Endorsed by the Senior Golfers of America - "This is a complete informational and motivational book in which seniors learn what Arnold, Jack, Langer, Irwin, Trevino, and many other top golfers have said about golfers over 50."
Review from Brian O'Hare Founder of the Senior Golfers of Australia:
"One of the great things about getting older is that life usually presents you with the ways and means of playing more golf.
"Yes, there may begin to be the odd ache or pain kicking in, the drives for some inextricable reason might start getting a little shorter, and an occasional putt might lip out in a way it would be too terrified to do if you were younger. But overall, the fact you have much more opportunity to get out and get on a golf course should be a fantastic blessing. All you really need is the wisdom to remember to enjoy it.
"I reckon "A Complete Guide For Golfers Over 50" has stuff beneficial to golfers in all those categories, even the pros, many of whom see 50 as an opportunity for a new lease of their golfing lives via their sudden eligibility to the often lucrative senior tours.
"This book has over 300 pages of what would be expected stuff like overall golf advice, golf tips, golf techniques and golf equipment advice - but there's much more.
"The much more includes complete golfing exercise programs, ways to loosen stiff joints, diet information and goal setting. (There's even some bonus pages at the back if you want to get really serious and record your fitness progress).
"But what really sets A Complete Guide For Golfers Over 50 apart is the emphasis on fun.
"A number of Team Golfwell's previous books have been compilations of golf jokes (some of their adult golf jokes aren't for the faint hearted) and it really shows here.
"Not only is there a full chapter of golf jokes, there are jokes interspersed throughout the manual and another section on fun formats and suggestions on keeping up the interest by varying your routines.
"Team Golfwell reckon it is much better to tell a couple of jokes on the tee instead of standing there getting steamed up about the slow group in front.
"There's also some quirky segments like "Things To Do When Playing With An Annoying Player" [doesn't involve any firearms] and "Quick Tips When You Think Your Golf Can't Get Any Worse."
"So you might be getting an idea of where Team Golfwell is coming from. There's a good indication in the choice of emphasis with their first three chapters.
"The first chapter is motivational and explains how numerous studies are showing golfers are overall fitter, have more self esteem and live longer than the average population.
"The second chapter has words of advice and wisdom from many of the golfing greats including Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Greg Norman, Justin Langer, Hale Irwin, Sam Snead and Lee Trevino.
"Chapter three is Laughter Helps You Learn Easier and Benefits Your Health.
"So there you have it: Live longer and healthier, absorb some wisdom (and maybe a game changing insight) from the greats, and laugh more. Much better than getting the shits over a fluffed chip shot.
"I found the second chapter What Great Players in Golf Have Said About Senior Golfers to be particularly valuable (Golfwell personally contacted many of those contributing).
"Amongst some great golf and life advice I particularly liked Lee Trevino's quip: "The older I get, the better I used to be."
