Baltusrol Logo

THE PERFORMANCE CENTER AT BALTUSROL
Is a state of the  art learning facility offering unparelled golf performance training and practice facility.
ANGELO SCARPATI, Physical Therapist and Medical Practitioner/Golf Fitness Instructor through the Titleist Performance Institute, shows you how he has guided Golfers in Overcoming Physical Limitations to Play Their Personal Best Golf.
Train like the pros with an in-depth physical screening and analysis of golf specific movement patterns. The staff at the Baltusrol Golf Club Performance Center- trained by Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) creators-- DR. Greg Rose and Dave Philips-- have developed a unique style of golf specific training that combines reactive neuromuscular and motor control training. The golf training blends functional movement, performance and sports skill exercises using various modalities. The one variable often overlooked in the game of golf is the player’s physical ability. All of the tools of the game and swing instruction will not help even the high level player reach optimum golf performance.
The body works in alternating patterns of stability and mobility, with stable joints connected by mobile joints. If this pattern is altered, dysfunction and negative compensation result. Addressing movement patterns will improve performance, reduce faulty swing characteristics and prevent injuries.
The focus at the Baltusrol Golf Club Performance Center is on building the body from the ground, developing a good foundation for balance, strength and power.

Nutrition Corner

Carbohydrate consumption can alter energy dynamics and disease progression in the body.
All carbohydrates we consume are digested into monosaccharides or simple sugars before they’re absorbed by the body, regardless of whether the food source is a simple sugar cube or a high-fibre, low glycemic index bowl of oatmeal. It’s just that the “healthier carbs” are digested and absorbed much slower while the “non-healthy” carbs are digested very quickly.
* A slower carbohydrate breakdown from lower glycemic carbohydrates is better for satiety, blood sugar, and body composition. These carbohydrates are found in vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whole grains.
* Rapid digestion of simpler, higher-glycemic carbohydrates is beneficial during the pre- and post-workout periods.
The average person’s minimum carbohydrate intake should be 130 grams per day, with a majority coming from vegetables and fruits. Higher amounts of carbohydrates are needed with increased muscle mass and increased physical activity levels. However, excessive carbohydrate consumption will be stored for future use (as fat or glycogen).
Consume at least 25 grams of fibre per day from vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts, seeds, and whole grains to ensure optimal health and body composition.
