Nutrition Formula For Better Scoring

Does an apple a day keep the bogey's away?

Maybe not exactly, but the right nutrition translates to energy, and energy is essential for strength, endurance and concentration when you play golf.

Many golfers don't give enough credit to the importance of nutrition for a round of golf. Many rush out the door to make their tee time and don't pack food, leaving their game to suffer by the time they reach the back nine.


Follow the steps below, and I guarantee that it will make a difference in your ability to maintain good concentration and focus for your full 18 hole round.

Here's the TomTuckerGolf Nutrition Formula for keeping your strength, endurance and most importantly - BACK NINE CONCENTRATION LEVEL - high when you play.
    For a morning round:

  1. Breakfast - orange juice, three egg omelete, one piece of toast, coffee or tea if you drink it.

    OR my favorite breakfast - a protein shake and a banana, and a cup of tea.

    For an afternoon round:

    Eat a high protein lunch OR my favorite once again, a protein shake and a banana.

  2. On course, Hole 4, eat a peanut butter sandwich made on multi grain bread.

  3. On Hole 8 drink a protein shake.
If you are absolutely not the type of player that's going to pack a sandwich, at least drink a protein shake on Hole 8 and your concentration should hold up for the entire 18 hole round.

Substitutes for the sandwich and protein drink: nibble on nuts or beef jerkey starting on Hole 4 continuing through Hole 12.

Here's my choice for a good protein drink: Orgain Organic Grass Fed Protein Shake, Vanilla Bean, 26g Protein. Low calorie(150) and high protein (26g), a great combination. It's the same protein drink that Bryson DeChambeau drinks (but I was drinking them first 😃).

Commit to good on course nutrition and you'll really like the results.


Love your practice, own your swing, own your health,
