I am playing in a tournament in Feb and the weather will be between 30 - 50 degrees. My swing speed with a driver is around 105 and my handiacp is 8.2. I am looking for help finding a good cold weather golf ball for my game. Any ideas are welcome and appreciated.

Pinnacle Soft
TaylorMade LDP
NXT Tour Extreme

These all play good in cool weather (cold is -35° plus the windchill).  If you play a ProV or similar ball, watch out for the short irons going further than you are used to regardless of the temp.  If I were needing to play one ball, I would chose the Taylor LDP for overall distance with feel and spin.

When it is cool out (40°-50°), I will play one of the above tee to fairway and hit my ProV from short range for better distance control.  Note: I only use the less expensive ball off the tee In casual play because of the leaves and flat light in the the fall makes finding anything remotely near the rough very tough. I am prepared to accept losing a $1 ball (and quickly move on) because of the conditions but there is no sense in doing that with a brand new ProV or similar.

I find the Wilson Zip an exceptional cold weather ball, and right now they are discounted heavily at most retailers. Pick up a sleeve/dozen.

The Zips are good, as are the Staff 50 Elites.

However, I used Srixon AD333s as my fall gamer this year (golfing in the high 30's to low 40's) and was surprised how little distance I lost with them.  They actually spin pretty well for a 2-piece also.

Another vote for the Staff 50 Elites.  Was shocked how much I liked playing them in sub-40* temps.  Normally play V1x or One Black.
