Live Longer By Playing Golf

SpockLive long and prosper is more than Mr. Spock’s catchphrase – it’s the goal of most people in the world. So how do you live to a ripe old age? Scientists started asking the elderly what they thought the key to longevity was.

The answer? Golf.

Golfing oldtimersJapanese inventor Momofuku Ando credited eating ramen noodles and golfing every day with his long life. He’s not alone. Alice O’Donovan, a 100-year-old Irish woman, recently told The Irish Times that she credited golfing and drinking lots of beer.

golfing romanceWhy is golfing frequently linked to successful aging? The key may be in the game itself. Golf offers all ages a low impact workout with plenty of walking. It also helps you keep your mind active, as you try to figure out your next shot. Many doctors are now recommending golf as an excellent workout option for all ages.

So if you want to live to the triple digits, it might be time to work on your golf swing.

Commune with Cowboys

cowboyWhen you think of the Southwest, golf may not be the first thing that comes to mind. While we tell you frequently about the year-round golfing opportunities on beautiful courses, when most people think of the Southwest, they think of cowboys.

We’re the land of the Earps and Tombstone. This February, remind yourself of the storied history of the west and the cowboys who shaped it at the Tucson Rodeo, running February 21 through March 1. Called La Fiesta de los Vaqueros, or the Celebration of the Cowboys, this event features mutton busting, steer wrestling, barrel racing, roping and riding. Every night, kick up your heels with the cowboys at a barn dance.
