Wearing Two Gloves

25 posts in this topic

Does anybody at any time wear two golf gloves?

Sometimes I wear two when practicing or if I have been playing like 4 days in a row and have been hitting numerous balls in a short period of time. I was just curious to see if anyone else does the same or If I'm just kinda weird.

Only the winterized gloves in colder weather near the end of the season.

Does anybody at any time wear two golf gloves?

Actually I do wear gloves on both hands for all full swing shots. My reason is arthritis in the fingers of both of my hands, so keeping the glove on the right hand as well as the left helps dampen the vibration and reduces soreness. Another thing that has helped me this year on this is getting oversized grips on my clubs; I can pretty much play 18 now without wincing during the last few holes. I take the gloves off for chipping and putting. It is a bit of a nuisance with the extra glove, but worth it to me to minimize the soreness.

I never have, but if I said I'd never considered it, I'd be lying. I've thought about it on the really hot days when I'm sweating like crazy.

To be 100% honest, I've thought about ditching golf gloves in favor of some good batting gloves. They're so much tackier, and it seems like they'd make a difference. Why dont golf gloves have the tackiness that batting gloves do? And has anyone else ever thought about this?? I kinda thought I was out of my mind until a good buddy of mine told me he had thought about it before too.

because when you are decent, golf is a game of feel... and having your bare skin on the grip makes a difference

As mentioned... two regular gloves on cold days (someone once gave me a dozen right-hand gloves they had inadvertently bought on Ebay.)

I have thought the exact same thing about batting gloves, but I always figured that there was a reason that golf gloves were different.

LOL, I'll try it if you try it!!!

Can anyone answer that?? Is there any reason why golf gloves arent more like batting gloves? If I remember correctly, the Easton gloves I wore way back were made of cabretta, like golf gloves are, but out of the box, they had a lot more tack to them. That was before pine tar got involved too. It seems like it would make sense...

I how often wondered the same question. I played alot of baseball and thought about using golf gloves all the time. Right now I'm using one of the cheap intec cabertta leather gloves, hey there only 4.99. After playing a round of 9 holes sometimes 18 a day after awhile my hands get beat up. and at the driving range. Its not near as bad when I played baseball. But I often wondered if wearing two gloves would at least help my other hand. Do you lose feel? I'm not really sure if I should. What do you think?

I'm currently using 2 FJ golf gloves and I haven't lost much if any feel. I've found that it does help with the wear and tear on my right hand though.

Ditto, except my rain gloves are FJ. And I have a Nike pair in my backup bag.

No gloves here. Though I wish I had a pair of cart mittens from time to time.

Only wore two with my FJ rain gloves and it felt odd. The most I will do is run some sports tape on my right hand ring finger between the knuckles. Reminds me to grip softly and keeps the blisters if I'm playing back to back.

Yeah Tommy was born in my hometown and there always seems to be stories about his great rounds around here. But yeah he wears two gloves all the time, even when putting. Its crazy!

I did forget that part - I dont wear gloves when putting or taking shots with any wedge, and sometimes 9i as well.

And I do have the GP New Decades on my irons, but like I said before, I sweat a good bit, and I pretty much have to have a glove on, or else I might end up killing a squirrel in a tree when the club slips out of my hands!

    • I started playing when I was 3 or 4yrs old, I don't really know.  But I was breaking 90 by age 14.  
    • It's fine that he apologized. I think better of him for doing that than had he not. But he's still earned a net negative in this whole thing, and I think he was speaking honestly before. He thinks the USGA is punishing him or something, when they're just enforcing the same old rules.
    • For me the range is about coping with some performance anxiety. I have some serious anxiety and obsessive compulsiveness when it comes to anything competitive. And the range allows me the option to freely express my pursuit of excellence. A lot of the time I prefer the range because I can focus inwardly and really feel different things.     
    • Inferno - Struggled to make par. Hanks kept the story going but they left a lot of the charm of the book out. Manchester By The Sea - Birdie. Excellent acting and the accents were much better than some other Boston movies (I'm talking to you Marky Mark). It is not a feel good movie, just to warn those who have not seen it.
    • Just a Sunday morning commentary about selling used clubs and offered trades.  I currently have a set of irons posted for sale locally. For some reason the PGA ValueGuide shows my clubs a little higher than I would have thought. I've checked at Dick's/GolfGalaxy for trade-in value and get different answers depending upon which store I go to and who I talk with. I suspect the sales people and golf department workers are quoting from either the retail column or trade-in column or wholesale column. In any case their offers don't quite get me where I need to be towards a newer set of clubs.    So recently a local guy offered a Scotty Cameron putter in trade and he referred to the PGA guide to coax me into my clubs plus cash for his putter. I looked up his putter and the valueguide actually shows it slightly less than my clubs, but I suspect an anomoly on my club values. I don't know if he has the head cover for his putter, but I do know that there are too many stolen putters floating around. I'm not saying his putter is stolen, just that when it comes to high demand/priced putters I tend to add caution to my dealings. Anyway, I then looked up reviews on his putter and found one from this site from around 2011 where the general concensus seemed to be marginal or unfavorable for various reasons.    In any case, I passed on the trade offer. But now I'm curious if there is a stolen putter database someplace. And if my clubs don't sell and if I can't get a workable trade-in locally, then I'll just use them this season. Just that sometimes horse-trades get some interesting offers. I recently sold an electric guitar and amp on craigslist and someone offered me a set of china dishes for it, I passed and found a cash buyer, which got me closer to funding new golf clubs.    Anyway, it is Sunday morning, I'm on my first cup of coffee, the local golf show is still a few weeks away, and it snowed yesterday, and in this past week the local temps have hit a high of 71degF and are currently around 19degF. And sometimes I type too much, sorry if I rambled, back to watching a recorded School of Golf and day dreaming of when the local courses open.
