Can Golf Prolong Lives?

Couple Golfing A new study, which was conducted by the Swedish Medical University Karolinska Institutet, has found that golf is not only a great hobby for men and women today but possibly a form of activity that can prolong your life expectancy. Within this study, the research found that men and women who golf have a 40% lower death rate than men and women of the same age and health who do not golf. This equals out to a 5 year life increase. Hearing that exercise is good for your health isn’t new news. However this is one of the first studies to target a particular activity and its unique benefits.

This study was based on research and collective data from 300,000 Swedish golfers. There are several different aspects of the game of golf, which can be seen as beneficial for your health in more ways than one. If you are an avid golfer then you may already know that when you head out for a round of golf you are gone for at least 4 hours. Although you do have the option to rent a golf cart, choosing to walk the course is one of the reasons this sport is so beneficial for your health. Also, the fact that you are able to play golf into your elderly years is definitely a bonus. As we get older there are few activities we can take part in and the ability to golf is something that is never lost.

The researchers from within this study have stated that the lower the handicap you have the better you can increase your life expectancy. Of course, if you have a low handicap it is because you play on a regular and constant basis, which is great for your health no matter how young or old you may be. Many of the younger generations are beginning to take part in the game of golf and starting out at a young age is a great way to get a handle on the game for your elderly years. In the past, the game of golf was considered to be only for the elderly but today more and more people are beginning to enjoy this relaxing form of exercise.

The benefits of regular and moderate exercise are limitless today and now with this study proving the power of golf, many people can enhance their health and enjoy the fun of the sport. With the summer months practically here, men and women are searching for activities they can take part in to help maintain their weight and promote a healthy body and golf is a great place to start. It can be a frustrating game for those who are new to it but as you begin to get the hang of it, you will want to walk the course each and every day. It is nothing less than a full body workout with the walking from each green as well as the swinging, which works all your upper body muscles. Never underestimate what moderate exercise can do for you.

In the past the majority of people believed that in order to remain healthy and lose weight you have to perform and take part in intense workouts, which left you breathless and gasping for air. This is not true. Simply walking through the golf course and enjoying the sport has been proved to be enough to prolong your life by 5 years for most men and women within the study. Get rid of these old thoughts and step into the present where studies and researchers are proving what activities are best for you and your overall health.
