This video, once you get past the corny intro and cold ball reference, is actually pretty good info. The gents from Cleobury Mortimer Golf Club conducted a study on the importance of matching the compression of a golf ball to your swing speed. They also did a study of the effect of cold weather on the distance a golf ball travels.
The tester Dave is a fifteen handicap golfer who hit five frozen two-piece golf balls, five room temperature two-piece golf balls and five room temperature three-piece golf balls. The results were pretty impressive.
He hit the room temperature two-piece golf balls an average of 15 yards longer than the frozen balls and ten yards longer than the three-piece golf balls.
So, the take aways are pretty simple, use the right golf ball for your swing speed and don’t leave your clubs in the car during cold weather.
And this video is for laughs.. 🙂
