Golf for the senior player

Clin Sports Med. 1996 Jan;15(1):163-78.


In no other sport does the senior player enjoy as much opportunity to participate and compete at various skill levels as in golf. No other sport encourages as much mixed competition. Because of their spending power, equipment and travel packages are often geared to the senior player. Advancing medical technology and specialized instruction effectively combat the physical effects of aging. These and other factors will ensure the continued popularity of the game of golf.
