Don’t Ruin a Perfect Day of Golf by Getting Hurt

Uncategorized May 19, 2021

Earlier this month, I attended and led a golf yoga stretch break at my second live, in-person event at the Association of Meeting Professionals annual Golf Day. There were 130 people who came out and reconnected for the first time in 14 months.

And it was fantastic - like a reunion!

Now that we’re heading into summer, more people are heading out to play golf – the perfect outdoor activity. However, the dynamic nature of this sport requires flexibility, stability, balance, and coordination.

Swinging a golf club creates repetitive wear and tear on the body, producing up to eight times your body weight in compressive forces to the spine. That's twice as much strain as when you're running.

It’s no wonder that 80% of golfers get injured while playing: Your body could be at risk for muscle, ligament, tendon or joint strain. Some of the more common areas golfers injure? The lower back, wrists, shoulders, elbows and hips.

That’s why you’ll want to do the preventive stretches in my tip sheet – before hitting the green. Avoid or reduce injuries by doing the golf-specific stretch breaks included in my free tip sheet.

Then, you can tee off with confidence!

Be well,
