Are older golfers difficult to beat?

2012-11-16 00:00

THEY say that experience comes with age. That may be so, but being experienced doesn’t necessarily mean that it makes one any better.

The most important aspect of matchplay is being in control of one’s nerves and those anxious moments. These occur most often on the greens and more specifically to holing those “clutch” putts. The old golfer has missed thousands of clutch putts and probably owned lots of putters during his golfing life, especially if he or she hasn’t been particularly good with the flat stick. Generally, the younger golfer has a better chance of holding his nerve and is more likely to knock in those two-metre putts. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
