5 Tips For Cold Weather Golf

With the thermometer plunging below freezing in most parts of the country, golf season has come to a screeching halt. But maybe you are one of those brave souls for whom temperature is just a number. If you’re going to brave the elements then it is important to be prepared. Here are five tips to help you stay warm and have fun during your winter round.

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.

Want To Lose Less Golf Balls? Bright Colors Might Be The Answer

The arrival of fall also brings the arrival of one of the greatest nemeses to golfers everywhere: leaves on the fairway. We have all experienced this scenario. You stripe a perfect drive down the center of the fairway only to arrive at the spot where your ball should sit and realize that it is nowhere to be found. When a golf course is lush and green in summer it is easy to spot the white dot 300 yards down the fairway (okay, maybe a little closer than 300 yards). However, with more and more obstructions covering courses around the country, tee shots are becoming more and more difficult to locate. Luckily for golfers everywhere, there is a solution. For years manufacturers have been making brightly colored golf balls to help golfers follow and locate their shots easier. However, some people think these balls are inferior or are embarrassed to put them into play. Well, it is time to put these ideas to rest. Here are some of the best brightly colored options offered by LostGolfBalls.com.
