Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this book geared to older golfers, golf champion Player clearly illustrates techniques that will improve scores by compensating for lost strength and flexibility. Player focuses on playing problem shots by explaining his famous ``walk-through'' driving style and offers clear directions on exercises that will train ``golfing muscles'' and aid in performance while reducing back strain and extending a player's longevity. He also shows how senior players must compensate by altering their playing strategy. Following his techniques and advice promises to add years to the enjoyment of an amateur golfer. Although a little heavy-handed when discussing Player's philosophy of life and golf, the book is a great find for avid golfers of all ages. Martin J. Hudacs, Towanda H.S., Pa.
