Spare part surgery leads to all the other trouble.
Bird watching, either feathered or the other sort is far safer.
I suspect that you are not being entirely serious. I have never played golf but I know a lot of people who do well into their 70s and it just seems to keep them fit. I have had two hip replacements and no problems afterwards except occasionally a trapped nerve which may or may not having anything to do with it. I walk about 3/4 miles at least on alternate days and do a lot of gardening and am just finishing redecorating my study so I think I am fairly active at 77.
Snorvey inspired me to try to lose some weight and by simply cutting back on food intake I have lost 7 lbs from where it needs to go, my middle. Also been in the garden a lot in the last few weeks, working I may say not sunbathing. I need to lose about another 7 lbs and I will be back to where I was 20 years ago.
