If you are going to play in sun all the time and if you live in Florida, I am a bit suprised you don't already know this, the solution to the sun and lobs, is to tilt your head such that the ball (whose flight path is predictable) does not cross directly across the sun itself, or if it does, it does so early enough in the flight path that you can reacquire it afterwards to hit your shot.
As crazy as this sounds, the sun here in Orlando was not that hard to deal with in the late spring, summer, and early fall. Recently, it has really been a challenge. Not sure if the angle or brightness changes with the seasons...or if it's just me. Normally the head tilt you mentioned works.
