Summer often brings along with it soaring temperatures and unbearable heat, and because of this, it can easily turn your favorite outdoor activity into a rather tedious and hectic task. Such can be said for a host of activities like hiking, biking, and playing a host of sports including golf. Golfers are often exposed to the hot, relentless heat for hours at a time with little shade to retreat too. This could lead one to hit the ball towards a tree just to get some relief – “come on we have all done it”.
Fortunately, there has been a breakthrough in this particular field of issue and personal water misters have been introduced to golfers and it really take the edge off the heat. They allow them to enjoy, not endure, a full game of summer golf and will keep them from running for shade or resigning early because of the soaring mercury.
So what is a Personal Water Mister? It is a specially designed and engineered apparatus which pushes water, under pressure, through a specially designed nozzle creating super fine particles of water. These atomized particles of water start to evaporate immediately drawing heat from the surrounding area as they evaporate, thereby reducing the temperature by up to 30 degrees F. Some even come with fans to add to the cooling effect.
We are not talking about the cheap spray bottles (some with fans) that just splatter water all over you, getting everything wet. These are real high pressure (80 to 90 PSI) portable misters that delivery a super fine evaporative mist that really cools you down.
A quality personal water mister resembles the mister installed in the backyard patio since that particular device also pushes water under pressure, through a nozzle and creates a mist which greatly reduces the surrounding temperatures, thereby proving to be an essential accessory for summer.

Perks of a personal water mister – A personal water mister is a portable device, small enough to easily fit inside a golf cart or a golf bag, weighing, at the most two pounds. The greatest benefit of the mister is that it can easily reduce the temperature up to 30 degrees F.
Also, since you only have to use them occasionally, they can give you up to three hours of service every time you hit the course, which is enough time to make a trip to the clubhouse to refill it prior to the back nine, after which you are good to go for another three hours.
A personal mister differs from the usual patio mister in only one aspect, which is, a personal mister uses a bottle which holds the water and pressurizes the water through the nozzle with the help of a pump, and creates the mist. However, the patio mister requires a steady source of water which usually turns out to be the outdoor faucet, connected to a domestic water line or a large electric pump. Therefore, the patio mister is not portable and cannot accompany you were ever you go; unlike the personal mister.
Personal water misters are perfect for golfers, since they remain out in the heat for hours during summer. And in spite of the love for the game it does become rather uncomfortable. Therefore, all you need is this very special little bottle of water which will reduce the temperature and make the sport the perfect outdoor activity you always thought it to be.
Even during hottest days of the summer. The truth is that it may or may not actually improve your golf skills or lower your score, but it will definitely ensure that you keep playing and not running from the golf course because of the intense heat waves.
Along with personal misters, certain clubs have gone ahead and installed misters in their golf carts. The golf cart misting system works the same way as the personal mister, except that it has a much larger storage gear in the form of a tank, attached to the back of the golf carts. The nozzles are attached near the head of the passenger seats and when switched on it creates the perfect mist for the ones travelling in the carts.
The cart mister, as with all other mist cooling devices, has been developed by employing the basic theories of evaporative cooling and thermal dynamics, which just removes the heat, leaving a cool refreshing temperature behind. It works for six hours per fill, less than five decibels and reduces temperatures by up to 25 degrees.
So, if you are nowhere close to the clubhouse and your personal mister has run out of water, you can just switch on the cart mister and enjoy the cool mist for the next six hours.
Therefore, if you are a golfer, your prayers have surely been answered. Do not think about quitting your favorite activity or even limiting it during the summer season. Just let the latest in mist cooling technology take care of the temperature issues so you can enjoy your game just like you used to. Just grab your personal water mister and hit the course, you will surely not feel overheated with your very own cooling device.
Plus you are sure to be the envy of all the other golfers that do not have one and are left to swelter in the heat while you get ready to have your best game ever – well at least your “coolest game”.
