aim and speed will result in
more putts dropping in the hole. When you buy a putter off the
rack, there is no telling if you align it correctly or if the weight
is best for your speed control.
