For those that refer to construction trades as well as others who routinely work in the sun, it’s worth realizing that a lot of them are subject to dress requirements imposed by their employers for safety reasons...

I found an adhesive absorbent insert to put in the brim of my hat that helps with that issue. 

I think I did a member review for one of these a while back;  I can try to dig up the review if anyone is interested (I think the review comes from a previous iteration of the board software).  The item was Lid Liners and they held up amazingly well, even through two rounds in August in Palm Desert.

Yes and to keep debris off themselves in addition to the sun.

I think the ones I have are called "No Sweat Golf Hat Liner" but they do work very well. The band on my golf hat is not adjustable but the liner doesn't seem to make the hat too snug. Great product.

I wear nothing but a speedo and high top golf shoes. And I feel marvelous.

I found a video of @Vinsk in his outfit! I think you were in Vegas.

I got the cooling sleeves and tried them out today. They didn’t feel hotter or cooler, but the did keep my arms dryer. I only used them hitting into my net but will try them on the course. Thanks for the reco @Shindig!

I wish there was a poll here with data on walkers vs riders and pants vs shorts. If you're walking, you're gonna sweat.

I walk 90%+ of the time and always wear long pants and UV sleeves.  I do wet my UV sleeves sometimes, which really helps cool off.  But I have no problem with my Adidas 365 (my bad for incorrect numbering before) long pants.

Looking at pants the past week or so, has anyone had experience with the Amazon brand moisture wicking pants?  Are they any good for golf?

I have a pair.  They are good, especially for the price.  Can't speak to how they perform in the heat and humidity.  I'm too smart to wear pants in the summer.

I'm afraid to ask what you do wear in the summer.

Tiga Tiga plays golf in his speedo.  Good for you not to ask.

Not necessarily.

Some people sweat less than others. Or in different places.

Good point. My legs never did sweat much. From the waist up was another story!

In the 1980's?!  In NE Ohio?! You have to be kidding! Besides, that doesn't address the old-timer's comment, "That sun will kill you, boy!"

I haven't had on a pair of pants since February!! The only time I am in pants playing golf is when I am playing in a PGA tour event...which is NEVER :-) Shorts for me!

    • Hi All! I started really making an effort to improve my game this summer. Took a couple of lessons and really started to make good contact with the irons and stop pulling the ball. Getting confident there. Now, I'm having a crazy issue with the driver.  The last time I was hitting my driver straight-ish, I had the ball way farther back in my stance than seemed natural for a driver, basically in the middle of my stance. The ball would be low but for the most part straight. I moved the ball forward in my stance, and all hell has broken loose. Now every shot with the driver is a hard, low-arcing hook that starts way left and stays way left. My swing with the driver doesn't feel comfortable at all. I'm going to take another lesson and ask about it, but I was wondering if any of you had had a similar experience. Any advice would be appreciated.
    • Actually he did. They have two of the booths with the screens that show your ball flight and all the numbers they use. He had some other electronic device he was using behind me. This place is a really nice golf course with 27 holes, plus a really nice practice facility. They are supposed to be the best in Wisconsin for club fitting. It took me all day to get there, get this done and drive back. I sure do hope it works out!
    • At least the guy in the store didn't tell you that you were standing too close to the ball after you hit it.  Old joke.
    • I have played Ping GI (GMax) for the past three years. I also start my irons at 6i. I made sure they were a good fit at the time I bought them.  Mine are Ping, red, senior shaft.  I, too, had some difficult getting used to those shafts. I had used steel shafts for decades. It took a while of practicing my 6i,7i and 9i, one club at a time  My coach tore down my swing with these clubs to the basics to get to the level of confidence I have now. We videoed everything, including grip for each club.  We discussed the target range and loft of each clubs.  While you are tending, I think, to see these clubs as a "set", I was told to treat these as individual clubs only.   I have also used tape and spray to mark just about every practice shot I took.  And for a while I need every shot to look for patterns (I tend to hit more towards the toe.) After I examined the markings, the pattern of mis-hits was clear and that gave my coach a clear view of what needed correction. As well, we took it down to position of the face of the club at every point of the swing. We slowed down the swing until I felt comfortable with it. Finally, everything was combined into the swing I now use. Finally, we looked at any changes I might make for each of the clubs.  It took about a month of this kind of steady practice.  Now I am happy with the shots around 90% of the time. Like you, I do choke up a bit on these clubs more than my 3 hybrids.  As many have said, there could be many reasons these are not working for you. I suggest making a video and posting it on line here at TST.  
    • I know I still have a long, long way to go but this is my before swing:   Cutting way across the ball, weak slices, shanks, over the top, out to in - you name it horrible, horrible. Then after one evolvr lesson 6 days later:    Still not pretty at all, but my instructor has got my grip stronger (with my right hand at least, still working on my left hand) and I've got a sensation of trying to leave the club face more closed throughout the swing and bowing the lead wrist more, even though I'm not in reality. Ive had dramatic improvements in ball flight. Hitting a mix of straight shots, draws and occasional hooks now, and all but eliminated slicing, Gained a lot of distance too. It's turned things around for me to be honest. Now I am working on strengthening the grip with the left hand, turning out my left foot and angling my neck to match my shoulders, as per my instructors advice. Any further suggestions welcomed. Im pretty sure Im flipping the club a lot and adding loft.
