Several months back, I was playing golf with my friends, and one in particular beat me pretty soundly. Now, my buddy is a good golfer – and it’s not like this was the first time I lost to him – so I put it down to just having a bad day on the links. But when I went to practice recently, I noticed my back ached after a bunch of swings. I’ve had my share of exercise and sports related aches and pains, but when I hit 50 I knew I needed something to helps with the wear and tear. The next few games also saw me worried about my back, driving shorter and missing putts that I usually sink. It became obvious that I couldn’t just chalk it up to a string of bad days. I needed to be proactive, up my joint health, reduce the stiffness, promote my focus and set myself up for better golf in my future.
