It's not just you. I've read a lot of threads here and unfortunately there's a few people with giant egos that spoil the site. The fish rots from the head down. Fortunately, there are wonderful alternatives!
After 30 years of weightlifting and 21 years of doing and teaching different styles of Yoga I feel totally confident and qualified to answer the question of whether weightlifting and golf go together. My experience over all those years has me answer without hesitation that it truly depends on the individual.
Some people should not be lifting heavy weights period and are better off using their own body weight to increase strength. This can be for a variety of reasons, but there are many ways of increasing your strength without heavy weights if you are one of those people, especially in sports such as golf.
Some people will benefit from heavy lifting and if that works for them , they should continue, but to think everyone should be doing it is without merit. I have personally witnessed many bodies that did not take well to weights.
As one of the posters said and I repeat. If you lift heavy consider a flexibility program to complement the strength training. Putting heavy weights on our back compresses the spine which is already being compressed from gravity over the years and we need to do things to counter that or it can lead to back problems which is what happened to me later in life. Fortunately I found ways to decompress.
