Golf injuries are very real and can follow people around for a long time. If you suddenly jump into the game, take a buddy trip, or trade in your daily work commute for a drive around the links, you may find yourself playing a lot of golf in short period of time. If your body is stiff or your muscles have not experienced this level of activity in a while, bad things can happen if you don't pay attention to your body. Sorry. We didn't make up the law of human biomechanics. We just have play by them.
