The link between golf and health

How you play golf can point to a variety of health problems:

You ride the golf cart. If a golf cart is essential, you probably need to improve your fitness . . .

Short drives. If your drives aren’t going very far, it’s often a sign of a flexibility problem in your lower body, particularly your hip muscles. . .

Accuracy problems. If the ball is consistently bending to the right or left, you may have posture, strength and flexibility problems in your upper body. . .

Inconsistent swing. If your swing is all over the place, it may be a sign that you lack strength in your “core” muscles. . .

Your game falls apart after a bad shot. How you react to a bogey or a birdie can also be a sign of how you manage stress every day.
