Cold weather is not a golfer’s friend; it’s a simple enough fact. But, golfers can’t seem to accept it; players who love the game want to keep playing, come hell or high water – or in this case low temperature. Since we have been around the game of golf for a while – providing golf promotional ideas and hole in one prize insurance – so we thought we should present some useful tips for these passionate players:
Ditch the Cart
If the temperature is low and you still want to tee off, then you should forget about the golf cart and walk around on the course instead. Walking will warm up your body, which will come in handy when you are taking a swing at the ball.
Invest in Gloves
Keeping your hands warm is of the utmost importance, unless you want to lose the control and finesse in your game. Wear gloves, when you are not taking a shot or keep your hands in your pocket, to keep them warm.
Warmer Golf Ball is your Friend
You can’t let your golf ball get cold; a cold ball will not travel as far as a warm ball. You could lose a good 5 yards, if you take a shot with a colder ball. You can keep the golf ball in your pocket, when you are commuting between holes.
Wear warm clothing, but don’t bundle up so much that it gets hard to take a swing at the ball. Go with a thermal under shirt and a couple of more layers of clothing – a golfing shirt and a sweater – on top of it will keep you adequately warm.
Give yourself a Reality Check
The most important thing to remember is that, you are playing in cold weather and your game will suffer. There may be a slight to a moderate increase in your scoring average, depending on how low the temperature is. Because, as we have said, the cold golf ball will not travel that far and your swing will lose its precision because of the low temperatures.
We hope that you can make use of the tips above and play golf well, even in cold weather. Were these tips helpful? Let us know by leaving your comments below.
