Patrick Cantlay's Back-Saving Swing (Video)

This is an interesting video from Dr. Greg Rose. It shows how Patrick Cantlay's back injuries actually came from an overdone combination of being very flexible and starting his downswing with his lower body.

I'll let you study Rose's video because that's the best way to understand what happened. But I think it's important to realize that the dramatic lower body move many instructors recommend for starting your downswing can actually cause back problems.

Equally interesting is how Patrick reduced that lower body action -- actually incorporated more of a classic swing move into his backswing -- without losing any clubhead speed.

This is a good video to help you see why you don't need exaggerated movements in your swing to create clubhead speed, and that using less dramatic leg action can help save your back without sacrificing distance.
