Are you mocking me?

We have two seasons, winter and summer, although many would dispute
there is actually any winter. But because it's so dry here, spring
may be hot but not sweaty hot.
I don't really go by the calendar, just whenever I feel like I'm not
getting a good grip barehanded, then I'll put on the glove. I take it
off for putting and chipping, so it's a hassle to me to continually
take it off, put it on... if I can get away without it, I will.
I do like to slowly rrrrriiiiiippppp the velcro when my opponent is
just about to stroke his putt. Don't have that going for me when not
wearing a glove in which case I have to resort to chanting "Noonan!"

I would suspect heat stroke in such a case.

Don't use them if you don't need them.

True enough. My problems here are more about comfort and grip than
health. I'm fortunate enough to live in a place that is a lot less
hot and a lot less humid. My sweat evaporates much more readily than
it does in the humid south, cooling me off. The most uncomfortable
part is under my hat. I have to dry off my scalp.
Some people don't drink enough in dryer climates, not aware that they
are sweating so much.
