Free Professional Golf Swing Evaluation

Golfers can improve their golf swing and get some pointers by consulting with a coach certified by the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI), courtesy of ARC Physical Therapy, at their Westmont location during the month of August.

TPI is the world’s leading educational organization dedicated to the study of how the human body functions in relation to the golf swing. Through years of research, they have discovered how a properly functioning body allows a player to swing a golf club in the most efficient way possible without injury.

ARC Physical Therapy, in Westmont, has two TPI-certified medical professionals to assist players of all skill levels to benefit from a healthy and efficient body. The most efficient swing is not the same for every golfer, because efficiency is unique to every body. To achieve an efficient swing, a golfer first must receive an assessment of movement quality, physical fitness and health history.

Location: 337 Ogden Ave., Westmont. For more information or to set up a screening, call ARC Physical Therapy at 630-323-8646.
