It’s all in the mouth: The new Under Armour Mouthguard can improve many aspects of your game
You may think that there isn’t much a mouthguard can offer the golf game.
Well, Under Armour is about to change all of that with the release of their Performance Mouthwear, a range to help unlock your full potential.
Powered by ArmourBite Technology, they have been shown in studies to improve strength, endurance and reaction time, all of which are directly related to golf.
When you exert yourself, clenching the jaw is a natural reaction. This triggers the release of hormones, such as cortisol, that result in stress and fatigue.
UA’s Performance Mouthwear stop your teeth from contacting, preventing this reaction.
For golf, the UA Performance Mouthpiece, pictured, is perfect, and is available only through NUview’s network of authorised dentists.
In addition to those custom-made models, a self-fit range at £50 will be available in JJB Sports, American Golf, pro shops and specialist stores.
• UA partner Bite Tech, Inc. created ArmourBite Technology after 15 years of research.
RRP: From £350
