Ugh dood, that sucks royally. I went through a phase of 5-6 years where it happened routinely. Thankfully, I have not experienced for a few years now. Hope it gets better soon.

Physical fitness is as much about prevention as it is about enabling new levels of performance.

In other words, I think your off-season fitness plan will be good for you.

I think the years of horrible posture and lack of exercise has hit me. I’m glad I am like 60-80lbs lighter than I was in college. Yea, not lifting weights or doing any sort of physical activity for weeks on end or only 1-2x a week has caught up to me. 

from what I read, the severity of my symptoms means it’s highly reversible with PT.

Not sure it is the same for you but for me it was about restoring my 'S' curve. Have been laying on a rolled towel underneath my lower part of the spine for a few minutes everyday to gently push the curvature back in the spine (skywards if laying on back). Started it a few years ago and has been a great help resetting posture abuse everyday (especially if you are desk hugger like me).

I know you are talking about about a separate plan but FWIW am now regularly carrying my bag with shoulder blades pulled back (it works like one of them posture strap thingy). Walked 27 holes last Friday carrying. Back has never felt stronger after a couple of months of carrying now. Huge change.

We're going to, a few of us here on staff.

I’ll take a look at it.

Probably. After my chiropractor I can feel my shoulder blades back more, with my lower back feeling more curved.

Little off topic but is/will there be a thread for this? I searched and didn't find one. I currently lift 5-6x a week but it is just standard hypertrophy movements, basically me trying to build more muscle but would be interested in a golf specific one.

I was watching a few youtube channels for helping the back. Like, they denounce good morning lifts, or deadlifts. It is nearly impossible to make it so you maintain the S curve in your lower back for each rep. The amount of stress you put on your lower back, just to exercise your hamstrings and quads do not seem good. You really have to have some crazy good hip mobility to get your hips back far enough to maintain that S curve.

    • I got lost while reading about shaft droop from this 2009 abstract: (PDF) Understanding the mechanisms of shaft deflection in the golf swing PDF | An understanding of shaft dynamics during the golf swing was gained through a series of theoretical simulations, using a 3D forward dynamics... | Find, read and cite all the research you need on ResearchGate Maybe I'll take up ping pong...
    • No worries.  Thanks.
    • The putters are my seventy-eight-year-old Dad, who doesn’t play much golf anymore. And, like a little kid, once I brought them out, he’s now having fun putting around the house. When I told him about the situation, he didn’t seem thrilled to be selling them. Honestly, he’s having a good time; I’d really can’t sell it now I apologize; I got ahead of myself. I’ll keep you in mind if we go to sell them. Again, sorry for any inconvenience.
    • Wanted to break 90 for 2 or 3 years even, got close a few times but couldn’t. Over the winter I worked a lot with a coach, on putting and then in the spring I got my wedges dialed in for distance. I am now regularly breaking 90, usually only a hole or two will stop me from breaking 80. So my best 9 hole result is +1 for example.    I will be working on my game a lot over the winter and I expect to break 80 next year. 
    • I was between Phil and Nelly, and went with Nelly.   18 with Phil would make it a lot closer.  The season that Korda had was amazing.
