Golf season is here again! The average golfer typically plays approximately 37 rounds per year and spends even more time practicing, so it is not surprising that the rate of injuries is on the rise. Public perception, however, is that golf is a low-risk sport. Other sports such as football, ice hockey, or skiing have higher injury rates, but several studies show that golf has its share of injuries, too. One recent study revealed that during a two year period, 60 percent of golf professionals and 40 % of amateurs suffered an injury while golfing. Over 80 percent of the reported injuries were related to overuse, while the remainder were due to acute trauma.
