Good outer layer for very cold weather?

8 posts in this topic

I play when it's cold during the winter.

My usual dress is an underarmour base layer, followed by a coldgear long sleeve golf shirt. Then a Footjoy performance sweater or heavy fleece. My current outer layer is a pullover lined windbreaker.

I'd like a better outer layer and would appreciate suggestions.

Thanks.

I go with an underarmour long sleeve turtleneck, a polo, and a light jacket.  With that, pants, and a winter hat, I'm fine walking 18 down to 32*.

All about the wind and keeping my feet dry for me. Usually a compression t-shirt, mock neck and mid weight wind shirt is enough. I wore summer weight Nike pants most days last winter. If it was below 32 I wore compression bottoms. Hand warmers and Titleist mittens did more than anything. Amazing what warm hands do for you.

FJ Performance sweater or Mizuno Windlite work great for me.  I wear UA Cold Gear Infrared as base layer with sweater on top and if it's really cold I'll throw on a UA Cold Gear vest as the top layer.

hand warmers, purchase in costco or BJ's, $13 for a box. start out with a compression shirt, than a FITTED shirt (UA or whatever), than a loose (light) thermal type. years ago the thickness of these 3 items would have equaled 1 heavy shirt. outter layer should be another light jacket. i use a sun mountain rain jacket. you can use long or short sleeve.. this is a non-bulky attire. as for the ball i would think a soft compression would be better.

If I am going to play in really cold weather, I have a Thermasilk base layer set.  I wear the bottoms, then a pair of cotton pants and if need be my rain pants over the top.  I will wear the Thermasilk top, then a turtleneck (not mock) shirt so I can leave the neck unfolded to cover more of my neck, a long sleeve polo shirt over the top.  If need be, I will wear a lined pull over windshirt or my rain jacket over the top to knock off the wind.

I have found with the Thermasilk stuff, you have to make sure the temps are not going to start out cold and warm up quickly.  Your upper body may get a bit too hot if it does and you find yourself pealing off everything to get the Thermasilk top off.

One of the things that bothers me a lot is for my neck to be cold.  So from my hunting days I have several neck gaiters and I will wear them playing golf on really cold days, even if I have a turtleneck on.

Titleist mittens did more than anything. Amazing what warm hands do for you.

yes, no doubt!   I never liked wearing cold weather golf gloves so I carry a pair of Mittens too and wear them between shots when it gets cold.  It makes a HUGE difference and it's all I need.

When it comes to outer wear.....3 layers works for me with temps down in the 30s.  I wear a long sleeve t-shirt on the bottom/long sleeve-Under Armour crew or turtle neck over that, and then a lined wind short on top......and I'm good to go.  I ride and use a cart cover so I am toasty warm even with wind chills in the teens.

    • Looking for new irons - - - HELP!!
      Just bought new irons myself.  It's a process.  Not sure if you're a single-digit hdcp'er or a relative hack like me.  Ether way, here are some suggestions to get you moving in the right direction. 1. As example only, a link to Golf Digest 2016 GI Hot List clubs:  http://www.golfdigest.com/hot-list/golf-clubs/game-improvement-irons 2.  Determine what you expect to get from a new set of irons.  Straighter?  Higher flight? Distance? 3. Identify 3-5 iron models that you think fit your requirements 4. Go to a Golfsmith, Golf Galaxy or other location where you can try irons from each manufacturer, hit and evaluate results on launch monitor. 5. Go with the set that delivers the best results based on your swing. Other thoughts as I just went through the process: Get a thorough fitting.  There is a point at which hybrids might make more sense than longer irons.  My new set starts at 6-iron and include 4- and 5-hybrids on the longer side. Irons and hybrids are NOT the same brand, either. You should be able to order ONLY the clubs you want from reputable dealers. So many sets come 4-AW off the shelf.  That club lineup might not be best for you. A fitting to determine what club complement is best for you is what's most important before plunking down a lot of money. I don't like to be brand conscious when I go though a decision process like this.  Keep it fact-based and data driven and you'll arrive at the best option for you.  Launch monitors don't lie.  At least I believe they don't. You should go into a club fitting with a short list of irons you think might work for you. ASK the club fitter if there are other models he or she would recommend you try.  This should round out your 'possibles' to 5 or 6 at most. Be prepared to make a lot of swings. Bring a glove.  You'll need it. Good luck and keep us posted on your journey. dave
    • What did you buy on your last trip to the golf store?
      No, she doesn't want ME TO BUY new irons, SHE WANTS TO BUY ME new irons. She is probably thinking, hey if I buy him new irons maybe he will spend more time out golfing and give me more time to myself. There is a method to her madness.
    • Custom Headcovers?
      Custom embroidery would be an option. Your initials, a logo or image could be used for a set. Premium Head Covers are available. Caddy Daddy offers the Inferno, Lucky and High Roller Casino based Themed Driver Head Covers. Features include 40,000 stitch embroidery on synthetic leather fabric with inside padding and polyester ribbed sock. http://www.caddydaddygolf.com/driver-head-covers.htm
    • Using Game Golf to Analyze Gaps
      That might be the case. My 4 iron is a more game improvement iron. It's a cavity back versus a muscle back. Also, I do use it off the tee more than the 5 iron, so the lie is perfect.  Maybe my game is more suited for a more GI type iron in the long iron set. It's something to consider looking into.   
    • "The Putting Bible" by Dave Pelz
      The very first thing Dave Pelz says In his book----- after the acknowledgements is. " I want to start this book with a short explanation. Look closely at the title. Notice that  I don't claim this to be  "THE" putting bible. I call it Dave Pelz's Putting Bible because it truly is "my" bible on putting. It is a compendium of my research, my studies, my test results, my teaching philosophy, and my beliefs about the art and science of putting. It is my bible or if you prefer, my notebook or data log  book-into which I have transcribed my thoughts, interpretations of test results, observations, and theoretical work that have been instrumental in forming my understanding of putting. It is also from this work that I draw my philosophy for teaching the putting game in the Dave Pelz Scoring Game Schools".      As far as the 8 seconds is concerned, and with apologies to Mr. Pelz let me summarize on page 122 5.6 Two Types of Muscle Memory Ridding a bicycle is one type of memory (long term) you never really forget. Your mind remembers only the body's most recent sensations (short term memory), and these, too, fade by 30 percent every 8 seconds. True or not I will still take his word for it. As it was done as scientific research. "about as accurate as the story of Noah's Ark"...............don't know, can't say, wasn't there, but will say this. If a booming voice coming out of the sky tells me to build a boat....trust me, I'm building a boat!!
