Available at Aesthetic Dentistry by Design, Under Armour Performance Mouthwear has been used by LPGA’s Vicky Hurst and Champions Tour player Bruce Fleisherwho is an outspoken advocate of its benefits.
It is called the potato-chip test. Place a potato chip in your mouth and attempt to hit a shot without breaking the chip.
“The concept of affecting performance by adjusting the jaws is centuries old. Viking and Roman warriors often bit on leather straps before going to battle. [Olympic sprinter] Usain Bolt used to bite on a neckless when he’d run.”
What the ArmourBite does is adjusts the placement of the jaw. “The wedge changes the physiology of what’s happening,” Molhoek said. “It interrupts the signal to the brain and as a result of that leads to the benefits — increased strength, endurance, reduction of lactic acid, reduction of cortisol. Cortisol has been linked to the yips. It’s really a bad thing, the antithesis of testosterone. It saps your ability to perform.”
