I think Rocco's probably biased from his own back issues. His swing isn't exactly Rory-like, and Fred Couples has always had back issues. Rocco got lots of "treatment" but never really worked out, also.

 

Rory may have a long career. Nobody really knows.

Who comes to mind of a very violent looking swing and played for years? How about Arnie, if there was every a golfer who just wanted to hit the ball like it insulted their mother, it was Arnie. 

 

I think we attribute knee/hip/back problems because Tiger has them. It could be that Tiger is injury prone, or he overworked himself in the weight room, or maybe he did have a problem with his swing. Its tough to say.
