When playing golf the top ten things to consume on the course and carried by the beer girl usually are not good for you.
None the less they are carried by beer girls everywhere and consumed by duffers 7 days a week.
10. G2 Drink
On the golf course G2? Well it’s not bad, but it’s not good either. It has its pros and cons when consumed. Pros- low calories and good with exercising, and it’s got a great taste. Cons- high sugar content, high sodium content, not so good if you’re not exercising. Your golf game is only an exercise in mental anguish.
9. Bottled water
No nutritional value and no energy added. Only if you want to stay well hydrated will this affect your game and help with a hangover. Add a few aspirins and beer perhaps.
8. Muscle Milk Shake
Under the shroud of an energizer this drink is a protein supplement and should be taken by athletes and those who work out on regular regiment. Hacking your way around the local muni with your beer buddies is not a Jack Lalane work out. It just adds pounds.
7. Mountain Dew
The 2 cups of coffee were not enough. You now crave even more caffeine. This rocket in a bottle will have you so jittery you won’t be able to place your ball on the tee. Perhaps have the beer girl add some vodka to your Dew?
6. Granola Bars
Full of salt, calories and fat, this candy bar in disguise may have some whole grains and a raisin or two but that’s about it.
5. A Bloody Mary
The morning drink of most, this spicy vodka filled fruit concoction will get you a buzz and have you ready to take on the world. This sodium and alcohol cocktail has a small redeeming grace if an olive and squeeze of lime are added.
It’s a cool Sunday morning and a few cups of Joe at the first tee will warm you up. Well the caffeine will jack you up so much that you will have the yips so bad at the first green that a 3-footer will seem impossible. Now just take the edge off and see how you putt. Order a bloody Mary from the beer girl?
OK Ok Ok! Beer is a thirst quencher and base food group for all sports. Not much nutrition here but plenty of gluten. You cannot hit the fairway sober, so maybe a beer-infused buzz will improve your swing? Think not.
2. Sunflower/Pumpkin seeds
Although nutritious in most cases the best ones are salted and full of oil. This makes for added thirst and a quest for beer. Then there are all those spitted shells laying all over the tee boxes and greens. You’re not in the baseball dugout buddy!
1. Snickers bars
Delectable chocolate and caramel covered peanuts. Cold and sometimes frozen from the Beer Cart, these tasty treat can break a dental bridge and add inches to your waistline. Yummy!
There are some good options on the course; opt for a banana or an apple, have a peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat bread, or nibble on pre-wrapped cheese sticks and crackers. If you snack like this, a light beer won’t hurt that much! Try to drink one bottle of water for each beer … it’s all about balance.
