Chuck Dillman, William Sterett and I wrote a golf injuries
summary chapter in "Golf:The Scientific Way" edited by Alastair Cochran.
It was published by Aston Publishing Group, U.K. That may help your
work, and give you plenty of other references.

Freddie Fu has a nice text called "Sports Injuries" I believe. In it he has
well referrenced discussions on shoulder injuries that may include golfing
injuries. His bibliography should help as a source as well. Also the
classic Rockwood and Matsen series on the shoulder is an extremely valuable
resource. It too is well referenced.
Good Luck!!
