Feel free to post where you find the information and statistic regarding injury related to golf.
Quite a few source have the statistic of injury list for the Tour Players.
The percentage of the injured is high and the average age on the injury list is low comparing to other professional sports.
It is not an old man’s sports like it used to be.
I’m just a weekend warrior, through the decades of dedicated playing and practicing; have bruised C4-C6, dislocated disc in the lower back, injury to the fingers wrist and knees, and accumulated over used joints caused arthritis in shoulders, fingers and hips.
Had spent time with the sports injury specialist and home remedy. Used to take over the counter pain medication before and after each round of golf. Laying off the game during the pandemic really helped to heal the hurting.
Many of the guys started golf with me more than 4 decades ago had already moved on to other activities like hiking, swimming, road cycling. They told me it is not the same as golf but will do for their age and their pocket book.
Many of the retired professional golfers did not make the list, I know Nicklaus had both his hips replaced besides many other related injury. Hurting; seems to come with the sports, whether we’re good at it or not.
