With still a month left in the Whistler golf season, those looking to elevate their game still have time to take part in the Titleist Performance Institute’s Perfect Swing program.
A certified golf fitness professional, Mark Coates brings the comprehensive and cutting edge training approach to Whistler, offering golfers of all ability levels the opportunity to improve their game.
The Perfect Swing program includes a personal webpage, detailed analysis and comparison to the pros, online golf fitness programming customized to address physical limitations of each golfer and coaching support needed to utilize the tools to improve your game.
The primary goal of the screening is to identify physical limitations that negatively affect golf swing. The findings are then correlated with the biomechanics of the individual’s golf swing in order to develop corrective exercises that help improve the individual’s game. Coates, a Titleist Performance Institute Certified Golf Fitness Professional, is the only trainer in Whistler offering the Perfect Swing Program. Coates reminds golfers that the off season is a perfect time to get screened and get working in the gym to improve their game for next season.
For those who simply want to maximize their time on the courses, late summer and early fall provides plenty of opportunities — with all four of Whistler’s signature courses offering great value for an unbeatable experience.
