I wear a glove for two reasons:

* It helps me anchor the club in the left hand more consistently.

* I have dry skin, and the glove helps keep away blisters. The Bionic Glove is really good for this. (Note: the synthetic gloves seem to irritate my skin more, and don't last very long.)

 

Leather gloves will last longer if you wash them every few weeks to get grime out of them. I use saddle soap to restore leather moisture.

No glove, except occasionaly rain gloves when I MUST play in the rain.

I totally agree when I first got the golf bug I would play in a blizzard let alone rain. Now I have come to my senses and only play in the rain when in a tournament or if I get caught in the rain and it doesn't take much for me to bag a round if the rain gets heavy.

No glove, it never feels right. Even in below freezing temps, the cold weather gloves stay in the bag-unless someone I'm playing with wants to use them.

No glove for me for a couple of reasons, just another expense I don't want to incur, just another piece of equipment I have to maintain, I hated taking them off and on, and I think I have better feel for the club without a glove.  In the summer months, my gloves would be so soaked with sweat that I wouldn't use them, which I found out I just didn't need them.  I also use a corded grip and have for many years, I just don't feel a glove is necessary for me.

I used a glove for many years and switched to no glove for a couple of years.  Last year I went back to wearing a glove.  I feel that it gives me more stability and power.  I had the tendency to be too handsy on the backwing and follow through.  Even if it is just mental, for me it has improved my ball striking.

I wish I didn't need a glove but I do. My palms sweat like crazy, its kinda gross. My wife won't even hold hands with me!

 

I also only use cord grips for the same reason. My hands are full of calluses but at least I can hold onto the club.
