Experts say playing golf could make you live longer.
The findings suggest golfers live longer than non-golfers, enjoying improvements in cholesterol levels, body composition, wellness, self-esteem and self-worth.
The study which was conducted by researchers from the University of Edinburgh reviewed 5,000 studies on golf and wellbeing.
They found golf is likely to improve cardiovascular, respiratory and metabolic health as well as help people suffering from heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer and stroke.
Balance and muscle endurance in older people are also improved by swinging the club and walking the course.
The study also found golfers burn a minimum of 500 calories over 18 holes while covering 4-8 miles. The physical aspects of golf could also help reduce the risk of anxiety, depression and dementia.
