Colorado native Carol Livengood is doing just what her name suggests — Livin’ good.
She’s 90 years old, but that hasn’t stopped her and her friend, Carol Flenniken, from playing golf — a lot. Flenniken was once the top-ranked female golfer in the state of Colorado. Livengood never considered herself a pro, but the two certainly play as much as any professional would, sometimes getting out five times a week.
Livengood credits golf for helping her make it to 90 years of age, and says that all senior citizens need to stay active if they want to get there, too.
“They need to quit dwelling on what they don’t have anymore,” Livengood said. “Whether it’s physical or mental capabilities or family that they don’t have and concentrate on things they still have.”
After all, age is just a number.
