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.
If you need any proof that the Modern Golf Swing is an unworkable theory that is also destroying players’ bodies and careers, look no further than the stats you get comparing numbers (actual and theoretical) between the longest swingers from the Classic Golf Swing era.
Sometimes a picture can destroy without even the need for words, the very flawed and dangerous concepts of the modern swing instruction industry.
This picture, I view as one such photo. Here are Arnie, Jack and Bobbynear the tops of their respective back swings. Three players who absolutely dominated their own generations in terms of their swings, and look at them.
