    Drink water even if you are not thirsty. Dehydration weakens the body quickly and really messes with your judgement.

    [QUOTE=golfinnut;6191729]Don't play! LOL

    Take it from me. I've learned in the past year that I can't play when it's that hot out. I sweat so much, I can't replenish the fluids fast enough. I have been a victim of heat stroke twice now ... both times sent me to the hospital for fluids. One was at a THP Event, so others can tell you it's not fun.

    But if you insist on playing then, you must hydrate days beforehand. And when you think you have drank enough, keep drinking because I assure you, you haven't. Avoid alcohol at all costs. Wear one of those cooling towels around your neck. Wear light clothing. All the obvious things really. But you don't think they are obvious until after you forgotten about them. Know the signs of dehydration ... Very dry skin, Feeling dizzy, Rapid heartbeat, Rapid breathing, Sunken eyes, Sleepiness, lack of energy, confusion or irritability.[/QUOTE]

    I call that "Thursday".

    Big brimmed straw hat helps a lot. Let the heat escape and the air move around your dome. Agree, the no cotton rule is in effect, wear thin, light breathable clothes.

    I use wicking solar sleeves. In SC it is 100 with 85% humidity. Drink all day to keep hydrated. Sun screen sun screen sun screen. Moisture wicking shirts, shorts and sleeves make all the difference. I bought my solar sleeves at TGW.com

    I don't typically play in seriously hot and humid conditions but the few times I have in Georgia or Florida I drink plenty of water/gatorade and stay in the shade whenever possible. A cooling towel works wonders on the back of the neck as well. I also carry several gloves and will change throughout the round. Once I played with a guy that had this spray that he sprayed on his hands that basically stopped them from sweating. Can't remember what it was called but it actually worked really well!

    I start breaking it out this time of year and it's like I've sprayed my hands with glue. Unfortunately I still sweat so profusely I have to reapply it every couple of holes.

    If it's that sticky, I will use my rain gloves. As they absorb the sweat, they grip better. It's especially useful when I'm at the range in high humidity. there isn't a lot of air moving around in the covered stalls.

    Water and snacks. Getting in the shade as much as possible.

    I barely ever ride, but I don't mess with humidity. When we get our 3-4 weeks of 90-100% humidity, I grab a cart.

    Nuun electrolyte tabs are awesome. I used to drink G2 Gatorade but that still had a lot of sugar. The Nuun tabs are easy to keep in your bag and drop in a cold water to keep hydrated. There are a lot of flavors to choose form also. I also just bought a boonie hat for the hot summer days and it works well.
