From slips, trips and falls to bumps, bruises and strains, when we participate in sporting activities, we do so knowing that there are potential health and safety risks involved when undertaking the pursuit.
That being said, specific sports are known to be associated with typical injuries and/or illnesses, and an awareness of these hazards, such as common golfing accidents, can help sportspeople minimise the risk of sustaining these conditions.
When considering common golfing accidents, it is important to evaluate the type of activity, the equipment involved and the environment in which it is played, all of which contribute to the most common golfing accidents.
Whether you’re an amateur or a pro, there are some typical golfing injuries and illnesses that get the better of any golf enthusiast.
Five of the most common golfing accidents are, but are not limited to:
- Struck by golf ball – head injuries and impact injuries to other areas of the body
- Repetitive strain injuries to shoulder and back
- Slips, trips and falls on uneven terrain
- Illness from exposure to adverse weather conditions
- Golf buggy accidents
