The conversation about the Stack & Tilt swing continues unabated. I don't think I've read this many letters about one subject since....featherlights. Most of the letters we get are testimonials. Once in a while, they go the other way. Gregory Bell of Itasca, Illinois found that the "shiftless swing" with the "pelvic thrust" drove his back nuts.
In September piece on Stack & Tilt, physical therapist Ralph Simpson, commenting on the swing, says:
Mike Bennett replies:
Here's reader Bell's take on all that.
Â Â Â Â Â Â I am a fit 51 year-old golfer who has been playing golf all his life. I decided to give stack and tilt a shot. I only lasted three rounds before excruciating lower back pain ended my experiment with it.

Let's face it, there are three realitis here: what's taught, what we hear and what we actually do, all of which may be different. Sounds like it's a good idea to have one's back in decent, flexible shape before going all stack, all tilt, all the time.
