A Bit From Grayson:
My name is Grayson and I have been playing golf since my first birthday party when my dad gave me my first set of clubs. They were a plastic set and I wore them out. I love hitting golf balls and watching them fly thru the air. Saturdays are a big golf day with my dad. We will normally play 18 holes in the morning, break for lunch, chip and putt in the afternoon, and end the day with 9 more holes of golf before the sun goes down. Saturdays are very long with lots of walking. Some golf courses have water fountains every few holes and some do not. Staying hydrated is important on these long golf days. On my golf cart is a cup holder and I always have my Nuun water bottle with Strawberry Lemonade Nuun inside. Sometimes my dad will give me a piece of a Strawberry Lemonade Nuun & I let it fizzle in my mouth while I drink water. It helps keep me going. Especially on hot days. During tournaments that don’t allow caddies I have to remind myself to drink my fluids, otherwise when my dad caddies he has to remind me to drink my fluids so I don’t burn out at the end of a tournament. Besides golf, I play basketball during the winter. I played point guard this past season we went 8-0, which was fun. Sports keep me busy and I love to compete.
