Jon, The muscles stretch three different ways, for any power explosive movement the muscles use the stretch/shorten cycle. In golf muscles are stretch by rotational acceleration or speed. (velocity). When the muscles is stretched the muscles produces elastic energy. This elastic energy increase the acceleration of the contraction the muscles. This makes the body segment (upper body) accelerate faster, this increases the rotation speed of the body segment. If the muscles is stretched for too long the chemical energy dissipated or turns into heat. Which means the muscles lost elasticity. You lose acceleration or rotational speed of the body segment. In this case it's the upper body. The lower body produces acceleration by how we push and pull against the ground, the lower body decelerates (Slows downs)as an effect again how we press forward in the downswing. Again by using the ground our Lower body stabilises, does slide lateral or spin out etc. We have to train our lower body mechanics how to achieve this. Ok so what happens is when the lower body accelerates it stretches the muscles between the lower body and upper body. We want the lower body to quickly slow down or decelerates so the muscles can contract in order to utilise the elastic energy to make the upper body accelerate or rotate faster. If the lower body doesn't slow down the muscles get over stretched and we lose the contraction of the muscles utilising SSC. The other reason the lower body must slow down is to transfer the speed of the lower body to the upper body. The speed of the lower body transferred and the contraction speed off muscles accelerating the upper body combines causing the upper body to double in speed. The lower body doesn't slow down it can't transfer speed and energy to the next segment. The explanation is basic physics of conservation of momentum. In any rotational movement the human body replicates the same patterns, base ball, tennis, throwing a ball or golf. Any world class athlete who has a Kinetic link produces the patterns above. It's known as coordination, the kinetic link is the most effective coordination pattern the body can replicate over and over again. It also the most effective way to produce speed and power in any rotational movement sport. Any on the above you have to measure some one's coordination in 3D to know how the body is coordinating rotational movement. Eye or video won't see it, to train it you have to train a person's coordination or nueormechanics. Swing mechanics doesn't teach us coordination.
” The faster the deceleration” and stabilisation of the lower body.
This jumble of words makes no sense Scott, please explain ?

So, your first post was not aimed as a general question, but merely a ruse to get people interested in, to quote your words from your 2nd post ....... "what we offer". I would have thought this should have come with a comment that "this is, a paid for advertisement"
Nothing can compete with experience in my opinion but what TPI does offer is a look at the body and how that might affect a players opportunity to make his best swing.
Let me give you an example,
You have a player who is coming over the top, so as a golf coach you’re trying to get him the use his lower half so he will bring the golf club down on a better plane into impact.
Now a physical restriction might be the reason he can’t make this move in his downswing. A player has to be able to disassociate his lower half from his upper body for him to be able to create the right sequencing in his downswing.
TPI professionals can look at a motion and take a player through certain tests to see if there are any physical limitations hindering him from improving his motion. If there are limitations then he can prescribe some simple exercises and swing drills to help improve these physical limitations.
Hope this helps give you a better understanding to what we offer. I would recommend looking up a TPI professional near you and at least have a physical screening to see what comes out in the test and then see if anything shows up in your golf motion.
