Andrew is a certified Titleist Performance Institute provider who utilizes the TPI movement screen to identify physical limitations which could increase someone’s risk for injury or limit their performance on the golf course. Andrew is an avid golfer, formally coaching a high school golf team, who also has a passion for helping clients return to playing golf following injury.
