       When a pandemic gives you lemons, at least try to make lemonade. That is what Brad Chambers and I have done, the lemonade being a new book for senior golfers who want to play their best and have a lot of fun doing it. The book, published first in an Amazon Kindle version, is called “Playing Through Your Golden Years: A Senior’s Golfing Guide,” and it covers the wide range of topics uniquely relevant to golfers over the age of 60 (with some helpful hints as well for those not quite there yet).

        Brad is the author of “Think Better, Play Smarter and Manage Your Way to Better Golf Scores” and publisher of the blog site ShootingYourAge.com.  My first book, published in late 2020, is “Glorious Back Nine: How to Find Your Dream Golf Home.” Both are available for purchase at Amazon.com in paperback and ePub versions.
        Here is what senior golfers have said about “Playing Through Your Golden Years”:        
        You guys have nailed it! No heavy lifting, no sweaty gym sessions, no expensive training aids required. And, refreshingly, you understand and include women in your model. While you pitch to Boomers, your advice and guidance will work just as well for those of us in the Silent Generation who want to enjoy the game right up to our last breath, hopefully on the 18th hole -- with the ball in the cup! – Beth Bethel, former editor of Foregals website.
        Playing Through Your Golden Years provides all the options senior golfers need to play their best golf and have a helluva lot of fun doing it. -- Ken Green, former PGA Tour player and Ryder Cup participant.        
        This book…not only discusses golf courses, clubs, culture and climate but also the aspects of living, such as consideration of social interaction, future medical needs and to be mindful…that we must be prepared for the unexpected in order to enjoy our futures with confidence. – William Watson, MD, resident of Haig Point, Daufuskie Island, SC       
        “Playing Through Your Golden Years” is now available on pre-order at Amazon.com for just $3.99, about one-third the cost of a premium sleeve of golf balls (which you will eventually lose or wear out anyway). The book’s official publication date is May 15, and anyone who pre-orders it will receive the Amazon Kindle version on that date. (Note: The Kindle app can be downloaded for free and provides a few nice reader options on size of typeface and other extras.)
        Order your copy today at Amazon.com. Other electronic versions of the book will be available at BarnesandNoble.com and Apple Books online later this month.
