Golf Gum: Could this chewing gum really lower your scores?

Published

on

If Jordan Spieth’s gum chewing at the British Open inspired you to chomp a stick on course yourself, you might as well chew gum specifically designed for the golfer, right? Such is the thinking of Denver-based Apollo Gum Company with its Golf Gum.

The spearmint-flavored gum contains B-vitamins and 80 mg of natural caffeine to boost a golfer’s energy and focus on course…and lower his/her scores.

Seriously. Lower scores. Golf Gum makes some bold claims

“According to a 2016 study conducted by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), a division of the National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health, “A moderate dose of caffeine consumed before and during a round of golf improves golf-specific measures of performance and reduces fatigue.” A 2015 Auburn University study found similar results, shaving, on average, two strokes off of collegiate golf scores. “Chewing gum was [also] associated with enhanced productivity and reduced cognitive errors,” according to the NCBI.

Troy Widgery, CEO and founder of Apollo Gum Company, claims the company is “creating the future of energy.”

“Golf Gum’s liquid core delivery system rapidly releases the full benefits of specially-sourced natural caffeine and B-vitamins. Although the taste lasts for hours, you don’t have to chew it for more than a few minutes to experience the results of a pure, compact formula that provides smooth energy.”

Golf Gum hits shelves on December 12, 2017, and can be purchased online at www.golfersgum.com. Local Colorado pro shops and select retailers will also carry the product, with nationwide expansion slated for early 2018.

What do you think, GolfWRXers, are you buying the claim? Have you ever sipped a coffee on course to beneficial effect? Chugged an energy drink? Are you going to give the score-lowering gum a try?

    Is it a coincidence that both pieces of gum and golf clubs are called “sticks”?
    I think not.

    Xylitol is toxic to dogs, be careful with it if you use products/candies that have it.

This incredible Tiger Woods supercut shows every shot of his 2019 Masters win

Published

on

A major championship tradition unlike any other in its own right: Michael David Murphy has outdone himself with his final-round supercut.

Instead of merely splicing together footage of the winner’s final 18 holes, the photographer and videographer went four-in-one, including all four of Woods’ 2019 Masters rounds in the same majestic frame.

You are a true artist, sir!
