Why is the golf swing so difficult? Because it is a dynamic movement involving linear motion as well as rotation while maintaining balance and spine angle. This motion begins with a controlled movement of the hip and pelvis. The trunk and lower back are rotating, while they are also side bending in the same direction.
The golf swing can be described as a movement of a combination of mobility and stability. Because of this stability and mobility component you need to have good core strength as well as good mobility. Increased flexibility will also be of benefit. The core muscles including the abdominal, lower back and muscles about the hip are important to a good powerful and pain-free golf swing
