The gloves that is.

Found myself able to 'feel' better. And it was GOODDDDDD ... Laughing

Not sure why?

But I'm worried that my silky smooth hands will turn rough so ... I'm wearing gloves (both hands) STILL!
Hmmm ... should I go without?




Oh, I was kidding about the silky smooth hands! rendeer

if you dont have sweaty palms and you like it, why not? Go commando like boom boom couples. He does have callouses on his thumb though, so he puts super glue on it for protection.

freddy couples, one of the nicest swinger of the ball ever...No kidding, check out the PGAtour channel on youtube. There is a WITB video on him, where he mentioned putting super glue to his thumb to keep the tackiness.

Try hitting 200 balls at the range without gloves and you should have your answer?
Smile


Personally I can't do without my gloves (I only use for left hand). Even with the glove on I still do get calluses on my fingers. Perhaps grip too tight ? So I can't imagine if I go without them.

Then again, it's individual preference. There's this Australian LPGA pro (cant rem her name) who also goes without.

Exfoliate, scrub, moisturise?
Sometimes I put plaster round the finger.

I tried without a couple of times.

Liked the feel but after a couple of strokes with the club have to put back the glove. Fingernail on my right-hand pinky (I use the interlock grip) tends to cut into the left index finger and it's quite painful to open a fresh wound at the same spot repeatedly. Happens even after I've trimmed the nails.

So my hand goes protected.

I think very few players play without gloves. I have a couple of friends that play without them, they say they have better feel.....

I just like it raw and hate to wear protection. However, the constant rubbing of skins after banging 200 over times is simply too painful for my liking. Also to play safe, no choice but force myself to wear one.

Glove is a must for me except for chipping and putting. Hooray

depends on what grip....GP tour wrap 2G feels good without glove (except if u sweat a lot and dont wipe, u may see a flying club).....the GP MC not so much. The GP tour velvet cord is the worst, just the driver gave me blisters.

although i only have it for my putter, the grip master feels terrific against the naked skin.
