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!

    • You are a tad close. I would say the ball is about a ball width too close. When you move the ball away don't adjust to that by bending over at the waist more.  Even still, the ball looks to be in the middle of your stance. That is not a good ball placement for a 6 iron. I would say it's two ball widths to far back. Hover your mouse icon over the text A4 . 
    • Sorry we'll miss you, @Big C.  If this one is remotely successful, I'll try to see to it that one happens in winter (organizing it myself if I need to), and hopefully you can join us then. 
    • I do not like hot temperatures... at all.  Being from the northeast, if it got above 90 degrees, you'd find me stationed in front of the nearest window air conditioner.  Then I moved south and I quickly realized that if I took that mentality, I wouldn't do anything for 2/3 of the year.  

      Last September, I played a round during a weekday at a local course in 98 degree temperatures.  As I usually do, I packed 2 frozen waters, 2 unfrozen waters and 2 sports drinks.  I had learned earlier in the year that I need 128 ounces of fluids, at a minimum, during rounds in warm weather.  I almost never walk (puts too much strain on my knees throughout a round and I can't move the next day), and that day was no different.  I took a cart and found shade as much as possible.  

      I had been drinking more water than normal that day.  All 4 waters and the sports drinks were gone by the 14th hole.  No cart girl on the course that day.  I started looking for a water cooler on the 16th hole because I was starting to feel a little weak.  The only place I had seen to get water was at the comfort station between the 11th and 12th holes, but it was from a water fountain that had brown tinted water, so I figured I'd be find to make it the last 3 holes with no problems.  15 minutes later, after I hit my approach shot on the 17th hole, I told my cart partner that I'd walk up the path in the shade.  Truth was, I was felling really sick at that point and I didn't want to vomit from the cart.

      I sat on a rock off the edge of the path and things got REALLY dark REALLY quick.  Sounds were muffled.  I was dizzy.  

      The guys in the other cart stopped to see if I was okay.  I told them I wasn't and that I felt off.  I knew I needed water.  Luckily, one of them had a bottle of water in his bag and offered it to me.  I slowly sipped it and the other guy went to my cart and grabbed an ice pack out of my cooler so I could put it on my neck.  It took about 5 minutes before I could stand up.  

      After putting out on the 17th, I considered just packing it up and sitting in the cart for the last hole, but I managed to play out the 18th hole.  Got to the clubhouse and drank a few cups of ice water and a Gatorade while trying to cool down.  

      I was out of it for 2-3 days before I started to feel normal again.  I learned my lesson that day and now I will fill up my water bottles even if I feel like I 'have plenty' for the rest of the round.  It was easily one of the scariest moments, health-wise, in my life.  I was extremely lucky to have been playing with others that day otherwise, things could have been real bad.

      Stay hydrated... stay in shade... and if you feel even a LITTLE off, make sure to get yourself somewhere safe and around people in a hurry.  As others have said... it will overtake you in a hurry.

      ETA - By the way... I'm not in 'good shape' by any means, but I'm only mid 30s and not easily 'gassed' or anything.  It just hit me quickly and I wasn't at all prepared for it.  Also, the course I played that day is now closed.  I suppose that's why they didn't have water in the coolers or anything that day.

    • I won't walk above 95 deg. and only 9 holes max if above 85 deg. (I carry). Don't get too hung up on being in shape.   Dehydration recovery is also a mini race that your replenishment effort could lose. The 'water-ade' you are drinking may not make it fast enough to all of your body to make up for the sweat loss. So you can actually drink more than you sweat and still dehydrate (and have a bloated belly). Happens to people all the time - "but, but, I drank so much water..!!"  If the de-hy % exceeds certain amount then you could be in trouble. Sometimes you don't feel/recognize till a few hours later. Also, core temps take longer to cool down once heated up.   +1 to the umbrella recommendation. Priceless. Scores? IDK, don't think much difference but haven't paid attention to heat vs. scores before.
    • Darn, 0-for-2! I'll be out of town for a work trip that weekend. But (subtle brag alert), it's the good kind of work trip where I get to play some golf. I'll be teeing it up at Erin Hills, WI that day.  Regardless, that date sounds like it will work for others, so run with that and I'll try to make the next one.
