EAT CLEAN, PLAY BETTER

Cameron Tringale doesn’t hesitate when asked to describe his worst day of eating, nutritionally speaking. He was in Savannah, Ga., for St. Patrick’s Day, strolling the river and eating funnel cake, the type of food that’s great for fairs if not necessarily the human body. And that wasn’t his only delicious, but sub-optimal, gut-bomb. “I remember walking along eating one of those massive turkey legs, the kind of thing that Fred Flintstone would eat,” Tringale says. “I’ve eaten some pretty ugly stuff.” Gary Player notwithstanding, the standard greasy, salty, doughy, sugary grab-and-go diet was once fairly common on the PGA TOUR. Today, a small but growing number of players are eating more like not only Player but also 12-time Grand Slam winning tennis player Novak Djokovic and age-defying, five-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Tom Brady. Sugar, unless it comes from a piece of fruit, is a no-no. So is most […]

MASTERS HAS INTERNATIONAL FLAVOR

Golfers who were born outside of the United States are now the norm, not the exception, at the Masters Tournament. In 2016, 49 of the 89 golfers who started were international players. The foreign-born players have outnumbered the Americans since 2007. Changes in qualifications — the top 50 in the World Golf Ranking earn invitations — have brought more of an international flair. Last year was a prime example of the international power: nine of the 14 players who finished at the top, led by winner Danny Willett of England, were from foreign countries. In 1961, though, 73 of the 88 starters were Americans. And Arnold Palmer, the defending champion at Augusta National Golf Club, was their leader. Gary Player, of South Africa, was the leading money winner on the professional tour through the first three months of the season, but Palmer was getting all the attention heading into the […]
