Thanks, JP. Sounds like a good idea. My mouth will thank you. Not in the hitchhiking way.

I didn't want to start a new thread....

Has anyone tried some of these "high tech fabric" shirts? I was wondering about treating myself to a couple of golf polos that are supposed to block UV, wick moisture, keep you amazingly cool and improve your short game.

OK, I made the last one up, but I still wonder about spending $50~$60 on the type of shirt that I'd normally spend $15 on.... (Yeah, I've never been known as a fashion plate)

Sunglasses?

I have always liked Ray-Ban. Stylish with a classic look that never will out of style. Here is a few of their models . These are excellent for reducing glare. Night and day difference when driving with and without them.

On the left is the Ray-Ban Cockpit RB3362. "Gunmetal" frame, green polarized lens. On the right is the Ray-Ban Tech series. Carbon frame, grey/green polarized lens.

Mark,

I have a few couple of specialty fabric shirts that I bought for Kayaking mostly but also biking. They definitely do what they say about wicking away moisture and that can be a big part of keeping you comfortable and cool or alternatively, warm.

This is especially true for off-season water sports where if cotton gets wet, you are less likely to get hypothermia by stripping off the stupid shirt than by leaving a wet cotton shirt on.

Now of course, a golf game is not normally a water sport but I heard your's often is. (Damn, where is my snicker dog picture?)

In short they do what they promise on the heat/cool side but I don't know if the UV bit is neccessary. I've certainly never gotten a sunburn underneath a shirt before but with today's evil rays, maybe it's best to block even filtered portions.

Final note: They are waaaayyyyy over priced verses their production costs (friend in the business.) I never buy them unless they are at least 50% off and even then they are making money.

Thanks, Murph!

Yeah, I see them on pretty good sales here and there, but wasn't sure if there was anything to them to even want to favor them over a regular shirt!

To the extent one can have fun splitting wood, I'm having fun with a new Fiskars X27 Splitting Axe . It's going through gnarlies that I was having trouble splitting with a 6 pound maul.
