Golf Gloves Are Useless


Recommended Posts

Like most of you, I always thought wearing gloves for golf makes no sense.  A mans hands are hardened from work, so whats the point.  its a waste of $5.

My mom invited me to golf with her and her boss.  She wanted me to go to act like her husband since she was always telling her boss how good looking her husband was and my dad is really old and dresses like a skank and NOT good looking.  But he got a reel kind heart and wears it on his sleeve all the itme

Mom got me a whole golf outfit to wear and a glove?  I was ok with the outfit she chose out for me, but the cardboard paper tags from the shirt and shorts dug into my skin all day.  

I told her I wasn't wearing a glove and then she made me.  When the round was over I had sweat literally dripping from inside the glove and running down my arm.  Plus the velcro dug all the skin off the back of my hand (the front of the hands are tough, not the back), because she bought them for the wrong hands and i had to wear both gloves inside out to make the "work".

It was worth it becuse at the end her boss looked at me and just smiled and told me how prooud he was and how tough I was.  But it doens't matter because I don't even respect him.

Does anybody hear bother with golf gloves.  The only sports I wore gloves for was baseball and wrestling, just for the grip, but there is literally no point for golfers other than some of the points I pointed out above.

That’s why. Hot and sweaty hands require extra friction. I use rain gloves when it’s hot. When it’s nice out, I don’t wear a glove though.

Your mistake is taking any of this seriously.

$5? Only if your buying the 3 pack at Costco. I prefer to keep my velvety smooth hands untouched from actually having to grip the club.

Aloha

I fell for it, and it wasn’t even close to being serious. I figured, well, you never can tell with folks these days. Haha. Gullible moment. I guess I’m often too literal.

I only wear a glove when using my ball retriever that is in serious need of a new grip. Do you have a recommendation on what grip would be best if I wanted to try to qualify for the US Open?

We all wear pears of latex gloves for every round, COVID-19 and all.  Talk about hot AND slippery.

Was that course one of the Forest Akers?  Seems that area had some difficulty controlling parties.

There's an elephant?

Only with gloves on. Sans gloves and the yips creep in. It's all very sad.

Does the elephant use a bag to carry his clubs? Or does he use his trunk?

    • In reality, 10 year old irons especially GI irons really aren’t much different then their new counterparts. Realistically you might gain a yard. And your dispersion might be a little tighter. You can upgrade, but it’s Indian not the arrow. I just bought a left handed pitching wedge from Goodwill for a buck... just to mess around with... A good fitting is important and essential don’t get wrong. But when all is said an done, lessons and then a good fitting with improve your game.
    • Hello and welcome to TST. What one may gain from updating clubs can vastly vary. Club head technology has certainly improved with the ability to get the ball in the air and to be a bit more forgiving than older models. The shaft plays a very important role as well, maybe even more important which is why a fitting can be very beneficial. As far as expectations…hard to say. But at the very least you’ll know you’re optimizing one area of your game by having the best irons for you. Cheers.
    • Unless you have undergone swing changes I wouldn't expect any change at all.  The lofts might be stronger which could make you think you've gained distance when you haven't. 10 year old cavity back irons of good quality aren't much different from brand new ones. Your golf doesn't improve when you get new irons unless you were playing something with the wrong shaft or clubs with little or no built-in forgiveness.
    • That’s up to the respective governments to determine. Many countries only require proof of a negative test. 
    • I am sure that it wouldn't be mandated. I don't think one should be allowed to travel internationally without proof of vaccination.
