In theory, the lighter the head the faster the club head speed= more distance. However, if heavier weights are placed in the right spot the better placed the centre of gravity is so the further the ball goes.

yes, the hotter the ball the softer it becomes it will then affect the COR (coefficient of restitution)

yes it dose if the weather is cold then it will go farther and if its cold then you already lost 2 yards, plus of far you can hit the ball
