Get some lightweight polypro or some other high wicking long johns. That should pull the sweat away from your skin. And therefore keep you warmer.

Did some field testing today, checking out wind performance of some drivers. Balmy 16 degrees with a wind chill of 2. Feels fine in the sun with the wind at your back.

Played a Glow round last night myself, 50 deg weather and a very light sprinkle. Not often I get 50 deg weather with green grass and no wind in December while playing in Michigan.

Looks like that nasty weather out West is heading East, gonna be chilly this weekend.

I played all 3 IDGC courses and lake Russel in 30* and raining, they look at us with impressed awe at the IDGC. Tonight I'll be playing -20 windchill, I'll play in the worst of conditions, not only just to say I did it but because I actully enjoy it and I'm continually blown away that nobody (ok, I've come across you occasional lllike minded nutjob) is out there enjoyin the experience. I mean really how often do you get to pllay in 20" of snow and minus80 windchill or whatever.

I try not to go below 45 degrees. Recently I played at daybreak at 25 degrees, and couldn't complain because it was I was with a Minnesotan and Wisconsonite who didn't think 25 degrees was cold.
