Wearing the golf bag affects breathing and circulation
Dr. Med. Martin Lauterburg, specialist in orthopedicsurgery, draws attention to the fact that “50 percent of golf injuries affect the spine area” in Golfport magazine Drive. In addition to the stress of the pure golf swing, which “enormous turning, pressure and shear forces can be six to eight times the body weight”, he recommends not to wear the golf bag.
Lauterburg is particularly interested in children in the growing age. The specialist points to studies that indicated that carrying a bag weighing more than ten percent of the body weight would adversely affect respiration, the cardiovascular system, and body posture.
Tips for the golf bag to wear
For these reasons, Dr. Med. Lauterburg advocates the use of a trolley – electrically or not. If, however, players who do not want to do without the worn bag, be sure that the weight is below the 10 percent mark, the carrying strap is symmetrical, and a belt at waist or hip height additionally relieves the spine. Older golfers already suggest Lauterburg to use an electrically operated trolley for their bag. This suggests fatigue symptoms and is therefore not unfavourable for the score.
The use of a carrybag should be restricted to the winter season, to holidays, or to fast evening rounds. In addition, a flat design should be taken to ensure that the weight is close to the center of gravity and the load to be carried is kept as small as possible. The omission of some bats during the leisure round can relieve the body in addition.
In general, if the heart palpation is disturbing the putting or the tee-off after the last climb with carrybag, a trolley is advisable. Especially in tournament rounds, if every hit counts.
