Myself and golfing buddy played in KC last December when it was 32 and breezy. Last weekend we played in 117 heat index. We gave ourselves the self proclaimed, largest temperature spread award for hottest and coldest rounds.
Never been as wet through as I was on Sunday! Started in overcast conditions but by the 13th it was chucking it down. I would say that my Galvin Green jacket did an amazing job, unfortunately I didn't have wet weather trousers on. It's now Wednesday and my 4 golf gloves, bag and headcovers are still drying out!
Heat index will put Raleigh around 110 this weekend. No weather will stop me. I guess i'll switch out the Coronas for waters, extra wet towel and extra gloves and I'm getting 3 rounds in this weekend!!!
Played yesterday at Eagle Ridge in Lakewood, NJ. Temperature hit 103, heat index around 110. We teed off at 8:20 and I lasted 11 holes and 8 bottles of water. I drove my partner around the rest of the 9 and joined the group to play out 18. We had zero breeze for most of the round.
Way TOO hot, and I'll NEVER play in that extreme heat again.
Heat index was right around 100 today. It wasn't too bad though - I stayed well hydrated, SPF'd it up, and we flew through the round. It was nowhere near as bad as yesterday when the heat index was 110+.
Crazy weather... Sun shining to start the morning with no threat of anything other than heat.. Get onto hole 2 and suddenly there's thunder and huge clouds.. Storm hammers through, and then it turns into a sauna..
Wow.. These days it's hard to even predict whether to take an umbrella or a bag of ice..
