The screen is also a great predictor of what swing faults you will have.
THE NUMBER ONE CAUSE OF LOW BACK PAIN IN GOLF = S POSTURE
Golf is a sport that requires strength, flexibility and endurance, any of your bodies biomechanical limitations or imbalances will have a negative effect on your golf swing and game in general.
This S-shape posture during setup of the golf swing puts excessive stress on the muscles and spine. Not only will it lead to pain but also will affect the golf swing leading to a loss of posture or reverse spine angle on the back swing. This means the lower body will be out of sequence on the downswing and will typically cause two different types of miss-hits, the block to the right and a hook to the left.
The number one cause of this posture is called Lower Crossed Syndrome. This is essentially a grouping of weak muscles combined with overactive or tight muscles. One such cause of this muscle imbalance is due to prolonged static posture, such as sitting at a desk all day.
The team at the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) encourages golf professionals to work alongside chiropractors and fitness trainers to detect and correct these limitations giving you the best chance of performing optimally on the course.
We have teamed up with the Greg Lynch Golf Academy to further help golfers achieve a better swing.
