For professional golfers, multiple PGA championships can really take their toll on the body. Golf is certainly not a considered a contact sport, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t strenuous. Without the risk of collision injuries, professional golfers are able to keep driving toward their goals even as they continue to advance in age, if not for the aches and pains.
Swinging a club for a living means repeatedly working only one side of the body, leaving these athletes with a feeling of muscle imbalance that can lead to injury.
For World Champion golfer Tiger Woods, his career ambitions at age 38 are as real now as they were 20 years ago. Today, he still puts in a good deal of time firing golf balls at the golf course practice netting in order to keep a competitive edge on the course with the rest of them. But at this point in his career, even this golf legend is struggling increasingly with those limiting aches and pains that come with age.
