During the Players Meeting at the 2016 Amino VITAL® / Joey D Golf Junior Championship at Osprey Point, “Coach Joey D” Diovisalvi shared just how important ‘healthy hydration’ is for players he works with on the PGA TOUR. “By the time you realize you’re thirsty, it’s too late. And the last place you want get dehydrated is the back nine on Sunday after- noon.” The human body is depleted of water faster than it can be replaced. Once dehydration sets in, performance suffers as the brain tries to man- age activity in a competitive environment under stress. Golfers who pro- actively prepare their bodies for the physical challenges of long competitive rounds gain a distinct advantage over those who don’t. Professional golfers typically drink a full bottle of water every four to six holes to stay ahead of the ‘dehydration curve.’ Many mix in Amino VITAL® Focus Zone, a sugar-free, caffeine-free plant-based amino acid formulation, to quickly provide the Nutritional Hydration they need to feel energized and sharp when top performance and clear thinking matters most!
