    Golfers spend four to five hours in the sun each time they play golf. Add practice time on the range before play and during the week, and your average golfer is exposed to a great deal of sunlight each week.
    We are all active people. We walk our dogs, take our kids and grandkids to the beach and play tennis. That’s a lot of sun exposure and we need to be concerned about it.
