If you’re having an hour down the driving range or playing two rounds back to back, think of your energy levels. You will not be able to perform at you best if you are tired. If you are practising then make sure you are well hydrated and energised.

If you are having half hour down the range on your way back from work then you won’t need a golf bar. You just need some hydration and maybe some fruit. Maybe a banana or a protein shake. But if you are having a round after work then you should be thinking about fuelling your body so you still feel okay on the 18th. Take a look at some of the tips above and try and find a system that suits you. This will give you the best chance to lower your score/
