Ross, I have chronic lower back and right hip pain and stiffness. Do a lot of stretching and so forth, but its something I hve to deal with. will your swing method put less strain on my back & hip?
Hi Richard Most of my students say their back feels much better with my method, but each individual is different. The reason my swing should help is that, if my method is done correctly, the downswing is unwinding all the way to the finish and the back releases right when the back shoulder touches the chin… and the torso must come up and out to finish facing the target… with all the weight on the front foot. Many golfers let their arms/club pass the body and they try to keep their head down way too long and that really pulls on the back.
Now, some of my method tries to maximize torque by starting the shoulders while the lower body resists… this does wind up the back a little, but how much is up to you. With your issue you may just let the hips come along with the shoulders, but always keep the weight at least 60% forward, so you can turn and let your back release correctly. You have to be the judge on this Richard. If you’re feeling pain, don’t continue… but I think you’ll be fine in moderation.
