On Monday 8th June the long wait for competitive golf came to an end as 114 players went head to head in an 18 hole shoot out on the 2020 Pro Tour, one of the UK’s finest mini tours. Following 2 months of lockdown it’s perhaps no surprise that the event was attended by some of the UK’s top professional golfers including Marcus Armitage, Phillip Archer and Ryder Cup star, Jamie Donaldson.
Teeing off early in the afternoon was our very own Staffordshire based, James Adams. Kicking things off with a birdie, James went on to shoot a tremendous 66 (-4), finishing in 4th place and only 2 shots behind joint leaders David Hague and Nicholas Poppleton.
James’ first round back also marked the start of his new partnership with Golfer's CBD, a new company dedicated to improving both professional and amateur performance on the golf course through the use of CBD. Although the use of CBD in sport is still in its infancy, it is already being used by the likes of Bubba Watson, Lucas Glover and Charley Hoffman on the PGA Tour to help aid recovery, fatigue and even anxiety.
“There is no magic potion to replace the benefit of regular practice and play but it’s very common that a minor mental or physical issue can hold you back. Our objective is that Golfer’s CBD will help give each player the perfect platform to play their best golf” explains co-owner of Golfer's CBD, Andy Dixon.
“Using CBD helps me feel way more present on the golf course, it helps me settle into the perfect balance of intensity and relaxed focus, enabling me to get the most out of my game. The anti-inflammatory aspect of the CBD leaves me feeling fresher during and after each competition” says James Adams.
James is so stranger to being at the top of a leaderboard and after winning two EuroPro events, a top 5 on the European Challenge Tour and now a great start to 2020, we’re really excited to see him progress with the added support of Golfers CBD. If you'd like to follow his progress, James will be competing in the next 2020 Pro Tour event on the 15th June at Oulton Hall.
