Golf is often touted as a good way to get some exercise, enjoy a beautiful summer's day and have some fun. But, as with any sport, players need to be careful to avoid injuries, especially back injuries.

Take action:
Avoid back injuries by making sure that the clubs you use are the right size. Take lessons to ensure you have a proper swing. And pull, rather than carry, that heavy bag. Even riding in a cart can cause you pain from the bouncing. Instead, alternate walking and riding between holes.
