Peter Walsh: Stay Hydrated

Hydration to help your golf game.

We have all heard how staying hydrated is important for our well being, but maybe we need to be reminded of some of those benefits.

1. Helps maximize physical performance

2. Significantly affects energy levels and brain function

3. May help prevent and treat headaches

4. Can aid weight loss

5. It regulates body temperature

During these dog days of summer don’t let your energy level drop as it will affect your performance on the golf course.

I try and take a small drink of water after each hole i play.

It doesn’t have to be a lot, but as they say “every little bit helps” and that can mean hydration or even a little practice for our game.
