Yeah, the humidity changes everything.  It can be 100* here and you are burning, but not sweating.

Oh its a big deal to me.  Its just either deal with it or dont play.  I just deal with it.  That doesnt mean I dont bish about it lol.

Me & my buddy played yesterday.  Were out there cooking waiting for for a group to get out of the fairway while bishing & about us cooking.  I said to him...  You know this game is hard enough, then you have the sun out here trying to kill us while were doing it.  Brutal sometimes down here.

I played with the heat index in the teens in February and with it over 100 just 5 months later this month. Sling the Jones bag over my shoulder and go.  No matter the season, it certainly beats being inside.

I did the same on Friday in NorCal. Felt like I was 20 again, when I just couldn’t get enough of this game, no matter the weather. I would play in sideways rain and hail where I had to clear a path to putt.

Heat sucks for sure.  I play early so it's not unbearable.  Walking, not riding.  You guys that carry in 100F heat are the nutters.  I'd at least use a push cart.

Been playing last 2 months in good ole Tenneseee summer heat that has been 90*+ and close to 100% humidity. Not a dry spot by rounds end and some days it feels like you are breathing wet air. Had a little break last week with 80s and high humidity but back up to 90s this week. Some morning rounds it feels humidity is so thick that most shots play a club further sometimes.

Yes it is long but we never play from the tips or Jack's Black Tees (Jack Kramer owns the place).
