Playing Disc Golf in the cold
Here in Northern NY there was frost on the ground this morning; winter is right around the corner. My questions are: what is the coldest temp in which you’ve ever played, how do you adjust to cold weather and what do you use to keep worm?
1. Keeping your hands warm. I’ve already quit a round after 5 holes because my hands got numb from the cold. Do you wear special gloves for throwing or do you wear loose fitting gloves/mittens and remove one to throw?
2. Jacket: I feel that layering will be too restrictive for me to throw with any power. What jacket do you wear?
3. Footwear: I have a good idea of what shoes or boots I will wear as long as the snow cover is less than a few inches. Has anyone played using snowshoes or cross country skiis?
4. Discs: Have you ever had a problem with discs breaking due to them getting ridged from the cold? If so what plastic was the disc and how cold was it?
