Golf is perhaps the most complicated simple game ever invented. Watching the professionals gives you only a glimpse of the complexity of what is happening, with each shot involving biomechanics, aerodynamics, ballistics, materials science, probability, even meteorology. Golf Science takes a timely new look at the game by investigating the scientific wonders that transfer the ball from tee to hole. Each chapter investigates a different area of the game and is organized around a series of Q&As. What is the optimum length for a driver? How does backspin work? The answers and the data are presented through illuminating info-graphics. The perfect way to analyse your own kit and technique, by studying the techniques of the professionals and the latest innovations in design and coaching. Golf Science is the ultimate accessory for any golfer wishing to understand their craft.
Golf is perhaps the most complicated simple game ever invented.
Golfing greats like Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods make the sport
look easy, but anyone who has ever picked up a club knows how truly
frustrating golf can be. The success of each shot depends on a
diverse range of factors, from the club you choose and the speed
with which you swing it, to your mood, the weather, and even the
type and cut of the grass. Science plays a crucial role in most, if
not all, of these factors, and in "Golf Science," sports science
expert Mark F. Smith investigates the cutting-edge scientific
wonders that take the ball from tee to hole. Each chapter explores
a different facet of the game--mind and body, the swing, the
equipment, the environment, coaching with technology, the practice
process, and the score--and is organized around a series of
questions. What happens in the brain during the preshot routine?
Does head movement hinder swing performance? Will I hit the ball
farther with a longer driver? Why do I lose distance into the wind?
What can I learn from watching my ball in flight? How should
practice be structured? What are the key stats in golf that I need
to know? Each question is examined with the aid of explanatory
diagrams and illustrations, and the book can be used to search for
particular topics, or read straight through for a comprehensive
overview of how golfer and equipment work together. A must-have for
anyone who delights in the spirit of the game, "Golf Science" will
be enjoyed not only by professionals and coaches but also by
spectators of the PGA Tour and anyone who enjoys a round of
eighteen holes on the weekend.
