Golf is a game that just about anyone can learn and become proficient at, and unlike some sports, you can play golf in your later years. And there are a lot of people who enjoy playing golf well into their 70’s and 80’s.
It’s not a game that requires a lot of strength, but it does require a bit of flexibility and strength in your core. Having said that, there is not much else to consider. So it’s no wonder golf is being picked up for the first time and played by senior players.
I guess one thing that most senior players recognize is that fact that they aren’t as strong as they used to be, or as nimble as they used to be in their twenties and as such your swing could be a little off, or your precision could be not as accurate.
So with these factors in mind, all of the top golfing brands have created golf clubs that cater specifically towards the older market. The clubs designed for senior players i to allow them to benefit from a more flexible shaft which will allow them to get greater velocity when striking the ball and a wide face, so that they don’t have to hit the ball square.
These types of golf clubs allow the ball to go higher and further, without necessarily having the muscle power to be able to do it.
Golf has definitely come a long way, but because you’re an older player does mean that you have to be at a disadvantage.
