Does anybody here play without a glove? I played on tuesday without a glove and found that I actually preferred playing gloveless. Granted it wasn't hot, so I wasn't sweating, and I could see in the summer that being a problem.

The grips that I play with are Karma black velvet (very similar to GP's Tour velvet) I plan to switch to a Dual compound grip next week, so I iwll try that glove less as well.

Thoughts?

I play with a few people that go without gloves, its not really an option for me because my hands sweat more then any person i know so i need the extra grip. In fact in the summer when its really really hot i may break out the rain gloves they sweat so badly.

it can be getting that hot in conneticut?? Come to texas and feel the REAL summer heat. You start to sweat from just walking out the door to go out side.

I would like to get out of New England and play some courses. Its not 100% the heat thats responsible I'm just one sweaty son of a gun. Also, probobly doesn't help that all of my clubs need to be regripped.

Well, I like the glove for that extra bit of tack but I just started playing all my shots 100 yards and in without a glove and I've gotten some better results. I play Lamnkin crossline cords. I don't have sweaty hands either. I just like how the glove takes my attention away from my left hand.

When I'm out of town, my wife makes me wear cabretta underwear.

Kidding - unless it's winter or I'm digging a hole - gloveless.

WWFCD?

Gloveless here. I just don't need a glove to grip the club, not even when it's 95-100 degrees and 95% humidity here in SE IndY!

I don't usually practice with a glove, and on the course I usually only use one for the long game... pretty much anything 6 iron or shorter and I'll take it off.

Around the greens I don't like to wear one for sure becuase I get a better feel.

My Dad of course, even wears one when he's putting

The last time I played I forgot my glove at home and didn't feel like going back to the club house to buy one, I figured if I played bad on the front I would get on at the turn. I was -1 after nine and ended up shooting +2 overall, my best round ever and it was without a glove... I always thought I need a glove but I guess not!!

I've found I play better without a glove. Never have had a problem not using one. Same with golf shoes......I think folks think they have to have these things and thats not true for everyone. Look how Freddy has played without golf shoes.....his best golf in years.

That's why I don't play wilth a glove! Big fan of Freddy, don't know when he quite wearing a glove but I haven't worn one in more than 10 years. Expecially with today's grips, I feel a glove is even less important, plus it's just one more thing I don't have to buy and try and keep track of....

    • Replace the grip if you want, but a new putter won't matter (unless it makes you practice more).  There's some great putting and short game drills in chapter 9 of Every Shot Counts by Mark Broadie. His drills are also games, with scoring that measures objective skill level.   Also recommend The Putting Bible by Dave Pelz. 
    • A strange round of golf yesterday. I played from the red tees (plays just 5350 yards).  My ballstriking is not very crisp these days, but hopefully I can sort that out soon. It was a round of two halves, as usual. Front 9:  Could not hit fairways or greens at all on the front, 2/9 greens and 2/6 fairways, but still shot +2 on the front. That includes 2 shots in the bunker on hole 4, a horrible misshit that lead to a double on hole 7, topped my driver 80 yards twice and the only 2 fairways I hit were with short irons in hand. 11 putts on the front 9 says a lot about that tretch of holes.  Birdie on both par 5s on the front is allways nice.  37 shots, par 35 Back 9:  A little better ballstriking even though I hit 2 shots OB, leading to a tripple and a double, 4/7 fairway and 4/9 greens. The short game was more off here and I left a couple of chips a bit short. 17 putts is not as good as I'd like it to be. 1 threeputt, but I think I would threeputt from there more often than not, as it was a 60 foot downhill putt with a lot of break where I gave it a little to much speed. Birdie on hole 15 (short par 3) and on hole 17 was nice, and I missed a short birdieputt on, the tough par 3, 11. Had 165 yards in after a decent drive on the par 5 18, but managed the top the approach and miss the green from 90 yards after that and walk off with a bogey after also missing the 5 foot par save. 44 shots, par 37.  81 shots is not bad, but I make to many misstakes from tee, making golf a lot harder than it needs to be. I hit driver on 8 holes: 1 fairway hit (265 yards), 1 OB, hit short and low slices mostly except from the two topped 80 yard ones, avg. 240 yards today. My drives are usually 270-320 yards depending on wind and course, so my driving is not where it should be. My short game is not perfect, but it's certainly better than my hcp right now.  Playing a round at an away course today. There is a curse hanging over that course that needs to be lifted. Good luck me 😉  
    • Our range closes early on Sunday to do a “clean pick”, and reopens at 11:30 on Monday. It is mowed early Monday. The course is closed until noon on Monday’s.
    • If you do get a new putter, get fit first. Try a bunch out at a golf store and see what kinds you like first. Then find a good fitter to get your numbers down, length, lie, loft and overall weight. Heavier putters can help with distance control for some folks. Also, a different grip size may help even if n your current putter. For distance control, having a consistent rhythm helps. In my visit to Erie, Erik had me work on increasing my rhythm a bit because I was a bit too slow and it varied. I have a tempo app on my phone and set my rhythm to 2/4 time at 72 bpm. When I practice putting, I first work on my rhythm for short, medium and long putts. Then I work on read and start line. This drill can help too.  
    • Day 68, August 1, 2021:  My backswing is still too long. I’m trying to get it shorter I look at it on film and it’s way too long, did some pitching length swing length feeling swings, so it’s probably half to three quarter length backswing.
