Golf is a wonderful, moderate exercise that can help relieve stress.
Get the Right Fit
Consult a professional to ensure your clubs are the right height, are made of a material appropriate to your arm strength, and have the right grip for you.
Work with a professional – the right swing technique can improve your game, and spare you unnecessary pain.
Warm Up and Warm Down
Take a few minutes to stretch before and after your game.
Push, Don’t Carry, Your Golf Bag
Pushing or pulling your bag can help you take a load off.
Choose the Right Shoes
Wearing golf shoes with good support and the proper fit can help to prevent some knee, hip and lower back pain.
