    This video simply shows the impact of one variable (i.e. golf ball temperature) on distance. As indicated above, there are lots of other variables that impact distance as well. Perhaps those that have anecdotally experienced loss of distance in colder weather are attributing the loss to the wrong variable (i.e ball being cold vs. colder and more dense air, colder driver metal causing less 'springy' face, colder shaft that loads less efficiently. etc. etc.). Now that I think about it, it does make sense that a colder golf ball will be firmer and possibly will travel father as it will behave like a higher compression ball, but it will also likely impact the feel of the ball as well, which will be detrimental around the greens. Anyway, the video does give you reason think about what has been generally accepted about performance in colder weather. Very interesting for sure.
