The golf swing takes in total of 17 muscle groups in the coordinated movement of hands, wrists, arms, abdomen, and legs according to the study in the BMJ (British Medical Journal). Playing golf on a professional level requires ability to be able to walk long distances (on average 4.5 miles) and hit the ball long and straight with consistency. Golf’s demand for physical use often results in injuries. Since golf demands so much physical movements up to 62 percent of amateur golfers and approximately 88 percent of professional golfers end up with injuries each year. Playing golf can lead to injuries in the lower back, wrist, hand, shoulder, or head.
