Hi,

I am trying to find some data on the anthropometry of golfers in
particular, the length of the arm (in absolute and relative i.e. %
of
height) and shoulder and hip width. The greater the length of the
arm
and shoulder width, the greater the length of the arm-club lever can
be, thereby increasing club-head velocity and and therefore ball
displacement. Hip width may affect the size of the base of support
and hence their stability.

If someone has something on other athletes who hit balls (i.e.
tennis
players, soccer players etc) that would also be welcome.

Thanks
