I gave it up around 44 or 45

Oddly enough, I had actually gotten in much better shape than I had been in when I started playing at the age of 35. I had lost weight and had much better stamina. I saw too many guys have serious knee injuries (I had a torn meniscus not long after I started played). Last two times I played, I moved well and felt great. Each time, I ended up hurting myself. First time, I ruptured my plantaris muscle. It was a long 1/4 mile limp back to my car. Months later I gave it one more shot and I pulled a hammy. At that point. I decided I would hang up the boots.
