Why Golf Performance Training?
To help golfers avoid injury while improving their game.
About 24 million Americans play golf, one of the world’s most popular sports. PennWest California’s advanced golf performance training program is designed for golf industry professionals and human movement specialists who want to work with golfers of all ages and abilities.
This 100% online golf training program – a concentration within PennWest California’s M.S. in Exercise Science and Health Promotion – is designed for fitness and golf professionals, athletic trainers, sport performance experts and other human movement specialists.
Students learn key aspects of human movement science as it relates to golf swing mechanics, fitness, and conditioning techniques specific to the game. Program graduates can use their skills to consult, train and create safe, effective strength and conditioning programs for men and women who play golf at the highest level, and to extend playing years for older golfers.
Earn nationally recognized certifications.
