The Titleist Performance Institute or TPI was developed by Dave Phillips and Dr. Greg Rose with the goal of creating the world’s first true golf performance facility that looked at every aspect of a players game, from equipment fitting to biomechanics and the human body. As TPI developed it became evident that the information that was being obtained from working with the game’s best should be passed on through education and the TPI Certified Brand was born, with a goal to educate golf, fitness and medical professionals. Since the start of the education seminars in 2006 there are now over 20,000 TPI certified experts in 62 countries around the world. The TPI certified brand is the largest of its kind in the world and those certified experts have helped the games of hundreds of thousands of recreational golfers.
