I am a 24 year old former collegiate golfer, and this book is probably one of the best I have read for golf specific training. The exercises are described well and the workouts are easy to follow. There is also a nutrition section which talks about how to be healthier day to day as well as what to eat pre / during a round. For anyone looking to increase flexibility, strength, power, eat better, prevent injury, this book is a must.

Just a side note, but the movement prep sequence for the workouts / pre round are worth the price of this book itself. I will never workout or play golf again without completing the Movement Prep beforehand, it is the best stretching / warm up routine I have seen.

I highly recommend this book.

This is a comprehensive plan to build your core, improve your balance and get in shape for golf (and other sports). Mark touches on many aspects of sports preparation including nutrition and stretching. This holistic approach gives you all the keys to succeed and allows you to create a plan that fits you. There is some product promotion, but it doesn't detract from the wealth of information provided.

This is a great book for exercises you can do at home to help you core muscles and build muscle strength. Easy reading and picture exercise description. Would recommend this for every golfer to help reduce body injury while golfing.

I got some good exercises from this book. You can get the Jan or Feb Golf Magazine and see the main exercises in this book for free. The book actually has a program and approach that I think is well laid out.

I think this book should also mention more exercises to really strengthen your core muscles. The focus is overly tilted to flexibility.

This book is like one of those infomercials that advertise a product for about 30 mins. The book is very good in convincing why core workout and nutrition is important to playing golf with success for a long time without injury but fails to tell you what to actually do. The book has about 9 chapters and 8 chapters are highly abstract. The 9th chapter has exercises with pictures but no plan (eg: it does not tell you how many reps. to perform niether tells you how any times a week or when to do them)
The name of the book is completely misleading. You will end up confused without knowing what to do at the end of it all.

I bought this book as well as the Ultimate Guide to Weight Training for Golf. I think this book has a better program, particularly when used in conjunction with the Core Performance web site.

You won't leave anything on the course if you follow the guidelines in this book.
When you read this book you will find there is nothing left to doubt as to what your golf fitness level is and what you need to do to improve it. Excellent pictures, instructions and more. The author unveils a section called Movement Prep (a great pre-round stretching routine), swing analysis, nutrition and more. I go back to it every off-season and I probably should refer to it more often.

The exercises provided in this book are rather out-dated. There are so many other exercises that are more condusive to golf these days that need to be put in a revised edition.

Having been in the game for almost 40 years, this book is simply the best one can find to get prepared to play. Injuries and nagging pains as I still compete in my early 50's was the biggest obstacle in really enjoying the game and competition.

Whether you want to rehab an injured elbow as I did, or you want to increase flexibility and reduce pain after your round, this book is the real deal. I felt so strongly about the book that I sent my mother a copy. She's an 18 handicap in her 70's and still looking for a way to a single digit handicap where she was many years ago.

Core Performance Golf gave me a great gift; to continue to play it pain free. Thanks Mark!

The book training exercises are ok but not great. Nutrition portion of the book is horrible. This guy has no idea about nutrition. At one point in the book he recommends drinking Diet Coke. At that point I realized it was time to stop reading. He needs to do his homework about protein, good carbs vs bad carbs, healthy supplements, amino acids and so on.
