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.

The DailyWRX: What’s buzzing on social media (5/26/2020)

Published

on

I hope everyone had a safe Memorial Day weekend—but we back to work and the golf season is in full blossom.

Here is what was a buzzin’ on the interweb.

Hmm…

I wonder who from the top sheet is a legitimate stick. My money is on Steph. I’ve seen him up close and the guy can get it around—meaning the guy can hit it all over the place and still shoot in the low 70s. That’s the mark of a player.

Thank you…

I get to work a dream job because you all fight to keep us safe. We are nothing without you.

If you were placing bets before the tee shots…

No one, I mean no one, bets on TW having the worst shot. Odds are 6.5 billion to 1.

The equation of comfy…

Torn ground + favorite t-shirt = kitty fur…I get it. I’m in. Where do I pay?

Public service announcement…

He split his pants. It’s Tom Brady. No amount of memes, Twitter posts, or IG things will make it anything. I was hoping the world would let that one go due to its LOWWWWWWWWW hanging fruit appeal. I mean I’m writing a “do not post”…post on it, What a world.

DM @johnny_wunder with non-Tom Brady tore his pants stuff.

At GolfWRX, we love golf equipment plain and simple

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.

These are some of the latest cool finds from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules

Member dlarocca1 – Drool worthy Miura Set

There are nasty sets, and then there are NASTY SETS!! These Mitsubishi OTi110 shafts are not common and to see them in a set like this is even more impressive. To top it all off they have been built with BB&F Ferrules, to give them an extra premium look (it’s not like it was really needed – but they are appreciated). This set is expensive but still well under what it would cost new.
