So without my knowledge ive switched from a 2 plane swing to a 1 plane swing. TMO did an analysis of my swing and gave suggestions of what I should do.

Golf tec gave me similar advice...

After practicing for hours (range, living room, mirrors) my back is SORE every morning. Its my lower back...

Just wondering if I should go back to my 2 plane swing because I never had pain after swinging a club before....

My 2 plane swing is over the top and my 1 plane swing causes me to hit way too many fat shots, I dont know what gives but Im at the point where Im getting sick of it.....

What'ya guys think?

As far as I was aware, the one plane swing supposedly decreases the chance of back problems, so its more likely the amount of time you've spent practicing. Take a day off.

Wow, thats exactly what I wanted to hear man! Thanks a lot, I like the one plane swing, its a whole lot simpler to me, just dont wanna kill my back....

Im glad the one planer is easier on the back, going out of town for a week tomorrow, so I'll take some time off for sure... Thanks a lot! Jim

i disagree. i don't think the change in swing is causing your back pain. it's your ability to execute the swing correctly. lower back pain is generally caused by the back compensating for other parts of your body. i suppose you can consider it feedback.

btw, i've needed to take the last week off from golf because of a back ache. sucks cuz chicago is having the best week of weather all year.

This happens when you are tensing up when you practicing your swing. If you are doing mirror work, try not to force or tense a swing to hold a position. It should be nice and fluid.

A good exercise is at address tense your muscle as hard as you can, then relax it. That why you can feel the different between loose swing and tensed swing.

    • Day 75.  More wall drill, plus I set up to a ball with my 6-iron (on a mat, but I didn't downswing and hit the ball at any point).  I set up, took the backswing, incorporating what I was getting out of the wall drill.  The thing I really noticed when I got to the top is that my club isn't as far over-extended (seriously, some of those face-on videos looked like I was trying to be John Daly). 
    • Hard to think of a more perfect iron shot from the rough. I guess you could ask to hole out but that seems a little greedy. Brave to even try the shot then it sounds like. Glad you were rewarded!
    • Some of DiMarco's missed putts were pretty timid efforts so that is why I described it as giving them away. He can say he misread them and that is true for some but others really were just poorly struck. It is not to say DiMarco handed the green jacket to Tiger on a silver platter but Tiger was very fortunate that DiMarco did not really capitalize on the chances he was giving himself. That said I agree it does not really take away from the case for Tiger's greatness. The post iacas linked to came off rather biased in tone so I more pointed this out to acknowledge that every Tiger victory was not a controlled cruise either. I think it just goes to show that winning a major is extremely difficult and even the greatest need some bounces to go their way sometimes. It is like that with many sports when played at such an elite level.
    • I played Richter Park a few weeks ago for the first time. It was nice, though not something I desire to drive two hours for. Playing Links at Union Vale again in a few weeks; that is a course that I don't mind the drive for. We could look at other central CT courses. Wintonbury Hills is really nice. I'm playing Gillette Ridge tomorrow, which is supposed to be similar. 
    • Jack's courses always seem to be like you have to always be calculating and many risk/reward decisions. It's harder to relax on his courses, imo.
