Keep your water bottles handy

The desert has taken a toll on one of its own. Neil Evans of Phoenix has had to WD from the Golfweek Junior Series at Longbow early due to dehydration.

According to the thermometer, it is already 92, and will only get hotter as the afternoon progresses.

“I just forgot to drink, I guess,” a tired-looking Evans said. “I was standing over the ball and just couldn’t balance.”

With the weather calling for no wind, breezes or early sunsets, it is absolutely crucial that these kids out here stay hydrated, hitting all of the many water stations that are set up here throughout the course.

Evans was disappointed as he started walking to his car he said, “Should’ve known better.” readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
