Get Back on Course with the Right Swing Mechanics
Most back strain in golf can be traced to poor swing mechanics.
Fact: Golf requires solid swing mechanics to provide the best impact and distance. In the 1970s, the “reverse C” finish put excessive strain on the back. Modern swing gurus like Butch Harmon now preach a finish where the back is perfectly straight at the finish — which lessens strain on the back. Amateurs also swing way too hard. Tour pros achieve huge distance by staying in balance and swinging at 80%. The best investment to save your back is to have a lesson with a PGA-certified teaching pro who can provide the right instruction to lessen strain on the back.
