Good information, but only half of the solution.

Take a lesson from a qualified PGA professional who has a clue and learn how to make your body work properly to avoid injury. The fittest athlete will hurt their lumbar region by not finishing to the target properly, with the chest slightly left of the target, belt, right knee and shoe laces to the target.

Give information, but give it completely...

Perhaps you missed it but I did write that the abdominals are "partly" to blame.

As Barry and I have always said (and it's nice that you agree), there is nothing that can take the place of a qualified PGA teaching professional. Only they can stand in front of you, videotape you, tell you what you are doing incorrectly and how to improve.

Agreed, but again, limited in output...

There is nothing that, correct..

BUT...

Video is not always the answer. A qualified teacher must learn how you the student learns, by sight, feel or listening. Just to go to a pro who only uses video is a waste of money. I know of one pro in the Gulf States who only uses video. What happens to a feel of listener, they waste over a hundred+ an hour with him... I have had studnets look at themselves on camera and say it was not them on tape, or they did not do what the camera was showing... An hour wasted and money on their part....

Most important, get a teacher who stresses a proper grip, alignmant, posture, and finally, the finish, the body will do what it has to do to get there, and the lumbar will be safe...Then watch the video if necessary...

Suppose if Daly, or Miller Barber, or Trevino watched video they would have been as great as they once were or could have been. Suppose they would change their swings???

Video, in conjunction with a proper lesson can do wonders for a golf swing.

The basics are mostly to blame and the teaching pros that I use both videotape me as well as give me a good old fashioned lesson. At the beginning of the season we stress fundametals more because there is a bit of "dust" to shake off but as the season progresses, we find out what my flaws, and strengths are...
