Golfers who want to improve their game or prevent injury are invited to participate in the Golf Lab, part of NYU Langone’s Sports Performance Center.
The Golf Lab team, which includes physical therapists, occupational therapists, exercise physiologists, and golf professionals, uses the latest scientific research to develop personalized recommendations that improve ball control, performance, and consistency on the course.
We offer group and one-on-one golf evaluations that consist of three stations at which you work with a Golf Lab team member. The evaluations include stability and mobility, video golf swing analysis, and review of golf video.
Stability and Mobility Evaluation
Your Golf Lab experience starts with a series of golf-specific tests and measures. These are designed to identify asymmetries and imbalances that can affect your performance and consistency and increase your risk for injury. We assess your body’s stability and mobility, including at the ankle, hip, pelvis, thoracic spine, and shoulder. We also evaluate how your game has been affected by injuries such as back pain, groin strain, knee pain, rotator cuff tear, and tendinitis.
Video Golf Swing Analysis
Golf Lab specialists use video analysis software to identify movement sequencing and movement patterns that contribute to ball-flight direction, velocity performance, and injury prevention.
Review of Golf Video
Upon completion of the evaluation, we discuss your results and identify your mobility, stability, and swing characteristics. This enables us to provide you with exercises and drills that target your specific areas for improvement.
After your session, you receive a personalized final report that includes the following:
- detailed assessments from all stations
- exercises that improve golf-specific movements
- videos of golf drills you can practice on your own
- online access to your evaluation video
Golf Strength and Conditioning Class
This tailored golf assessment is designed for golfers who want to improve their performance or prevent injury. Golf Lab experts take golfers through a research-based exercise program that targets key muscles and joints proven to improve swing mechanics. This class incorporates mobility, stability, and power exercises so golfers can improve timing, club–head velocity, and force transfer.
