AMPD to open training site at Troon North


Scottsdale, Ariz. (December 5, 2018)AMPD Golf Performance will open a performance studio at Troon North Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz. on Monday, December 10th. Chelsea Burney, a Golf Performance Specialist and former college golfer, will lead the training at AMPD’s new Troon North location.

"We are excited to add the AMPD platform to our already successful coaching programs at Troon North,” said Troon North’s Director of Instruction Doug Hammer, PGA. “Being able to address the physical needs of our students will only add to our success in helping players reach their golf goals. Golfers can now address all aspects of game improvement at Troon North Golf Club."

In May of this year, AMPD and Troon announced a partnership that will provide the best in golf swing development, golf fitness, training, athleticism and conditioning to members and customers of Troon-managed golf facilities. AMPD’s Troon North location is the first at a Troon-managed facility.

"AMPD could not be more excited for the opening of our new performance studio at Troon North,” said AMPD CEO Phil Donnelly. “When we entered into our partnership with Troon earlier this year, we identified a number of high-end Troon facilities at which we could provide our premier golf fitness services, while working with some of the best teaching professionals in the country. With such a diverse and passionate group of golfers living and traveling to the Scottsdale area, Troon North provides the ultimate golf destination resort, where we can positively impact members and guests. We are honored to be joining the dedicated team of professionals at Troon North’s world-class facility and are eager to get to work changing the shape of the game.”

AMPD Golf Fitness was established by Damon Goddard and Andrew Banner in 2013 with one goal in mind – to create the standard in the golf fitness industry through bio-mechanical golf-specific programming and physiological recovery.

After four years of producing champions at all levels of the game and a passion and desire to continue to change the shape of golf and fitness, AMPD Golf Performance was founded. With a new name came a refined direction, a new location and new leadership under the direction of former banking executive, Phil Donnelly.

“AMPD’s approach to training golf-athletes is designed to provide golfers the ability to regain their mobility, stability, increase speed, and most importantly, reduce their risk for injury,” said Damon Goddard, Director of Performance at AMPD and a Golf Digest Top-50 Golf Fitness Professional. “We have had the privilege to work with every type of golfer from weekend warriors to LPGA and PGA TOUR players and know how to deliver the most effective programming for any individual’s specific needs.”
