Ive been getting splitting headaches at the driving range recently. I dont really get headaches when playing a round or really doing anything else. Has anyone else experienced this? I think I might be swinging a little hard. Not sure if its a mental thing, because it happens mostly when I hit on mats.

Could be repetition, could be mental, I could have a brain tumor, who knows. Just wondering if anyone else gets headaches after repeatedly hitting over and over.

Naw, it could be the heat though. Not really sure. It's just wierd that it mostly happens on mats and never when I am actually golfing. Only at the range.

All joking aside, it could be your swing.  If you're coming down on the ball and hitting off the mats the recoil might be effecting you.  I'm just speculating though since I've never heard of anyone having this issue before.

you could be stressing out to much. I have a tedency to get frustrated after hitting to many uglies. Find the 1 shot that youhit well and relax. Enjoy the moment and see if that makes a difference.

I think I am getting a lot of recoil. I want too frustrated today. Only frustration came from having the headache. Who knows. I would think is a health problem if it happened any where else besides the driving range. I am very active though, so it's weird that I don't get it when playing hockey or working out putting stress on my body.

I see a lot of people at the range in such a hurry.. I take time to relax a bit, even if its a few more seconds between hits to compose myself and try to think of in-game situations.. blah blah.

There are times when I've found myself clenching my jaw and had to take a moment to relax at the range.

If I still can't relax, I take off my pants.

I get headaches when I don't stay hydrated or haven't eaten.  I'm in SoCal near the Ocean and it can get into the mid 80's - and the hottest I've seen is low 90's.  But even at those temperatures, when your out banging balls with no shade or cover... It can take a tool on you.

Make sure you drink plenty of fluids and eat something.  I usually try and take a bottled water - and sometimes an energy drink + protein bar to snack on when I'm at the range here and it is blazing.

I realized that I hasn't drank any soda today. I normally drink Pepsi as soon as I get to work (not a coffee person) and I get headache when I don't drink caffeine. Who knows, I probably have a tumor lol

You may have a tumor but you also have a caffeine addiction!  Not as hard to break as nicotine but still a painful 3-4 days if you do try to go without it.

Are you staying hydrated? Are you hitting without taking breaks? Do you go at a time that it's hot and not drinking? Are you drinking the wrong thing? Did you drink alcohol the day before and not get rehydrated?
