Golfers are especially injury-prone…until now.

One of the big stories this year is Anthony Kim’s return to professional golf after an 11-year hiatus. 

Man, that dude was so good when he first came up. 

Who knows what he would have become without his laundry list of injuries and surgeries? 

We see injuries in all sports, but us lunatic golfers may have it the worst. 

I will argue toe-to-toe with anybody that the golf swing is the most complex movement of any sport.   

And because of that, there are an almost limitless number of ways to get injured (Yay for us).   

On days when we play, we hopefully hit the range, then hit the course. 

Between the two, we’re putting our bodies through a very violent movement 100+ times.  

And THAT is a lot of stress on the body. 

Now, I don’t recommend it, but soccer players could theoretically focus on just their ankles, knees and maybe their hips (lower body).  

And stay relatively injury-free.   

Golfers on the other hand, need to protect our ankles, knees, hips, back, wrists, shoulders, neck – pretty much all our joints. 

Of course, there are muscle injuries, but the joint injuries are the ones that keep guys off the course for entire seasons.   

So, what should we do to avoid injuries? 


Our muscles keep our joints safe.   

And, as we’ve learned looking back at the history of golf injuries, the lion’s share is joint-related. 

So, in the wise words of Sergeant Phil Esterhaus from the tv show Hill St. Blues… 

“Let’s be careful out there.”  



PS – Each time we build out a new training program, injury-prevention is always one of our main components. 

It’s kinda like building a car with airbags. 

So, if you staying on the course for years to come, I highly recommend you join us in the 18STRONG Membership

See you on the inside.
