Welcome back, I have a simple question for you… What’s the biggest problem you face on the golf course? You might be surprised to discover it’s not your driver, it’s not your putter and it’s not the annoying guy in the clubhouse.
The truth is a recent study showed that 75% of all golfers, struggle with hydration.
Let me explain, what many golfers don’t realize is that what, and how much you drink are actually among the most important decisions you make on the golf course.
Your choice can mean the difference between playing with energy, focus, and coordination, or suffering from fatigue, weakness and exhaustion.
Consider these two quick points…
With that said, I think it is safe to say that proper hydration has an immensely positive impact on your game.
Now most golfers know that soda and energy shots are bad for their game, but sugary sports drinks are not much better. Sports drinks such as Gatorade might give you a quick boost, but it will result in a “crash” not long after you drink them.
When it comes to staying hydrated on the golf course water is always a great option, however, water does lack vital minerals and vitamins the body needs to perform at a high level.
So, the next question is… What should you drink on the golf course?
To help answer this question, I placed a call to a colleague of mine, Dr. Frank Green. For decades Dr. Frank has been a golf nutrition research scientist. He specializes in providing evidence-based information and guidance to ensure golfers, like you, implement and evaluate nutritional strategies to optimize their performance out on the course.
It was a real treat to chat with Dr. Frank, and he quickly addressed the key areas that centralize around hydration and the direct correlation to a golfer’s performance.
See exactly what you should do to stay hydrated out on the course and improve your performance. Trust me you will be happy you checked this out.
Sometimes it’s the little things that add up to make a HUGE difference on your scorecard.
