We all know the importance of staying hydrated. Did you know it is not only important for your health, it also affects your performance on the golf course? Below are a list of tips for you to keep in mind that will help keep you hydrated on the golf course:
Drink Water: This seems like the most obvious solution for someone who is in fear that they may be dehydrated but somehow, it is still often overlooked! Prepare yourself before hitting the course by drinking a good amount of water the day before and the morning of. Also make preparations before going on the course by bringing multiple bottles of water with you out on the course. A few sports drinks with electrolytes also can go a long way ensuring your body is getting enough minerals to handle all the sweating on the course.
Dress Cool: Wearing lightly colored, breathable fabrics will go a long way keeping you cool in the summer heat. This is because light colors reflect the sun’s heat, pushing it away from the body, while black fabrics attract the heat and will insulate your clothing. Additionally, breathable fabrics will allow you to catch the cool breezes and air out, instead of trapping the heat in your clothing. Many brands that sell clothes for golf offer apparel in moisture-wicking fabrics that keep you cool on the course. These are definitely worth exploring if you have not already!
Cold Towels: When you are out on the course with the sun beating down on you, sometimes drinking water and dressing appropriately just is not enough to keep you comfortable! Taking moist towels and freezing them, then storing them in ziplock bags is a great solution for when you need a quick cool down on the course. Some stores even offer towels that have been made from evaporative materials. These materials allow the towel to feel dry to the touch but retain moisture, so they can cool you down gently.
These are just a few quick and easy solutions to make sure you are taking care of yourself out on the golf course this summer! Have fun and stay hydrated!
