-David Costill, Ball State University, Indiana
Golf is a lifetime sport that both men and women of all ages enjoy participating in. However, for the competitive golfer, it is a test of the athlete's physical and mental endurance.

One Out of Two Golfers Will Have a Golf Swing Related Injury - Can You Prevent Yours?
I have a friend who blew out his ACL in his left knee while playing old man basketball. Old man being relative. A bunch of guys playing rec ball in their 30's.

Shortly after the surgery, he was visiting with his doctor on a routine check up when he asked the doctor if he'd be able to dunk the basketball after he completes his rehab.
After a pause, the doctor said, "Sure, you should be able to after you get released from recovery and rehab."
Mike said, "Great! I've never been able to dunk before, so I'll look forward to rehab....
Getting Your Hands Through the Ball at Impact
Have you ever thought about what your hands and forearms are actually doing at the moment of impact? If not, please give this a try because it's one of the most important parts of the swing. The Simple Golf Swing explains this move, and others, in much more detail.
Try to get into the impact position, like you are about to make solid contact with the ball. Now flip your trailing wrist like you were casting a fishing pole.

So if you are trying to "flip" your hands through the ball at impact, this tip may help you understand the correct way to make this happen.
If you put a wrist watch on you'll be able to visualize the correct moves to make....

Why it that back pain is such a common complaint in golf and amongst golf players on any course?
Does golf back pain have something to do with the game or do most players bring back pains acquired elsewhere into the game?

My Golf Disaster
Although I was never picked for sports teams as a kid, I always thought that golf would be far easier than all the others as it required very little physical exertion in regards to chasing a ball up and down a field for 90 minutes while opponents try to take the legs out from under you.
I mean, how difficult could it be? You stand still, look at the hole at the other end of the green, look at the ball and then hit it as hard as you can with a metal or wooden club. Even better, once you do, you don't have to run as fast as you can to the hole. Instead you take a taxi in the form of a golf cart. How sweet is that!
I had a rude awakening one day when a friend of mine managed to talk me into playing a few rounds down at one of the local courses....
