4.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Divot and the Older (gasp!) Female Golfer 20 Jan 2005
By Karen L. Kier - Published on Amazon.com
Having taken up golf again once my son had grown, I quickly realized that I was not in the physical shape of the 20 year old I had been when I first started playing in college. After my first injury to my elbow and a badly strained shoulder, I started looking around for a book that would help me with conditioning, preventing injuries and counsel me if (please, no!) this happened once again. At this point I had had enough of physical therapy, MRIs, etc. and didn't wish to injure myself further.

In his book Dr. Divot addresses in two of his chapters The Female Golfer and The Older Golfer -- just made for me, although I have trouble admitting the latter. Over this winter I'm even trying out some of his conditioning exercises in the hope of beginning the golf season stronger and less prone to injury.

I gave copies of his book as gifts to my golf group this past Christmas -- we're all female golfers, but not all of us will admit to being older. We'll see how we do in the Spring.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book for General Knowledge 7 Feb 2007
By F. Riddle - Published on Amazon.com
The book provided me with some great general knowledge and actually helped me diagnose my injuries/little pains. I felt however his treatment methods were quite simple and repetitive. I believe in some more alternative methods to ailments sometimes. Chiropractic care can be beneficial,but the author stuck to conventional rest/ice/physical therapy/surgery fixes on all ailments. A bit disappointed in that, but overall worth the money and time spent.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 16 May 2009
By Paul L - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm 46 and have my share of golf related pain and minor injuries. I can say that this book has done nothing for me. I've had some minor lower back pain and the advise the book gave was rest, and stretch more. Good advise, but I had already figured that out after googling "lower back pain golf". I have also had some minor persistent pain in my left thumb and hip. I found nothing in the book to explain these pains.

This may help those who have no clue about the basics injury prevention. I found the book full of basics that I learned while playing high school sports and I found nothing in the book can't be learned on the internet.

An excellent book of specific explanations relating to golfing injuries and treatment options. Easy to follow advice in a very humerous style. Technical content made user friendly. An enjoyable read.
