Effects of a Warm-up on TPI Assessment Performance in Golfers

The main purpose of this study is to compare the effects of a dynamic warm-up on Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) screen performance. The TPI screen is a fitness assessment that is used to identify golfers’ physical limitations that might affect their swing and golf performance. We will also record the TPI screen tests with videos on tablets to re-score at a later date to compare reliability of real-time and video scoring.

You will be asked to come to the Blended Learning Interactive Simulation Suite (BLISS) at the UCF CHPS Innovation Center for one visit. You will complete the TPI screen then rest for 20 minutes and complete questionnaires. You will then perform a brief warm-up and repeat the TPI screen.
