To all those golfers braving the winter this season, here are 10 tips you shouldn’t be without.
Tip #1 – Be realistic! Understand that the ball isn’t going to go as far or spin as much in the cold. You also have to be prepared for the fact that you can’t go out there with the same strategy as a normal day. Be prepared for a tough day and stay mentally tough.
Tip #2 – Keep your hands warm! This is the single most important tip for cold weather golf! Your hands are your only link to the club, and you need feel to play good golf. If your hands are frozen, you lose all your feel and your game will suffer, especially around the greens. Get yourself a nice pair of mittens and/or some hand warmers for your pockets. Wear the mitts whenever you aren’t hitting a shot, and take them off prior to hitting.
Tip #3 – Cover your head and ears! Some say that between 7 to 55 percent of your body heat can be lost through your head. Whatever the science is behind it, it’s smart to cover your head and ears with a wool hat or ear warmers. You’ll be more comfortable. Get yourself a nice ski tuque like mine, and at the very least it will be a great conversation piece!
Tip #4 – Play a softer ball. Golf balls don’t have compression ratings any more since wound balls went away, but some balls are softer and in cold weather you’ll want a ball that is easier to compress. A hard rock ball like a Top Flite XL will feel like a steel ball bearing on a cold day, so opt for a softer option, like the new Srixon Q-Star.
Tip #5 – Use more club! Check the ego at the pro shop bruiser, the ball doesn’t go as far in the cold. You might have to take one for the team and hit 2 more clubs on every approach shot, but at least you’ll be sure to get to the hole. Because the ball doesn’t go as far, also consider playing one tee up from your normal length. There’s nothing that will ruin a day faster than having to hit three wood into every par three and four. But wait, there’s more…

Is it fair to say that solid colours will always remain in fashion no matter what the season? These staple items are often the go-to as it is easy to pair with any outfit. However, pulling off a patterned item is bold and portrays the fun, adventurous side of you.
This season, one of the popular trends is pairing different patterns together. One of the most preferred pattern trends on the high street is the check. Whether its a check shirt or pant, these markings come in a variety of styles and colours.
If your style is bold or toned down, fear not, wearing check can be simple for all. Those that opt for a quieter style can adopt check influences in the form of added details such as pockets or more subtle checks like gingham. Those that go all out with their attire can opt for all over check patterns in a number of different colour options.
Check polo shirts work great both on and off the course and here you will see two alternative styles; one showcasing an all over check pattern while the other has it in the details. The contrast in these shirts showcases two different outfit options. But, both of these polo shirts are great outfit starters, allowing you to choose the rest of your items from the Fall color palette. Therefore, creating a fashionable, on trend look. But wait, there’s more…
