The Baylor Bears Golf Team had a great season in 2010. There are several examples of success that demonstrate this team’s achievements. They qualified for the NCAA Championships for the 5th time in the schools golf history. One of the team, Joakim Mikkelsen, was chosen to the Ping All Central Region Team, earned Individual Medalist honors at the Border Olympics and was named All Big 12 Academic First Team. They moved into the Golfweek Magazine top 50 college teams and were picked by Golfweek as the collegiate golf “Team Of The Week” during their push to the NCAA tournament. That’s a great season.
That success is due to the talent and hard work of the young men who produced those results. Their efforts are directed by an outstanding young Golf Coach, Greg Priest. Greg is one of a growing number of forward thinking coaches and administrators who are looking at every aspect of their programming to find ways to improve their results, to be more competitive. Improving results is the sole purpose of Eat2Compete programming from Athletes Outdoors.
Programming performance nutrition from metabolic assessment in a sport specific way is a new process that hasn’t been applied to Outdoor Sports, not just types and quality of food, but choreographed timings!
Here is what Coach Priest had to say after having completed the season, their first full season using Athletes Outdoors’ Eat2Compete programming.
“After working with Ken and Athletes Outdoors, we have seen a huge improvement in our teams performance, and we believe it’s a major reason for our team’s success this season. The competition (food) packs were great! They allowed us to eat on the go, which helped us maintain our energy level and focus. This program really helped our guys understand the importance of nutrition, not only for a round of golf, but for a tournament result.”
