  2. You’ll live longer: Really they do, 5 years on average, according to a Swedish study.
  3. You’ll Stay Healthier: Golf help keeps you physically active, and if you walk, a round of golf sure helps you keep the weight off with an average of 1525 calories burned in 18 holes walking and 825 in a golf cart.
