  • Baseball Glove for Golf ???

    Probably the most stupid question ever asked on this forum, but anyone tried to use a Baseball Glove for golf ? The batter not the catcher, of course
    I figure they maybe more durable and maybe more protective for us Old Fossils with fragile hands and skin, LOL
    Stay safe and cheers

        I have always held the golf club at the very end of the grip as I was used to this from playing so much hockey from a very young age - because of this I would go thru at least 15 gloves per year until I found the kangaroo leather gloves at GT about 7 years ago (3 per season would last me) but they no longer sell them so I switched to baseball batting gloves 2 years ago and they last even better - only problem is you have to buy 2 - so one is wasted unless you might use it on the other hand in the colder months - National Sports has a variety of batting gloves starting at 25 up to over 70 -- they do have good sales at times as I bought my stock for this year back in early Nov. -bought 3 pair regular 45 a pair for 20 bucks a pair
        Driver - Cleveland Classic 290 - 10.5- Miyazaki Stiff -- Taylor Made Burner 3 and 5 wood
        23* and 26* Adams Idea Tech hybrids both with Fubuki 65HY S
        6 - W - Srixon Z 745 - Dynamic Gold S300
        52* - 56* Cobra Tour Trusty

              Missing the real question:
              "would a professional ball player increase his batting and slugging average
              if he wore a pair of golf gloves, due to more feel for the bat?"

                In addition, if you try one of the cheaper synthetic leather gloves they typically wear much better. The high end, super supple cabretta leather gloves are very thin to enhance feel, but sacrifice durability in the process.

                This would be a good example of a more durable glove: https://www.footjoy.com/golf-gloves/...6146E#start=12

                20 degree Ping Rapture V2 Hybrid / MR JavlinFX

                  Those are the ones I wear.

                  I find them to be much more durable than the "good" gloves and they are half the price.

                  They have plenty enough "feel" for my game - I'm losing strokes to lost balls, bad putts, mishits from everywhere. Feel is a non-issue.

                    I wear these and stand up very well. Pretty inexpensive as well - usually a 2pk for $25 or so.

                      @VO, with you swinging through impact with your left arm/hand only, i'd be more concerned with your lead wrist taking all the stress of impact.

                      Rather than worry about a finger protecting glove I'd look into a wrist protecting device such as this.

                        Hey, THANKS FOR THIS, so much appreciated

                        And ALSO THANKS TO ALL OTHERS WHO HELPED ME here, and Everywhere elase

                        And yes I have one of those, but MIRACULOUSLY my left wrist is "still" in decent shape, go figure - everything else on my body is "falling apart" but my leading wrist is 'hanging in there" LOL.

                        You should see me in my "full protective gear" roaming the "HILLS OF BRAEBEN" - KNEE BRACES, ELBOW BRACES, I look like the Terminator of some kind and my friend, the Red Tail Hawk doing "fly buys" and keeping me company. Well come to think of it, if Braeben ever opens, maybe it'll be the Hawk and me alone, on the TRASH MOUNTAIN for the time being, ha ha.

                          Maybe even a tennis elbow brace might help with vibrations up through the elbow.

                          Being a lefty I always found when I jammed a club on a buried route or repetitions off mats it was my left or trailing arm that hurt.

                          I think that's because when your club head is stopped suddenly the trailing arm and hand has no where to go and kind of get trapped against the shaft, if that makes any sense.

                            I think that you make total sense. IOW, i remember seeing PGA tour event broadcasts, where a player has a bad lie, like against a hidden tree roots and such, hits a hard shot, hits the root, hurts herself, and then "shakes off" in pain, NOT THE LEADING ARM ***BUT*** THE TRAILING ARM, well TRAILING WRIST to be more precise.
