Hitting A Cold Golf Ball

Hitting a cold golf ball is never fun. The vibrations continuously reverberate up the shaft of the club into our hands, wrists and elbows. After 60 or so swings, my joints become annoyed and they want a rest. Of course, this does not stop me from going out the next day in the cool temperatures, but it is something I am aware of and try to prevent.

It was not how I planned my golf season to finish, but life things happen and so other priorities need to move to the top of the ‘to do’ list. It is no big deal and I will hit my goal of 80 rounds before the end of the year.
