Wearing a Wedding Ring while Playing

Congrats on the wedding @Jeremie Boop.  I wish you many years of happiness together.

I do not wear a ring, and never have, so I can't help you with that.

I never wear my ring golfing, or playing other sports, or around the house.  I wear my ring when I go to work, or when I go out, but that's about it.

I didn't read every post in here, so someone may have mentioned these, but a couple guys I know have them and LOVE them:

I’ve been looking at those and similar rings. I don’t know why though. My ring is fine.

As some of you may know, I recently got married. I had not had the opportunity to golf or go to the range since that day until yesterday after work. There was some annoyance/discomfort while golfing with my ring on and that made me wonder if this is a common issue that other people go through. If you have had a similar issue, what did you do to resolve it? Hopefully the answer isn't remove the ring, because I had already lost the first ring while we were in Puerto Rico on the beach and the possibility of losing it again.... Well, let's just say the consequences aren't exactly good.

I don't wear it when I play because my knuckle is a little bit big, so the ring is loose. A few years ago, I noticed the ring was out of round due to this. It was jamming and twisting. I put the ring in my wallet now when I play so I don't lose it or leave it at home.

I think the last time I had my wedding ring off was over 20 years ago.  I wear it playing golf, and I've apparently adjusted to it.  It IS kind of oval shaped now, not sure when or how that happened, but it doesn't bother me at all.

My wife bought one when her hands swelled up during pregnancy (she's still pregnant). 

She asked me if I wanted to get one and my answer was "why...?" That usually ends the conversation pretty quickly lol.

I have a similar issue with my ring, in that it's a bit big in order to fit over my knuckle, which may be part of the issue.

We went with non-traditional rings made of titanium with a black ion plating. I don't think they will be going out of round, which may be another issue. So it seems I'll probably have to go with the carabiner or other similar option to put it while golfing.

I think I pointed those rings out sometime before we were married and mentioned something about getting them. I got a look that from her that similarly ended the conversation quickly.

I had an issue with my ring - blister after wearing for a round. Never again. Buy a valuables bag and keep your wallet, keys, ring and phone in it. 

 

Pro tip - don’t then toss the valuables bag in the trunk of your car... I may have done that a couple years back!

I got married about a year ago, and first my ring felt weird so I took it off in the car before playing.  But I like it, and like to wear it, so after a month maybe I started wearing it again.  It didn't take long to get used to it, may be slightly out-of-round, and the glove keeps the diamonds shiny!

If you leave it on you'll eventually get used to it. If I were to take it off now it would feel weird to play without it.

 

This was my experience as well.

Yup - always the option to take it off (in advance) for important games and leave it on at other times including practice as a halfway house

Cant wear mine at the moment as i get eczma between my little and ring finger (both hands) so it irritates mr to wear it. Also cant wear a glove while playing as i end up bleeding after 6 or so holes and it was getting pricey buying new gloves.

I was lucky enough to get one of those rings 47 years ago. Wore it 40+ years before taking it off. Never remember it bothering me playing golf, though I did notice it while gripping a baseball bat. 

Had to remove it some years back due to excessive swelling. These days, I wear it on a chain around my neck.

I can play with mine on, but on hot days I will take it off.
When I take it off I will it around the band of my watch and the watch goes into the inside pocket of my accessory bag. That bag is clipped onto my bag but it is zipped into the top zipper pocket.
