    I posted this in the Golf Talk section but thought I might get more response here. I’m 65 years old with a beat up body. Lower back issues, 2 knee surgeries, torn rotator cuff and had a right ankle fusion about 5 years. Was a 14 handicap in my early 40’s but have ballooned to a 27. I used to be athletic (played a lot of baseball) but those days are long gone. I’ve taken 10 years of lessons from a few different pros with the only result being getting consistently worse. I am so frustrated but absolutely love the game so I’m trying to right the ship. Finally decided that maybe I can’t make the swing like they want me to because of injuries, age and flexibility issues. I’ve recently researched making some adjustments for more of a senior swing such as moving the back foot back a little bit and flaring that foot out to allow more of a turn. I’m sure there are some older golfers on here who have gone through similar swings. Any suggestions, tips or guides would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
