TPG Junior DevelopmentTotal Performance Golf Junior Development
In 2010 we launched The Total Performance Golf Junior Program and is a program that is not just golf focused but also focuses on the athletic development of a child. Junior golf programs need to be built around a child’s learning ability. There are too many junior golf schools that are developed with an adult mindset. Teaching children and teaching adults are two different approaches. Junior programs need to focus on developing a child’s athletic ability along with golf specific skills.
The activities we will use share the same athletic movements as with golf. For instance, a baseball swing and a tennis forehand both require a weight shift, trunk rotation, wrist hinge and a strike. All of those fundamentals are also found in the golf swing. Cross training allows us to teach the basic movement of golf in a more effective and entertaining manner.
Our long term athletic development program will be a nine month program that mirrors the school year. The junior golfer will be matched up with other juniors of the same skill level. The lesson plans are all tailored to the each specific skill group. It is a system in which the junior player will progress through various golf and athletic skill levels. Once a level has been completed they will move onto the next level. Each level will build upon the skills of the previous level.
Our philosophy is that junior golf programs need to develop fundamental movement skills, establish functional movement patterns, develop sports specific skills, teach golf-specific skills and most importantly, let the kids have fun.
