1) How often do you replace your glove?
2) If it rains, and soaks the glove, is the glove ruined?
Where do you get these velcro strips? I've seen many guys at my club doing the same.
Yeah, I was playing with a worn-out glove and it was affecting my grip on the club. I changed the glove and went on to shoot my best round the next time I played. (6 strokes lower than my average score).
I rotate my gloves like I rotate my tennis shoes. After they start wearing out, the old shoes become yard shoes. My gloves rotate into a practice glove for another week or two then get pitched.
I buy Sta-Sof Footjoys on Ebay here and there. At Dick's they're about $20.00 a piece + tax but on Ebay you can get them about 40% cheaper on Auctions.
Everytime I peg somebody in another fairway with an errant drive, I give them the glove I was wearing (with my autograph, of course) and break out a new one.
(Seriously though, I wear mine until it gets a hole - usually in the thumb. I also store it in a ziploc bag so its not all dry/crunchy each time I take it back out. Don't know if that does anything for its life span, but it stays softer at least)
EDIT: Sorry, I forgot to ask ... What's rain??
When I wore a glove, until it started to get hard... I probably could get more use than I did but I liked having them in fairly "new" condition.
However, for the past month or so I've been going gloveless and love it. In the summer out here it's real hot (118° yesterday) and I keep a towel soaked in ice water to cool off... I got tired of taking my glove on and off to use it so I ditched the glove and couldn't be happier.
I replace it when I get a hole or else it no longer grips the club well.
I do not play the constant glove-on, glove off game that many people play when they got close to or on the green, which I feel
1) Wastes time pulling a glove one or off;
2) Wears out the glove faster;
3) Gives me a worse grip on the club when temperatures are 90+* -- on a recent 98* day, I kept having to wipe off my bare right hand but did not have an issue with sweat effecting my grip with my gloved left hand.
4) Has no appreciable impact on my chipping or putting, whatsoever. I cannot recall ever having my putter slip or otherwise strike the ball in a manner I did not intend because of how my gloved left hand was holding on to the putter grip - my putts that I miss are because of alignment issues, underestimating or overestimating the break (I am guilty of the latter most of the time) or having the wrong speed on the putt. I suspect that this is true for 99% of the people on this board, regardless of how they talk about improved feel with bare hands.
