Biltong Avoids the Heavy Digestion Blues
I find that digestion adversely impacts upon my ability to swing the club well and stay in touch with the subtilities necessary to play good golf. Biltong avoids the heavy digestion required by carbohydrate rich foods. It is like a miracle superfood supplement easily available for a quick top up of energy out there on the links. There is nothing worse than having a good round going and watching it disappear due to diminishing energy levels. If you can, also, avoid the heavy digestion blues impacting upon a few holes during your round it makes for the ideal support for top line golf. Which is why I love biltong on the golf course.
Why Are There So Many Great South African Golfers?
I have, often, wondered why there are so many great South African golfers and whether biltong plays a part in their superior on-course performances? I know, in my own case, I could not imagine doing without this natural helper. Golf is a game where you walk around 10km every round (real golfers walk the course) and swing the club upward of a hundred times (counting practice swings). There are highs and lows happening during every round, searching for golf balls (yours and your partners), missing fairways and putts, digging holes in bunkers, and having to add up all your shots. Chewing a delicious and nourishing mouthful of biltong can be a momentary relief from the enormity of all this at the time.
Sure, golf is just a game, but it definitely doesn’t feel like that when you are out there doing battle with the course. The concentration required to drive the ball immense distances and keep it on the fairway is demanding to say the least. The ability to change gears from the big booming drive down to the delicate finickity putt that breaks right to left is equally challenging. Suddenly, forcing yourself in the bunker not to hit the ball but to take sand instead asks much discipline of the proponent of the game of golf. Biltong provides the protein hit necessary to maintain these feats for more than four hours in this bubble of competing golfers at your local course. If you haven’t tried it, as an accompaniment over 18 holes, then, you have something to look forward to. Get the edge over your mates and blitz the field next Saturday.
