Well, it seems no one will have an excuse after today – anyone who is trying to play a power game or hit the ball a long distance (which is, in essence, the “power game”) with a modern golf swing model is putting themselves at risk of back injuries.

Well, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that so many in Wax Nation watch televised golf – but thanks to Frank Nobilo for pointing out something I see all the time, and for his shout-out onThe Golf Channel last night during the 3rd Round coverage of the Sony Open in Honolulu.
Thanks as well to Peter A. with the heads-up, and to those of you who emailed me – I was watching the telecast but I had stepped away from the TV near the end of the broadcast, and I missed it!
I have figured out a way to slow down the Mike Dunaway“stickman” swing gif. that I created years ago, and I found his positions to be illuminating.
There was a lot of discussion back in the Mike Austin days of the then-named DJ Watts Golfblog (later changed to Wax Golf when my swing theory diverged from the Mike Austin model in 2013), about their impact positions.
