glad I ran across this thread. I ordered a pair from Amazon after my recent run in with bee stings. Probably wont  have any deterrent  on bees, but should help against sun damage. I also have skin problems (Psoriasis?) not sure what to call it, just itchy scaly skin. I don't think these are compression sleeves, but maybe one could wear a compression sleeve on top of one of them?

not sold on the copper fit thing though.

Because it's an absolute scam? ;-)

I think if I were to do this I would just wear my long sleeve fishing shirts under my golf shirt.  They are very breathable and do an amazing job of protecting against the sun.  I like the AFTCO brand shirts.

I sometimes play in those Columbia fishing shirts.  They are pretty good for hot weather.

Just for the halibut...I ordered a pair of the Elixir sleeves. they feel great. Now I know why women (and some men?) wear hosiery. Might help with muscle fatigue, but I would imagine is in effect a placebo.

Looking for an alternative to greasy sun block.  Anyone using UV arm sleeves, and if so any brand recommendations?

South Korean players often wear long pants and sleeves

Could be. My old boss was a woman from China and she wore those sleeves when golfing.

It's cultural there. Tans were for the working class who worked outside, or something like that. There's a reason Geishas wear white makeup. I think they feel pale = beauty.

Definitely going to try out some UV sleeves.  Any recommendations on brand, quality, sizes, etc.

I don't have problems with the sun but IMHO, you would be way better off with sun blocking clothes than slathering sun screen all over. Who knows what all the chemicals in that stuff could cause down the road.

My buddy has had a couple of small encounters with skin cancer. So, he needs to apply a prescription sunscreen before we go out to play. His complaint is that it doesn't allow his skin to breathe. He suffers the whole round on a hot day.

Well, he bought me a "Loop Card", a card that gives you discounts at some local golf courses. So, I bought him a couple of canisters of Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunscreen at 100 SPF. It's supposed to be very light feeling, and I bought the spray, which he seems to prefer.

We're supposed to play Thursday, which will be when I give them to him, and may not be a sunny day. Alberto VO5 is headed our way. So it may not be a true test. We'll see what happens.

@iacas Have you tried those sleeves you linked? I’ve been getting burnt at work even with sunscreen, cause sometimes a few hours go by and I forget to reapply. For $10 if they’re good I’ll snag a few pairs.

    • Last episode aired here last night. Despite never being a big fan i thought they ended it ok, certainly in a way to keep most happy by keeping the popular characters alive and all rulers/leaders in some way or another.
    • I’ve just bought some used clubs (RSI1 irons) and I love them, took them to the range and I’ve noticed they are an inch longer than my previous and feel a lot more upright at adress, Is it possible to get these clubs fitted to suit my swing or is is that not possible?, I also read a more upright club usually produces more of a hook/draw, where as I was hitting mostly fades, why is that thanks
    • Unfortunately, number of majors was not Jack's first attempt at setting the criteria for GOAT so your tennis speculation doesn't really fit.  As has been documented here several times, he went through several different criteria, over the years, discarding each one it became clear he would not be the GOAT under any of them.  He didn't stay an amateur and replicate Bobby Jones' version of the slam.  He didn't exceed Hogan's 3 out of three majors in 1953 by winning a professional slam.  He didn't exceed Sam Snead's record of most PGA Tour victories.  But each of these was put forth by him as what it would take to be considered the greatest of all time - right up until it turned out he couldn't do them. Then, once he ALREADY had the most majors he decides that most majors is the proper criteria, totally ignoring the fact that he had already had the opportunity to play in far more majors than anyone else conceivably in the GOAT discussion. I only recount this abbreviated version of this history, which elsewhere has been laid out in more detail with links to each of Jack's twists and turns, because you indicated a lack of familiarity with some of this history.  You can choose to be generous in looking at how Majors came to be the all in all but I cannot.  Tiger may have many many more flaws and failings as a person than Jack, but, IMO, in the strict realm of golf he has shown far more integrity than Jack.  Tiger has never once tried to re-define the criteria for GOAT, in some self serving way, as Jack did.  Meanwhile, on a more important topic, GO LIVERPOOL!!! I already have my tickets for their upcoming friendly here in the US against Borussia Dortmund at Notre Dame's football stadium in July.  I hope I will be seeing them as reigning Champions League champions. Wait, how can you not believe in the whole concept of GOAT yet have an opinion as to the equation used to find the GOAT?
    • What a moronic comment. Rory could have won it if he'd shot 10 under. Or anyone else. Koepka would've lost if he'd tripled 18. Tiger would've won if he'd made the cut and finished 9 under. How did DJ "give it away"? Do you think he decided he couldn't be bothered. He was under pressure on a tough course. Your comments make as much sense as saying "Brooks could've shot 61 on round two if he hadn't left 5 putts short and they'd gone in. I would love to see a debate between you and DJ where you explain to him that he "gave it away". What response would you expect? It's easy from the armchair.
