The first of the four major championships is finally here, and the golf world is gearing up for one the most anticipated seasons to date. Heading to August National Golf Course in Georgia are all the big names in golf as the world predicts who will emerge victoriously. You’ve been gearing up for the Masters for several months, and as you head down to Augusta you want to be sure you have everything on hand to bring your A-game. Here at TimTam, we know what it’s like to prepare for big tournaments like the majors, which is why we've made a list of the 5 absolute must-haves for your golf bag at the masters - the kinds of must-have that you won’t find anywhere else on the web. Whether you’re looking to stay cool or do a last-minute roll-out of the knots in your shoulder with a lacrosse massage, you’re going to need these five items in your golf bag.
Staying Cool and Dry has Never Been Easier
We’ve been there. Hours on the course, all eyes on you, sun beating down on you. The pressure alone is enough to make you break a sweat, but with the hot Georgia rays beating down on you, a breaking wind isn’t enough to keep you cool. That’s why you need a chamois towel in your golf bag. Easy to bring along and compact, a chamois towel is ideal for golfers - and athletes everywhere - for a variety of reasons. Rather than becoming saturated with sweat or from drying wet clubs in a storm, a chamois towel rings out perfectly and is super absorbent, keeping your golf bag from carrying too much extra bulk. Not only is a chamois towel great for drying off, but is the ultimate tool for cooling off. Chamois towels naturally stay cool, but having your caddy keep a chamois towel in the cooler or between cold water will make it the most refreshing towel for between holes, guaranteed.
TimTam Lacrosse Massage Balls
Quick, Compact, and Effective Balls for an Anytime Lacrosse Massage
After several strength workouts, hundred of swings at the range, and a solid warmup, you’re sure to be feeling sore and tight heading into the Masters. That’s why you need the TimTam Lacrosse Massage Balls. Small yet perfect for breaking up knots and massaging soreness, the Lacrosse Massage Balls provide deep, targeting pressure to muscle areas and trigger point when you need it most. Use the TimTam Lacrosse Massage Ball for myofascial release, which - when used properly - helps maintain flexibility, a full range of moment, and fast, fluid motions. This attention to the fascia is exactly what you need for a smooth and swift swing that packs power.
Most golfers use the Lacrosse Massage Balls for quick on-the-spot relief from soreness, aches, and knots. When you order the Lacrosse Massage Balls from TimTam, you’ll receive 2 balls - meaning one can stay in your golf bag for whenever the aches arise, and the other can stay in your gym bag or at home for post-workout recovery. Not only are the Lacrosse Massage Balls great for rolling out knots in your back and shoulders, but can assist in relaxing leg muscles and arches after a tough workout or long day on your feet. No matter how you use your lacrosse massage balls, you’re sure to feel less tense and fully rejuvenated after a roll out.
The Functional Sunglasses for All Athletes
There’s nothing worse than losing your ball in the sun, developing a headache from the bright sunlight, or feeling like you’re straining and squinting during interviews. For golf players - and any athlete who plays outside and can wear sunglasses - a solid pair of polarized sunglasses are an absolute must-have. Regular sunglasses, while dulling the brightness of the sun, do not remove sunbeams and glares from your line of vision entirely. The major benefit of a pair of polarized sunglasses is the blocking of horizontally polarized light that creates a glare. Polarized sunglasses also block the bright shimmer of sunlight on water or a reflective surface, making it easier to keep your eye on the ($11 million) prize.
Portable Phone Charger
A Lifesaver for You and Your Entourage
A portable phone charger is one of those things you never think to put in your golf bag until you desperately need it and don’t have it. Take it from us -- this one is a total lifesaver. Before big championships, charge a portable phone charging bank in the hotel and tuck it away in your bag. While small and compact, many of these portable chargers can charge your phone several times and the power can last for more than a year. Never again find yourself unable to make an important call after a big victory or staring at a black screen after your phone dies from overheating. Keep a portable phone charge in your bag for these unfortunate moments -- you can thank us later.
Packing like the pros for the major championships means always being on top of your game. Train and recovery like the pros all year round with the help of TimTam’s line of recovery products - including power massagers, lacrosse massage balls, and more - for the modern athlete.
