Age and the rigours of life affect us all differently Hack. My brother also had to pull the pin on golf due to ongoing back issues and an arthritic hip. The hip in the end was the issue that stopped him playing altogether.
Feel free to join the peanut gallery with Max and let the rest of us know how to enjoy the game and LoL at the insanity of the usual threads.

Cheers Mick.

Funny thing is, I currently have the shorties, twitchiest most radical surfboard I've EVER owned or ridden and am not only really enjoying it, but have also been feeling fitter and healthier than I have in a long time.

The twisting and torque of the golf swing is just too much for my lower back. Yet, seems ok for surfing.

I'm the 47yo grommet in the surf lately. But, after golf yesterday and how I feel today, I see, get, the golfing gods message loud n clear. Unfortunately.

We have to learn to listen to our body sometimes and it happens that your body and golf don’t mix on a regular basis so I guess the occasional game is all that suits you. At least with surfing you know your physical and mental health are being taken care of in a positive way and that’s all that matters.

Maybe? It's not over yet ... 😲

I emailed my golf coach, Chris, with my lower back golf and overall health linkage synopsis. We had a chat yesterday.

Turns out we have a TPI certified physiotherapy near the club. So, we're going to have a chat with her, do some assessments and maybe, just maybe, get some golf strength and conditioning into my body to not only help my back, but improve overall my golfing fitness etc.

The interlinking of surf muscles n fitness vs golf strength n flexibility has me a little concerned. But, who knows, it might be complementary.

Watch this space!

That’s really sad news. Sounds like it was coming together score wise too. Backs are a pain. Best thing generally is to keep active. Stretching Pilates yoga physio and deep tissue massage.

Yep.

Got a foam roll from my osteopath, and a spiked ball thingy.

Bit like your golf, golf practice... I just need to make more of an effort to use them.

That said. I'm quietly excited about doing the TPI assessment. Just gotta get over the current weakness... It's slowly improving. I'd have maybe tested it on a longboard today but no chance in the current surf conditions.

I know my back recovery accelerates once I back surging. Even if only on a longboard.
