   These services can be divided into six distinct performance areas:

A. Diagnostics
   Dynamic and Static Analyses of the Golf Body: At the games elite level,
   biomechanical assessment is essential to insure that the prescribed programming is
   individualized and can be directly linked to your swing. Our team utilizes the Advanced
   Motion Measurement (AMM) 3-D Motion Capture System to help us identify your
   swing efficiency that can lead to both consistency and speed generation. Our team will
   work directly with your instructional team to help them understand how these diagnostic
   findings will be utilized to build your program.

B. Body Work (Manual Therapy and Corrective Exercises)
   Hands-on Services Designed to Help Golfers Feel Better and Play Better! Our
   performance body work program examines range of motion, flexibility, joint stability and
   strength as they relate to the golf swing. These services are ideal for you if you are a
   golfer who has a past, current or chronic injury that is affecting your ability to play golf.
   Our services will help you not only alleviate current pain, but also prevent future injuries
   and maximize your potential.         These services are featured by our mobile golf
   performance team at weekly PGA TOUR® events
C. Strength and Conditioning

   Before initiating a comprehensive strength & conditioning plan, players need to be
   assessed for any underlying limitations to range of motion, muscular balance,
   biomechanical efficiency, ground force production, etc.       Specific insight into these
   critical and influential issues will determine what steps need to be taken before beginning
   true strength & conditioning programs. This initial screen and subsequent program
   design cannot be compromised, if maximum performance is truly desired. If any physical
   limitations are uncovered during these assessments, program design will begin with
   specific corrective exercises, which can be done in combination with various manual
   therapy techniques as well. Upon determining that muscular imbalances, limited ranges
   of motion, etc. are corrected, then a player’s program can progress with movement
   pattern      drills      and       ultimately      implementing        the       complete
   Mobility/Stability/Strength/Power continuum within their customized periodized plan.

   Effective strength & conditioning is accomplished when it’s integrated within a yearlong
   process called periodization. This helps focus training on in-season, off-season and pre-
   season segments. Not only does this roadmap for training allow an athlete to have peak
   performance when necessary, it also ascertains that the body is rested, protected and
   responsive along the way.       Periodization is a scientific approach to strength &
   conditioning, taking related, overlapping and often-contradictory factors into
   consideration. Especially in the case of competitive golf, where the season is long and
   where maximum performance is almost constant, periodization is critical to elevating
   potential and achieving optimum results.

   Programs can be structured so that players train primarily at one of our facilities, while
   out on TOUR or with their independent strength coach when at home.
C. Nutrition
   Knowing what foods to eat and when to eat them will help you recover faster and
   take your game to the next level! The sports nutrition component of your golf-
   training program will improve your performance while increasing your energy levels both
   on and off the course. Proper nutrition can also aid in increasing muscular strength,
   improving body composition and enhancing mental acuity and alertness.

D. Medical Services including yearly physicals
   All other professional sports have their players go through a comprehensive physical
   before the beginning of each season. This assessment is crucial in evaluating a player’s
   overall health, determining baseline numbers and offering continuity of care throughout
   the season. This service will help prevent non-golf related injuries and/or illnesses as
   well as identify other factors that could be effecting your body and golf swing that may
   not be necessarily be detected during the others aspects of our performance program.

E. Vision
   Understanding how vision can affect performance in golf is important. The use of
   your visual system impacts every aspect of your golf game and if you are in need of
   glasses or contact lens correction you will not be able to see your target properly. Itchy
   eyes from environmental allergies can make your ability to wear contact lens
   uncomfortable and thus a distraction.        Processing visual information and visual
   perception by the brain is dependant on both eyes working together. So ocular
   misalignment or “lazy eye”, depth perception and binocular vision are important factors.

   If you want to maximize your potential as a golfer, it is essential to identify any vision
   problems you may have. This evaluation extends beyond simply your eyesight and eye
   related health problems. It can also help determine how your entire visual system may be
   impacting your game.

                     Structured Performance Camp

Professional golf at the game’s highest level is the only professional sport that
does not utilize a structured pre-season training camp to prepare its athletes for
the upcoming season or qualifying school.

To meet this need, Back9 TOUR Services, a division of Back9Fitness®, has
developed a training camp program to help top-level professionals properly
prepare during the off-season.

Touring professionals will receive physical and biomechanical assessment
leading to a customized program design based on the professionals needs and
goals, assuring the proper physical development necessary to play successfully
and consistently at the game’s highest level. Players will train and practice in
our state-of-the-art facilities following an individualized and structured
performance plan.

Players have the flexibility to commit to multiple day and/or week program
formats based on their individual needs and goals. This program is now
offered to professionals on the PGA, Champions, LPGA, Nationwide and
other Mini-Tours as well as developmental programs for the highest-level
amateurs working to take their games to the next level.

“When it comes to hands-on body work for golf, there is no better team. The
bottom line is I play better when I am working with Back9 Tour Services!”

            - Michael Allen, PGA TOUR® Member and winner of 2009 Senior PGA

“Thanks for all your help. You and your team are great at what you do! All the

                     - Steve Elkington, 10-time PGA TOUR® winner, including the
                1995 PGA Championship and 1991 and 1997 Players Championships

“My swing has always depended on timing. When it was on it was great, when
it wasn’t, I hit it awful. By nullifying my weak body parts, I am now so much
more stable. I can hold my golf posture throughout the swing and repeat the
right body positions without worrying about timing. So basically, my bad days
now are where my goods used to be, and my good days are way beyond. It’s
been huge!”
                        - Rory Sabbatini, 5-time PGA TOUR® winner, including the
 2007 Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and 2008 HP Byron Nelson Championship

"I chose Back9Fitness and Jeff Banaszak for my Golf Center in Texas because
I was looking for the absolute best person to run our fitness center. I knew
Jeff had been working with tour players for many years. More importantly, he
has the passion for his career path and leaves no stone unturned.

“Jeff and his team can work with anyone at any level. Jeff is truly someone
who improves lives. He is the best in his field."

                                    - Jim McLean, Owner Jim McLean Golf Schools
Quotes by Jason Bohn in Golfweek (August 2, 2010) - Special Report: PGA
TOUR Medical Exemptions article written by Adam Schupak:

Consider the case of Jason Bohn, who received a note from Tim Finchem
offering his best wishes before undergoing back surgery to remove a disk
fragment lodged behind the nerve cavity. In surgery, Bohn’s spinal cord was
cut, requiring two more operations. For 32 days, he was bedridden and
couldn’t lift his head above his waist. “I wasn’t thinking golf,” Bohn said. “I
was thinking about being able to get up so I could play with my kids.”

Due to this experiences, Jason hired a physical-therapy team, Back9 TOUR
Services a division of Back9Fitness®, which travels the TOUR and provides
fitness, training, massage therapy and nutrition expertise to several clients.
Bohn spends 6 - 7 hours per week getting his body ready to play and pays
roughly $40,000 per year for the company’s services. “I’ll probably have to
rehab and use Back9 until the day I stop playing golf or the day I go 6 feet
under, whichever comes first,” he said.

When Bohn won the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in April, his team of
therapists was among the first he publicly thanked. It was his second career
title, but Bohn equally cherishes his sixth-place finish at the 2008 Verizon
Heritage. That tournament finish earned him enough money to keep his card
after his first medical extension for a rib injury he sustained in 2007. Said
Bohn: “That was like a win for me.”
