I normally take it off to putt. Yesterday at the practice chipping area though I didn't wear it. I still managed to chip in about three balls from 40 years out, so it was a win kinda day without it haha.

I take my glove off after every shot (to try to avoid the one glove tan line), but use it on every shot except putting. It just doesn't feel right with the glove on when putting.

I never wear a glove, I quit wearing one in the mid 90's, I was a Freddie Couples fan.  I was happy to do away with the expense of a glove and never knowing if I had one in the bag, if it was usable and so on.  Plus, today's grips are so much better than in years past, I found I really didn't need one.

Don't wear one anymore, but I always took it off after every shot and never wore it when chipping/pitching and putting. They say people use a glove to get a better grip, but I don't see why one would need it when putting.

I take it off after every shot.  I find that in hot weather down here in FL it helps me keep the glove dry which helps my game and extends the life of the glove too.

I don't wear the glove at all chipping or putting.  Don't know that I have any better "feel" as a result.....it's just what I've always done/

seems like too much effort to me to take it off to putt, put it in my back pocket, remember to put it back on.   I just leave it on ...

I take it off after every shot then put it back on before taking my next one. Only time i dont wear a glove when making a stroke is putting.

When I used to wear a glove, I'd put it on for my tee shot, then immediately remove it. I wear it for chipping /putting, but I didn't really take it off either. Weaned myself off gloves years ago, and if I needed to don one again, I might go with two for the consistency.

I only wear one when using the driver, and remove it immediately.  When I did wear one for everything, a few years ago, I always left it on.  After a few rounds the glove was no longer wearable from sweating in it and I would go through several over the course of one season.  Now my "driving" glove lasts a couple of seasons.

I didn't vote, because there is no category which applies.

Funny - I did vote because even though I don't wear a glove there was an option aimed at me!

I am the 1%.

Sorry, couldn't resist....

I guess I can vote as never wear one, if it only pertains to chipping/putting, so long as it's not implying that had one on for a previous shot (unless it was a driver, then yes, imply away....wait....huh?).

I voted every shot inside 80 yards, but it's more like every shot inside 40-50 yards.  80 yards is a near full 60˚ (or near as full as I ever swing it at least), and I like my glove for full or near full shots.  Down in the 50 yard range and can take an easy 1/2 or 1/4 swing with the 60˚ or 54˚, and for that size swing or less I like no glove.

Me too, carry extras in hot or inclement weather and change them when needed.
