181GolfGolf is a club and ball sport in which players use various clubs to hit balls into a series of holes from a range of 80 to 600 yards on a course in as few strokes as possible.

I had always heard golf was number 1 based on a few factors. There are more people golfing at any one time than playing almost any sport. On any given day there are over 100 people playing on every available course, that's thousands in any one city from dawn until dusk. Average age of golfer is higher than any other sport resulting in back/neck/shoulder and other injuries. Also alcohol is more present in golf than any other sport leading to additional golf-cart related stupidity.

There is a certain element of risk in all sports, golf however factors old people, it has lightening strikes, heart attacks you name it it has it. Evidence shows more men die on a golf course then participating in any other event

There has been some severe injuries with golf, with the golf club or golf ball. You just have to be a smart golfer, oh and my brother fell off the golf cart once - Unknownguy

I got in the head by a club 6 years ago; age 4

When you walk a monkey can jump on you and throw bananas at you and when they are unpeeled!

Once I stubbed my toe while I was walking

I was walking once and I ran into a tree that happened to be covered in poison ivy. Five years later, I still have nightmares about it.

Extremely dangerous I tried it once and broke both legs never will try again.
