Any exercise program should start with someone who applies objective baseline tests.  This can be as simple as toe-touch, shoulder turn, etc.  Without that baseline testing, how do you know if his/her program is helping you?

Someone with FMS or TPI certification is a good place to start.  Of course not all of them are great but you're increasing your chances that a) the trainer isn't a hack, b) the trainer cares enough to take time off for professional development, and c) the trainer will use some objective criteria to evaluate.  Less chance of wasting your time, money, and effort.

Going to either website will allow you to search for qualified people in your area.

Like any other business, there are great, good, mediocre, and terrible trainers.  Don't forget you're the customer and have a right to interview a few to see who will work well with your needs.

Edit: feel welcome to get back to me about your needs and experiences and I can try to help more - decades of work in the business ought to be put to good use to help you out.

      Welcome to the site. If you had hit that first putt in the video I would have said that you had a chance, however since you missed it I have a hard time giving you the thumbs up..  Check back though when your HC is at a +3 / +4 and another video of you hitting that same putt and I will reconsider! Good Luck!
    • When is driver off the deck a good play?
      By inthehole · Posted
      Well, after reading this thread, I'm going to try it.    Figure my best opportunity would be a nice fluffy lie in the first cut, not off a tight fairway lie ... I like pulling off unusual shots, so why not choke up a little and give it a go ...
    • Reporting scores in abnormal conditions
      By Dave2512 · Posted
      It could affect handicap if it pushes one of your ten best out of the last twenty but only by whatever the difference is in the next lowest score that replaces it. But if your handicap is legitimate that score is probably close as your 11th best. The movement would be minimal.

      Agreed. I searched this way on the old site and it usually worked well. Here, the My Swing thread you want could be many pages down the results.  I suggested an enhancement on the other site features thread to include a link in the profile to their My Swing thread- like the Game Golf link will be there. Definitely useful for me as I enjoy browsing swing threads when I see comments in other areas.
