Nutrition Tips to Help Your Golf Performance

Nutritional and neuroscience research has added a lot to our understanding of golf performance. Learning from out PGA Tour players we understand that it is important to get properly hydrated, have enough electrolytes, get enough protein early in the day, enough carbohydrates to fuel your performance. So have a strategy that is like the professionals in that before the round, two hours before the round, you get enough amino acids, enough carbohydrates to fuel your round. While you are on the course at least every three holes drink some water, use some power bars, use some of these new drinks that reduce cholesterol while adding energy. These things will help your performance, help your decision making and help your self regulation.
