Different type of golf clothing required for ice golf

Golf clothing normally consists of a t-shirt and jumper, with maybe some waterproofs thrown on top in wet weather, however a few more layers will be necessary at the World Ice Golf Championships next month.

Taking place on Greenland's frozen sea, the tournament offers players the chance to play a few rounds in a very different setting.

The green is actually pure white, and glaciers glitter in the background, plus there are no bunkers to distract players.

Temperatures often drop below minus 42 degrees C, meaning anyone taking part should wrap up in their warmest golf clothing.

The tournament dates back to 1997, although it has not been held every year due to extreme weather conditions and unstable ice.

The last tournament was held in 2006 and was won by Jason Cunningham of Brisbane, Australia.

It is a 36-hole-stroke competition played over two days, with a 'Ryder Cup' style tournament, called The Niemann Cup played the day before.
