Why TPI? Develop an amazing athlete...
Then develop the child into an amazing golfer.
History & research shows many Tour Professionals on the PGA and LPGA Tours were great athletes before becoming great golfers.
But do not twist this message. This doesn’t mean that all great athletes will become great golfers.
Example: Michael Jordan, possibly the best basketball player ever, might not make it through Q-School.
Former 16-year Major League Baseball Pitcher, Rich Rhoden, dominated the Celebrity Players Tour. Then Rhoden took his game to the Champions Tour and barely made a cut.
It takes 10 years or 10,000 hours of deliberate practice to master something and become an expert.
Golf is a bit different.
Golf is a 20-year sport. Most "experts"-players who have won on the PGA Tour - took almost 21 years from the time they started training to win their first PGA Tour event.
Tiger Woods beat the curve. Still, it took him more than 17 years!
Former tennis great Boris Becker told Golf Digest Magazine: "Not all golfers are athletes, but there are a lot more today than there used to be. It's why Tiger is so much better than everyone: He's the best athlete."
The Junior AcademyONE program wants to create the best athletes possible. And a chance to be the best golfer possible.
