Love to golf? You may look forward to every minute you can spend on the course. But it pays to be reasonable. Limit your sun exposure. While golfing, watch for symptoms of dehydration, heat exhaustion and heatstroke. Red flags might include a headache, dizziness, nausea, excess fatigue, rapid heartbeat or confusion. Drink plenty of water, and cut your game short if necessary.
