Playing Golf Can Benefit Your Health!

Golf is an outdoor sport that can get you in the sunshine, and absorbing vitamin D! Vitamin D can help to improve your health in various ways, (such as caring for your bones, and muscles) and being out in the fresh air can boost your mood.

 

People who are outdoors often, may find they are at less risk of long-term health problems, such as blood pressure, digestion problems, and obesity.

 

Golf can be a sport that is enjoyed alone if you wish, as well as in teams. When you play by yourself you don’t need to keep score, and can keep to your own pace. But if you enjoy a little competition, then a challenge with other players can be an exciting opportunity, as well as raising your confidence and self-esteem in a social sense.

 

Golf can be beneficial to your mental health too. A game can help to reduce stress, and release endorphins. It can also help teach precision, and improve your focus. Muscle memory will be improved, as well as your hand-eye coordination. So, as well as a health benefit, golf can also be great for strengthening your skills.

Bubba does it again

Bubba Watson claimed his second Masters Title in three years at Augusta, with an easy win after he let a three-shot overnight lead go. When Jordan Spieth holed out from the bunker at the front of the 4th green on Sunday afternoon, Watson trailed the 20-year-old by two, however Watson matched Spieth’s birdie two and moments later, the battle between the previous major winner and fresh-faced pretender had commenced. This match continued until the crucial period when Spieth stumbled from eight to five under from the 8th tee to the 12th green, when Spieth left his tee shot at the 12th short and in Rae’s Creek, Watson had reclaimed the initiative Watson sat at seven under by the end of the same stretch, which he added to with a birdie on a 13th hole where a combination of power and skill. By the end Watson confirmed his total of 280, which was eight under par and three better than both Spieth and Sweden’s Jonas Blixt. A three-stroke lead on the 72nd tee was comfortable enough, even for this jittery and emotional character. Watson still took three-wood, just to be safe.
