Let me add a sunscreen recommendation as well.  Blue Lizard is always excellent, but I have migrated to Australian Gold Botanical as my go to sunscreen.  The regular SPF 50 version simply does not come off and seems to protect very well.  The SPF 50 face formulation works fantastic as well, but unless some of you guys trend metro the matte tint might challenge your manhood. LOL!

Are these sunscreens full of the parobens or whatever those chemicals are that are bad?  I use sunscreen every time I play but my understanding is that not all are created equal and that some might even be harmful.
Active ingredients are Ti oxide and Zinc oxide.  I am pretty sure no avobenzone, oxyacrilate, etc... (the bad stuff in the cheap sunscreens that turns your whites to yellow) are used.

You buy off amazon or where do you go?

CVS pharmacy carries it.  I have not found it elsewhere, but it is probably available online as well.

Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

Never considered sleeves before, need to look into this.

After reading this thread I broke down and ordered some sleeves off amazon. According to the page they keep the surface of your skin 2 degrees cooler as well. I'm excited to try them out!

I live in AZ.  For the last 5 years or so I always use sleeves, a bucket hat, zinc or ti oxide sunscreen on my nose/face/neck, cheap 30 spf sunscreen on my legs.  And I reapply sunscreen at the turn.  I still got squamous on my nose.  Had it cut out last year; luckily got it in one scoop.

I like the Pearl Izumi sleeves.  The top band has rubber strips and they stay up great.  I also use these sleeves when I mountain bike.  They stay put.  I'm 5' 10" 160 lbs and the medium fit me well.

I use the Sensitive Blue Lizard formula as I have sensitive skin (I get a really bad burning sensation when using most sunscreens... blue lizard does not do this to me) and it's paraben free and fragrance free.  Blue Lizard works wonders.  Its the last thing I do before I get in the car to drive to the course. I then use a Neutrogena spray somewhere around hole 9.  Depends on sun intensity and how much sweating I have already done.  May reapply on hole 5 or 6 and again on the back or wait will 9 or 10.

When the sun starts getting really intense here in the Desert I also use SARX solar sleeves.  That def. helps.  I should use them every round, but, well, I don't.

Sensitive Blue Lizard is great; I don't have sensitive skin, but I still use it.

And it's nice that it's readily available in local stores. If I unexpectedly have run out before a round, can easily grab some before heading to the course.

Shetla Hats are awesome. The brim is stiff in the front so it won’t flop around in the wind.

I use Hanes Cool Dri  long sleeve, crewneck undershirts SPF 50. I think I got them at Walmart. They do a good job of keeping me cool and blocking the sun on the arms and in the V of my shirt.  You can get a surprising amount of sun there.  My nephew, who fishes, uses a balaclava as well as the fishing sun shirts. The balaclava might be a little distracting.

Hats are all opaque, so get what you like with a brim. Saw Ben Crane covered up pretty well in a big hat at the Fort Worth Invitational.  Who knew he was so sensible.

This thread has has a lot of talk about shirts (or undershirts) with SPF protection.  So my Travis Mathews shirts aren't enough?  I don't put sunblock on my shoulders because I always figured the shirt was all I needed.  

Please tell me if I'm being foolish.

I use Hanes Cool Dri  long sleeve, crewneck undershirts SPF 50. I think I got them at Walmart. They do a good job of keeping me cool and blocking the sun on the arms and in the V of my shirt.  You can get a surprising amount of sun there.  My nephew, who fishes, uses a balaclava as well as the fishing sun shirts. The balaclava might be a little distracting.

Hats are all opaque, so get what you like with a brim. Saw Ben Crane covered up pretty well in a big hat at the Fort Worth Invitational.  Who knew he was so sensible.

This thread has has a lot of talk about shirts (or undershirts) with SPF protection.  So my Travis Mathews shirts aren't enough?  I don't put sunblock on my shoulders because I always figured the shirt was all I needed.  

Please tell me if I'm being foolish.
No, I think the SPF rating on shirts and sleeves measure the effectiveness of the shirt itself to block the sun.

As a melanoma survivor I try to be very cautious of my sun exposure.  The last 3 years I have been using Skin suncreen with good results and wearing pants every time even during summer.  I have a couple of light pull overs I have been using to cover my arms but will definitely look into buying some sleeves.  I admit that I try to only play golf early in the day during the summer and try to play more during the cooler months of the year.

When fishing I always use a orvis neck gaiter, tilley hat, and long sleeved orvis fishing shirt to cover my arms.

I've seen different suggestions for hats that are interesting,  but I am curious if anyone out there wears a high quality straw hat, and how long they look good for. Right now I use a wide brimmed titlest bucket hat, but a high quality straw hat looks good IMO. In the 1990's, to early 2000's there seemed to be a lot of straw hats worn and for sale.  Now there are few of them around.

Thanks for your thoughts.

I wear a wide brimmed straw hat similar to the one David Leadbetter wears. They are manufactured by Ahead or American Dry Goods. You can get rough a year out of one. The black band starts to fade due to the exposure to the sun. When I replace the hat, I use the previous one in the early spring and late fall, and when there's a chance for rain. Basically, it becomes my scrub hat.

Yeah, finding them can be a bit of a challenge. I picked one up on the RTJ Trail this past March, and another one last year at Avaria GC. It seems only a small percentage of pro shops carry them, so if I see one I'll usually buy it. They generally run $29 - $49.

Nike or generic (Amazon) solar sleeves with ice water poured over the forearms periodically and a bucket hat. Nice to see more suggestions, I'll have to look out for some of these other items.
