Want to avoid golf injuries? Start by thinking through your golf swing: 1. Use proper posture. Avoid hunching over the ball, which may contribute to neck and back strain. 2. Stay smooth. The power of a golf swing comes from force transferred smoothly through all the muscle groups, from your ankles to your wrists. 3. Don't overswing. Relax and take a nice, easy swing at the ball.
