Do you putt with your golf glove on?

17 posts in this topic

Just wondering how many people take theirs off when they go to putt. If you do, why and do you think it makes a significant difference?

I take it off. Better feel. Plus it gives my hand time to dry out so I am not sweating into my glove for 4+ hours straight.

Glove comes off immediately after every shot and stays off from 100 yards in.

It is hot here year round and the glove would be soaked if left on, putting with it is just a waste.

I wear a glove to improve my grip on full swing shots. For that reason, i only wear it for full shots. I don't wear my glove on putts or chips, because it's not necessary. Removing the glove also tends to keep it dry in the summer heat and helps extend it's lifespan, so I remove it after every shot too.

Ya, I take mine off for better feel of the putter and feedback on my putts. i guess preference but putting is more feel for me.

I keep it on all the time. Maybe I should take it off for putting. I just don't feel it affects me. My putting is not great but it's not bad either.

Iomic Sticky 2.3 grips. Grips may cost more than others but no glove saves money. I like no glove more than glove -- not a compromise but rather an improvement. And grips are like new after 80 rounds.

I used to take it off between shots like listed here. Partly due to the feel thing, but mostly from Georgia heat causing sweat-drenched gloves.  But then over this last winter I just sort of stopped taking it off - quite by accident.  I found I like not having the task of on / off / and keeping track of the glove all the time.

Also found that instead of losing feel on and around the greens, I actually felt better with it on.  Maybe because I hit so many shots with it on?  Including the range and such.  So now I mostly put it on and leave it on.  Slightly better tan on the right hand.  And the Georgia heat is still a problem.  So I keep an extra or two hanging on the strap of my bag and just swap for a new one about half way through.

I do pretty much the same.  Definitely do not wear it putting or with simple short pitches/chips, and I take it off** between all other shots.

**OK, not exactly ... I usually don't take it all the way off, just un-velcro it and peel it back off my palm.  It's not so much for the life span of the glove (they die of holes in the thumb before anything else anyway) but rather to avoid a one handed farmer tan. :)

No I don't putt with my glove on. I'm not sure how much difference it makes in feel, except it doesn't make me feel like a dork.

I don't putt with the glove on for many of same reasons already listed.  Gives glove some time to dry out, airs out my hand and I prefer the feel of ungloved hand on the putter grip.

I leave it on, partly due to the reason I have a touch of dermatitis on my hands, and when I play golf, the grips on my clubs rubs my right index finger and causes it to split, then occasionally bleed, if its very warm, I may take it off between shots when playing with 2 or more people, but usually, it stays on... And my putting is okay really and no where near the biggest problem of my game! :)

I currently never wear a glove for any shots but when I first started I wore one all the time (putting included).  Truthfully, I can't tell a difference in "feel" or my performance.  I stopped wearing one because of the amount of sweat trapped inside the glove and the seams on the fingers of the glove became irritating.

I take my glove off in between each shot for the same reasons listed above. Also, I never putt with my glove on... it feels much better without.

    • I am with @DaveP043  Just buy the damned tees. or as  Bernie says.."enough of the damned emails".  OTOH, nothing wrong with a bit of lively discussion supported by factual information.
    • I usually like to tee my ball 2" below waist high.
    • Nadir is technically correct but fairly arcane; I've never heard anyone refer to the lowest point of the golf swing as the nadir. I used the term "apex' because in racing it refers to the inside point of the racing line in a turn at which you're closest to the curb. The orientation of hands to clubhead at impact does make a difference. However, the naive solution to being told you're leading the club with the hands is to release your wrists earlier, and done even a little too early this results in "casting" the club which wastes most of the power of the downswing. So, you have to be real careful telling someone who's keeping his wrists too stiff to "release more".
    • Actually, I was just looking back through the old Bulls goalies and there are a bunch of familiar names. Early on you had Doug Dadswell and Sandy Galluppo. Both those guys played for the Cyclones and Sandy had a stint with Dayton before Birmingham. You were one of the many, many stops for old Kalamazoo goalie Mike Torchia, a Michelin man-looking guy that I saw play the Cyclones many times. Last but certainly not least was my old BG buddy Shawn Timm. He played a miserable 15 minutes in goal for the Bulls after his senior season with the Falcons. Gave up three goals and became an investment banker. Great memories.
    • It might not have been the security guards who suggested paying for the damages. He gave them ~ $50 cash. He wasn't 'shaken down', taken to an ATM, relieved of watch, electronics, etc. In the U.S. there is such a thing as a citizen's arrest. It's possible that in Rio some licensed private security guards may be deputized in some way with partial powers to detain for arrest. Every time Lochte's lawyer responds to a media inquiry with 'no comment' it's billable time. If they decide to answer the charges with local representation the money bleed will accelerate. I'm positive paying the donation in lieu of fine in the short term like his teammate did would have been less costly. It would have been even less costly ~ $50 if he had kept his trap shut in the media having already narrowly avoided an official 'on the books' detention / arrest / fine. http://www.people.com/article/ryan-locht-summoned-brazil
