The Best Winter Golf Gloves

By Steve Silverman

There are many serious golfers who are not going to let cold weather stop them. In the Northeast, East, Midwest and West, many golfers will continue to play through late fall all the way into winter. But concessions have to be made when playing in winter conditions. One is in the golf glove that must be worn. In addition to helping the golfer grip the club, it must also absorb the shock and sting that comes with hitting the ball in nasty weather conditions.

Mizuno ThermaGrip

This glove has the ability to keep the golfer's hand dry and warm even when playing in harsh conditions. The Cabretta leather palm always stays soft and supple and repels water. It has a snug Velcro closure to keep the hand dry and secure.

FootJoy WinterSof Glove

The FootJoy WinterSof glove is designed to offer insulation and protection from the elements while still giving the golfer a distinct feel for the club with his lead hand in the swing. It has Thinsulate insulation along with a Velcro strap to keep the wind from whistling into the glove. The glove also has a soft Cabretta leather palm to make sure the golfer still gets to make subtle adjustments in his grip for each shot. 

Zero Restriction Windstopper Winter Gloves

Though pricey, Zero Restriction's Windstopper's Winter Gloves are made of 100% Pittards leather to provide complete waterproofing and superior warmth. In order to make the gloves playable, elastic inserts are placed between the fingers and at the knuckle joints. In addition, an inner lining provides extra warmth to serve the needs of winter golfers.
