Sweaty hands, soggy glove


Recommended Posts

I'm the same way so what I started doing was at the water stations every 3 holes I run water over my hands to cool them down. Works wonders for me. I also have a 64 oz hydoflask that I have contemplated bringing on the course with me as it keeps water cold to do every hole. However, since water is generally every 3 holes this has allowed me to go 1 glove a round for now but the glove is still a little damp at end. Saved me from blowing through 3 gloves a month though!

 

On the range though I'm lucky as they keep water there and I just wet and air dry or wipe down my hands every so often.

 

Has to be cold water though! Warm at all does nothing for me.

Running a little cool water over the hands is a brilliant idea. Filing this one for future use!

In this end of the south it gets as humid as in Florida. I sweat a lot anyhow. In the humid weather I take my glove off between shots and do not wear one on short wedge,bunker and chip shots. I do not

Rain glove.   It is designed to be wet when used.    

Mine get this way when I'm out sometimes, I don't really have any solutions unfortunately. Just know you're not alone.   I actually play with a guy who has about five or six gloves he carries with

I don't wear a golf glove and I do just find.  They're too much of a hassle for me and it's one less thing I have to spend money on.  I play way too often to be digging in my pocket for golf gloves. 

 

What's the purpose of a glove if your hand get's sweaty anyway? My hands don't sweat so I'm fortunate with that.   I will say I wear winter gloves when the fingers get cold but only if the temp warrants it.

So it's been awfully humid here the last week or so.  I've been to the range a couple of times and it seems that after about 20-25 balls my hands get sweaty and my glove is saturated - especially in the heel pad.

 

Am I unique?  Does anyone else sweat like that and if so what do you do?

 

I've brought 2 gloves to the range but they both just end up getting wet.

I used to have powder in my bag but I think the last bottle burst open and it went everywhere. 

 

Has anyone tried powder on their hands?

 

The problem I get is my grips get slick and slip a bit in my hands...

If I go out there and have a long range session, mine will do that.  I used to buy the cheap gloves, but the higher quality gloves don't seem to do that anywhere near as bad.  Also, when I'm playing, I'll take my glove off after every shot so I'm not consistently sweating in it.  Also, put it in a ziploc bag when you finish playing so it will stay a little soft instead of getting hard and stiff. 

 

If I'm doing a long range session in the summer, though, I'll hit about 40-50 balls, then go chip or putt for a few minutes and I don't use my glove for either of those.  Then I'll go back and hit some more.

Good call on the ziplock!  I used to do that but stopped.. not sure why.  It helps.

I tried the no glove thing and it does not work for me. For me for some reason it affects my grip pressure on long shots. On short wedge shots I manulipate the club so much I have to have absolute feel. But do not pay any attention to me because I am quirky any how

I also get the slime in my gloves too when it's hot out. I usually switch between 2 or more gloves in a round to let them dry out. I also take it off after every shot. Also hot in Massachusetts

What's funny for me is that I live in Florida. I played yesterday at 3 in the afternoon. It was 98 and 87 percent humidity when I tee'd off. I've lived in CT and MA. Even the worst days there only come close to touching our normal.

 

Here's the answer...

I use that before every shot. It's imperative to change grips often and keep them dry when it's hot and humid. I have the rain gloves which work great in the rain but I'm not crazy about them at other times. The good news for you is that your hot and humid weather has already passed. Mine will too, in late October or early November. :)

Trust me I also have plenty of those and nothing fancy either. I buy all of my 'golf towels" at Dollar General for around $1.50 each for bath size. I wash them and rotate them out when they get too bad then they get used for shop towels. I did hit a deal a couple of years ago at the Salvation Army they had a whole shopping cart full of motel grade towels 5 for $1. I bought what was left which was about 50 towels. Some of them went to shop and house cleaning rags. Yep no fancy golf course or product logo towels for me

When I first moved to Missouri from the northwest, I thought I was going to drown in the humidity and holding a golf club was nearly impossible for me. A local golf store had what was essentially a pine tar rag that was a towel on the opposite side. Changing gloves frequently and using that rag worked great.

So we are entering another season, and there were many responses in this string about gloves, when to wear, what to wear and how often to wear, when to change, tacky stuff, and powder stuff.  In the end, is there a grip that can create a positive hold without requiring gloves at all?   My son has never worn gloves, and except for an occasional blister has never had an issue with clubs slipping. Just curious if anyone or any company has ever deeply looked into this?

I was expecting some other poster when opening this

I know @chisag doesn't use a glove and he has a very low handicap... not sure what grips he's using.

 

I suppose you do need to choose with care as I can imagine some of them would chew your hands up.

When I lived in Michigan I never wore a glove, and never had a problem. I used GP players softie cord. Since moving to SC it's almost mandatory to wear a glove, I cannot find a grip I like that works without a glove. If you are looking for something that won't slip, I would look into corded grips, or check out Zach at best grips for some leather grips that are pretty tacky and won't slip even in the rain.

I never wore a glove until my senior year in HS, and I used GP Victory Cords. You get used to it.

 

Here in humid VA, I alternate three gloves when I play, changing after every shot. I hang on to old, nasty gloves with holes in them for the range. I'll use gloves on the range until they disintegrate.

 

I've tried going gloveless, but it's a mental thing with me now. Wish I'd never started...

I have always worn a glove and back in the day I played cord grips too. Now a friend of mine tried to talk me into the gloveless thing when they came out with the GP Tour Wraps. Found that I grip the club too hard on full shots--- I guess with me it is like you a mental thing

This is exactly what happened to me. And it's pretty much what i do. I will on occasion take the glove off for short shots to have better feel around the greens.

 

Also to help get the glove dry in order to swap back and forth I bought some long Velcro pieces that are used for containing electrical cords and attach them to the cart then just let it hang and flop around on the wind, after a few holes it's dry and then I swap out, then keep doing that until I'm done with the round.
