Golf Fitness

Kelvin believes in the importance of golf-specific fitness training and incorporates TPI (Titleist Performance Institute) drills and exercises into his teaching program. This helps his students to understand how the human body functions in relation to their golf swings.

Teaching Aids

The world today is driven by technology and the game of golf is no different. Kelvin utilizes numerous technologies to help his students to better understand and learn the game of golf.

  • FlightScope – A launch monitor that utilizes 3D Doppler Radar technology to track ball flight and club motion. Kelvin uses this data to better assess his students’ swings and to help them better visualize the effects of their swings.
  • AimPoint – Reading a golf green is difficult for even seasoned golfers. By utilizing AimPoint’s Green Reading methodology, Kelvin instructs his students how to effectively read a green and improve their putting accuracy.
