The shaded part of the Equipment Rules is quoted from the Rules of Golf, 4.2a(2), and is included in the phone app.

Ah. So it is. I used the search bar in the app and didn’t find it, but did come across a reference to the longer reference. I missed it.

Yeah I always keep my golf balls in a warmer when it drops below 50. Gets me an extra 2-3yds. I also clean it after every hole to get any grass stains off to improve the flight pattern which keeps that baby draw right at 5-10’ rather than 4.2-9.3’. I also realize the cooler grass on the greens can affect my roll so I bring my ball to the same temp as the green as to not misjudge the expected revolutions. 😛

When you get serious about golf you'll keep your driver and putter warm in your pocket, too...

Serious and entertainingly delusional aren’t the same thing.😉

Do you keep a spare one in your pocket? If so, how does the sweat affect spin?

I wear shorts with dehumidifying pockets.

These guys drew the opposite conclusion:

This feels like a pretty lousy test, IMO. They only cooled the ball for two hours. They are using a simulator/launch monitor.

I'm also getting about 20 yards less carry than they're getting with those numbers at 500 feet of altitude. At 2500 I get 294 carry for the first one, they get 308.

Hmmmm.

    • I would suggest putting up a swing video so that people can assist you better.  In general, very few people can generally have too much hip or shoulder turn.  Most have too little
    • Day 64, July 28, 2021: Three quarter swing feels today, same stuff I’ve been working on for the last month. 
    • It's finally arrived! Will dig in, hope it helps my game as it has for so many here!
    • What do you guys think about limit hip turn on back swing for greater hip turn down swing? I believe my swing is full hip and shoulder turn on back swing but only get a little bit open hip at impact. any drill to help me achieve this and get more hip turn on down swing? the best I can do at impact.
    • Day 154.  I practiced the "snapping sticks" quarantine drill a bit more today, both with the alignment stick and my 6-iron (I seem to feel it more in my right arm than my left, although once I've gone for 30 seconds, I can start to feel it in my core).  I also hit a dozen full swing shots with my 6-iron (indoors, off a mat, etc), the usual practice routine for them, focusing on takeaway and position at the end of the backswing.
