Patrick Reed recently won the Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia and there's controversy surrounding the 2018 champion's use of the medication Vyvanse to treat his ADHD. In this mini Distraction, Dr. Hallowell weighs in with his thoughts on the debate.
And while on the subject of pro golfers with ADHD, Dr. Hallowell also makes a plea to Bubba Watson to get in touch with him so he can offer some strategies for dealing with his ADHD, as it is widely known that Bubba does not take medication to treat his symptoms.
