Golfer's elbow is pain and inflammation on the inner side of the elbow. To keep your game on course, think prevention: 1. Strengthen your forearm muscles. Use light weights or squeeze a tennis ball. 2. Do some dynamic stretching (half swings) before you golf. Walk or jog for a few minutes to warm up your muscles first. 3. Fix your form. Ask an instructor to check your grip and swing technique. 4. Know when to rest. At the first sign of elbow pain, take a break.
