TPS golf training stems from a  strong foundation of world-renown coaches who have dedicated their lives to enriching themselves with proprietary information and world class technology.  Being able to better prepare talented and dedicated junior golfers to the next level is what we do. Our community-based learning environment and thoroughly designed golf curriculum, applied throughout a year long training cycle, derived from proprietary, scientifically proven, and tournament tested training systems, sets us apart from typical golf instruction. Our training system revolves around the belief that we elevate a players game not through changing his or her's natural swing mechanics but through optimizing the athletes natural motion to help the player become the best golf version of themselves.


Engineered for golfers looking to stay sharp and improve their skills during the off-season.  The ‘Developmental’ program is centered around building club head speed and improving ball-striking mechanics without conscious thoughts.  TPS’s proprietary training curriculum allows our players to hit it longer and straighter through biomechanical drills and proper ground force development.The TPS Developmental program is a perfect complement for players that work with a one-on-one swing coach. The “Developmental” program runs from November-March and players will receive 45+ hours of training.


Our most intensive training program, built for junior golfers who aspire to play D1 Golf and professionally. Since 2010, ‘Elite’ has developed 75+ Division 1 Level collegiate golfers. Admission to the ‘Elite’ program is an honor. Things such as class ranking, work ethic, character, GPA, and scholastic achievement are key factors when ‘Elite’ selections are made each year.  ‘Elite’ players will receive 200+ hours of training per year.


Designed for the young golfer on the rise, looking to play college golf.  ‘Pre-Elite’ will raise the intensity and focus level of young golfers by educating them on the basics of ball flight physics allowing our players to train efficiently.  ‘Pre-Elite’ training protocols will eliminate the guess work and opinions that occur in the traditional golf instruction model by identifying the root cause of why a player is not scoring to their potential.  Customized reports can be created to share with a player’s individual swing coach to accelerate the learning process which leads to our players improving at a quicker rate. The “Pre-Elite” program runs from November-May and players will receive 75+ hours of training.  


Reserved for our world-class stable of professional athletes, 'Professional' has recorded countless victories including the PGA Tours Puerto Rico Open, the Moroccan Open, PGA Tour Latin America Puerto Plata DR Open, PGA Tour Latin America Bupa Challenge, and the Illinois Open. In all, 'Professional' has 2 Web.Com Tour members, 5 PGA Tour Latin America members, 2 PGA Tour China Members, and 1 PGA Tour Canada Member.
