7 ways to avoid getting sunburnt on the golf course

Rory Mc Ilroy Applies Sun Cream

1. Wear sunscreen

The most obvious preventative measure – but one that so many people inexplicably choose to ignore. Experts recommend that you apply a cream or lotion, with a minimum SPF of 30, to all exposed areas of your skin at least 30 minutes before you venture outdoors. Try to find one that is sweat resistant and re-apply every two hours, or more if you are sweating heavily. Don’t be fooled by cloud cover, either. The sun’s harmful UV rays can penetrate clouds so, even if it’s overcast, it makes good sense to apply some cream.
