Keeping cool during the summer

Ned

Just curious, what are some tips y'all use to keep cool during the summer while on the course. I was gifted a Titleist Aussie hat and I must say it is by far the best "shade" hat I've ever had. I like to wet the top of the hat and it keeps my head nice and cool. I generally take it off on the tee box or when I'm taking full swings on the course. The brim doesn't really get in the way, but its more of a mental thing for me. Its a must have on the range or practice green. I have also started using a "chill towel" and love that also. As far as summer shirts go, even though I love the FJ shirts my go to now is the Peter Millar summer comfort shirt. Very light and breathable.

    Drink lots of water before and during the round. Try and pick earlier in the morning or later in the day to play.

    +1 for the "chill towel". I use a Mission Enduracool towel, the one endorsed by Dwyane Wade. It is awesome. I bought it when I went to watch the US Senior Open at Oak Tree in Oklahoma. It was 100+ that week. Worked like a charm then and still does now. I throw it in my cooler and pull it out every few holes and wet my neck/head/face/forearms and it really helps rejuvenate you. Great on those hot summer days. I throw it in the wash when I get home and it's ready to go next time.

    drink more water than you think you need. i try to stuff a few half litre bottles in my bag (i can jam 4 in there) and then a powerade,gatorade or the like, two if i can. i'll drink it all in 18 holes.

    I like the "chil" towels, they feel wonderful. Water is also extremely important. I really like the ZipFizz powders to go into a bottle of water to replace electrolytes; no sugars and they really taste great.
