The 100-Year Golfer: 7 Arts for a Lifetime with the Game
Learn how mind and body training can help you upgrade your game and enjoy a lifetime of golf.
The author of the thought-provoking book I’ve Decided to Live 120 Years and founder of Body & Brain Yoga demonstrates how mind and body training can help you upgrade your game and enjoy a lifetime of golf.
Do you watch endless golf videos on YouTube, spend hours grinding on the practice range, or pay for expensive lessons, but see limited improvement in your game?
Does your body limit the progress you can make, do you frequently find yourself filled with frustration on the course, or are you considering dropping golf because of your age?
Ilchi Lee, the renowned meditation expert who globalized Korea’s ancient mind-body practice and who’s also an avid golfer, suggests a completely new approach to help you transcend these common golfing problems. Rather than focusing on the latest swing techniques and tricks, enhance your mind and body connection. If you’re looking to turn your golf knowledge into greater ability on the course, upgrading your mind and body connection is sure to bring results.
Learn golf qigong, golf meridian exercises, as well as breathing and meditation methods to help you develop a subtler, richer feel for your game along with greater strength and balance. Lee’s captivating stories and proven mind-body techniques will inspire you to see a new way to play with greater fulfillment and less stress. You’ll be surprised to discover how much this new perspective can change the way you swing a golf club, and how much more confident and gratified you’ll feel doing it.
This book is for dedicated golfers who consider the sport a tool for lifelong self-development, rather than just a fun hobby. With captivating stories and proven mind-body techniques, The 100-Year Golfer helps you understand how to tap into the greater depth and potential of the golf game, now and for years to come.
What Experts Say

“I saw a new horizon in golf by reading The 100-Year Golfer, beyond just a world of games where we live and die based on the score.”
–Yeonhee Han, Former Coach of the South Korean National Golf Team
“After reading this book, I added “playing golf in good health until the age of 100″ to my bucket list. This is a remarkable guide that inspires golfers who want to enjoy the benefits of increased longevity and continuous challenge. If this book is followed, you will be able to shoot your age.”
–Sooin Kim, Golf columnist and the author of Power Golf
“The golf swing is the work of the mind. Missed shots are caused by ‘errors in movement’, but the deeper reason why ‘errors in movement’ occur is ‘malfunction of the mind’. By getting into a flow state, you can improve your qi energy and shoot better shots. These days it’s common to obsess over the mechanics of the swing, but Ilchi Lee’s book approaches golf through breathing and energy. It was so refreshing to read, like discovering a clear spring on a hot day.”
–Heon Kim, Principal of Happy Golf Training Center, South Korea
“I was pleasantly surprised at Ilchi Lee’s enlightening insight into golf and its potential to help us grow and learn more about ourselves by being in the present moment. As I approach the beginning of a new season I am inspired by the idea that I’m gaining a deeper connection with myself and that a sport that I love can help me grow as a human being, rather than merely pursuing the next win.”
–Nicola Madden, Hilton Park Golf Club Ladies Club Champion, Scotland
“As I watch the devastating effects of dementia on my mother, I have never valued mental and physical health more. Reading Ilchi Lee’s The 100-Year Golfer offered a blueprint on how to keep your mind active and your body in shape to enjoy the game well into old age. Who wouldn’t want that?”
–Matt Callcott-Stevens, Writer for GolfSpan and Golf Workout Program
