Wear a Glove When Putting?
By Katherine Marren

My students ask me a lot of great questions when we are out on the golf course. One that I get a lot from my women players is should I take my glove off to putt or should I keep it on. We tend to like to emulate the best players in the world, the Tour players, and they take their glove off because they feel it increases their feel when they are putting. But another reason they take their glove off is to actually use up time. It is a relaxation method. As they take their glove off they are not over reading their putt, they are not over analyzing it, they are not over thinking it. So they are actually using it to eat up time while they wait for their turn. I like to ask my students to think about it from those two points. One for feel, and I have hit a lot of putts with my glove on and I still have great feel, and number two is whether it is going to help you relax, get to the ball on time and have time to read your putt, be focused, be ready and hit your shot. I think you can go either way. When you are in rush keep your glove on, get focused on your putt and your distance. When you are waiting take your glove off so that you have time to relax.
