Science and Golf II: Proceedings of the 1994 World Scientific Congress of Golf

By A. J. Cochran; M. R. Farrally | Go to book overview

Foreword

The papers contained within this book were presented at the World Scientific Congress of Golf held at the University of St Andrews from 4th to 8th July, 1994.

The papers and their authors represent a wide diversity not only of sciences themselves, but also of vocations-including golfers who also happen to be scientists, scientists who see interesting applications in golf, scientifically minded coaches and professional scientists working for equipment manufacturers. The common element is a burning interest in the game and the desire to find out more and establish hard evidence on their particular aspects of it.

In producing this book we have followed the same policy as at the first Congress, held in 1990, namely of issuing it in time for distribution at the Congress. This imposes quite strict deadlines on authors and reviewers and we wish to thank all of them for their co-operation.

The papers are grouped into three Parts, entitled The Golfer, The Equipment, and The Golf Course and the Game. Within each Part, similar topics are located as near to each other as possible.

Much of the work reported here was done primarily for interest's sake; but we believe that coaches, equipment designers, golf course maintainers, designers and planners and inquiring golfers generally, as well as scientific researchers, will find something in the book that is of use to them as well as of interest.
