What is David Kuck's background with golf training therapy?

David Kuck, PT, DPT, OCS, CSCS has done extensive training and study of golf swing biomechanics, performance, injury prevention, and fitness. He began his studies in golf while earning his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at SUNY Stony Brook and continued with training and certifications through the Titleist Performance Institute and Back to Golf.

Dave has performed biomechanical golf swing analysis on several of the world’s top players including a U.S. Open Champion. He has traveled to venues including the Accenture Match Play Championship and The Players Championship for consultation and to capture the swings of PGA Tour players in 3d for biomechanical assessment.

 

Who can take part in the programs training?

On Long Island, Dave’s clients include serious amateur golfers of all ages seeking to improve performance. He also teams with some of the top PGA of America instructors in the area including the 2012 Metropolitan Section Teacher of the Year Michael Jacobs and Laurel Links head golf professional Steve Haggerty to put serious players on the path to the golf of their dreams.

What is a Gold Fitness Assesment?

Performed by a TPI Certified Professional, this assessment is used to expose limitations in posture, mobility, stability, balance, strength, power, and motor sequencing that have been shown to correlate to common swing flaws. A golf fitness handicap is assigned and an individualized fitness program is created based on the player’s specific needs. Fitness programs with video can be downloaded to an iPod. When coupled with our 3D biomechanical analysis and instruction from a PGA teaching professional, a program can be developed to optimize performance.

 

What is the 3D Motion Capture and how does it help?

The golf swing is captured utilizing a 12-sensor AMM electromagnetic system, which has been used by READY GOLF PERFORMANCE SYSTEMS on several of today’s top PGA Tour and European Tour players. A TPI Certified Biomechanics Specialist captures the data, which is followed by a full biomechanical analysis and, in conjunction with the fitness assessment and PGA instruction, gives the golfer a complete performance program. Results of the data capture are given to the player and shared with the player’s swing coach.

Access to the K-Vest 3D motion capture and video training system, which provides instant biofeedback while performing fitness activities and swing drills. K-Vest access is available by appointment only.
