By my nature and by choice, I strive to be positive whenever possible. I begin this review with some positive points before changing direction. It might be helpful to know I hold multiple degrees in sports science ... biomechanics/kinesiology and motor learning. My personal library includes more than 1,000 golf related books and numerous graduate level textbooks. I coached a nationally ranked NCAA Division I golf team and have sold golf lessons to more than 10,000 paying clients over the last 30 years. BEFORE writing this critique, I took the time to read all of the other reviews.

In fairness to the authors, I purchased their book because of the pretty picture on the front cover as well as the organization of the table of contents. I completely agree with other reviewers who found this book to be an excellent fitness book. There is little doubt any person who engages in the contents will be more fit and able to play better golf ... stronger, more flexible, more stable, in better balance and less prone to injury!

The overall organization of the book is excellent. It logically and correctly flows through the necessary progress for improved strength and flexibility being precursors for improved balance, stability and injury resistance. The authors correctly write about how the golf swing and the teaching of the game have improved due to technology (high speed cameras and biomechanics labs). The largest change has been from a hand and arm dominated viewpoint to a "big muscle", body centered motion which sums forces in a kinetically linked chain. Moving from the ancient to the modern creates a need to better understand how the body, not the arms must function.

Having said these positive things, it is also necessary to point out some problems with the book.

I am a Pilates instructor who specializes in corrective exercise. I've been using this program with my golfing clients who suffer from chronic back pain, stiffness, restrictions in the hips, etc. and the results are amazing! They've seen improvements in all aspects of their game. I especially like the diagrams and the way each exercises targets specific aspects of the golf swing. This program will improve your overall strength and fitness which will not only affect your game but your quality of life as well!

I'm a PGA golf professional and Titleist Performance Institute Certified instructor. I find this book to be very accurate and illustrations are very clear. They break down the different topics in a very clear manner. If you follow this exercise manual you will make some great improvement. Two keys are flexibility with stability. This covers both and combines them to make your time more efficient. Great book!

GOLF ANATOMY provides a fine review of the anatomy and muscles required to become a good golfer. It provides keys to increasing strength and power for longer drives and more accurate shots, considering the physical elements that contribute to consistent performance. With color anatomical illustrations to each golf move, this is a top pick!

I have been a casual golfer now for over 15 years. I decided last year to start working on improving all aspects of my game. I had been growing frustrated lately with my lack of progress until a friend recommended this book to me. I have been doing the exercises outlined in this book for six weeks now. There is a marked improvement in my posture upon address of the ball and balance during my swing. This has translated into more consistent ball striking and lower scoring. It has reignited a fire to improve my swing and ball striking. I am excited to experience the progression in my game, as I progress through this book.

"Golf Anatomy has seriously helped improve my swing. I have been struggling with getting enough air and power on my drive. After reading through this book my ball is going further and I have even improved my accuracy. With tips on proper technique and awesome 3D color images of muscles at work, I have been able to train my body to improve not only my drive, but my golf game too!"

This is a wonderful book for increasing golf fitness and the mobility needed to enhance one's golf swing. Each exercise is reviewed in detail along with a Golf Focus recap that highlights what area of the swing that exercise will improve.

I recently borrowed a number of golf exercise books from the library. I was interested in improving my golf physical condition for the upcoming season (I live in Northern NJ and there is snow on the ground now). This book was by far the best book out of the ones that I looked at. It was excellent. It identified key muscle groups that are used during the golf swing and provided a series of exercises to improve the muscles used in that area. The illustrations were very good and the instructions provided very clear.
