    I won’t. After some of my vertebrae were fused it virtually ended my golf.
    Are you trying to tell us you are comparable to a world class golfer and athlete? One with millions upon millions of dollars that can afford the absolute best medical care and therapy there is?


    Sure. I could see it.

      You always have to stretch things. Iím talking about backs. The golf swing is essentially the same for every one albiet the ability to control it varies with each individual. You buy that?

        No. Not unless you can convince me that you could hit a golf ball 350 yards consistently before your surgery and still 300 yards after, I'll go on thinking there are massive differences between your body makeup and Tiger Woods'.

        How old were you when you had your back surgery?

          You are completely missing the point I am trying to make. My comment are about a fused spine and how it is affected by the golf swing for anyone. I have had two back surgeries one of which entailed a spinal infusion. My conversations with the surgeons were about how the swing affects the spine and what they advised to continue playing. The feed back was about the amount of torque a player uses when they address the ball and what clubs need the most modification. The response was that the driver was the most harmful to the spine because it requires a higher torque to be effective. Every doctor I talked with had the same advise. Their recommendation for the adjustment was to use a a lower torque off the tee box. In essence curb the driver and use something different. They indicated that continuing to use the Driver would shorten the playing life of the player on average of 20 %.if they had a fused spine.

          It isn’t a matter of how good or bad the player is that he was commenting about rather the decline and deterioration of the fused area in the spine from playing golf.
