Fuelling your body with suitable nutrition and hydration for competitive success on the golf course should not be overlooked as part of your preparation.
Due to the nature of the sport, golfers are best served by a steady stream of energy which the body can access during a 7-mile, 5-hour round. Nutrition and hydration are crucial in helping to maintain concentration; promoting strong decision making; improving stamina and helping players to manage the stress and nerves experienced when standing over that 10 ft putt for birdie.
For elite professionals, add to this the demands of intense heat (or intense cold), long tiring days, regular gym training, peaks of stress and a gruelling schedule of international travel and all gains are valuable.
