But there is still the opportunity to improve your game through practice and finding the right equipment to work with. Age-related changes affecting your driving distance can be slowed down. Take a look at some of the ways senior golfers can keep their edge!

Much is new and good. I’m busy learning. I’ve been competitive and often elite since 1953. I’ve raced on six continents, set masters records at the Boston and New York City marathons, run a 5K in 14:12, and written seven books about running, yet this obscure little 3,000-meter event on a windy evening was another learning curve. By racing after 80, I’m still learning about the sport, about aging, about today’s society, about myself.

@shuropody recently shared a great list on their website of outstanding achievements by those over 50. It isn't uncommon to hear, "you are too old for that,".... Says WHO? If JRR Tolkien had listened, he never would have published The Lord of the Rings at 62yrs old. And John Pemberton wouldn't have invented Coca-Cola at 55. So this weekend - don't let age hold you back. Get out and do something that you are "Too Old" to do. Please share it with us! We would love to celebrate with you!
