I wore a batting glove on each hand, I wore WR/DB gloves in high school, it's only natural I wear a glove on the course. I do remove the glove when putting.

A glove is a must for me...... whether it's a hot/humid day or not. When it is hot/humid day, a fresh glove is an absolute must. I always immediately remove it between shots to keep it as dry and sweat free/fresh as possible, and never putt wearing a glove.
On hot days, I'll rotate between multiple gloves! I'll save the new/fresh glove for drives and long shots. I'll use a slightly older glove for shorter iron shots. I am a lefty that is particular about which type of gloves I wear. No pro-shop I have ever visited regularly stocks the "top of the line" gloves for lefties, so I order mine 6 at a time in advance!! I buy them by the box so I always have what I need. When I get down to 1-2 new gloves in my bag, I'll order 6 more.
I used to wear holes in my gloves and I thought that was normal but I've been using the same glove for at least a couple dozen rounds now and it's not developing a hole in the palm like it used to. In fact, aside from some discoloration and stretching it looks like it's not wearing at all while I play. I was pretty excited about this when I noticed it a couple weeks ago because I think it means I'm on the right track as far as grip. I'll still probably keep using a glove though since I like the feel of it.
I'm a newbie. Started w/one golf glove while driving but, I was practicing so much, I switched to wear batting gloves on both hands for a better grip and to prevent blisters. Wear the gloves regardless of the club, except when chipping/pitching or putting. Will probably lose the 2nd glove after I learn how to properly relax my grip/swing but in the meantime it seems to help me to wear both.
I have always worn a glove, but one day recently I decided to hit at the range without one. I seemed to hit the ball better, but haven't tried it out on the course yet. It's still hot here in MI, so once I'm not sweating my ass off while playing, I'm going to give it a shot. I will say that the Nike all-weather gloves are AMAZING in rainy wet conditions. The wetter they get the better they grip.
Yeah I have those gigantic Titleist mittens for that. No winter golf for me this year unless temps top 50.
Dollar Store cooking mittens for me. They slip on, and off well over my golf gloves.
You're a righty but your right index finger gets beat up?
Plenty of pros and cons for wearing a golf glove.
Personally, I would love to go gloveless, because it would reduce my cost of playing golf. But, as a young man I hit a lot of balls, and wearing a glove reduced damage to my left hand. Believe me, I've tried playing without a glove, but it just doesn't feel right. C'est la vie.
