Golf glove or no glove??? - Page 2

Re: Golf glove or no glove???

No glove here. I find that bare hands offer more grip.

Definitely a glove. I get blisters on my hand if I don't wear one.

Have you ever tried bear hands?

I give golf companies more than enough of my money already. I'm not paying 15 dollars for one paper-thin leather glove.

Always gloves other than wedge shots and putts.

Not without mid-size grips I haven't.

Re: Golf glove or no glove???

my gloves must be malfunctioning because if I wear one it will last about 4 holes and then its soaked and doesn't provide more grip, but less. I take it off and start hitting better shots so I think I'm gonna start going without and see how that works out for me.

Re: Golf glove or no glove???

I have messed up hands and have to wear two gloves for everything including putting. I'd love to play without gloves, but I wouldn't make it past the 2nd tee.

Re: Golf glove or no glove???

I wore an old glove too long and started to blister up on my thumb after extended sessions at the range. I know that I tend to grip too tightly which adds tension, but even when I don't, I get a sore thumb. I need a glove.

I like the glove. I've played a few holes without, but it just doesn't feel right.

Did you start playing golf with a glove? Do you have stock grips? If you ever decided to go gloveless full time, you might have to tinker with various grips.

I started the game gloveless. A couple seasons later I started wearing a glove because everyone said I needed one - that always felt wrong to me, so I see your point.

Re: Golf glove or no glove???

So do you play with a glove or without one? Gloves don't "fit like a glove" for my hand, I'm not sure why. I think the majority of "rubs" and the occasional blister are caused by the glove. I really liked Golf Pride's Tour Wrap 2g grips (have stock grips right now) and was thinking if I were to put those on I might be able to just go gloveless.

Re: Golf glove or no glove???

I need a glove, I am one of those guys who has sweaty hands during the hot and humid days, I find the glove helps.

Re: Golf glove or no glove???

I use a glove always, but I still have the stock grips on all my clubs. I'm thinking about getting them re-gripped (it's been almost two years since I bought all of them). Pretty excited about that. I'm sticking with the glove for now though. I enjoy the ritual of putting it on and taking it off between shots as I plan my next move.

Me too, but when I dropped the glove, I couldn't be happier with not having to fiddle with it all the time.

Re: Golf glove or no glove???

No glove. Keep one handy, but barely use it. Even on the range, no glove, but after 100 balls, I'll need some tape. If I go on a range bender, then the hands get pretty raw and red, but still playable. No problem with chipping or pitching. Figure I saved $50/year over many years not buying gloves regularly.

No glove... Better?

I have found that I hit it better and more consistent without wearing a golf glove.  Especially with my irons.  Anyone experienced the same?  It may be that my grip is looser, but not sure.

I only wear a glove when it is very cold or very hot.  I prefer no glove because I feel it lets my hands work better together.  Otherwise I feel the glove hand sticks to the non gloved and I get a binding.  Not sure id that makes sense but it works for me.
