Physical inactivity causes over three million deaths worldwide each year. As golf can provide moderate-intensity physical activity – you can reap the rewards and outpace the grim reaper.
A Swedish study found a 40% lower mortality rate amongst golfers, relative to non-golfers. That means a potential extra 5-years of life – regardless of age, or gender!
- Golfers live longer than non-golfers.
- No excuses! Farahmand et al describe this as being regardless of age, gender or income.
- Not only does it potentially add years to your life; it can also add life to your years – with golf improving multiple quality-of-life markers.
