Mechanix Gloves

11 posts in this topic

Im going to go out on a limb and say im the only one who uses Mechanix gloves, yes the velcro strap ones you get from autozone. (hold back laughter)

I cant stand golf gloves- way too thin and are almost immediately drenched in sweat.

If you think thats a good one, let me tell you about how i use hockey grip tape on my driver grips.

I play left handed and due to my baseball days I'm only comfortable if I wear gloves on both hands.  It's hard to find golf gloves for both hands so I've used batting gloves.

You know, that's worth a try for me, so no laughter here!

I work outside for a living and wear leather work gloves all the time. So only wearing a single Golf glove, regardless of sweat, heat etc. just doesn't feel right. I go through two pairs a year, this might just be my answer. I'm not out there to make an fashion statement anyway.

Next week when I get paid is "Oil Change day" so I'll be at Autozone anyway. I'll take a look at them, too bad I think my season is basically over for this year. :cry:

Thanks...

I never though I'd be able to grip a club well without a glove, boy was I wrong. Into my second season with no glove and I can't believe how much money I wasted on gloves!! Way better to spend that money on new grips.

My only concern would be that Mechanix gloves would be too thick.  Before I moved to Ohio, I used to heat my home with firewood, as well as having a sizeable yard to maintain, so I used to wear Mechanix gloves all the time.  Theyre great for dampening vibration but Im not sure that Id want to use them for golf, too thick.

To be fair though, you dont live in a place that has hot, humid summers; so grip isnt as big of a concern for you.

I have played in humid conditions and rain with no glove. Its fine just wipe the grip with a towel.

I have gone no glove as well. Took it off to putt, for better feel, then started taking it off for the same reason to chip, then to pitch, then went full monty. No regrets,  use a softer tackier type grip, simple green it once in a while and it feels great.

..and yest I know my weather is ideal, but I have sweated a couple of times ;-)

Well thats kinda the reason I use them - but im used to hockey gloves)

and Hotrodjrd , yah Batting Gloves were my first choice, but had none laying around - - i figure might as well go the batting glove route as you can add a bit of style if you so choose.

ill probably end up playing with something like this:
