Wearing holes in my golf gloves - Page 2

The driver, wedge and putter have factory Taylormade and Ping grips. The irons have some kind of firm rubber grip on them (they were replaced a couple of years ago I would guess). I'm not totally in tune to all the different grip styles/types, so I really don't know what I have. Most of what I'm using are my father-in-law's clubs.

Re: Wearing holes in my golf gloves

Took me two years and many lessons to learn the correct grip because it's NOT INTUITIVE. My gloves turn black but never have holes or even wear areas anymore.

Does anybody have a blister on the top of the ring finger of their right hand ? I have one that persists even with a very loose grip.

A proper grip will also give you better control of the club during the swing.
My gloves used to wear in the spot (not nearly that fast) until I moved my hands down a little, 1/2 inch sounds about right. I take my right hand off the club after impact and that allowed the end of the grip to dig into the golve on my left hand.

To bring back an old post again...

I also have this blister on the R ring finger. I am pretty sure it is from interlocking and from your ring finger moving across the L index finger mid knuckle during the swing. I have to think it is bad and would also like to figure out how to stop it.

That was one of the reasons I switch to the overlapp grip. My little finger also would hurt when I played alot of golf.

I'm always fighting a tendency to collapse my left arm just prior to impact, which allows my left wrist to collapse and produces duck hooks off the toe. I've recently been concentrating on maintaining a firm left arm through impact, keeping the left wrist flat or slightly bowed at impact. My shots have improved, but this glove thing is new, so I know I'm doing something wrong.

I've never had this problem before and I know these gloves aren't defective because I've worn holes in the last six I've purchased.

Any ideas of what I'm doing wrong? I can't help but think my grip must be defective, allowing the club to twist in my left hand during the swing.

Where should a golf glove show signs of wear or stress if the player is gripping the club properly?

Thank you
My glove will wear in a similar pattern, but not that quickly. Ill get a tear in the palm after a month or more of regular use. My guess is that you might be re gripping during your swing like you thought. Or you might be gripping too tightly and you would also see alot of wear in the thumb.

Re: Wearing holes in my golf gloves

The real reason the gloves get holes in them is your holding the very end of the club. If you look at the club when you grip it the end will be right at the hole. choke down about an inch. watch the pro's they don't hold the very end of a club,they always choke down a bit.

1/8" to 1/4" clear of your left hand should be enough unless you are doing something else wrong.

If you're tired of buying new gloves while you work out this issue try putting a bit of duct tape on the spot that tears.

 

It's hardy stuff -- not as tacky as the glove, but if it's only a (relatively) small piece it shouldn't make a difference. 

 

And if you don't want the 'classy' silver duct-tape look, I know they sell a lot of different colors and 'team-logo' duct tape these days too.

 

I have only done this twice. It worked best when I put the duct tape on before the hole arrived.

Does anyone here know what could be the reason there is a total wear on my left thumb ? ( I am a right handed golfer ).

 

I have almost zero wear on the rest of the parts of the glove. Only the left thumb !

I wear holes in the same location and my Pro tells me it is 100% grip pressure.  Way too tight I guess.

I was wearing big holes in my glove within 100 balls.  I could put on a brand new glove and put a hole in it the size of a quarter within an hour at the driving range.  This kept happening over and over again.  The hole was always on the palm, closest to my pinky finger.

 

For months I thought it was because I gripped the club too hard, held it too close to the end, or had too small of a glove.  Working on those issues didn't seem to have any effect on my problem though.

 

Then someone at Golfsmith explained to me that this was being caused by my glove actually being too loose.  I switched from a large/extra large to a medium/large.  This new size glove is definitely a tight fit, but my problem was completely solved instantly. 

 

Hope this helps some of you out there...
