Re: Golf in winter - what do you wear.

i go in layers and that seems to work for me...
thermals/underarmor...
long sleeve tee or turtleneck...
collared shirt/polo...
if its really cold then my next layer is a pullover sweatshirt...
then my pull over jacket...
nfl cap and beanie over cap...
thick socks...
i have winter gloves that i take off and put on my regular golf glove to hit shots

Re: Golf in winter - what do you wear.

Whenever it's cold outside, a turtle neck is a must to keep your body heat in. Generally, I wear a light polo or tee shirt, with a turtle neck on top of that. When it is breezy, I will also wear a sleeveless jacket on top of that. If I wear a regular jacket, I can't swing as freely as too much layer on my arms is not conducive to my swing.

Its all about layers.
When its 40-50* I will just wear a sweatshirt over a t-shirt and slacks. Its plenty to keep me warm.
When its 30-40*, I will wear a beanie (because a lot of heat escapes out the top of your head) and then I will wear a sweatshirt and a long-sleeve shirt under it and then I will wear some kind of cold weather golf gloves.

I am big fan of the Under Armour themal compression fit turtle neck - keeps me very warm with little over top of it. Layers is must as I tee of early and on hour into the round I have to peel a few things off. If it is raining the FJ rain gloves work great!

Re: Golf in winter - what do you wear.

most of the time in the winter I wear shorts and short sleeve shirt. Once in a while I have to wear pants, a long sleeve shirt and maybe a hoodie. Less often than that, I wears long handles under my pants, two long sleeve shirts, and a rain coat, with a sock hat and some gloves. If it colder than that, I go to a strip club and then it's all about titties and beer. (also a good song.. Google it).

Man, I love Central Texas in the Winter.

Well said! Similar weather in SoCal, but I layer differently than you except we both agree on the "coldest" level.

We don't get the random rainfall you guys get in TX. I still haven't played a round in the rain, I really want to though!

Layer with a inner mock and sweat shirt, cashmere if possible, outer wear and sometime thermo under wear depending on how cold knit cap, you lose 80% of your heat from your head and finally a handwarmer and hot tea or hot chocolate

Mock, a light sweater or LS polo, and windbreaking shell. Thats about it. It works for me down to freezing temps. I walk even when i do play in the winter, so you keep warm by just doing that. Below 40, ill probably wear some thermal leggings as well.

What do you guys wear in the winter.

What you were in 50-55 degree weather- I wear shorts and a wind shirt.

What you were in 30-50 weather- Jeans and a fleece with a t-shirt underneath. If it gets close to 30 or lower it is usually fleece with long sleeve t-shirt of some kind. If windy a jacket over the fleece.

Depends. Winter here can be 40's, or it can be 70's. We had 15 inches of snow late last week, tomorrow I'm playing and the temperature will be in the mid 70's... so I'll be wearing shorts. Most often slacks or (gasp) jeans in the winter, and my upper wear depends on the sun and wind and temperature. I usually layer so I can adjust as need be.

Two gloves
Layers,I am learning black layers are bad, a cloud moves and your cooking.
I am trying the ear band thing but my hats don't fit over it well.
Twill pants rather than the summer microfibers.

Re: Golf in winter - what do you wear.

I go for the 'deer hunting redneck' look when it gets in the 40's and below, namely a ski cap, blue jeans, and a thermal under a cheap collared shirt (my good ones seem to get torn up when I wear a thermal under them, not sure why). As long as you're comfortable and can play well, it doesn't matter how you're dressed in winter - usually when it's cold enough you'll pretty much have the course to yourself anyway.
