About the Book

First published in 1990, this reissue contains the papers presented at the First World Scientific Congress of Golf, held at the University of St Andrews. This Congress was the first gathering of its kind, bringing together leading scientists researching into golf, including specialists in sports medicine, exercise psychology, coaching, sports psychology, equipment design and golf construction and management.

As the first overview of the science of golf, this reissue will be a key reference in libraries serving sports science and sports medicine researchers and will be required reading for the golf industry as a whole
