Senior Golf Can Be Your Best Years…Here’s How

Senior golf is accepted by the golfing community as a decline in performance that is inevitable. I’m here to tell you that’s incorrect! In no way does this have to happen.

For the senior golf player it may be more difficult to maintain a high level of performance, but not altogether impossible. You see, your body is the only factor that ultimately speeds up or slows down your performance as you get older.

It’s a fact that physical decline takes place as we age; and for some of us, it’s much quicker.

The senior golfer usually thinks it’s a flexibility issue, and it may very well be. But I’m here to tell you strength declines just as rapidly.

The solution is a golf fitness program geared to your needs and your current level of fitness. Starting at a point that is beyond your limits will result in failure and the never-ending pursuit for the “magic bullet”.

The aspects you should regard are: Strength, flexibility, endurance and even nutrition. These are the components of a total golf performance program, and should all be addressed. If one is left out, it could delay progress indefinitely.

This may sound overwhelming, but it really isn’t. With golf fitness becoming so popular now, there are books, videos, and even golf fitness trainers at your disposal.

Your first step is to get an evaluation to determine your “current level” of golf fitness. This is critical to your success. Realizing your starting point, will put you on the path to a MUCH improved golf game.

Once you’ve exposed your limitations, you can now get on a program to improve them and stop wasting valuable time on things that don’t. Even taking a golf lesson should be put off until you have improved your fitness specific to golf.

I have seen and heard of so many golfers (mostly senior golfers) who take a lesson, only to be more confused and frustrated because they can’t apply what they learned. This doesn’t have to be. Work on your BODY first, and your swing will improve automatically.

Doesn’t that make sense?

Now you may be thinking to do this new and exciting golf fitness program, you’ll need a gym.


All you need is a stability ball, hand weights, and some exercise tubing and you’ve got your new golf fitness home gym for under $50. No fancy, expensive equipment required.

This should be a relief to hear you can do this in the convenience of your home, with minimal equipment. This not only saves you time but money. The only thing left now, is to do it!

Don’t put if off for another second!

Procrastination will get you nowhere quickly. This IS the missing link to your best game ever!
