I used to wear a glove for all shots until I got close to the green (removing it between shots so it would last longer and so I'd avoid the white left hand golf tan!).

Same thing here but I wear my glove all the time.  In the summer I have to take my left hand to the tanning booth to keep it as evenly tanned as the right.  Joking.  I live in the Northwest... there is no sun in the summer.

Similar to @FlyingAce, I wear 2 FJ raingrip gloves for every shot except for putting.

I use a glove for all full shots, but it comes off for any shot around the green and for putting. I prefer Titleist Players gloves because they are all leather palm and back of the hand. I hate gloves that use that synthetic leather crap. 

I wish I didn't have to use a glove, but my palms sweat so bad I can't hold on to the club otherwise.

I used to wear a glove 100% of the time, just because I didn't like taking it on and off. Recenty, I have gone to no glove, and I plan to stick with that, weather allowing.

I'm fortunate to live in a very temperate area, so sweat and humidity are not an issue for me gripping the club. I do have winter/rain gloves to use when necessary.

Okay, this should be about the least controversial polls of all time.

I noticed the other day that I only put my golf glove on if I'm hitting the driver or metal wood (usually, but not always including my hybrids). A gentleman I was playing with never took his glove off the entire round. He even wore it while putting. 

When do you use a golf glove... or do you use one? 

Yeah, only off around the greens. I had one glove last 6 months. No signs of wear but it was definitely beginning to take on life forms. So, my partners would wince when I took it off. 😂

I've never played with a glove, but have thought about it this year as this is the first year that I got semi-serious about the game. I picked up the habit from my dad, and he was and I am still a fan of Fred Couples. I don't know if that was the reason my dad never wore one, or if it was because he was cheap, but it stuck with me. I haven't had an issue with it, even in light rain this year, so I don't know if I will switch or not this coming year.

I was surprised to see that quite a few others chose the same poll option as myself. I figured that everyone used one, at least on some shots.

I play with two gloves and remove them at green side for last chips and putting. I were 2 gloves as my right hand suffers with arthritis. Glove allows the fingers re-oritent themselves that I am ablate make a fairly solid grip.

Voted for never take it off, but that isn't entirely true.  As a rule of thumb I will wear it for all shots, but I sometimes wind up taking it off as I am approaching the green because of sweat and will play delicate chip/pitch shots or putts without the glove.  I never worried about the glove on for any stroke, even putting.  Just habit I guess

    • Hello everyone I used to be active here until my place was burglarized in Dallas TX and my entire golf gear, among other things, was stolen. Following the burglary and the pandemic I lost my motivation to play golf. Last week I moved to Vegas, and today my wonderful wife ordered a new set for my upcoming birthday. It is an all Taylormade M2 set which was on discount at Dick's; my goal is to play with that product price range until I score in the 80s again. I will only buy better clubs after I consistently hit below 80, if necessary. I am now looking for good golf courses in the Summerlin area and hope to join a community where I can find likeminded folks to play with regularly. My flexible job enables me to play in the afternoons during the week and all day on weekends. Vegas has transformed a lot. The Raiders built a stadium here, residential areas have grown and lots of master planned communities were built. Nice to be back on TST, it is the best golf community on the web! Nave
    • I have just as much fun playing by the rules, as not. Hell, probably more...
    • Nice!  Olinger can get around the table!  
    • DAY 1  December 4   Due to a pinched nerve in my mid-back, I have not been able to practice for a little more than a week.  So starting again at Day 1!!  Spent a couple of hours on the range, alternating between hitting balls with my feet together (to work on balance and rotating around my thoracic spine) and working with the Swingwyde to focus on swing plane and proper cocking and uncocking of the wrists.  Then spent about an hour on short pitches... which was a total waste of time... chunking, blading, etc.  I have now decided that I need to find a new instructor to help me with this.....  now to sleep and back to the grind in the morning.  The positive part is that I am hitting my irons and full swing wedges so much better than a couple of months ago -- my swing, contact, low point, etc all continue to improve.
