Do you suffer from lower back pain? If so, you're not alone. Lower back pain is a common golf injury. In fact, 28.1 percent of all players suffer from lower back pain, says a recent report from TPI, which surveyed over 31,000 players. It's also among the most common injuries pro golfers suffer. One report says about 23 percent of golfers deal with lower back pain. But while your lower back is the site of the pain, it's not usually the cause of it. Unusual motions in other parts of the body force the lower back to work excessively hard, creating pain. Often, it's the lack of mobility in hips, thoracic spine, and shoulders that are the cause of the unusual motion. These moving parts working against each other can cause improper swing mechanics - which puts strain on the lower back.

What swing flaw would you like to eliminate from your golf game?  If you’re like most golfers, it’s probably slicing.  Slicing pumps up your scores and your golf handicap. Fact is - the game's no fun when you slice. Eliminating...

What’s the biggest difference between how you play and how the pros play? Some say shotmaking. Others say course management or short game. What about flexibility? Flexibility allows for full range of motion as well as the potential to reach maximum length and power. This is key if you want to improve your distance and outdrive your partners on the course. One area you can work on to improve—especially as you get older—is your flexibility. PGA and LPGA players tend to have great flexibility. Some of them are just naturally flexible. Others work hard it and develop it over time. Increasing your flexibility might not sound like a big deal, but it is.
