2nd International Congress on Golf + Health Open For Registrations2 min read


Posted on: 14th Jun 2022

The 2nd International Conference on Golf and Health follows on from the successful 2018 event, which had input from World Health Organisation, National Government, International Governing Bodies, and world leading research regarding all aspects of golf, health and performance.

The event is a great way for any PGA representative or PGA Member that is interested in the area of golf and health and the wide array of benefits that it can bring, along with medical/scientific/research professionals, surgeons, doctors, sports medicine physicians, physiotherapists, sports scientists, researchers and students interested in golf, health and performance.

The 2022 edition will take place in Scotland, the Home of Golf, with the kind support of our platinum sponsor, Stryker, at a time where golf has been highlighted to have a wide range of health benefits. Major golf events will be held in Scotland in 2022 including The 150th Open, The AIG Women’s Open and many others. International consensus has recently been published on illness and injury in golf and there will be satellite events at each of the major Scottish tournaments this year highlighting the health benefits of golf.
