G-Mac Wins RBC Heritage Open

For the second consecutive week, two of golfs premier players squared away in a playoff to see who would come out on top.  This week at the RBC Heritage Open in Hilton Head South Carolina, it was Nuun Fan Graeme McDowell taking on fellow U.S. Open winner Webb Simpson.

In the end, Graeme was able to battle through 20 to 30 mile per hour winds and come back from a 4-stroke deficit on Sunday to make it into the playoff.  McDowell two putted from about 15 feet for a par on the extra hole to take the top spot!  Congrats Graeme!

McDowell finished with a 69, one of only three players in the 60’s out of the 70 total players that teed off on Sunday.  Graeme hopes that he can carry this momentum of what he called his “first authentic PGA Tour win” into the rest of the 2013 season.

McDowell showed that hydration is a key element to keeping his focus sharp and having the ability to grind out a victory.  Another strong example of how Nuun can help golfers play at their best!

Nuun Notes:

Studies have shown that a loss of only 2% of ones body weight due to sweating is linked to a drop in blood volume.  When this happens, the heart works harder to move blood throughout your bloodstream, causing muscle cramps, dizziness, and fatigue.  For golfers, this can cause a major decrease in performance.  Make sure that Nuun is always in your bag so you can stay on top of your hydration game!

Adam Scott Wins the 2013 Masters in Thrilling Playoff

The first major of the 2013 golf season has once again shown why it is one of the toughest tournaments of the year to conquer.  The 2013 Masters in Augusta, GA did not disappoint in showing the grit, will, and determination a golfer needs to triumph at this special place.

Nuun user Adam Scott sank a 12-foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole to beat Angel Cabrera to win the green jacket.  Congrats Adam!  On a day with tough, wet conditions, Scott made two critical putts on #18 and #10 to secure his place in Masters lore.  Hydration was obviously a key element in helping Adam stay focused and finish strong!  Scott is the first Australian born golfer to win this tournament.

Its amazing to think that it was only last summer, that Scott threw away the British Open by bogeying the last 4 holes to lose by one stroke.  He vowed to do better in the future, and it now seems he has made that promise a reality!

Continuing the trend this golf season, Nuun fans have once again made a strong showing, with 12 Nuun users finishing in the top 25!

Here is a list of the notable finishers:

  • Adam Scott
  • Jason Day
  • Brandt Snedeker
  • Sergio Garcia
  • Tim Clark
  • Dustin Johnson
  • Nick Watney
  • Henrik Stenson
  • Bill Haas
  • Luke Donald
  • Justin Rose
  • Charl Schwartzel

 

Nuun Notes:

Dehydration can happen for many reasons.  Most of the time, people do not recognize the signs of dehydration and only drink when they feel thirsty.  By the time you feel thirsty, you are probably already being affected by dehydration in more ways than one.  All the more reason to replenish with Nuun!  Whether you are on or off the course, make sure you are replacing those electrolytes so you can play at your best!
