There’s nothing like an afternoon playing 18 holes with your buddies. You’re outside in the sunshine, maybe throwing back a beer or two, and enjoying a game that’s been loved across the globe for centuries.
When you start out on the green, life seems great. By the time you hit the back nine, however… things might be a little different. Your swing is off, you don’t hit as far, and you simply don’t have the focus to play like when the day began. And don’t even get us started about how you feel when you get back home — aching, exhausted, and ready to pass out!
This is known as golfer’s fatigue, and it’s a common phenomenon for golfers everywhere. But it doesn’t have to be! A golf drip from Lone Star IV Medics can help you feel less tired after golf so you can tee off at hole 18 with just as much gusto as your first drive of the day!
On the surface, golf may seem like an “easy sport.” After all, you rarely see golfers panting and sweating like basketball players, runners, or other athletes! So why is it that so many players suffer from golf fatigue?
The answer is simple: golf is very physically demanding.
Firstly, there’s the walking. According to the World Golf Federation, the average player walks about 5 miles every time they play 18 holes! And when you consider the strength and flexibility required to drive your ball down the green, it’s easy to see how a game of golf could tire someone out.
There’s also a mental factor at play. Golf requires players to really focus on each swing, adjusting factors like their stance or the club they use to respond to the elements around them. This means that each hole expends a lot of mental energy, and you often have to keep that focus for 4-6 hours!
Finally, there’s a social element of golf that can contribute to even greater fatigue. Drinking alcohol while playing is common for golfers, particularly when you’re enjoying an afternoon out with friends. The trouble is that alcohol is a diuretic, which means it can dehydrate your body quickly.
Simply put, a game of golf involves being outside (usually in the sunshine), drinking alcohol, and doing a lot of exercise for half the day. When you consider these factors, it’s no surprise that many players feel tired after golf — or in some cases, start feeling it before they reach the 18th hole.
