Stay Warm on the Course No Matter What the Temperature
Don’t let frigid temperatures outside strip you of the joy of getting in a round of golf this weekend. Yes, it may be cold outside, but that doesn’t have to keep you off of the course. The trick to enjoying a winter game is keeping warm. But how? Take Mom’s Advice Mother really does know best – even when you’re a grow-up. When you were a child your mother likely had a lot of rules when it came to playing outside. Well, those rules still apply!
- Keep Your Head Warm: it is a fact, your head leaks body heat. Be sure to wear a tight (but comfortable) hat that covers both your head and your ears.
- Dress in Layers. Yep, mom was right; dressing in layers can help keep you warm no matter what the weather. Plus, it enables you to easily take off a jacket or sweater in order to swing better. Depending on how cold it is outside, start with a thermal layer and then add a long sleeve t-shirt, sweatshirt and jacket. Look for thin temperature controlled clothing at your local sports store. There are plenty of lightweight options available designed to keep you warm while leaving your arms free to swing.
- Keep Your Feet Warm and Dry: be sure to wear long, heavy and moisture wicking socks while playing in colder temperatures. Warm toes make for a more pleasant game.
