From Golf Digest internet site. A good read, inspirational and upsetting.
Here's a former military man, lost half his leg in Iraq along with other bad hurts, has taken up golf and is doing well. He does not use a prosthesis but carries a home-made prop upon which he rests his stump. Overall this man is young, strong and fit.

Look at McIlroy and see how much 'push' he gets. The free-wheeling of the upper body and total release of the club head provides the club head speed. Some golf teachers focus on the lower body to provide power but here is an example of just the opposite. No power, only speed.
