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 tend to follow my surroundings and flow with the course (if I have played it before) and don't bother with how long I take to setup. If nothing is rushed, then I am not rushed. I don't sit in the car too long or take a large amount of time getting my gear ready. I judge accordingly, but I really don't like to be rushed. I pay my hard earned money to play just like the next person does. It doesn't take long to setup my equipment and put my shoes on. I am always reasonably well prepared before I even get to the course so if need be, I can be quick on the go. I believe it is all about respect to people and fellow golfers in general. Of course there are those that carry great disrespect for others and could give a rip about anything which usually bring challenges to what may be a good golf game.  Some weeks ago, me and a buddy played a course and there was a foursome that were in front of us at the first Tee that actually warmed up and stretched on the Tee box delaying those behind them! There were no less than two groups waiting behind us. After quite a wait and seeing this was not going to change, we decided to start on the 10 hole and while we drove the cart over to 10 (we could see #1 tee box from 10) and got set up on the tenth hole we could see they still had not finished. What is really bad is we tee'd up and drove our balls and two of them were still not finished!
    • One thing I will add is if your swing speed is 80-82 with a 6 iron, I doubt u hit it 196. Hit outside and check some more places for launch etc... but don’t do anything to the clubs yet.
    • I’m a believer in the arms being responsible for a lot of swing speed, but yes. It feels a lot less ‘movement’ was able to generate good power. However I began to think that my actual SS wasn’t really improving. It was the quality of strike. My conventional swing can be all over the face with an in to out and out to in path ( more likely out to in). With this swing I was almost always in to out and near the middle of the club face. So I think I was just hitting better shots. Again, JV would never provide any data from himself nor any students showing increases in SS.  I don’t have a problem with having a 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 swing. It’s the ‘10’ different that seemed ridiculous to me. I’ll never use a 4i to hit the ball 20yds.
    • i saw your post on Golf wrx from November 30.  You might have wanted to add that according to what you wrote there you bought the clubs already.

    • It probably takes me around 5 minutes from the time my car pulls in till I can be on the tee and ready to hit.  I never wear my golf shoes and drive.  Takes me a minute to wear the shoes, then about 2 to 3 minutes to get my cart and bag set up.  Then another minute or so to get all the stuff out of the bag that I need. However, I am always fairly quick on the course, and have never found myself to be the cause of latency in any group I am playing with. I like to get to the course at least 15 minutes before I have to tee off to give myself at least 5 minutes to warm up and stretch before I start playing.  I find it really makes a difference to my game.
