IGF Medical Commission

The IGF, through the IGF Medical Commission, is committed to ensure that the sport of golf is practised without danger to the health of the athletes and with respect for fair play and sports ethics. To that end, it fosters those measures necessary to protect the health of participants and to minimise the risks of physical injury and psychological harm. It also promotes measures that will protect athletes in their relationships with physicians and other health care providers. The Commission has responsibility for athlete’s health in accordance with the IGF’s obligations to the Olympic Movement Medical Code. The duties of the IGF Medical Commission fall into the broad areas of healthcare, education and research.
