Welcome to Gimme That, a GOLF.com column where we’ll highlight one notable item we think you might like. Whether it’s an article of clothing, an intriguing electronic device or anything in between, we want to share these items with you because they’ve generated a bit of chatter by our water cooler (or, these days, on our Slack channel). So sit back, scroll down and keep up with the latest gear golf has to offer.
When I think about walking more than 18 holes, I imagine the endeavor as it was when I was 18 — a piece of cake. But, by the 27th, my legs usually feel otherwise, and if I walk more than 36 (see: The Bethpage Gauntlet), I’m out of sorts for days.
Therabody, a wellness and recovery brand made famous by their Theragun massage device, is looking to change this with their new and improved RecoveryAir leg compression product line. But even if you’re not a walker, this could be a key element to improving your game.
Any time your legs feel sore — whether that be from a tough day in the gym, a hike, a Peloton ride, or just that stiffness that comes with age — it will impact your golf swing. The RecoveryAir products minimize that ache by applying an array of pressures across the legs, essentially giving you a deep tissue massage. This process boosts lymphatic drainage, decreases muscle stiffness, increases circulation, and reduces delayed onset muscle soreness — how I would have loved to have these after walking 90 holes at Bethpage!!
At first glance, these seems like something for professional athletes or gym hardos only, but think back to the last time you stepped on the first tee and didn’t feel your best. The portable, wireless, easy-to-use nature of the JetBoots makes them a great tool for washed-up, amateur athletes (like me) and the World No. 2 golfer, Collin Morikawa.
