R.I.’s PGA Pro Brad Faxon Visits OPT Middletown

By admin

Thought by many to be the greatest putter in PGA tour history, Brad Faxon practices his magic touch on the carpet at OPT.  Bert Reid, DPT, looks on in amazement and envy of his putting prowess.


Barrington, RI’s own Brad Faxon made the trip to Middletown OPT recently.  Working on flexibility and trunk exercises related to golf, Brad was prepping for his trip abroad to this week’s Senior British Open.  Brad also received a new pair of foot orthotics in time to travel to Turnberry for the tourney, which starts Thursday, with Brad off the 1st tee at 10:10.  Brad had been a patient 4 years ago, and also had orthotics made back then.  He spent some of his Summer in Newport in between some Champion’s Tour events and the PGA Traveler’s Championship in Hartford, CT.

OPT PT has a specialty in Sports Performance training, and Bert has his certification with the NikeGolf Performance Program as well as Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) certification.  Several of the staff have completed the updated training in rehab, sports biomechanics and team training via the Gray Institute’s Fellowship called the G.I.F.T. program.  The GIFT program is the only one of its kind and fewer than 300 people nationwide have completed the Fellowship, and that includes co-owner Don Levine, D.P.T., and Guerrino Boni, the manager in the Wakefield office.

OPT wishes the best of luck to Brad at the Open Championship.
