 Re: Seniors Only: Have you lost lung power?

Hank, I'm about the same as Hans. Lung capacity has decreased from 130 to about 105 now (I'm 68). These tests done both sitting and standing on two different pieces of equipment. Essentially no difference in all test. Incidentally, I never smoked.

What I have to do now to play the longer passages is remember to take a really good big breath. If I take one of those puny, suck in in the corners of the mouth I don't make it. I have found one thing, the more I play the better my capacity seems to get.

Hit them long and straight. I wish I could say I hit them as far as I used to, but I can't. It just seems that way because I don't see as well as I used to. Getting old can be irritating at times. If you make it to Pinehurst sometimes, let me know. Maybe we can play a round on #2. It "ate me up" on Friday.
