Synopsis

Golf is an exemplary past time activity for anyone. It provides the exercise which the body needs to help improve flexibility and strength. As we age though, our body loses flexibility and diminishes in stamina no matter how much we try to delay it. Golf can still be a very good sport for the more advanced in age. It’s great because golf can allow more senior golfers to make some adjustments in their game techniques in order to provide power and accuracy to keep up with younger golfers.

The very first culprit that more senior golfers will face in golfing is fatigue. Low energy and tiredness sets in after a long drawn out game. Some adjustments you can make to help you last until the end:

·         Opt to drive around in the golf court instead of walking
·         Drink plenty of fluids
·         Use a longer club to give you more power but with lesser exertion. Practice frequently using a longer club so you can maintain and improve your control.

Another problem that senior golfers face is loss of flexibility. You can improve shoulder flexibility by increasing the speed of your swing by means of shortening it into the shot and balancing it with the swiftness of your strike. By doing this, your shot will still have a good deal of power just like if it were a full swing.

Senior golfers do not need to give up playing golf. With a few adjustments to their techniques they can easily improve their game and still compete with younger opponents.
