YES !!! YES !!! YES !!!
I have been saying this for a very long time now. Certain sports do more harm than good. Golf is, in my opinion, a very very bad sport. The reason is very simple. Professional golfers ruin their backs. Most people who play golf are not professionals and most people know much less than the professionals how to swing the club correctly.
Stop playing golf and go for an exercise routine that involves rowing a boat. Instead of paying for the privilege at a golf club to ruin the back, why not get a cheap bicycle and ride around the track and field course, or in the back yard.
