Golf tip of the week: Golf balls don’t perform as well in cold weather
Cold weather has a significant effect on a golf ball’s compression. The cold will cause the golf ball to feel like a rock and not respond as well when contacted by the golf club.
There are several ways to keep your golf balls warm when temperatures are below fifty-degrees:
• Store your golf bag indoors to keep the golf balls at room temperature.
• Place a hand warmer in your golf bag ball compartment before going to the course.
• Keep an extra golf ball in your pocket to keep it warm.
• Use a lower compression golf ball when playing in colder temperatures.
Don’t forget to enjoy this great game called golf.
