Functional Golf Specialist
Jim is providing Kendall Academy of Golf with a new category, functional golf specialist. Jim is a product of the world-renowned Gray Institute®, under the direction of Dr. Gary Gray. The Gray Institute® formerly partnered with Nike Golf to provide golfers with NG360, which certified golf teachers and coaches with leading edge understanding of golf movement science. Jim is a NG 360 certified coach.
Jim has also become certified by Dr. David Tiberio, Dean of The Gray Institute®, and Jonathan Moore, Director of Golf for the Gray Institute®. As a functional golf specialist, Jim is currently working to complete the Gray Institute® Gift Fellowship Program, the equivalent of a graduate degree in applied functional science and chain reaction.
If a golfer wants to increase their strength, flexibility, endurance, and/or be better able to perform the movements suggested by their swing coach, Jim is well equipped to be a valuable resource. He is very personable and will be very committed to enhancing your golf experience.
Private Coaching or Assessment: 50-minutes
Group Sessions will also be offered.
In the short term, for best results, we recommend that Jim would assess you, design a program for you, and follow up to see to it that you are able to do the movements properly. Over the longer term, as your strength, flexibility, and endurance improve, your exercises should be reassessed and updated to match your own capability.
