Class Name

Is your body holding back its ability to perform at its highest level on the golf course? Would you like to gain 20 yards off the tee? Are you unable to finish your round of golf striking the ball as well as you started? If you answered yes to any of these questions this is the class for you. The 5 week class will include a Titleist Performance Institute full body assessment, an exercise strategy based on those results and drills to increase your club head speed to hit the ball longer.
