Gary Leeman is among a select few players in the National Hockey League to score 50 goals in a season, but he also happens to be a good golfer.

I caught up with Gary at a Toronto Maple Leafs alumni game to talk about hockey and golf. Gary surpassed the coveted 50-goal plateau for the Leafs in 1989-90, and later became part of a 10-player trade, the biggest one in National Hockey League history, and also had the good fortune of winning a Stanley Cup with the Montreal Canadiens in 1992-94.

Every time I go to the gym, I do a light warmup riding the stationary bike for about 10 minutes at moderate speed and then do some easy stretching before I increase the intensity of the workout with weights and other apparatus.

5 Best Balls For Winter Golf

Winter conditions make it tricky to get out on the course, but not necessarily impossible. If it is just a light dusting that covers the fairways and you’re willing to brave the weather, then there is no reason you can’t squeeze in a few rounds during the colder months of the year. But just because you’re up to the task, that doesn’t mean your equipment is, especially when it comes to your golf balls. In fact, a golf ball loses about two yards of carry for every 10 degrees drop in temperature. This is due to the fact that the colder a golf ball gets, the harder it becomes, making it more difficult to compress. When teeing it up in less than ideal conditions, it’s a good idea to choose a ball that is a little softer than what you might normally play. It is also a good idea to go with a ball of the colored variety, to help increase visibility on a frosty or snow covered course. Here are the five best balls for golf in the winter, all of which can be found right here at LostGolfBalls.com.
