Questionnaire Hydration for Golfer

Hydration for golfers is an important issue that is often under estimated. Dehydration of 1 to 2 percent can produce a decrease in athletic performance by 5%. This can make the difference between winning and losing. This is a simple checklist to help you determine if you are hydrating enough.


Question

Yes

No

Do you drink 150 to 300 mls 15 mins prior to competition?

Do you have a plan to drink when playing?

Do you drink 150 to 250mls every 15 to 20 mins?

Are you able to maintain clear pale urine during the game?

Are you able to maintain body weight during the game?

Do you drink at least 600 mls per hour when playing?

Do you modify your drinking regime according to the climatic condition?

Do you drink sports drinks to maximise your hydration levels?

Do you limit your intake of alcohol before during & after golf?

Do you minimise your intake of caffeine containing fluids such as Cola, tea, coffee when playing?

Do you drink sports drinks or water and limit intake of fruit juice, soft drinks, tea and coffee when playing?

Do you ensure you rehydrate well after a game by drinking 150% of lost fluids?


If you have answered “NO” to any of these questions you have compromised your golf.

Maintaining good hydration levels could make the difference between winning and losing the game.

The more you have answered “NO” to the more you have compromised your game.

Maintaining good hydration levels is crucial in maximising your full potential on the course.
