Golf Medicine e-Edition

Welcome to this special BJSM e-Edition on Golf Medicine.

Over the last few decades golf medicine has progressed to support professional golfers’ physical and mental health as well as promoting physical activity to the general population. Golf is a fantastic sport that can be played at any age and the handicapping system allows players of mixed abilities to play, compete and socialise together.

Like many sports golf faced some big challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, with a series of risk reduction measures and the recognition of its significant health benefits both amateur and professional golf were able to resume safely.

We are massively grateful to all of the collaborators on this project. A huge thank you to Dr Roger Hawkes (President of BASEM), Dr Andrew Murray (Chief Medical Officer for the European Tour), and Dr Steffan Griffin (BJSM Deputy Editor) for supporting this project as well as Dr Danny Glover and Jimmy Walsh for creating and producing many of the infographics and podcasts included.
