Aaron, I’m like you, I live in Greenville, S.C. so we get about the same weather , might even be a little warmer in the winter, so I don’t wear a jacket to play, just a long sleeve turtleneck, short sleeve golf shirt and a sweater. I liked the full zip jacket last year just as a wind breaker and not to play golf, just easier to get on and off when your in and out of your house. I also like the idea of a dozen top of the line golf balls and long plastic tees. A nice long sleeve turtleneck would be nice too. As for the jacket this year, I guess my girlfriend’s daughter’s fiancee will be get this for his birthday instead of a dozen golf balls.
