Keep Warm on Golf Course – How to Golf When Cold

Golfers hate to miss a day of golf, but sometimes the weather isn’t very cooperative. If there’s frost on the grass, the game is delayed but not canceled. Heading out for an early tee time sometimes means chill conditions especially if it’s windy as well.

It’s an inexpensive item, so the commissions aren’t much but it makes a good impulse buy for people.
