See your golf game as you never have before. See what it takes to improve consistency and performance on the links. Golf Anatomy will show you how to lower your score by increasing strength, power, and range of motion for longer drives and more accurate shots.

Golf Anatomy goes beyond exercises by placing you at the tee, on the fairways, and on the greens. You'll see how to improve mobility, stability, body awareness, and muscle strength to add distance to drives, consistency to your short game, and accuracy to your putts.

From sand traps to awkward lies, Golf Anatomy will prepare you for even the most challenging of shots. Plus, you'll learn how to stay at the top of your game with targeted injury-prevention exercises for the lower back, elbows, wrists, shoulders, and hips.

Combining expert instruction with beautiful, full-color illustrations, Golf Anatomy is truly an inside look into the game. Whether you're a scratch golfer or simply a fan of the game, this book is a hole-in-one.

Exercises for Elite Golf Performance
Exercises for Elite Golf Performance
by Kelly Blackburn
Paperback from Human Kinetics
ISBN: 0736002359

"
 

It's not a secret that the most vital piece of golf equipment is the human body, yet most golfers believe the best ways to lower scores are big-head drivers, premium golf spikes, and other top-of-the-line tools. It's better physical conditioning that allows the pros to hit drives farther than ever, play 72-hole tournaments nearly every week, and rehabilitate even career-threatening injuries. These pros use the workouts prescribed by the fitness consultant and personal fitness trainer for players on both the PGA Tour and Senior PGA Tour, Kelly Blackburn.

In Exercises for Elite Golf Performance, Blackburn provides the same strength and flexibility program the pros use. Whether you're a fitness professional, teaching professional, coach, or a golfer serious about improving your game, this book ensures you're getting the top training program available. It includes 138 illustrated exercises and Blackburn's ""Fitness Analyzer,"" a series of tests golfers use to evaluate their beginning fitness level.

By using Blackburn's ""Elite Golf Performance Program,"" your shoulders will be more flexible and will rotate for a fuller backswing, and your stronger hip muscles will help you by putting more power behind the ball without having to consciously swing harder. This will result in longer, more accurate shots that allow you to club down and essentially shorten any course.

Don't be fooled into thinking new equipment is the only key in turning your golf game around. Use the pros' workouts to get in shape now and see significant results on your scorecard for the rest of your life.
