The colder the ball gets, the less resilient the plastics inside and the harder the ball becomes. Cold balls = hard balls. Cold balls can cause driving distance to go down by as much as 30%. Warm (springy rubber balls) are better for long distance. A warm ball absorbs most of the impact, keeping the ball in contact with the club longer. When the club strikes a warm ball, the ball flattens a bit and then springs back to a round shape, launching itself like a shot from the clubhead.
Warm or cold? Depends on the distance…
