Common (And Not So Common) Golf Injuries

Posted on behalf of Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeon

Golf Injuries Atlanta GA The Masters are over and they’ve left everyone with the desire to head out to the golf course to try to attempt the amazing shots made during the tournament. Golf is a great sport. Most people consider it a relatively safe sport considering the lack of contact involved with other players, objects and the ground. However, golf does have its list of common golf related  injuries associated with it. There are some not-so-common injuries as well. Did you hear about golfer Tony Finau? He hurt his ankle while running backward after making a hole-in-one in the Par-3 Contest before the Masters even started.

According to the Golf Channel and Golf Fitness Magazine there are 10 factors that lead to the most common golf injuries.

  1. Back Pain
  2. Tendinitis in the Elbow
  3. Knee Pain
  4. Rotator Cuff
  5. Wrist Injuries
  6. Hand and Finger Injuries
  7. Neck Injuries
  8. Foot and Ankle Injuries
  9. Hip Injuries
  10. Sunburn
