Does your golf game get worse as you grow older?

I’ve just turned fifty, and didn’t feel any change at all, except for the fact that i started wandering about getting old. Physically i’m very fit, i jog and exercise regularly, and playing golf also helps. The thought that kept bothering me is that after turning old, my golf game, the one skill that i’ve tried to perfect, will eventually deteriorate. Getting best seniors golf clubs might slow down the process, but eventually my golf swing will become much worse than it is now. Of course i’m aware that it’s not going to happen for 10 to 15 years, but i’m still worried. I guess all i can do is to keep exercising and eating healthy, so my body can keep up with my mind’s ambitions. You can also see traces of aging in successful golfers’ careers. Golf isn’t as active compared to basketball or football, but turns out, aging takes toll on your performance even in your forties. According to this one research i found, golfers usually start out not-so-well in their twenties, reach their peak performance in their thirties and eventually start to slowly decline which doesn’t stop.

But how bad exactly does it get? The research cited performance results for golfers of all age, so we can easily compare each age range to the other. The change from 35-39 to 40-44 wasn’t that bad, it seems like golfers only experienced slight decline in their performance. But the older they got, physical advantages of younger golfers got more and more obvious. Of course, regularly exercising and good eating habits can slow down the aging process and help you effectively compete with young golfers, but even that doesn’t work once you are in your sixties. Strength of your arms and core just isn’t the same, and it affects your swing speed greatly.

Of course not everyone is built the same way. There are exceptions to the rule, the golfers whose genetics make them capable of performing even when they reach senior years. One of the best example of such golfers is Vijay Singh. He peaked and had his best years when he was in his early forties. So some of you readers might be fine and might even flourish in your forties. But again, genetics won’t do much alone. Aging process will eventually decrease your results, it’s just matter of time. Most people want it to be slower of course. While others are just not that competitive about scores and like to play golf just for the fun of it. Which is the approach that makes more sense, but i’m just too competitive to make sense. If you aren’t like me, it’s definitely smarter to not stress over it and play golf for pleasure.  Anyway, that’s basically what i learned from my quick golf research, and now that i’m done sharing it with you, bye.

How to choose perfect bra

 

Most lingerie manufacturers these days inventory band sizes from 32 onwards. To the client that suggests that 32 has to be the lowest possible band size, which will match only the smallest/thinnest women. The issue is that a 32 ring size is truly nearer to the center rather than the lesser end of this range, and it certainly does not correspond to a XS in clothing dimensions. If you’re slim or have a narrow spine you will need as low as a 28 or maybe a 26 ring size to safeguard your breasts are correctly supported. Because that’s the trouble if you wear ring sizes which are too large: The bra can’t perform its job.

Bras are made to disperse the vast majority of the weight over the back. But to be in a position to do so, your bra needs to be tight enough so that you could securely hold onto your ribcage. If your group is just kind of drifting along with your own skin, the whole weight of your breasts will be dangling from the bra straps and then place on your own shoulders. And that is a surefire recipe for a good deal of neck, back and shoulder pain.

So why is it that brands stock such a little selection of ring sizes if that means many of us will have to get non-functioning bras?

Because of an conservative bra measurement technique (known as “Plus 4”) and basic supply and demand. In the 1950s bras were created from non-stretchy materials like silk and satin and so clients were advised to add 4 inches to the circumference of the backs to receive their band measurement. Nowadays, many bras are made from conductive material which has excellent flexibility so it makes little sense to purchase a bra that is larger than your spine.

Should you suspect you might not be sporting the appropriate size either, there is yet another notion that you need to know about: Doctor dimensions. Fundamentally: As you move down a band size, you go up a cup size, and vice versa. Have a look at this chart for a comprehensive list (all sizes in a row are sister dimensions and will have precisely the same cup volume).

Recognizing how sister sizes work will make it a lot easier to hone in on your right size as you attempt on various bras. You might like find that a 34B has only the perfect quantity of volume from the cups but is still a bit too loose in the band. In that situation you know you will need the sister size using a smaller band, i.e. 32C. On the flip side, if you locate the ring is far too tight, then you could go another direction: up a band size, but down a cup size to receive exactly the identical volume, and wind up with 36A.
