For what it's worth, it sounds like I'm in a similar boat to you. Herniated disc at L4/L5 and have found relief by gradually building up strenth in my core and around my spine to support the discs (through the same movements/exercises you listed). I have a good bit of boxing in my background and have found that to help build twisting strength (I play tennis as well, which helps). Golf hurts me the most because I am leaning over and twisting at the same time, so i've stuck to things that enable me to maintain a reasonably constant spine angle while twisting. Not sure what my point is, but hopefully it adds perspective.
