How to prevent common golf injuries

Golf is a wonderful recreational game that people from many athletic backgrounds can participate in. You don’t have to be a world class athlete, let alone an athlete in general to play golf.

Still, it is a very physically demanding sport if you don’t understand the basics.

The following are the most common golf injuries prevention tips:

Inflexibility – Golf relies on your ability to move, so if you are inflexible you could harm yourself through muscle strains.

Not conditioned – Golf doesn’t require you to be in top top shape, but you should be conditioned enough to be able to walk hills.

Read reviews of real products and movies. No fake stuff.


Don’t over do it – You can practice and play golf too much. This leads to overuse issues, which then lead you to hurting yourself. It is a vicious cycle. Take time off, rest.

Poor mechanics – I am the last person in the world to offer advice on mechanics since my swing is just awful, but bad mechanics can lead to many stresses on your frame.

Golf balls – Don’t laugh. Getting plunked in the head is horrible and should be avoided. Still, you need to know it is a risk, so you should always pay attention.
