im 14 and do not have a lot of income so no glove. My mom says she will let me find a summer job though so saving up for green fees, range balls, or something else.My mom already pays for lessons.:)

I don't wear a glove either. I think that it takes away from my feel and I have yet to experience an advantage from wearing one. I play GP Tour Velvet Cords and have no problems with then eating up my hands either. My only exception to this is in the rain. If it's raining really hard and I can't keep my grips dry, I will wear glove outside of 100 yards. I find that a good glove and corded grips work together pretty well in heavy rain.

No glove.... except for my FJ winter gloves, and then only when the temp is below about 45°.

Dude thats nearly 7°C,Thats a heatwave in Ireland I went to work this morning in a T-Shirt and it was 6°C! As I have a manual job(Electrician) I have fairly tough hands so I don't get blisters at all,though I can now see some benefits for some people to wear gloves if they get blisters

I use to not play with one, but ever since I moved down to Florida I really need one. My hand got really sweaty once when I was at the driving range and my club slipped out of my hand and went about 50 yards.....Ever since then I have worn a glove.

I'm also glove-free. I started playing golf as a starving grad student, so I learned to save a bit of money by playing without a glove. If I played a lot, like several rounds in a day or multiple days in a row, I'd wear one. Otherwise my hands would get chewed up. But most of the time I only play a half round, so I don't need a glove.

Don't see the point of them myself to be honest.

Just got home from the course an hour ago.

It was well over 90 degrees and the humidity could be sliced with a knife. All in my threesome rotated out gloves all round long. Glad I took four bottles of water with me...the course has none available on the course.....it was thirsty work playing today. I simply don't see how someone could play in this area and not wear a glove (and not game corded grips, for that matter). I do know guys who go sans glove.....I can't understand how. I need the crutch.

No glove here. And no blisters either after I lightened my grip pressure. Slamin' Sammy used to say "hold the club like you would a bird". He said if you get blisters, you're squeezin' too hard.

I sufffer from having the sweatiest hands of anyone i know so a glove is a must for me, on the really hot humid days sometimes i break out my rain gloves

Once leather gloves lose their water/sweat resistance I find them useless. So I started playing rain gloves exclusively for quite some time. They are the greatest thing if you sweat tons and want to play with gloves, no need to rotate and they last significantly longer (do need to wash them regularly otherwise they smell like

) Anyways wanted to play without a glove to work on grip pressure and got hooked on this hand sanitizer looking product that is called dry hands, keeps them 100000% dry.

I've got a couple of pairs of rain gloves....those things really only work when they are fully saturated...at least the type I have. I don't think I'd get decent results with them under normal weather conditions.

The dry hands stuff sounds interesting, though.

I use the fj rain glove and even dry it works well with the GP multi comps. Here is a link to the dry hands product I was talking about,

I used to never wear one but now i do because of blister problems. I do like the feel of having all my fingers on the grip but the glove gives me stability because i swing very hard at the ball and sometimes the grip slips. Now i also keep the glove on when i putt. I guess its a preference and everyone is different. I find that i get blisters all over my left hand when not wearing a glove when i practice.
