Golfers: Keep Track of Those Around You

golf-friends-fb1-shutterstock_199702901

Golf is a safe sport – as long as a few basic, common-sense rules of safety are followed. When those rules are ignored, injuries can occur. Golf involves the swinging of metal clubs, which propel golf balls at high speeds. If you’re in the way of either the clubs or the balls, you’re in danger. You could be placing yourself in danger, too, if you do not respect the power of the sun, the danger of lightning, or your body’s need for the right kind of fluids on warm days. Here are some guidelines that can help ensure your safety, and that of those around you on the golf course (note – when finished here, be sure to check out our Golf Etiquette section for additional suggestions).

Keep Track of Those Around You

When a golf club is in your hands and you are preparing to swing, it is your responsibility to make sure your playing partners are a safe distance away from you. It’s not too difficult, after all, to keep track of where everyone is when your group is likely just four or fewer golfers. Never swing a golf club when another golfer is close to you. That’s the most important thing to remember. And be a little extra cautious on practice swings, when it’s easy for golfers to let their guard down. Extra vigilance is also needed when younger golfers are part of your group. Also, look ahead of you, and to the left and right of the area where you are aiming your shot. Don’t hit your ball until you are confident that any golfers up ahead are out of your range.

The above is an excerpt from the article, “Simple Safety Guidelines for Golfers.” For more information, please visitwww.about.com
