i'd really like to find a glove that fits like the bionic but i can't! For some reason the Bionic glove in a L size fits my hand better than any other glove but, i can't wear them legally in match play! grrr

I accidently threw my club once during a swing because of not wearing a glove, so I wear one all the time. I also wear sweat bands on both arms to keep as much sweat off my hands as possible. I am a very sweaty individual and I need all the help I can get for my wet, slick hands to stay on the grips. I plan on getting chord grips for my clubs in the near future.

I replace 2 months ago the grips with Golfpride Multicompound grips and I´m enjoying not wearing gloves
But if there is a risky shot (like a long 3 iron over water) I put on the glove to be sure the club doesn´t flip...

You could just say you have arthritis of the hands and you'd be set.

Left hand, yes. My hands tend to shred. Always have, probably always will. I also tape heavily on my right hand and sometimes under the glove, especially if I'm planning on hitting 200-ish balls at the driving range or if it's just generally humid at balls out. 1/2 inch athletic tape is a wonderful thing. I'd rather wear all of that than give up corded or even hybrid grips.

I use two (one on each hand). I leave them on for putting too, so they're all the whole round, except when I am going to the bathroom or eating.

Seems to me you oughta leave 'em on when going to the John and at least take one off when you play.

I wear one on my left hand and when I'm in "the zone" I often forget to take it off while putting. Over the summer I switched from the left hand tot he right hand because I suffered a 3rd degree burn on the right hand and wanted some protection. It's all healed up now though.

The point is so it doesnt shred your hands. I always use one on my left hand. Occasionally when Im playing horrendous Ill take it off and play without it just to switch something up. But I think thats more of a mental thing just because I feel i need something to change. But I also think it serves a small purpose because I cant swing quite as hard without it, so I slow down a little and that may help. Ill also occasionally play a round without spikes on for the same reason if I have been struggling.

To the point of the glove protecting against blisters and whatnot, I dont have that much of a problem with it in a round. But when I practice and Im just pounding balls for an extended period of time I definetely have issues with blisters. And If I have to practice with it Im going to use it in the round too just because it would feel wrong otherwise

That is incorrect. Gloves, while they do add comfort for cord grip users, are definetly for the control aspect. Like on a hot sweaty day, they really come in handy. Pun intended.

My hands get destroyed if I play without gloves. As for going to the bathroom, there are a lot of pesticides and fertilizers and goose poop remains, etc., on the golf course...I'd just rather take my gloves off. Anyway, it's my system and it works for me - I don't expect it'll be right or even sensible for others.

i never use a glove. i find i get much better feel for the shots. i will use a glove if im doing a heavy range session for a bit so i don't get blisters. but i never use a glove on the course.

I wear one on my left hand only, mostly because I used to get blisters on the side of my index finger without one. I generally try to remember to take it off for putts, but I can't say I actually notice an effect on my putts. It's just about the feel...

Its definetely not incorrect, Im not saying they gloves arent intended to help with control from sweaty palms. But you cant tell me that having leather wrapped around your hand isnt going to protect it from blisters. Especially to new players. While I have callas' (sp?) built up on my hands now because Ive played 200 rounds in the last year and a half when I first started playing I struggled with blisters often when I tried to play without a glove. This is compounded by the fact that alot of beginner players grip too hard.

A single piece of equipment can be used as a means to more than one end. I hit 160 yard shots, and 12 yard shots with my 8 iron.

    • Day 356 The holes in my net have become unmanageable, and I've ripped holes in the target cloth blocking the holes in the net now too. While I wait for my warranty replacement (not sure how Rukket earns money considering all the nets I've been through), I just hit some 50% speed 5-irons with the feeling of the club head moving before the handle to start transition, and tried to keep the trajectory low to hit an integral part of the net.
    • When you missed that one foot putt did you tell him your name was Bill Buckner?  😁
    • That's a great hat! I have one just like it, plus various other Red Sox, Patriots, and Bruins hats. I played with a Yankees fan one day while wearing a Red Sox hat,and I told him that he was a very lucky man because he could look at my hat for four hours.
    • View this round on GAME GOLF Very wet, cartpaths only. Plugged drives all day. Played something that kind of resembled golf. Not going to bother analyzing anything since it's December 3rd. Was just happy to get out on a nice course. Highlights of the day were making birdie from a penalty area on #9 and the twisting sand cart paths I drove golf cart rally on.
    • I doubt you were actually swinging slower. Did you have any clubhead data?
