Top medical specialists from all over the U.S. look at the most common ailments that affect one's golf game--and explain how older players can overcome these health issues to play better, pain-free golf.

Of the 36.7 million golfers in the United States, about 30 percent--or 11 million--are over the age of 50. Healthier, more physically fit, and more active than ever before, men and women in this age group have an excellent opportunity to devote their post-50 years to improving their golf games. This outstanding manual--the only book currently available that specifically addresses the health concerns of the older golfer--explains simple precautions to take to avoid preventable injuries, gives commonsense nutrition and wellness tips, and provides expert medical advice on how to cope with common maladies in a way that will allow the quickest possible return to the golf course.

Whether it is advice on playing with chronic shoulder pain or after a hip replacement, or the best ways to protect your skin from the sun, Golf After 50 - Edited by Terry W. Hensle, MD with David Chmiel - delivers the sage advice that over-50 golfers need. Written in question-and-answer format, drawing on the technical know-how of orthopedists, cardiologists, endocrinologists, nutritionists, and sports medicine doctors--all self-confessed golf nuts--Golf After 50 will quickly become a staple for this largest and most affluent segment of the golfing market.
