Here are some info:

Golf is a physically demanding, mentally challenging sport that requires technical precision. Just like any other sport, golf has its own set of peculiar pitfalls that can cause injury. This forum addresses the physical problems that can be brought about by a round of golf and discusses how these injuries can be treated and managed.
Registration Fee: $5.00

8.30am Registration

...9.30am Welcome Address
Dr Kelvin Chew

9.35am Common Causes Of Golf Injuries
Dr Kelvin Chew
Consultant
Changi Sports Medicine Centre
Why does shoulder pain or back pain return every time you hit the range? Swing errors and other factors can contribute to the development of your injuries. Find out how changing the error in golf swing is important in treating the injuries.

10.00am Getting Fit For Golf
Mr Darek Lam
Senior Physiotherapist
Changi Sports Medicine Centre
A good pain-free swing requires you to have good posture, flexibility and strength. At times, our body can get weaker and stiffer as we age. This affects performance and may causes injuries. Specific golf rehabilitation and conditioning exercises can help to alleviate the aches and pains, and prolong pain-free golf on the course.

10.30am Understanding The Roots of Swing Mechanic For Long Term Injury Prevention
Mr Lip Ooi
PGA Golf Professional / Consultant
Getting fit for golf alone does not prevent injury as the source of the injury commonly results from poor swing mechanics. Every golf swing is unique. Without a good understanding of how swing biomechanics works, a poor swing repetitions will definitely wear your body out. A golfer needs to combine a golf specific fitness programme with a simple and efficient swing technique to prolong an injury-free golfing lifespan, crucial for a long-term enjoyment of the game.
