Golf Australia Express : October 2014
A COUPLE of months back, a group of us were debating which sport we’d like our kids to play if they could be elite stars. Golf, in most cases, was the clear favourite. The money’s good, the lifestyle seems hard to beat and, best of all, good players can graft out careers of 30 years or more and still have most parts of their body functioning properly when they reach old age. Then Matt Kuchar takes a trip to the shops and blows that notion right out of the water. Kuchar wrenched his back in early August and missed the PGA Championship. In the weeks afterwards, word filtered out that he wasn’t on the driving range or bending down to pick a ball out of the cup on the practice green when he did the damage. He was rushing from toy store to toy store, trying to find a Slip’N Slide to buy for his kids. He tweaked his back in the process and it worsened as he sat in gridlocked traffic on the way home, eventually forcing him out of the year’s final major. It turns out golfers (and golf in general) have a penchant for bizarre and unlikely injuries. This month we’ve assembled a few of the more eye- opening incidents from on and off the course. Bear them in mind when you’re plotting your child’s path to sporting glory. OTG CLICK FINGERS BELOW TO REVEAL OUR LIST OF BIZARRE GOLF INJURIES
