What I do in this ebook is look at what Tiger Woods says and illustrates about golf technique in his book “How I Play Golf”. I take what Tiger Woods does, and I apply the Alexander Technique principles of good posture and good body use to this specialized activity. I show how the Alexander Technique can further refine technique in golf, by taking tension and effort out of the drive, putting, and chipping.
When the club is swung there has to be flow throughout the whole body. If the golfer is trying to gain control of his or her swing with unnecessary tension, this tension over time causes wear and tear to the joints. This wear and tear will lead to pain and injury, and the quality of the player’s game will go down. You do not have to ever injure yourself in golf, if you use the postural principles described in detail in this ebook.
This ebook assists the golfer is finding a truly aligned head, neck, and torso, which gives the golfer the alignment to hit the ball incredibly far and accurately without causing wear and tear and injury to the back. Many golfers are not aware that their heads are falling forward and downward as they position themselves to hit the ball.

The Alexander Technique also does another thing that is unique in this movement technique. It helps you identify any misconceptions you have about golf technique.
Example: Many golfers are taught to stick their butts out to align the torso over the legs. The problem with this is that it causes many golfers to arch their lower backs. When the golfer drives the ball, this over-arching and tension in the lower back can cause lower back problems over the time. The hips are part of the torso, and the lower back, or waist, is not a joint.
