I don't think I've ever experienced anything past 105 (41C), stay safe Washington, Portland and CA.

Yeah. Thanks. It's cooking up here and supposed to get worse before it gets better. No golf for a few days 'til it cools down a bit for me.

You're missing out, then.  I've played golf in 110, and it can be great.

BUT.

It has to be weather you want in order for you to enjoy it, and you have to take appropriate cautions.  Excess of 100 (559 K), I'll almost always use a riding cart.  I drink plenty of water in any temperature, but I'm more careful to do so -- and I drink more -- in the extra hot weather.  I barely played in the desert last summer, and I don't remember how the courses treated water.  Pre-Covid, lots of the summer courses had plentiful water and ice, and I typically knew where the dispensers were for courses I played regularly.  Of course, sun cautions are important too:  large hat, plenty of sunscreen, and so on.  In this weather, I'd also bring a spray bottle.

But again, it's only nice weather if it's what you want, and you have to be careful during it.

Stay safe everyone experiencing heat.  I'm probably heading out to the desert for the holiday and I'll be sure to enjoy it, but I'll be careful too!

They need to be extra careful. It will be 115 degrees with 28% humidity. Its easy to get heat stroke. 

I wonder what the equivalent is: 90° and 80%?

You hit it almost spot on. I had to pull up an online calculator, but 115 degrees with that low humidity has a heat index around 116 degrees. 

At 90 degrees, its like 84% humidity.

I'm curious how crowded or not the golf courses are in heat wave area. Are people staying in or some braving the heat?

I played in Simi Hills, CA yesterday.  It seemed pretty crowded, although I was in a tournament.  There were plenty of players before and after us and still going off the first tee when my group finished.

Sunday, we still had a busy day. Almost normal play at 95 degrees. Monday it was dead as it hit 100-102, morning wave had like 50-60 players. Even yesterday was slower despite some relief from heat. Today will be back to normal. 

Monday was a pro am day, luckily I had a 7:39 tee off and a cart. Still got really tired that day after the round. 

My high temperature, for the house, was 87. No fun for my long haired mountain dog. Luckily we have space AC units but it can only do so much.

    • Best 92 ever for me. 2nd time on this course that has many elevation changes and hidden hazards. 6 penalty strokes and never really put anything together. But also hit everything solid. I'll take it any day.
    • Day 13 Full swing iron practice with a 6i, 8i and GW.
    • Obviously, if a person made 100% of them on perfect greens, then on substandard greens they would miss putts. So, it would never benefit them.  Let's say a golfer makes 50% of putts on perfect greens, and on bad greens 50% of putts made were deflected away, and 50% of putts missed were deflected in, then their made % would not change.  I don't know we could assume that the green would cause 50% of the putts to miss for the golfer who made 100% on perfect greens, but it would cause a certain % of their putts to miss.  I would say that it hurts the better putters more and maybe doesn't effect bad putters as much. A horrible putter it may never help 😛. If you're not even close for a deflection. 
    • Day 204.  Several times during football Sunday, I took 5-10 minute breaks to hit a few practice balls.  As always, the focus was on the slow correct swings.  I think several small sessions might be better for me than one extended long session:  I don't always have good discipline as I go past the 15 minute mark, and sometimes I catch myself raking in a ball and hitting it right away;  by contrast, when I consciously start a short session, I'm going to at least set in with what I set to do. 
    • (Written without reading anyone else's replies) I voted the difference would increase.  Here's my line of thinking.  The good putter would have been in or close on the ideal surface;  so while the bumps can keep some out, it can also push some that were going to be close into the cup.  Luck at least has a chance to be at least as beneficial as it is hurtful.  By contrast, the poor putters can't really benefit much from luck -- sure, it might cause a ball to finish closer to the cup, but they aren't missing by two bumps instead of one.
