I started out playing golf without eating anything during a round.
Then I started to grab something at the turn. And at first, that used to be my case (see highlighted section below). Whenever I would grab something to eat at the turn, my score would suffer for the next few holes. Turns out, it was because I ate too much at the turn.
Now, I would grab a couple of protein drinks and put them in my bag. I drink one every 6 holes. Sometimes I would also grab some almonds.
I do notice the difference when I don't have anything during a round. My score suffers the last few holes as I get tired and lethargic.

I always walk. I eat FULL right before I leave my house. I'm usually hungry by the 6th hole lol. I have done it but I was losing so much focus on golf. The golf bag you move around and stopping every minute to hit the shot. Eating while riding a cart makes sense. Store food in the cart and eat while your buddies hit but it's harder when your walking. When I have a large group in front it takes 5hours to finish a round and I can't afford to eat at the golf restaurant so that's more than 6hrs of no food.
Now I think about it I should buy those mini size chocolate bars but I think they melt in the heat. I don't want a mess all over my hand. Small crackers maybe?
EDIT: I guess the question I"m asking is, am I the only one who doesn't eat while playing golf.
