Product description


‘Over the last 20 years, golf at the highest level has moved from a game to a sport. The highest standards of preparation and the professionalism of the athlete have become increasingly important determinants of success. Today you hear far more emphasis on preparing to succeed and performance development than technical coaching. This is more apparent now than at any time in the history of the sport. The margins between success and failure are becoming finer and so understanding the "science" of golf is key to anyone involved in playing or developing players - as this outstanding book explains.’ - Martin Slumbers, Chief Executive, The R&A

‘The Routledge International Handbook of Golf Science provides an extraordinary perspective on our sport through 39 separate research papers. By covering biomechanics, participation, skill acquisition, performance and the health benefits of golf, this is a valuable, data-driven resource.’ - Steve Mona, CEO, World Golf Foundation
