Since the blog is a short write up, I decided to expand on some of the points I made in it here:
1) Always eat before your round! Â It’s a good idea to have some food in your stomach before you go run out to play. Â It’s stressful enough to get to the course with barely enough time to warm-up, so make sure you have eaten and have fuel for your round!
2) Choose water over sugary drinks. Â Everyone likes a Gatorade or soda, but while your golfing (and especially in heat or humidity) water will serve you much better. Â Water keeps you hydrated, that keeps your more muscles more limber which you want throughout your round.
3) Love up the good fats and protein! Â I can’t stress enough, stay away from sugary foods and drinks. Â Instead opt for some protein and fat (example would be some almonds and beef jerky, or a protein bar over a granola bar). Â Reason being is you want good consistent blood sugar levels throughout your round. Â If you eat a candy bar you will get your sugar rush, but you will crash and you don’t want that happening when your trying to sink that 4 footer for birdie.
Remember performance is about being prepared. Â Eat smart, train smart and practice smart! Â Your golf game will improve if you put the right work in!!
