Study: Caffeine May Help Your Golf Game

from PGA.com

Before heading out to the course for your next round, you might want to go ahead and grab a cup of coffee or a caffeinated drink.

That’s the findings of a recent study done by a group of Auburn University researchers into the possible influence of caffeine on golf-specific performance and fatigue.

It was posted on the Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise® journal page of the American College of Sports Medicine website.

The researchers studied 12 male golfers with single-digit handicaps in a two-day, 36-hole tournament. Half received a caffeine supplement — roughly equal to the caffeine in an average cup of coffee — before their round and then again at the turn. The others received a placebo.

Then they checked a number of normal golf variables, including score, driving distance, fairways and greens in regulation, and putting. In addition, they recorded heart and breathing rates. The golfers were also asked to assess their own feelings of energy and fatigue, alertness and concentration. more
