The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

At the round of winter, I occasionally use gloves.
Do you use gloves during play?
Are the gloves gloves of which the tip of a finger has gone out?

The sense of the hand is very important.
i try not to use gloves, i really like to have a good feel of the disc. But here in michigan its gets really cold. so i bought a pair of gloves(mittens), the fingers unsnap and snap back onto the hand. there very convienent and keep my hands warm. good luck and have a great season!
I use jersey gloves, on my throwing hand all of the fingers are cut out, keeps my hand warm and I can still grip the disc.
No just my pockets and some hand warmers does the trick.
Thank you for the comment.
Do a lot of snows fall though it is cold in Michigan, too?
The player that uses your way gloves is seen.
The last few years it has snowed alot. it only snowed once this year so far. i enjoy playin in the cold and snow,as long as im dressed for it, its quiet and theres not too many people out there.
The enjoyment of Discgolf of winter is a different thing.
The snow doesn't get off the place where I live too much.
However, because the wind is cold, gloves are necessary.
In cool weather, I use standard Bike riding gloves.
Yes, Snowboarding Gloves with Thinsulate.
They make my hands sweat in any temperature.
I remove them to throw. My hands will stay warm enough for a short time to throw.
Then I put them back on quickly before the chill can sink in.
They look funny here in Sunny Florida, but sometimes it gets cold enough to carry them during the round.
I have carried the Hand warmer that Jamie is talking about. These can make your hands sweaty too.
Heat up, Sweat, Towel off, Throw. The routine on a frigid day.
It does not stay Cold in Florida for too long. Very Rare. Winter is the Best time to play in Florida!
Come on over for a Great Vacation and visit the Worlds Largest Disc Golf Store before you throw!
I tried to keep one glove on while throwing but found I need the feeling of Both hands to get everything just right. I use my left hand to insure my angle of release, both in driving and putting.
It just holds the disc for awhile before I release, and I can feel what the angle is better with 2 hands than one...!
Michigan gets Extra snow because of All the Lakes.
It is called "Lake Effect Snow"
The kind of Snow that closes all of the schools for the day!
