With a little prevention and good form, most golf injuries are avoidable. According to experts, the biggest issue with golf is the image that it’s sedentary. People don’t realize that you need good flexibility, strength, and proper technique or you could get hurt.
The list of possible golf injuries is surprisingly extensive. Many result from some aspect of the swing-which involves an explosive forward motion and violent muscle contractions. Because you’re holding a club with a relatively heavy head that acts as a long lever arm, the forces are magnified. Other injuries result from improper form and from the repetitive nature of the sport.
