I recently spoke with Ralph Simpson, former PGA Tour fitness consultant on the topic of nagging golfer injuries. Ralph's the smartest guy I know when it comes to treating pain without drugs and, in our May issue, he came up with a three-pronged attack to getting rid of common maladies. The dynamics of swinging a club tend to stress specific areas of all golfer's bodies, so it wasn't hard for Ralph to identify at least one problem spot that likely gives you fits.

Whether it's a bad back, sore knees or achy feet, Ralph has a plan for you that will keep you on the course throughout the upcoming summer.
