If your golf performance has past its peak and you want to reduce your number of strokes per hole then you really need to buy, read and act on the contents of this book.
While your game is influenced by your technique, you need to ask 'what affects my technique?' The answer is your skeleton and muscles (as well as your mindset.)
If you play golf with (or without) back, shoulder, knee, hip or wrist pain then you need this book to get your body into shape. Golf is a highly athletic sport - the swing generates a lot of force. If you're in poor shape or playing in pain your scores will reflect that and your game will be inconsistent.
The Golf Biomechanics Manual will help you to identify what muscles need stretching and strengthening so that you can radically improve your swing and putting. Once your skeleton can move freely your swing will require less effort and with good technique your number of strokes will decrease.
Before getting the Pro Golfing lessons, buy this book. Follow the exercise program and THEN consider the golfing lessons. Your body will be more responsive and you'll learn a lot quicker from your coach.
I used the exercises from this book with a client who plays golf 1-3x a week and he started noticing improvements in his game within 4 weeks. Infact he shared with me that he was getting almost as good as his wife!
This manual is money well-spent and is a solid investment in your game AND your health.
