The Functional Golf System (FGS) has been created to empower movement professionals to assess and train golfers.

Prepare the Body to Make the Swing
The objective of the FGS is to prepare the body to make the swing by providing the physical resources required. The Assessment and Training movements replicate the three-dimensional biomechanics of the golf swing. This movement authenticity is immediately recognized subjectively by the golfer, and proprioceptively by the body, thereby creating client engagement, adherence, and rapid improvement.

Over 13 hours of online instructional content. Over 250 individual golf-specific movements organized into 6 training Paths. Each Path is organized into sequenced phases. Each of the movement videos can be delivered to your golfing client.

The Gray Institute Functional Golf System is designed to leverage your ability to appreciate movement, build on your existing skill sets, and make you the most important resource for their enjoyment of golf.

FGS is a system that is authentic to the movement of the game.

All Modules and exams (70% pass rate) are required.
