Nope. You keep your hands in big warm mittens until you're ready to throw. Right after the throw you put the mittens right back on. Some opt for handwarmers inside the mittens, but I'm not sure they're necessary. Since using this method I've never had cold hands playing disc golf. If your hands do get cold during a round you're screwed. Say goodbye to your putting game. I wish I could have used that excuse for me performance last saturday!
