Hi Tim,

Welcome to Malaysia! Thank you for coming to our defence against Tiger's comment about Malaysia being hotter than Tulsa. While our temperatures are not much higher than those at Tulsa, our weather must have felt hotter due to the high humidity. That's why playing golf in these parts of the world can be very trying and tiring! And then I like your comments about installing water coolers. That would be very wonderful but then again, without saying too much of it lest it would embarrassing upon ourselves, you install it today and it will be out-of-order or gone tomorrow. That's the reason why water coolers are not installed on golf courses here. Instead you will notice there are at least two drink stops (drink huts) one on each nine where you can buy and stock up on bottled water. That's what we normally do here. Once again, thank you for defending us against the might of Tiger! Have a nice stay here.

Maybe they could train the monkeys to bring around cups of water?

Malaysia's heat is consistent and steady all year, therefore the people are accustomed to it. Generally, the temperature is around 85-95 year round. Tulsa probably experienced a short-lived heat wave during the PGA. At 110, it is definitely hotter than Malaysia in general.

As I always say:

It's not so much the heat, it's the humidity.
And it's not so much the humidity, as the dewpoint.
And it's not so much the dewpoint, as the heat index.
And it's not so much the heat index, as it is the amount of sweat in your butt crack.

Seriously, I always say that. (Much to my wife's chagrin.)
