The Golfers Diet

Veteran golf equipment writer and former Golf Magazine senior editor Scott Kramer has published a new e-book, The Golfer’s Diet. THE GOLFER’S DIET helps players learn in general terms what kinds of foods to eat before, during and after a round of golf to help achieve their peak performance on the links. Kramer explains why the most-popular food items at golf courses are often the worst ones for your golf game, and outlines what healthier choices to substitute in their place. PGA and LPGA Tour pros tell first-hand what they eat, when they eat it, and what foods they avoid to help take their game to the next level. After reading this book, players will be much more aware of how to fuel their bodies, have more energy, less sluggishness, and fewer jitters throughout their golf round.  For the complete book, visit amazon.com for the Kindle versionor the instant pdf download.
