Last week I showed you some cool/goofy ways to wear your Frogg Toggs chilly pad to keep you cool. This week I will suggest ways to deal with those pesky sun rays.
As I end up being out in the San Diego sun for long periods of time, I need to take steps to protect myself from the sun. Of course sun screen SPF 50 or higher is a great way to protect your skin. But I have a few other clothing and accessory tips to help you stay healthy in the heat.

Kind of a no brainer really. Keep the sun off of your head and out of your eyes. If your hair is thick, you might prefer a visor to stay a little cooler. If your neck tends to burn easily, you might want to try a full-brimmed hat.
More and more tour pros are starting to wear sunglasses for playing. I wear Maxx HD GT Adult Sun Glasses. They have yellow-tint lenses, which cut out the glare but really define green colors. A good pair of sunglasses should provide UV protection. The HD maxx are a good, inexpensive pair.
I Recently got a pair of NIKE DRI-FIT SOLARSLEEVES. They are comfortable to wear, provide 30SPF protection and really aren’t any hotter than having bare arms.
With these extra items I can stay almost 100% covered from the sun, have improved vision in bright light and stay cool.
