Senior Golfers – How to Lower Your Golf Score and Avoid Injuries

If you consider yourself a “senior golfer” and you are looking for tips that will help your golf game, this article is for you.

Senior Golfers: Lower Your Golf Score – Guaranteed!

Remember when you were younger and felt that your body was in better shape that it is now? Perhaps you have some stiffness around your joints. You think you’ve lost some of that endurance that you used to feel when you played golf? Read on.

Importance of warm-up exercises

It’s a fact that seniors are more likely to injure themselves when engaging in physical activity. When we age our muscles lose their elasticity. In a golf swing a large amount of torque is built up when your turn your hips and shoulders while keeping your legs fairly stationary. This stretches a number of muscle groups which, if tight, can pull or tear.

It is really important for senior golfers to loosen up and gently stretch those muscles prior to a round of golf. That way the possibility of injury from pulls and tears is reduced.

Better yet, practice stretching exercises at home in addition to warm ups before your golf game. You’ll be glad you did. You’ll feel better, your golf swing will feel better and you’ll be less prone to injury.

In addition to golf fitness exercises there are other things that seniors can do to lower their golf score.
