Daniel Radcliffe - PGA Professional | TPI & Bioswing Dynamics Certified
As well as being a PGA Professional, over the years Daniel has expanded his skillset by becoming a Fitness Level 2 TPI Instructor (Titleist Performance Institute), attaining the Level 2 degree in TrackMan, certified in BioSwing Dynamics and a Level 3 Personal Trainer.
“HOW TO CRACK THE CODE – FINDING YOUR SWING DNA”
Inspired by TPI and BioSwing Dynamics; Daniel has designed a program to help golfers of all abilities assess their golfing body and to help the student understand how much their swing is influenced by their physical make-up.
“Efficiency beats style – It’s nice having a swing that looks technically sound, but if you don’t have a consistent ball flight…..what is the point?”
The Golfer’s Physical Screen (Head to Toe Screen) (60 Minutes) – £50
Daniel’s “Head to toe” screen involves 21 tests which look at fundamental movements of your muscles and joints. Once the screen is completed Daniel will talk you through the results, discuss what swing characteristics can be expected, what areas of the body are responsible and what can be developed to improve performance.
The Body and Swing Analysis (3 hours) – £135
You first complete the “Head to Toe” screen; next Daniel will conduct a swing, ball flight and equipment evaluation. This will involve video analysis of the swing, the TrackMan launch monitor capturing ball flight and swing data, plus an assessment of the length and lie of your clubs.
“Don’t guess….get measured”
