I'm just curious how many golfers store their clubs in their car. There are several schools of thought regarding this practice. My own situation makes it difficult to tote my clubs back and forth from condo to car. I have to carry my bag (which is a full load) down two very long hallways and ride an elevator three floors to my parking spot. Keeping the bag in the car just seems easier. But here in the Florida sun, my car heats up quickly as it's on the garage rooftop with no shade. This compromises the glue in my grips and the hosel. Plus has the potential to shorten the life of my balls.

In the past few months, I have been experimenting with a prototype cover for my bag which has lowered the bag temperature dramatically in my car. 

If anyone is interested in knowing more about this heat reduction development, let me know.

The Florida sun is no joke, especially in the summer.  With that said, the trunk is a better option than in the cabin if you have to leave your bag in your car.  I avoid leaving anything valuable in my car for fear of theft and I consider my clubs valuable.  My truck doesn't have a trunk, but even then its just something I don't even chance. 

The other heat sensitive item has got to be shoes. You will be on the golf course one day and the bottoms will just fall right off.

I think leaving the clubs in the car where it’s hot contributes to the classic sliding down of the ferrule. I’m sure the glue/epoxy gets soft after long exposure to heat. Then we take our clubs out and start whacking away and …there you go.

This is probably the most problematic statement. 🤣

The device I'm developing will easily accommodate your shoes.

Had a friend who left his clubs in the car, always used the same head covers on his woods, and only brought them in the house with the rain cover on. 

Heat from the wife is worse than the sun. 

 

🤣

    • If it was a hockey fight BD would turtle in seconds.
    • How are you supposed to classify worst ever? How many times have I yanked out of the swing, left the face open, and hit a wild push-slice OB or lost? What makes one worse than the other? 🤣
    • +1. The mRNA vaccines at least have been shown nearly as effective against Delta as original. So, highly effective. Our problem is anti-vaxxers (both classic and Trumpist) and the public policy legacy of Reagan where a huge proportion of people will miss bills and whatnot if they can't work because of side effects, so haven't gotten it even though they want to. If we got to 80-90% immunized with current vaccine the pandemic would almost totally end in the US, at least until a vaccine escaping variant pops up somewhere.
    • You just posted what looks to be relatively current information.  It seems somewhere between possible and likely that boosters will be advisable, but details are lacking as variants keep occurring and data is continually being collected.  Stay tuned.  What seems more important is that more and more people get vaccinated to slow the spread and decrease the likelihood of additional variants.  
    • I had a worst shot yesterday. Our 2some invited the 3some behind us to join us to play #9, the last hole of our round. It was a 152 yd par 3,fairly straight forward. Wanting to make a good showing to the 3some, I hit first. I was having a decent round, but I topped the ball 50 yds then slinked back to my cart. I did get a bogie, and strangely enough, nobody bettered the 4.
