The cooler the temperature, the more distance you lose.
Yes, colder air will affect the distance a golf ball travels. The first issue would be that a golf ball is designed to compress around 70-75 degrees, so anything less will hurt distance. Secondly the cold air is more dense than warm air and will knock the ball down. When it is hot like here in Texas in the summer, the ball will go much farther. You could have almost a 3-4 club difference depending on the weather.
Cold air SEVERELY affects distance and spin overall. It even affects me here in California.
I played Eagle Trace today, nice temp, bit too windy.
During the winter I don't have any type of schedule that I play, just wing it.
We'll have to get together sometime.
I am in NE Texas, Mt. Vernon area, & use a lower compression ball in the winter to keep from loosing distance.
We do have a few good days, around 70, buit most are in the 50's.
We have also gotten a lot of rain, thank God, the last few days & everything is wet & the ball just sets & doesn't roll.
Has anyone been able to find the Ladies balls around as I want to try them out in this cooler temperature?
Also has anyone increased the loft on there 910 clubs to get anymore distance in this weather?
How about Tuesday?
How about next Monday or Tuesday, weather is looking good, not as good as today but still good.
