Being a senior does not mean that you have to stop doing what you love. In fact it’s the best time to continue doing these things, Golf is no different. It may become more challenging however, but the solution to this is actually in choosing the golf ball that is best suited for you.
Each person has their different skill levels and handicaps and as such must choose base on this. For those with a higher handicap you will most benefit from a pure distance ball that has low compression. Distance and forgiveness is important in choosing.
However, seeing that distance may not be as simple as it seems; you will need a golf ball that maximizes distance for slower swing speeds I have compiled a list that you may find useful when taking to the golf course.
