What’s in Hallberg’s bag: Coconut water and protein bars

If Gary Hallberg is drinking something on the golf course, it’ll likely be coconut water.

“That’s the good stuff,” he said. “It keeps the electrolytes up.”

The 55-year-old from Castle Rock, Colo., makes sure to keep a decent stash of the drink in his golf bag. Anything to stay hydrated.

And full. “I have to keep eating,” he said, laughing.

Hallberg carries as many protein bars as possible — specifically PROBAR and Clif Bar.

What else is in the bag?

His 3-wood, hybrid and irons are made by Adams. He has all Adams sand wedges, too — except for a 56-degree Hopkins sand wedge. There’s a TaylorMade R1 driver and a Rife putter.
