Does it provide adequate neck protection as well?

ears are covered.. but the neck... depends on the angle of the sun i guess... if the sun is on top of yr head then it will protect...

Neck kana burn, high chance bending too low, back swing, dip down, get exposed even more.

One immediate remedy, dun take too long to hit.

Dracula style. unfold collar to protect behind neck or wear japanese war cap.
For me night golf so no problemo.

For day golf, just accept fate, nothing will be spared by the mighty sun.

you know guys anybody seen anyone playing golf with those huge mexican hats .. I think it's called sombrero or something. That will be really funny but it should protect you from the sun, and the best part force you to swing wide wide (otherwise hit the hats edge).

Not sure if these are available in Singapore, but you can check out Outdoor Research (budget) or Tilley (more high class). Both companies make very good hats. I've got a Tilley and i think it works great for golf too. Probably might want to hold on to your hat when you're zooming around in the cart though...

Thx for your suggestions everyone ... once my skin recovers, will resort to night golf @ MBGC ... but what about tournaments/ medals??? I guess I should try out the below ... are these available in Singapore so that I can try them out? I could order online, but prefer trying them on before purchasing ...

you can use the some lotion for treating burn wound. I think you shoudl be able to find them in Guardian or Watson. It helps speeds up the process and sooth the skin. That is if you're not already using it.

Hello all,

after many hours of searching on the net and visiting the shops, I've decided to order the "Supplex Big Brim Hat" found here: http://www.e4hats.com/_e/Supplex_Big_Brim_Hat/product/sb001oh-khaki/Supplex_Big_Brim_Hat_Khaki.htm

it's washable, foldable and has the widest brim i could find.

Only thing is that only orders more than $75 qualify for free shipping. If anyone is interested in anything from that online store, please call me at 9235606five and we can consolidate our orders for free shipping.

PS: I'm not sure if replies can be edited indefinitely but if I've not updated my reply or written another one, that means I'm still looking.
