Nick Clearwater on How DJ Avoids Back Problems (Video)

This GOLFTEC video has a neat drill to help minimize back strain.

If you read my blog regularly, you know I'm a big believer in hip turn during the backswing. When you try to keep your hips from turning to create more separation between hips and shoulders, you run the risk of really hurting yourself.

Clearwater's drill -- starting your backswing with your trail knee straight and hips pre-turned from the very beginning -- teaches you to move into a position that Arnold Palmer himself used. Arnie would let his trailing knee straighten and his hips turn as he started his backswing. Clearwater is just having you start in that position, to get you used to how it feels.

I don't really need to say a lot about this drill. If you try it, it may feel a bit odd at first but you'll immediately feel less stress in your back. That will tell you all you need to know.
