The One Day Workshop
Will cover the essential physical profile assessments that enable every coach to improve a player’s performance and enhance his or her coaching skills. Frequently Coaching sessions are dominated by the player’s inability to perform a movement or maintain a consistent delivery of the body or club. Understanding if the presented problem is technical or physiological is vital to design a programme that will prove to be effective. There are essential profiles that all coaches should appreciate and understand in order to diagnose issues presented by the player, these issues are fundamental to performance.
The assessment profiles cover:
- 1. Posture and postural retention,
Essential for effective set up posture and alignment.
- 2. Rotation, control of the body during weight transfer.
Physiological conditions that limit or hinder weight transfer and movement in the backswing and downswing.
- 3. Stability,
Understanding issues that affect physiological muscle stability.
At this Seminar PGA Coaches will learn the assessments and prescriptive programme to identify and correct these issues, issues that occur in a high number of players. Coaches will learn basic physiological principals, delivered in an easy to learn format, The coach will understand how in just a few minutes the assessment will indicate the nature of the problem faced, and then the coach can advise as to the relevant conditioning required to address the issues. Finally, for those players undertaking physical conditioning programmes the coach will be educated to advise players on the suitability of programmes they are undertaking to address their personal technical problems.
The course content is divided into:
- 1. Understanding the physiological principals behind the body and golf technique, taking the knowledge of the technical aspects and relating them to good bio mechanics and physiology.
- 2. Understanding the effects on performance of poor or incorrect physiological issues
- 3. Understanding the required elements to correct these issues.
The easy to understand physiological information is presented in a way that all golf coaches can adapt to their technical knowledge, The presentation will include information and visuals of the assessment and programmes being completed by tour professionals and amateurs alike. A practical Seminar that will encourage audience participation, both individually and in group sessions. A manual of information will be provided for all attendees to re enforce the knowledge gained after the seminar.
Key Learning Outcomes
Following the seminar the golf professional will have gained knowledge in basic principles of physiology, muscles activity, body alignment, control of centre of gravity and principals of movement. The coach will understand the skills necessary to make the identification and adapt coaching sessions to accommodate the issues.
