Philosophy

 

Quintin’s philosophy is looking at the needs of each individual player from a swing perspective and where they reside on the overall swing spectrum. Some players need improved geometry and reduced degrees of freedom, others need improved biomechanical function for improved dynamics and speed production, some need both! Improving overall performance can be accomplished through refinement of skillsets, and adjusting strategic outlooks. Utilizing technology to measure and determine where on the spectrum the current player resides and where they need to make refinements in order to facilitate the largest improvements in score. There is no one method or swing style for all golfers. Rather, the instructor must develop an efficient and repeatable motion based on the student’s functional movement. Utilizing their physiology, a student will then learn the necessary stability, mobility, and power sources unique to their stroke pattern whether putting, pitching or driving the ball. Data collection is imperative with strokes gained/lost to determine the best course of action.
