The exercises recommended by Dr. Jobe and his colleagues work! They have helped me get from a 15 to a 7 handicap, by increasing my trunk stability, and allowing me to achieve a full shoulder turn. My shots have greater length and accuracy, and I feel better at the end of eighteen holes. I recommend this to anyone looking to improve their game and willing to put in the hard work to follow the routine.

Format: Paperback
This book contains the essential elements of an easy-to-follow how-to book. The authors explain the why, what and how clearly; and the use of pictures is most helpful. The authors are highly credible (orthopedic surgeons and physical therapists). I am 50 years old and a 16 handicapper who plays three or four times a month. The last 3 or 4 years, I had been experiencing lower back pain while playing and I had lost some distance from my game (ie - drives were traveling 210-220 rather than 240-250). A physical therapist started me on this books regimine five months ago. So far, the results are improved flexibility, better strength, no more back pain and some improved distance in shot length. The daily routine takes 30 minutes or less. I will continue to follow its program and look forward to more improvement.

I exercise regularly, wanted to make my program more golf-specific. I wanted much more information on aerobic training and weight training, especially specific programs before the golf season. This wasn't it.

As a serious golfer, I want to change my exercise routine for golf. These were already exercises I was doing with a trainer as well as in other books. I specifically wannted more on aerobic training, nutrition and how to train before golf season and during(seems to be my biggest problem). I want to know why and when, this didn't do it. Might only be $10, but if I got to see the book first, I wouldn't have gotten it. I want it all spelled out with some justification, this wasn't the ticket.
