For more than 400 years, the secret of the golf swing has been one of the most fascinating and frustrating mysteries known to mankind. Despite remarkable advances in golf club technology, golf instruction, and golf course conditioning, the average golfer's handicap hasn't changed in the past 30 years. Not coincidentally, the nation as a whole is becoming less healthy due to the sedentary lifestyle that is harming our bodies at an alarming rate. We are then taking our dysfunctional bodies to the golf course. Roger Fredericks, a leading golf instructor and golf fitness pioneer who has worked with the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, and Arnold Palmer, takes readers on a step-by-step journey to explain precisely why golfers have a hard time improving and more importantly, what to do about it. In The Flexible Golf Swing, he lays out his commonsense approach and explains in detail the true fundamentals of the golf swing, and precisely how the mechanics are merely symptoms of how a body functions.
This proceedings volume of the ISEA 2006 examines sports engineering, an interdisciplinary subject which encompasses and integrates not only sports science and engineering but also biomechanics, physiology and anatomy, and motion physics. This is the first title of its kind in the emerging field of sports technology.
"If you watch a game, it's fun. If you play it, it's recreation. If you work at it, it's golf." --Bob Hope This is an easy to read and understand instructional book to help adult players sharpen their skills. Although most golfers never improve once they reach adulthood, author Bill Kroen wants to help those golfers get past that and take their game to a new level. Readers will learn how to really learn the game (not just how to swing), they'll gain a greater sense of awareness of the total golf experience, and they will finally learn how to take their practice game to the golf course. Drawing on his background in psychology, Kroen directs his readers to envision the results they want. Then they can put what they read into practice without the confusion caused by most instructional books. Golf: How Good Do You Want to Be? offers a blueprint for resourceful practice and practical application with chapters including "The Mental Connection," "The Art of Practice," "Thinking Your Way Around the Course," and "Scoring Well."
In this revolutionary book, author Roger Fredericks explores both the worlds of golf instruction and flexibility and explains precisely why the majority of golf instruction is ineffective, and why various golf instruction methodologies are not conducive to certain individual body types. Not just a golf instruction book and not just a flexibility book, Fredericks teaches the readers how to combine the two and in effect improve your golf swing once and for all. Roger Fredericks a leading golf instructor, pioneer in the world of golf fitness, and author of the smash hit Infomercial (over 100,000 copies sold) and DVD, this book takes readers on a step-by-step instructional journey, explaining why golfers have a difficult time improving and what one can do about it. Using a common sense approach Fredericks reveals on the pages of Secrets of Golf Instruction & Flexibility the true fundamentals of the golf swing, how your golf swing mechanics are merely symptoms of how your body functions, and most importantly what golfers can do to maximise their golf instruction AND their flexibility.
