Senior Golfers Can Still Play Great Golf. Do You Want To Know How?

If you’re a senior golfer…don’t give up and don’t give into the perception that’s it’s all downhill from here.

No way!

You have a lot of GREAT golf years ahead of you, but you need to take a different approach to your golf improvement.

Tip: A good golf tip is to always keep your focus on the ball. This tip is usually voiced by baseball coaches, but it is no less true on the golf course.

The approach I’m going to talk about will quickly and dramatically transform your game; and you can do this all right in your own home in less than 30 minutes.

No more teasing…this secret approach is your BODY!

Yes…it’s that simple!

Do you ever go on the course and start playing only to feel like you can’t make a full backswing?

Tip: Although it may be hard to believe, you can improve your golf skills by playing miniature golf. If you practice these putting obstacles, you can actually improve your short game tremendously.

How about your distance? Have you lost yards off your drives the last few years? And lastly, how about aches and pains? Does your back, shoulders, hips or even wrists hurt when you play or afterwards?

Then there’s only one choice!

Improve your current physical fitness, specific to your golf game.

You may have heard this before…but have you done anything about it? I know it can be confusing with all the information out there.

The first thing you need to consider is the credibility and experience of these professionals.

Do they know golf? How long have they been working with golfers. Have golfers ‘really’ improved with their programs, etc.?

I’m here to tell you there is hope…and a lot of it.

Tip: Graphite shafts can be for more than your driver. See the new graphite shifts and new technologies that can make for stronger putting.

The first thing you need to do is find out what your limitations are. Is it strength? Is it flexibility? How about the mental? That’s a huge part of the game; but I can tell you, your mind and BODY are linked very intimately.

Tip: You can save money playing your next round of golf by looking at discounts for other local courses. You can search online, call the pro-shop, or sign up to receive offers my mail.

If you feel weak, tired and out of shape…your confidence will be so low it will be a miracle you can even complete a round of golf, let alone get a score you’re proud of.

It’s time to change all that! Right here…right now!

Taking ACTION “right after” reading this article is critical to your golfing future. I don’t believe in thinking about something. Dreaming about something. And not doing anything.

Have a clear, very specific picture in your mind of the kind of golfer you are capable of being and badly want to be.

Tip: Remember that this shot is the only one that matters right now. Don't let the outcome of the previous shot, or any upcoming challenges, influence the way you swing that club.

I can’t tell you exactly what to do in this article. It would be 20 pages of meaty stuff that would get your mind going a hundred miles a minute.

Tip: If possible, watch and golf with stronger players to observe their technique. There is more than one way to benefit from the expertise of a fellow golfer.

But I hope in this article, I’ve motivated you to take a look at your ‘current’ level of fitness (both strength and flexibility) and come up with a plan (either on your own, or with the help of a qualified golf fitness professional) that will transform your game quickly and easily.

Tip: Wiggling your toes can help you figure out how good your posture is before you take a golf swing. You may be leaning in the wrong direction if you can easily move your feet, so don't distance yourself so much from the ball.

It’s not as hard as you think. Just doing a few of the ‘right’ golf stretches and golf strength exercises in your home a couple of times a week will make a world of difference.

Now get away from your computer and do this stretch right away! It will feel so good on your lower back.

It’s my Lying Leg Crossover:

Tip: If you find it hard to shift your weight as you swing and often lean back after you hit the ball, spend time practicing your swing with a baseball-type emphasis. By practicing this method you'll be better able to feel how your body must shift as you swing your club, because you are lifting the front foot a bit during the backswing and then stepping down near the completion of the swing.

* Lie on back with legs extended.
* Raise one leg and bend at knee to 90 degrees in knee and hip.
* Cross that leg over extended leg, while opposite shoulder stays on ground.
* Go until slight pull in butt and lower back.
* Hold and repeat once more.
* Switch legs and do opposite side.

This is just one simple golf exercise of dozens you can do with minimal or no equipment that will quickly and dramatically transform your game for years to come! Happy golfing! And remember…”hit’em LONG & STRAIGHT!
