Probably much less of an effect than the symptoms it will relieve.

Yep. If you're not feeling well and taking it makes you feel better, it will improve your game! :-D

Except you will be disqualified because I'm calling the course and telling them you're on PEDs!!!!!!!!!

Kidding ... I take Advil before every round of golf because I have disc issues in my back.  Not taking it would affect my game a lot more than taking it.

Now, if you said you were in a lot of pain and were considering vicodin or percocet or something of that ilk???   I would strongly recommend against it!  I'm a big guy (6-3, 260) and that stuff makes me all wacky!  I avoid it at all costs.

Good luck!

I eat that stuff like peanuts.  It's hell to get old......

.....but it beats the heck out of the alternative!

Taking tylenol before a round ensures at least a round of 100+.  Take with caution!

Or at least that is my excuse when I shoot that high..

I know many golfers who take pain killer before every round. I think it will have little significance on your score.

I take 3 Advil as soon as I roll out of the bed when I have an early tee time.   If it's late in the day and I'm squeezing in a few holes before dark, not so much.

You should be fine - try to concentrate on your game and not the fact you have it in your system.. this will probably only serve to cause a reverse 'placebo'! Good luck.

I have some arthritis and always take a couple of Ibuprofen before I tee off.  Sure helps.

It's tylenol. Unless you have liver failure it's not going to effect your game much more than remember what you are for dinner last night.

Tried two Aleve for the first time Thursday morning before playing. It cured my two month old backache completely! That stuff is good medicine.

2,3,4 advil ?....pffft. you guys are amateurs. id never consider less than 6 when my back hurts and will go 8 without thinking twice. then take 8 at the turn. tylenol is like water, it does zero for me. now if you wanna talk oxy, those help the most and 2 will make me cross eyed 25 minutes after taking them and will last 2 holes, then it wears off a bit and pain is gone

I'm not starting a drug debate here, but you do realize that 16 Advils within the 3 hour period of time that you are talking about would likely cause you some serious issues and sickness -- especially if this type of behavior is repeated often.

I have 3 herniated discs in my back and low-grade Spondylolisthesis (12 years of football). For me, the Sciatica pain from the discs can't even be subsided with Oxy, Percs or Vics. Unfortunately, it's more or less stretching and trying to take OTC drugs that are not as potent so I don't damage my liver, because I love my beer as well.

Anyway, for anyone else with back pain (lower, mid, upper), I recommend trying Bayer Back and Body . Just read the label carefully to make sure you're able to take it. It also has caffeine in it as well, so be sure that you're not overly sensitive prior to trying it. This is the one and only drug that takes a slight edge off of my pain and it boggles my mind because it's no where near as potent as prescription pain meds.

EDIT: Not trying to derail the thread, though it seems that the OP already has their answer. I just know that many other golfers with pain will be reading so I wanted help the rest of the readers out if possible.

      I'm no expert - that's for sure - but every once in a while I look at a swing and have to ask myself .. how are you a 17.7 !?!.  How long have you been playing?  What's your driving distance?  It could be just camera angles or the fact that I'm not much of an expert on other people's swing issues . .but it looks to me like your swing is pretty good!  I'd trade ya. 
    • Lowest score you've seen?
      I have played in a couple of the pro-am tournaments that the local pro tour, The Dakotas Tour puts on.  I played with a former winner of the tournament and watched him fire off a 65.  Watching him and some of the other pros play is fun.  He shot a 65 which was best of the day and you would have thought by his reactions he was over par.  He wasn't being a baby about anything, but he just knew it could have been a more special round as he lipped out 4-5 birdie putts as well.  Those guys have a different mentality when it comes to scores, but its fun to watch them plot their way around the course when they are playing for a livelihood.  This is the same tour that Tom Hoge came and played an event in his hometown of Fargo, ND last August.  He didn't win it either, took 2nd or 3rd I think.
    • Lowest score you've seen?
      Ive seen some pretty low ones, but i feel like the most impressive round I've seen was a -4 or -5 round this guy i played with shot in sectional US open qualifying a few years ago. I don't remember his name - he may have just been a mini-tour or web.com player. But he had never seen the course before that morning. Really impressive.

      Sorry if I missed it, but I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere yet:   Game Golf, which uses sensors on the butt end of each club and a wearable GPS device to track yardages, accuracy and efficiency for every shot you hit in a round, is adding a pin placement feature to its software that will allow users to position the hole in its precise location on every green. The company says the result will be enhanced accuracy on putting and short game distance statistics. “A database of pin locations does not exist in golf, so we are building the world’s first and most robust set of accurate data on pin placements and putting for the amateur golfer,” says Game Golf CEO John McGuire. “We’ve put the control for pin placement back in the users’ hands. The big deal is that the next players to play the course on the same day will see automatically accurate pin placements and can truly plan their game strategies.”     http://www.golfdigest.com/story/game-golf-now-giving-you-pin-placement-option-chance-for-dollar1-million     and   New Pin Placement Feature:
      The first advancement not only helps golfers track more accurate putting stats from specific pin placements, but also helps other golfers who will play the same course on the same day. Using GAME GOLF LIVE or the GAME GOLF App, the new Pin Placement feature allows golfers to select the edit button on their phones, zoom in on each green and drag the pin to its precise location, resulting in putting stats that are 100 percent accurate on every green. "We track more data on more golfers on more golf courses worldwide than any other company," added McGuire. "A database of pin locations does not exist in golf, so we are building the world's first and most robust set of accurate data on pin placements and putting for the amateur golfer. With this advancement, we've put the control for pin placement back in the users' hands. The big deal is that the next players to play the course on the same day will see automatically accurate pin placements and can truly plan their game strategies." The new feature also allows for precise adjustment of ball locations on the green relative to the pin, further enhancing the accuracy of the data. The pin placement feature is currently available on iOS (iPhone) platforms and coming very soon to Android systems.   http://www.worldgolf.com/newswire/browse/92198-GAME-GOLF-LIVE-ANNOUNCES-MAJOR-UPGRADES
