    Dear all

    My name is Pete and i am a masters student currently researching sports nutrition. The energy demands of a round of call vary significantly from 500 up to 2500 calories per round of golf (up to 450 calories per hour) covering around 4 miles dependent on the type of course. Little research exists following full physical demands of a round of golf and appropriate nutrition for health, physical fitness, mental demands and sports performance. This is something i would like to change in order to promote sport for health and wellbeing and performance, whilst hoping to gather respect as a nutritionist in the golfing arena and develop education to doctorate level.

    I am currently recruiting for golfers over 50 years old to understand the energy demands for them on a golf course and try to understand nutritional habits balanced against sporting recommendations and hope to present opportunities to tailor nutrition to benefit mental and physical performances and propose nutrition for the golf course before during and after competition. I have done this myself and tend to find i often lack energy for the last 4-5 holes and often see my scores falter towards the end of a round, for others it may be at the beginning. I just need to obtain information from more people and am keen for a number of volunteers to complete a food and exercise diary for 4 days to produce results more representative of the population. From a health perspective, i am keen to present golf as a sport for health promotion and protective against cardiovascular disease and diabetes (suitable for weight management).

    If anyone is interested i would be ever so grateful and would be able to feedback nutritional profiles free of charge for participants. 

    If you can send me a message i can send you some further details.

    Many thanks in anticipation

    Peter
