Best Oncourse Snacks For Golfers
Peanut butter and jelly
A peanut butter and jelly sandwich may not be everybody's top snack, but many golfers carry the sandwich with them for extra energy at an appropriate time. There's a quick rush from the sugar in the jelly, and the peanut butter has protein. Former professional golfer Al Geiberger was known for carrying his peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and won several tournaments after re-energizing himself with the snack.
Apples and Fruit
Many golfers will pack apples or other fruits. There are clearly health benefits to eating the fruit, and most golfers, athletes and others find having an apple or an orange quite refreshing when they are tired.
While candy bars don't have much nutritional value, they do provide a positive spike in an individual's energy level. This is no substitute for a decent meal or a healthy snack, but if a golfer is fading in the final holes of a match, a chocolate bar may provide just the energy needed to finish the round.
