Cold Play

Juniata Golf Club
Philadelphia, Pa
Yards: 2735/2070 - 4805
Par: 34/32 - 66
Rating: 63.2, Slope: 106
Score: 45 (Front Nine)
Date: November 23, 2008

Although the temperature only climbed to around 40 with a steady breeze, the sun came out so I decided to try out my new Wilson Staff Di7 irons with nine holes at Juniata Golf Club. Wearing my Under Armour Coldgear Compression Mock under a Mizuno Breath Thermo Classic Mock, with an Under Armour Stableford Pullover, I was ready to battle the elements as well as the links. The course was more crowded than I expected given the weather. The ground was soft on top, but frozen underneath and the fairways are becoming very spotty as sections of grass go dormant in the colder climate. This meant that teeing up was a challenge and even the best drive in the fairway sometimes led to unexpected and tricky lies.

I hit the ball decently considering I'm playing more sporadically and with several layers of clothes on. I drove the ball well, especially with my Wilson Staff Spine Driver, hitting four out five fairways that I used it. In the last 27 holes that I've played with the driver in the bag, I've hit 10 out of 16 fairways. The new Wilson Staff Di7 irons played well also, although with the colder weather, the ball didn't travel as far as usual. Still, I managed to hit the golf ball straight and it the air. I had a few miss-hits, but they were more the result of bad lies. Chipping was also good with the new sticks. I hit the ball crisply and it often stopped quicker on the greens than I thought it would. I'm not sure if this was the result of the slower greens or the irons putting a bit more spin on the ball.

Thanks for checking out my blog John. I'm glad you find the posts helpful. I would definitely recommend the Wilson Spine Driver. If this is your first driver, you might want to consider getting the one with 12-degrees of left. The higher loft makes it easier to hit.
