ORLANDO, Fla. (Jan. 26, 2012) -- Well known to runners and triathletes, Nuun wasn't neccesarily crafted with the golfer in mind.

That has changed in recent years as the effervescent electrolyte tablet has become a favorite on the PGA Tour and a key product in many golf shops.

Thank Davis Love III for that...

"Davis [Love III] tried it on a snowboarding trip with his children and absolutely loved it," explained David Everett, Managing Director of Golf with Nuun at the PGA show in Florida.

"His agent reached out to us regarding a potential sponsorship but the company at first wasn't interested in entering the golf market."

Love III remained persistent and when he called again, with the Nuun brand growing fast, it made sense to gear towards the golfer.

Nuun comes in effervescent tabs, which quickly dissolve in a water bottle or cup. The tabs are easy to take with you and come in 11 flavors, including lemon-lime, tri-berry, strawberry lemonade, grape, orange and fruit punch, among others. Nuun has zero sugar and under eight calories. Most importantly, it provides the electrolytes athletes need to remain hydrated.

We tried them on the course in California, and really enjoyed the great taste and convenience. Nothing against other mainstay bottled energy drinks, but along with the electrolytes they carry calories that you really don't need to get hydrated. If you're health conscious, that may be reason enough to try Nuun. (And an important point of reference - we can tell you from experience that Nuun passes the 11-year-old taste test.)

Nuun is used by athletes across many sports. In addition to Love III, many players on the PGA Tour use Nuun to stay hydrated. Keegan Bradley, Padraig Harrington, Luke Donald, Charl Schwartzl, Jason Day and Adam Scott are just a few players that represent the brand --- without being paid. In all, more than 45 players on tour use Nuun.
