I have the solution for you.
Don’t let those confidence sapping aches and pains that have started to affect the quality of your game make you think you may have to quit and find something else to enjoy. You most certainly don’t want your golf handicap be your body and we can completely understand that. That’s why the Age Defying Golf Program was developed which will not only help you through the pain of arthritis or from surgery, it will actually improve your golf game!
Who Is Dr Ryan York and Dr Chad Edwards
Developed by Dr. Ryan York and Dr. Chad Edwards, Age Defying Golf will get you to do more than just putting around in your 50’s and 60’s and up to driving the long ball well into your 70’s and 80’s! Both doctors are from Washington State and have used their skills to assist older golfers with their game and whatever the condition was that hampered it. Whether your game has been affected by surgery, arthritis or an injury, Age Defying Golf will show you how to stay active without quitting the game you love.
Dr. Ryan York DPT CGS
Doctor of Physical Therapy, Certified Golf Performance Specialist
Co-creator/Founder Age Defying Golf
Older golfers take note: Dr. York devised his program after spending time as an orthopedic physical therapist in a senior golf resort community. While working with golfers of all ages he noticed golfers aged 50 and older had a very different biomechanical pattern.
Ryan has a BS degree in Exercise Science and a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Tacoma, Washington’s University of Puget Sound. Add to this his advanced training in spinal biomechanics, human movement science from the Gray Institute and advanced Golf Performance Specialist training and certification and you begin to see that he knows what he’s talking about.
After analyzing hundreds of golfers in the over 40 age bracket and collaborating with colleagues and PGA teaching professionals, he founded Age Defying Golf. The system focuses on returning flexibility and strength to the mechanics of the golf swing as well as corrective muscle memory science and speed training to not only improve performance for older golfers between the ages of 50 and 75, but it has become the most effective training program for senior golfers allowing them to outplay much younger players.

What Does The Age Defying Golf Website Cover?
How Can It Help Me?
When you visit our website you’ll discover there are solutions to the problems faced by older golfers. All of the elements that combine to become the complete Age Defying Golf Program come from extensive studies conducted by the two doctors who developed it. For example, the most interesting data collected involve details on how age, stiffness, injury, arthritis and surgery all had a different kind of impact on the way a senior played golf.
If you are a golfer of advanced age you’ll be able to understand when we say the flexibility you once had is not the same as the level of flexibility you have now. Even if you do not suffer from pain of any kind, your game has changed simply because you have aged.
While that sounds logically possible, the proof came from years working as an orthopedic physical therapist in a senior golf resort community. Add to that working with hundreds of other golfers and a biomechanical pattern shift began to emerge to Dr Ryan York. It is with this information, that much of the Age Defying Golf Program was built around.
Golfing is a pleasurable sport and past time. For many older golfers it is a key element in their social network as it keeps connections and helps to form additional new social connections, vital to health and wellbeing as we age. When those connections become limited because of pain or disease-related issues, it becomes frustrating. Not only because it affects your game, but it can also have a huge impact on your ability to stay fit, active and healthy, not to mention how it can hamper social activities. These are all reasons why the Age Defying Golf Program was developed.
This website is designed for older golfers just like you.
First, it’s easy to get around to see all the information there is here.
Second, it has a lot of free information that you can access to help with your game.
