Okay, last couple of years, I store my equipment in the garage when the season ends. Then I got thinking....does the cold temperatures affect ball performance the following year? I've seen a few threads where everyone says that they store their equipment inside. Once the golf balls thaw out the following spring, do they still perform the same, or is it time to buy new ones?

I think with solid core balls it would not be a problem.  That said, I would store them inside just to be certain.

What kind of balls are they?

I store my golf equipment inside because I'm afraid it will get mad at me if I leave it in the garage.  I won't even leave it in my car overnight when I'm on the road.  I treat my equipment well and it treats me well.

a ball would conform to the rules of exothermic heat (pertaining to the outside) - once the temperature increases - the ball will be back to normal.

If the ball was effected by endothermic heat (pertaining to the inside), you would be wise to store them inside.  This is not the case - outside is fine.  Just warm them up before you hit them - for optimal performance.

Hows that for an over-the-top answer?

I have been using low compression balls since I don't have a high swing speed. So I guess they are 2-piece.

I would guess they would be OK assuming your garage didn't reach freezing temperatures. I know when I fly and play the same day when I get the balls out of the bag they are pretty cold, but after an hour or so they play just fine. I don't know how cold the storage area of commercial jets get though. Of course that's just a couple hours in a plane versus spending the entire winter in a garage.
