7 Reasons to Play Golf ...


It’s spring, and that means it’s time for golf! My clubs have been sitting in storage since October, and it’s time to work on my poor pathetic swing. I’m not good at golf, not by any stretch of the imagination, but I love it, and here’s why. Here are 7 reasons to play golf, if you haven’t before.

1. The Exercise

Finally, after years of rampant speculation and little research to back me up, someone’s done a study to see exactly how many calories you can burn playing a round of golf. According to a study done in 2008, by Neil Wolkodoff, the director of the Rose Center for Health and Sports Sciences in Denver, playing 9 holes of golf, you will burn about 700 calories. Think about it — you’re walking, toting a golf bag, and swinging away. That’s exercise, and it’s great for your heart and soul!
