Canadians here are freaking me out. I grew up in FL and live in GA, so I have no problem wearing pants when it's 95 degrees out and humid, but you won't find me on the course if it's below 40. I used to never play if it went below 55 or so, but I've toughened up in my old age. I also think I started to figure out this whole "layering" concept.
I think cold weather golfing becomes much more doable when you're walking. I played this past weekend, and I think the temperature was around 38 when we teed off but it wasn't that bad when you're carrying your own bag.
The thing that gets me more than the weather is that I feel so restricted if I have more layers on than just a golf shirt and a jacket. I hate hate hate feeling like my backswing is restricted. According to my stats, I'm averaging 8 strokes worse when I go from 2 layers to 3+ layers. Hopefully that'll improve with time, but it definitely tells me that I'm not ready to golf in Ireland anytime soon.
