    Rain gloves on both hands, those cool towel things and lots of water. There also happens to be water in beer.

    Hydrate like crazy at least one day prior. Light breathable fabric for clothes, solar sleeves work well for me as well (they actually feel cooler than bare skin).

    If it's really hot I'll deploy the 'chilly pad' shammy-like towel around my neck between shots. Other than that, just be smart, no shame in cutting a round short of you feel "off"... get inside and get some water/fruit

    Bring a towel and a container of ice/water to dip the towel in and put on your head and neck to cool down

    The easiest answer is to only play 9 during these hot summer days.

    Very underrated answer.

    I had an old golf coach tell me to wear rain gloves in the FL summer heat since we sweat so much.

    I'm not at that point, luckily, I can use 1 glove the whole round while a buddy might have 6 gloves airing out Velcroed to the cart.

    All this talk of heat and humidity makes me sick to my core, hate the stuff. Get me in mid 60's to 70's with a light breeze, that is wear whatever you want weather

    That may be the most miserable place on earth, that time of year. Played for 4 days straight in August around the Orlando. Iíve never been so glad to eat back to GA to get away from the heat lol.

    I gave these gloves a try because my leather gloves were getting waterlogged from all the sweat and humidity. Happy to report that they work great. You wonít need cord grips with these.

    As for the body and dehydration and overheating... I struggle with that too. Canít seem to drink enough fluids. Iím okay walking 9, but 18 is a killer! Iím too stiff in the morning to play real early, which I was in the habit of doing a couple years ago... Itís a conundrum!

    100% agree with this piece of advice. Wearing a traditional leather golf in hot/humid conditions is worthless. As others mentioned, ice towel around the neck is good too.

    Others have said it - begin hydrating the day before, if you can, and on the golf day, keep drinking! I use the "chamois" type towel around my neck, and also keep my golf cap wet. At the first sign of feeling uncomfortable, tell your playing partners, get off the course, find some shade or air conditioning, and DRINK water or a gatorade-type drink. Don't wait until its too late.

    Hydrate.

    When the temps are that high, no alcohol or nicotine. Have a good mix of sports drinks and water. You should be consuming enough fluids where you need to go to the bathroom every 2ish hours.

    Snacks are also critical.

    If you walk, have a push cart or something that let's you load up and not have to carry it. Otherwise strongly recommend riding.

    Morning rounds help a lot, but when few burns off its warm from the extra humidity as well.

    I do just the opposite. I try to go out at 1600 that way it's hot when I start, then by the time I start heating up, the temps start to cool off and I start to feel better.

    As for dealing with the heat, I'd say you're on track. Lots of water and G2 (less sugar). Sometimes, I'll get a couple cubes of ice from the (hot... sometimes) cart girl and put them in my cap. Maybe a wet towel. Anything to keep you from getting too hot really. Just remember, you want to keep sweating. If you're not sweating, that's when the real trouble starts.

    I play in that type of heat regularly in August here in rural Ottawa, Canada. 35* and 100% humidity is common (I believe thatís similar to your 100 weird fake degrees). I drink about 4L of water on course those days. Iíll drink a cup of water before I go, and usually half of my 4L of water starts as ice. That plus lots of sunscreen and trying to stand in shade make it fine. Plus lots of snacks.
