You can see the numbers mathspigs. Why don’t they feel right. The idea of kids playing golf in helmets seems crazy.
Firstly, kids already wear helmets riding bikes. 17 may be an improvement from pre:helmet days. But we do not

Now to golf. OK mathspig. Calculate how many injuries occurred other than golf and cycling.
Where may these injuries have occurred? So list some places you think kids should wear helmets to
prevent such accidents in the future?
