Athletes and those who live active lifestyles have long been focused on being the best version of themselves. The sport of golf is no different. With a focus on low scores and minimizing the overall amount of strokes taken, golf is a game where truly every movement and moment matters. The mental preparation occurs before each shot begins from calculating distance, wind, and other geographical elements that will be a factor for the shot. Then comes alignment of the body with the ball as well as the target followed by taking the proper swing with the right power, proper line and ideal ball strike.
Golf is both a physical and mental game and those who play, from the amateur ranks to the PGA tour have always been intrigued and willing to try anything that may offer them an advantage to scoring lower and improving their game.
In 2018, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) removed CBD from its Prohibited List, allowing its use by PGA Tour players and Olympic athletes. The PGA Tour, as a participant in the Games, takes its direction on drug enforcement from WADA and the United States Anti-Doping Agency.
Golf Digest interviewed a range of tour players, caddies and coaches and many stated they routinely use CBD products. Top names associated with CBD in golf include Bubba Watson, Charley Hoffman, Lucas Glover and Scott Piercy along with Champions Tour player Scott McCarron.
Scott McCarron was one of the earliest players who spread the word among his colleagues on the Champions Tour, the men’s professional senior golf tour administered as a brand of the PGA Tour that is open to aging professional golfers over the age of 50. For those players who are getting older, anything that helps them feel their best is a welcome addition.
Some golf executives including Andy Levinson, Executive Director of the PGA Tour Anti-Doping Program, have expressed concern over the quality of some products. Luckily for those golfers interested in Revivid Sport, there is no concern of THC. All Revivid Sport products are verified with 3rd Party Test Results confirming not only the potency of Cannabidiol (CBD) per product but also that no THC exists.
