Derek Newman has been my personal trainer for the past three years and his knowledge of physiology is impressive; he has made it possible for me to attain my exercise/physical goals. Greg Justice has a golden reputation as one of the first serious personal trainers in the Kansas City area.
This book Derek and Greg authored reflects not only their deep knowledge of the body and its interrelated moving parts, but, and to my surprise, a sound knowledge of the golf swing and the game itself. Much of what I’ve read in the book echoes what my golf pro/instructor has pointed out to me as I’ve begun to attempt to rebuild a dormant golf swing.
I think this book is a good read for golfers of any age. Applying its tenets may just change the age-old correlation between golf and a bad back.
There is nothing this book doesn't cover from wind, to stance and posture, to attitude, to clubs, to aim, slopes, altitude, trees, swing, warm-up, stretches, rhythm, breathing, core exercises, hamstring, groin, chest, trunk, neck, shoulders, flexibility, limits, relaxation, the body's fascia system for crying out loud and on and on it goes. I'm not even covering a smidgen of the information to be found in this book.
I am truly impressed! I will certainly use some of the exercises in the book because they are well thought out and look to me as if I will get maximum result from minimum input. It really should be five stars but because I don't play golf and have no intention to ... it'll have to be four. I will have to buy a copy for my neighbour who loves golf!
