  1. 1. How hot is too hot to play golf (Fahrenheit)?

Recommended Posts

I didn't play today but was at the driving range for about 45 minutes.   It was very hot standing in the direct sunshine.   My car temperature stated 96º.  It would not have been to hot to ride in a cart out of the direct sunshine.    I would not have attempted walking and playing.

pfft.   It was 97 here in Minnesota on Friday and I played.   I go down to Arizona every summer, and usually play in about 110.     no such thing as too hot to golf.   Thats what the beer is for. 

Guess I didn't answer my own question. If I am riding in a cart, I have yet to see a temperature on the high side where I won't play.  I used to be the guy that would put a golf group together to

If you are walking in temps close to 100 degrees (or higher) I both respect you and question your sanity....

Golfed yesterday in 96 degrees.

Golfed 2 or 3 times in about 113 degree weather in Las Vegas. One of those times I got my best (at the time) score of 82. 

In other words, it's never too hot!

    • Day 71 (6/14/21) - Raining today so did slow motion swings indoors checking for correct alignments from A2 thru A7, trying to ingrain the feeling at each position
    • AZ isn’t even in the US. Cool point David. Way to stick to the golf talk. They’ve given 78 million of those shots, too. Like the clotting here it’s an over-reaction, particularly considering infection rates among unvaccinated people. Posting an article meant to provoke is trolling. At least stand for something and share some logic or reason. Your posts here are generally devoid of those. And I’m still not convinced you read beyond headlines, even on your “approved” sites.

    • Worst shot was my first tee shot at the qualifier for my club's 2016 match play.  I had won the 2015 match play, but that doesn't get me a seeding the next year.  It was a stroke play qualifier to seed the match play portion.  I topped my tee shot and it rolled out of bounds.  I missed qualifying by a single stroke. I had an amusingly bad shot a few years later.  I had hooked a shot into the trees and could not advance my ball.  My best play, I thought, was to chip 20 yards backwards (not even sideways) into the fairway.  I pushed my chip and it hit a tree and rebounded ... into the fairway, 30 yards closer to the green than I had started.  Just like I drew it up 🙂  Best shot?  IDK.  I've never holed out from further than 50 yards away, and even that was a lucky shot my first few months playing.  I haven't holed out from further than greenside in years.  My first time holing out from a bunker was for double bogey (back in 2008) and my only other time was more than ten years ago (note:  I have since taken a more active approach to avoid getting into bunkers, so I have fewer opportunities now).  I hit an 8-iron from the fairway a few months ago that finished on the lip of the cup for a tap-in birdie, I'll say that was my best shot in recent memory. I also hit a great 4W two rounds ago as my second shot on a par-5 that led to a 30 yard chip to 6', which I missed.  Those were good shots.
