CHICAGO, June 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Often referred to as the "best golf teacher In Illinois," renowned PGA instructor Dr. Jim Suttie will share secrets for surviving the game of golf without hurting your back during two free clinics in the Chicagoland this summer.

The "Get Back in the Swing" events will include a free evaluation of your swing by prominent Athletico golf physical therapist Joe Estes, PT, DPT, CGFI. Estes will discuss prevention exercises and keeping your back in shape all-year round. He believes prevention is key since research shows 80 percent of golfers will experience back pain.
