“Woods' gum chomping drew attention all week. And although it's certainly not the first time he's chewed the sticky stuff during a tournament (We did some digging into this important matter on Friday when Golf Twitter took notice), it's definitely the first time he's worked his jaw like that from start to finish,” writes Alex Myers.

First it was Phil

Gum chewing among professional golfers recently came to my attention while spotting Phil Mickelson hard at it and now thanks to Alex Myers I am more knowledgeable when he writes, “Was he (Tiger) looking to "stimulate the front cortex" like Phil Mickelson.”
As for Tiger, "Well, I'm chomping on this gum because I usually get hungry, I keep eating so much," Woods explained. "And it curbs my appetite a little bit, which is nice."

So there you have it chewing gum may well be the answer to stopping snacking as well as learning how to activate your frontal cortex for better performance at golf.

“Forget dropping cash on a new driver or spending hours at the range. Turns out all you need for an improved golf game is...gum and caffeine.” - Joel Beall, from his article, “Can chewing gum improve your golf scores?”
