Editor’s picks: Everything you need to stay zen on the course
Golf is hard — physically, emotionally and mentally. Just ask Steph Curry and Max Homa, they’ll agree.
If your game resembles mine — with a couple of good holes sprinkled into a mess of unpredictable shots — you know how frustrating the game can be. What’s worse, the more frustrated I get, the worse I play. It’s a vicious cycle.
With all the frustration that can join a typical round, it can be hard to keep your cool. But over the years, I’ve learned staying relaxed and zen on the course really helps. Here are a few simple solutions that help me stay loose and have more fun on the course.
A *special* pre-round warmup
If I want to play well, I need to feel nice and loose. That’s where a Theragun mini comes in. It fits right in my bag, so I can use it on the range before I start hitting balls and can whip it out if I’m feeling extra crunchy on the course.

A stress-relieving solution
My secret weapon for staying calm in the face of yet another fried-egg lie in a bunker or three-putt is CBD oil. Like Phil Mickelson, I enjoy adding a few drops to my coffee to drink throughout my round. If you aren’t a caffeine addict, MedTerra’s CBD products come in the form of gummies or you can chew gum like Tiger during the final round of the 2019 Masters.

Between the CBD products and the massage gun, I have everything I need to stay zen on the course at my fingertips. Now maybe I should invest in some lessons so my game can look as good as I like to feel on the course.
