I try to eat light before and during a tournament. I have found I play poorly when stuffed from either breakfast or lunch.

So as I am frantically running around organizing equipment on a tournament morning I eat not at all or something that is easy, fast and portable, like toast. I do drink really strong coffee but that is every morning, not just tournaments.

Lunch is whatever is easy, usually fast food, since I never take the time to pack a lunch.

I don't eat during rounds. I don't need the energy, I have plenty stored away and it's too distracting to bother with.

After the tournament I am happy to pig out. I also drink beer after the rounds either in celebration or condolence.
Yeah, I'm not big on breakfast anyway, but at lunch I can't eat more than a sandwich or some chicken fingers. Once I eat alot I just feel like a big turd and my game reflects that. I'll always offer to buy my competition a big greasy pizza or somthing real filling with a few beers. I Like to watch them suffer especially on a nice hot day.
For breakfast I usually have an energy drink and a couple power bars (the trail mix ones). I will have one energy drink and power bar on the drive, and another of each during my warm up before the first round. Between rounds I usually find a subway for a 6 inch sub. I have often considered packing a lunch in a cooler, with a couple of lunch meat sandwiches.
Jesus Heavy D! 3 energy drinks, and 4 power bars before the first round?!! I would be in convulsions on the way to a heart attack at the 2 minute horn. No wonder you are always so gitty before tournaments. Haha

Depends on what city/course I am at. A lot of the time it is Subway. $5 foot longs! Eat half and you can look forward to the other half after the round with a tasty beer.
I use the same regimen for disc golf that my trainer set up for me when I played junior hockey, this is what I do and why:

1 Lay out every thing you'll need for the tournament the night before (including the cloths you will wear), then get to bed early and once you lay down try not to think about the tournament or how to play each hole on the round, this is your rest time the less you focus on the tournament the more refreshed you be when you wake up.

2 Get up early enough to not feel rushed.

3 I eat high carbs 3-4hrs before I play, this allows me to not feel bloated and your energy will spike just before you start throwing. The great thing about Carbs is that they don't burn out fast so you will keep going through the round. I usually eat pasta with some type of light sauce (stay away from heavy cream), If its a early star I eat something like pancakes, and toast. Stay away from foods high in fat content.

4. Get to the course early enough to warm up with both drives, putts and midrange throws. I like to take about 15-20min after my warm up to just sit quietly off some were and think of the round that I want to play, how the wind will play into shots. This usually puts me in game mode and then I'm ready to go.

I also snack a lot when things get backed up, I like to carry sunflower seeds with me and some times trail mix. Also drink a lot of water this will help fight muscle fatigued.

Hope this helps!

On tournament days, I try to eat a hearty breakfast with lots of carbs. I usually have a sandwich or burger at lunch - whatever is available at the course or nearby. I carry raisins, sunflower seeds, Cliff Bars, pretzels and other salty snacks to eat during the round. I only drink water, no sports or energy drinks. Sometimes I will add Emergen-C to my water. I find my game suffers when I don't get enough to eat. When the power in my drives drops, or I start throwing worm burners, I know I need to eat something ASAP. No matter how much breakfast or lunch I eat, it never seems to carry me through the whole round during tournaments.

However, if I am just golfing casually, a light breakfast and just a small snack between rounds seems to hold me over for an entire day of disc golf - usually 36 to 54 holes. If I did that for a tournament, I wouldn't make it through 9 holes, let alone two rounds of golf.
I have only played in a handful of tourneys, so I don't know if I have a set way of doing things yet, but I do hunt and fish alot and look at it the same way. Get up in plenty of time to not be rushed is a big one. I take a vitamin regiment every morning including B complex which is a big part of my day. Light breakfast, usually bacon and egg sandwich on the way and coffee. In between rounds I try not to eat anything bigger than a 6in sandwich and usually don't finish it and drink plenty of water/vitamin water. Of course the beer flows after rounds...hell sometimes between round depending on how bad I play!
Best LIGHT meal between rounds?

PAD THAI

Good luck finding it though. My wife learned how to make it from a local Thai food restaurant.
really depends on how I am feeling. Normally run and grab some fast food but there are some courses where you have to bring a sack lunch. Made a mistake one time of letting my friends convinve me to go to a steak house. Well needless to say, the Innova microfleece towels make great, soft toilet paper. This was nefore I carried my own actuall Tp. Lesson learned. ha

Moral of this story: If you see a towel or other garment in the woods off the beaten path of the course, NEVER pick it up.
