The Golf Performance Center’s 5 Elements -
5 Elements of Success

We do not believe there is one perfect swing, but that each individual has his or her unique swing based on how he or she moves.


Our 5 Elements of Success evaluation process, founded by our belief that ‘Function Dictates Form’, engages each individual and prescribes an optimum plan for improvement in order to boost performance.
