A mod­er­ate dose of caf­feine may help com­bat fa­tigue and shave about two strokes off the scores of skilled col­le­giate play­ers, ac­cord­ing to a US univer­sity study.

Re­searchers stud­ied 12 caf­feinecon­sum­ing male golfers with a hand­i­cap of three to 18 as they played an 18-hole round of golf on two con­sec­u­tive days for a 36-hole tour­na­ment. For each round of golf, the play­ers in the caf­feine group had an av­er­age score of al­most 77 strokes com­pared to more than 79 for the placebo group.
