What do Jason Day and I have in common? Lots. We’re both incredibly athletic, good looking to the nines, have great golf swings… mostly we both drink swingOIL on the golf course. swingOIL you ask? One has to laugh at the name swingOIL because most golfers I play with refer to “swing oil” or “swing lube” as a different liquid sustenance which typically comes in a flask and could be a substitute for jet fuel in a pinch.
What is swingOIL?
swingOIL is a golf supplement which comes in convenient to carry and store 3-ounce pouches. Inside that little pouch is lots of good golf in liquid form, and quite tasty too.
- GLUCOSAMINE (100 mg.) & 2 – CHONDROITIN (50mg.)
- TURMERIC (40 mg.)
- TAURINE (100 mg.)
- CITRULLINE MALATE (100 mg.)
- GINSENG EXTRACT (100 mg.)
- RHODIOLA ROSEA EXTRACT (50 mg.)
The glucosamine and chondroitin help with joints and stiffness, helping to keep the body loose and lubricated. Turmeric fights inflammation, something I battle quite badly. Citrulliene Malate helps with recovery. Ginseng, is an energy booster which helps with focus. Rhodiola Rosea extract helps relieve stress. Viagra helps with (just seeing if you’re really paying attention)….
swingOIL comes in three flavors: Strawberry-banana, lemon-lime, and orange. My personal favorite is strawberry-banana.
On The Course
You can’t make this up. Here’s my first experience with swingOIL, which I shared with my golf buddy “Shanego” who was in from out of town. We were golfing along and I’d forgotten that I brought along some swingOIL samples. On the 8th tee I busted them out. In the photo below you can see Shanego drinking a lemon-lime. I had a strawberry-banana. At three ounces, they don’t take long to drink.
We both hit great tee shots. As the swingOIL was apparently entering out systems we then hit two incredible approaches to the tucked, uphill green around a set of trees on the par-4. Shanego’s approach was left of the pin about 10 feet and mine about 5 feet right. We BOTH drained our putts for birdie. Call it coincidence or the swingOIL, but the numbers didn’t lie, hehe. Like I said, you can’t make this up. The only question was whether or not I’d have to drink one swingOIL for every hole I play the rest of my life…
I have to admit to having a little feeling of my heart racing. I’ve never done energy drinks or ginseng of any kind. So I did feel a bit wired for a couple of holes.
I’m capable of playing some good golf for around 15-16 holes. Then comes the “brain fart” where I lose focus and wreck the round with some bad swings. That lack of focus could be fatigue related, or simply just mental. Perhaps for me I can avoid that lapse and finish off some good rounds of golf with swingOIL in the bag.
