MARANA, Ariz -- How does cold weather affect a golfer's swing? John Brenkus, six-time Emmy Award winner, and creator of "Sport Science," was tasked with trying to answer that question in a recent “adidas Golf Innovations” video.

With the help of TaylorMade/adidas staffer Jason Day, Brenkus found that freezing temperatures caused Day to lose coordination, grip pressure and 20 yards off the tee when he wore a regular jacket.

However, the distance loss was only three yards when Day wore adidas' Climawarm+ jacket — made from a hollow-fiber yarn, the jacket's fabric naturally retains body heat — under the same conditions. "It is difficult to play in the cold weather," Day said. "But when you're wearing the Climawarm+, it makes a hell of a lot of difference."
