Iced Golf - Hard Cold Facts

As mentioned in the previous blog post I was playing golf at Legends at Arrowhead today. Towards the end of the game, around the 15th hole, we'd finished all the drinks and there was just ice melting in the cooler on the cart.

I came up with an ingenious idea. The club head is going to be harder and therefore able to hit further if it is cold. So before each shot I soaked the club head in the iced water.

It worked like a charm. I was adding at least 20 to 50 yards to each drive and the other shots with the irons were cracking as well.

I did not ice the putter or the balls because I think that might be disallowed by the R&A golfing rules.
