This winter has been unreal. Here in the northeastern part of the U.S., we’ve been hit with snow storm after snow storm. Even now in early March, the temps are still frigid and the snow is still on the ground. So I guess it shouldn’t surprise you that my balls are freezing.

Of course, I’m talking about my golf balls. A few years ago, I actually wrote about why it’s not a good idea to put your golf balls in the freezer. And for 99.9% of balls out there, that’s true – the colder it gets, the more distance you lose.
But now, a company in North Carolina has designed a golf ball that reaches its maximum performance when the temps dip below 60 degrees Fahrenheit (15.5 degrees Celsius). The ColdFusion golf ball touts:
“Golf is not always played in perfect weather. Finally, you have a golf ball that outperforms other balls in less than ideal conditions. When the temperature drops and your regular ball stops preforming, switch to ColdFusion to enhance your game.”
Fitted with a cold powered core and an elastic lonomer cover, the ColdFusion golf ball is said to “compress in extreme conditions” while still providing a “soft feel and control.” All that’s required is cold storage – yes, you read that right – you must keep the ball cold before your round and as long as it’s chilly out on the course, feel free to play your ColdFusion balls!
Now I know what some of you might be thinking: Who’s out on the course in the ice and snow? But remember, the temps only need to be below 60 degrees. I actually played two rounds this past fall with the temps below that! In addition, there are many portions of the southern U.S. where golf is playable year-round – as long as you’re willing to brave 40- and 50-degree weather. For those locales, the ColdFusion ball is a perfect fit.
