Gloves, you wear one???

42 posts in this topic

Just curious if there are a lot of golfers out there that prefer to not wear a glove. I have always worn one but while at the range today there was a person getting a lesson next to me and I heard her say to her instructor that she got rid of her gloves. His reply was "that's good because they're worthless anyway" and it kind of took me by surprise. Just curious to hear some of your thoughts.

I use a glove on everything but my wedge shots and putter (obviously). I like the feel on shots around the green and about 120 yards and in.

I'd prefer not to, but I have to. I'll literally blister my left hand if I don't, especially at the range. I do just like rholt168, every shot except short pitches/chips and putts.

I do, it's more comfortable to me, and even with them I get raw spots/small calluses on the pads where my fingers join my hand. I pull it off only for putting.

I've tried throwing it away, but it doesn't feel right. Had I not used one from the start, I'm sure it would've been fine, but after golfing for many years, it has become a habit.

I use one for everything but putting - I typically find a closeout or last year's model on the internet and order a year's supply on the net.

No, I don't use one, I just can't get used to it. I probably should because when properly used, I may be able to lighten my grip. I'll go a couple of holes using one, take it off for putting, and then forget to put it back on.

I use one. I keep two in my bag. Well, I got caught in the rain one Saturday. Sunday, I went back and had forgotten about the gloves. They were soaked! I tried playing without a glove and it didn't go well. I put on a wet glove and that didn't go well either. After one dried enough to put on, I got back to normal. The way I wear through a leather glove, my hand would probably look like piece of shoe leather after a short while without one. To each his own.

I wear one for every shot except putting as well. I take it off between each shot. If I didn't, by the end of 18, I would have pretty much soaked it through. I keep a spare in the bag for really hot days.

i usually rotate between two on hot days. i soak them even if i take it off between shots.

I just started golfing and took lessons/went to the range without a glove. Bought one recently for my first 9-hole and it was pretty comfortable. Safe to say that I can use it or not, either way is fine really. On average, how many rounds (or how long) does a glove last before you need to get a new one? Just wondering.

Cheers,

I wear two from tee to cup. Funny I have white hands and tan forearms

So, does two really help you? How? I will wear to winter golf gloves if needed to keep the hands warm, but haven't thought about 2 during the summer. Surely not knocking it by any means. I'm really curious. Are your hands just tender or maybe very sweaty and it gives you a much better grip due to that? Again, not picking, just learning what works for others. I've just never seen anyone wear two during the summer.

The only time i wear a glove is when it rains, those Rain gloves are amazing, it can be a downpore and i can still hit the ball ;b

But i like no glove, which is srange because i use to play baseball when i was younger, little league, so i used two gloves when i first started golf. Then the golf pro got me to just wear one, to get more feeling, now i don't wear any gloves.

No. Haven't worn a glove for 15 years. My game didn't change when I dropped it. I regrip my clubs every year and that eliminates any real need for a glove. When I try to use a glove now (when my game is on the skids I'll try anything

), I don't feel like I'm connected to the club. Just one more thing that I DON'T have to buy for golf.

I have to wear a glove, just taking it off to putt.

    • If true, kind of a telling article about his prepping for a job he supposedly wants.
      What will this mean if he gets the job, does he read briefings or will he only pay attention if the briefings are told with shadow puppets? each candidate will get at least 1 softball question.
      DT will bring up Hillary's email and Benghazi issue.
      HRC will bring up DT's Trump U!

      DT will say "the best" & "great" many, many times.
      HRC will use very specific names and policies, DT will counter will ripping his shirt open and screaming "I am great and huuuuge"!!!!!!

      I think in reality DT setting his sights low will win him the night. even if he does poorly, which he would not admit to, he can indicate that he is not a "career politician". 
      I am wondering how long it will take DT until he takes a jab at Bill, seeing as DT is unaware of his own moral and fidelity issues. I anticipate the debate turning into a POOP show, by the 3rd question!
    • I didn't vote. Not enough of an issue as explained. I have shared my views on slower than faster play on this site many times before. No need to get into that it again. 
    • Possibly your preferred shot shape is the draw? Just guessing from your last post. What you might do is get some face impact decals for irons and go to the range. After a brief warm-up, hit 10 shots each with 5i, 7i, and 9i. If the impact points are all over the face (which I doubt given your handicap), you might have a swing wobble. If the points cluster in one area, and its away from center face, you might need a tweak to your irons, such as shaft length or lie angle. Also, launch monitor session could give you specific data to combine with impact decal patterns.  If you have clean hit problems mainly with the 4i and 5i, you might consider softstepping these shafts. This would bring the FCM down to 4.9 for the two clubs (just a touch under 5.0 which is theoretically "average" R-flex), and would help with launch. Any other ideas from low-HDCPers? @Club Rat?
    • And this, boys and girls, is a good example of why we continue to have pace of play issues....
    • Safe to say firing his putting coach was the right thing to do, probably should of done it 6 months earlier.   1 2 May 2010 Quail Hollow Championship 72-73-66-62=273 −15 4 strokes  Phil Mickelson 2 19 Jun 2011 U.S. Open 65-66-68-69=268 −16 8 strokes  Jason Day 3 4 Mar 2012 The Honda Classic 66-67-66-69=268 −12 2 strokes  Tom Gillis,  Tiger Woods 4 12 Aug 2012 PGA Championship 67-75-67-66=275 −13 8 strokes  David Lynn 5 3 Sep 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship 65-65-67-67=264 −20 1 stroke  Louis Oosthuizen 6 9 Sep 2012 BMW Championship 64-68-69-67=268 −20 2 strokes  Phil Mickelson,  Lee Westwood 7 20 Jul 2014 The Open Championship 66-66-68-71=271 −17 2 strokes  Rickie Fowler,  Sergio García 8 3 Aug 2014 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational 69-64-66-66=265 −15 2 strokes  Sergio García 9 10 Aug 2014 PGA Championship (2) 66-67-67-68=268 −16 1 stroke  Phil Mickelson 10 3 May 2015 WGC-Cadillac Match Play 4 & 2  Gary Woodland 11 17 May 2015 Wells Fargo Championship (2) 70-67-61-69=267 −21 7 strokes  Patrick Rodgers,  Webb Simpson 12 5 Sep 2016 Deutsche Bank Championship (2) 71-67-66-65=269 −15 2 strokes  Paul Casey 13 25 Sep 2016 Tour Championship 68-70-66-64=268 −12 Playoff  Kevin Chappell,  Ryan Moore Look at the dates on his wins.  It looks like when he goes on to win a tourney he usually follows it up with one or two more shortly after.  Interesting....
