Junior Golf Development

Junior Golf Development Video will be ready soon!

Philosophy

Our philosophy is simple: Turn a child into an amazing athlete. Then turn the child into an amazing golfer. 

 

That philosophy drives the activities at the Junior Performance Center. But it extends farther than the notion of a philosophy. There exists a lot of anecdotal evidence supporting the philosophy.

Many of the professionals on the PGA and LPGA Tours were good and great athletes before becoming great golfers. But do not twist this message. This doesn’t mean that all great athletes will become great golfers. That is far from the truth. Michael Jordan, possibly the best basketball player ever, might not make it through Q-School. Former 16-year Major League Baseball Pitcher, Rich Rhoden, dominated the Celebrity Players Tour. Then Rhoden took his game to the Champions Tour and had a few Top 10 finishes, competing with former PGA pros. But Rhoden has neither been as dominating as he was against other non-golf athletes on the Celebrity Players Tour nor as good as he was while playing in the big leagues.

For most sports and for most things in life, it takes 10 years or 10,000 hours of deliberate practice to master something and become an expert.

Golf is a bit different, and Edmund delivers the best junior golf lessons Singapore to help train, and prepare young ones to become experts in the field.

Tiger Woods beat the curve. Still, it took him more than 17 years!

In 2007, former tennis great Boris Becker told Golf Digest Magazine: “Not all golfers are athletes, but there are a lot more today than there used to be. It’s why Tiger is so much better than everyone: He’s the best athlete.”

That is what we are working on at the Junior Performance Center. We want to create the best athletes possible. We know that will give them a chance to be the best golfers possible.

 

Our Long-Term Athletic Development model systematically takes each child through each level of development. Those levels are all based on biological age, not chronological age. We do not make children do what their bodies are not ready to do. Children need to know they are progressing. We can tell them until we’re purple in the face that they are doing great. But that does little compared to the children actually seeing and feeling that they are progressing.

Our athletes constantly see progress, and we are loving that as much as them!

The Program

The TPI Junior Performance Center is an innovative approach toward golf improvement. Based on the principles of Long-Term Athletic Development (LTAD), the TPI JPC uses physical and mental activities that are appropriate to a child's biological age.  

 

These activities are challenging but rewarding. Young athletes will gain strength, quickness, speed, agility, balance and confidence. Most importantly, they will have a great time doing all of it!  

 

The "FUNdamental Cyclone" and the "S.M.A.S.H Zone" are the program's core. Athletes will kick, hit, throw, putt, catch and chip. There are wrist release stations, strength building stations and stations where children will begin developing explosiveness. Built into each station are exercises and movements that enable athletes to learn the fundamentals of athleticism and golf. Instructors at the JPC teach young minds and young bodies how to be the best they can be, and we do it in an incredibly fun and engaging atmosphere.

 

Children participate in a 90-minute session each week. The 90 minutes include a warm-up and cool down, team-building activities and up to 12 stations in the The "FUNdamental Cyclone" or the "S.M.A.S.H Zone."

 

Each week’s 90-minute session takes the athletes through exercises and activities that develop and nurture their fundamental movement skills as well as their fundamental sports skills. And during each cycle, the athletes learn and eventually master a different theme, including - grip, alignment, posture and weight shift.

 

The "FUNdamental Cyclone" is set up for the less experienced children. It focuses on the body's fundamental movement skills. The S.M.A.S.H Zone - which stands for Stability, Mobility, ABCs (Agility, Balance, Coordination and Speed), Sports skills and Honing golf skills, is set up for the more experience children. The S.M.A.S.H's focus is developing sports skills, specifically golf skills.
