Overview

Golf greats like Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, and Arnold Palmer provide a daily reminder—there is life after 50 on the golf course. In fact, these top pros and thousands of other 50-and-over players are finding that with the right preparation, the golden years can be some of the most successful and enjoyable they've ever had on the greens and fairways.

Golf Past 50 offers practical advice and professional insights for those players who want to continue to enjoy golf and play it successfully throughout their lives. Written by two experts at Senior Golfer magazine, the book discusses golf fundamentals, fitness and flexibility, breakthroughs in equipment technology, and keeping the game fun.

In Golf Past 50, readers will learn how to:

  • - match equipment with their golf goals and playing style,
    - lower scores through proper course management,
    - develop a smoother putting stroke,
    - improve stroke consistency and accuracy,
    - overcome the yips (mental breakdowns during putting), and
    - take a fuller swing to get more distance out of shots.

    Featured in the book are dozens of lessons, tips, and drills from Senior Tour pros like Hale Irwin, Graham Marsh, Jim Colbert, Larry Nelson, and Bob Duval. Through anecdotes and step-by-step instruction, they cover everything from balance and backswing to driving strategy and putting.

    With Golf Past 50, players 50 and over can rest assured that their best golf lies ahead.
