Hi, does anyone have any particular favourites when it comes to a pair of thermal golf gloves, and if so why? I’m thinking of getting a pair but would want them reasonably thin I think as I’m not used to wearing two gloves (like most of us I suspect). I’ll be buying online hence no opportunity to try them on beforehand. Many thanks.

Hi Dan ... You're in Wales so I'd recommend Marigolds! - On a serious note, I always bought Footjoy WinterSof, which certainly keep your hands warm - It took a while to get used to there being two gloves to wear, but they are reasonably thin (nothing like leather sadly, but you do have to compromise to keep warm) - I tried a pair of Under Armour winter gloves & hated them (far too cumbersome) so I went back to WinterSof last season & unless I find something better, will stick with them for the foreseeable ... Paul
PS - Before someone suggests over-mitts, tried them, but was always dropping them / losing them, so no good for a old geezer like me obviously!

I have used both the Footjoy WinterSof and the Mizuno Thermal Gloves. Both have negatives in my eye.
The Footjoy Wintersof being the worse of the two, it does keep the hands quite warm but I had absolutely no Grip with them they were very slippery and I have tried a few pair. Also for some reason no matter what size I bought the stitching always tore apart after 2 or 3 swings then letting all the cold in. Not using these anymore but maybe they just didn't work for me.
The Mizuno Thermal Gloves do have much better Grip and they are quite longlasting. They keep the hands reasonably warm AS LONG AS they are dry. As soon as even one drop of water gets on the outside of those, it goes inside the Gloves and your hands will forever feel cold. I usually have to put them off when that happens because my hands are then warmer without them on. But as long as it's just cold but dry they are fantastic. Not usable for dizzy rainy miserable weather though.
Hope that helps in some regard.

I concur with MrK, I've resorted to just having a pair of mittens and a normal glove. The mittens are guaranteed to keep my hands warm, I get my normal feel on the club and those are easier to take off when you need to.

Thanks. Always useful to hear the experience of others. Think I’ll maybe buy two pairs with a view to sending one back. I already have FJ wet/rain gloves (maybe I’ll consider Marigolds next time Paul) so was after a pair for cold but not wet. I also have mittens so maybe I just need to man up. Cheers again for the replies.

I've had a pair of Under Armour gloves in the bag for quite a while. Good value for money and they do the job. If it gets too bad and the big mitts are needed, then the clubhouse becons. I no longer play in cold , wet weather ;)
