With me feeling the cold due to my ancient age I am interested in seeing if anyone has any recommendations for winter gloves to use?...I saw on a recent Crossfield playing vlog both he and one of the other guys using gloves and am thinking of trying a pair

I've got the Mizuno thermogrip and UA winter gloves, never been able to get on with them.
Just seems strange having a glove on the right hand.

Both pairs are a bit thicker than normal gloves.

I'd say try a pair on in the shop if possible.

I use(d) MacWets on both hands and then between shots usual Mitts (nice expensive StAn Drews ones :no:). Did me well at Castle Course in St. Andrews when it was 0*. Didn't help with the hangover or any other swing related issues. :D

I've got a pair of the FootJoy winter gloves and although they do a decent job of keeping your hands warmer than they would normally be, I wouldn't say that they keep them warm.  It is also a very odd feeling when swinging the club, and putting and short game shots are a bit of a lottery due to the reduced 'feel'.

I tend to use the gloves at the range if it is cold, but on the course I prefer to use a good pair of winter mitts combined with one of the Zippo hand warmers inside the mitt, or even better one inside each mitt.  Just make sure that the mitts are fleece lined and water proof.  I have the Titleist ones and they are very good.

I've always avoided wearing 2 gloves, but having played in the rain on so many occasions in the last few months I got quite used to playing in a pair of macwets.  Just bought a pair of the Mizuno Thermo jobbies...again a bit weird at first but just takes a couple of rounds getting used to wearing them.

Also use disposable hand warmers instead of wearing mitts.

Snap.   If anything, the Zippo hand warmers can get too hot at times and you can't beat the warmth they give -after all, you're effectively carrying around burning fuel!

Yeah they are too hot without the covers on but just nice with it on for me anyway, they keep a nice even temp all day.

Zippos are great but always have trouble sparking mine up.

Think its alight but soon find out it isn't !
