Glove: Tight fit or Loose fit ?, How do you prefer your glove ?

I don't wear them so I don't really know, but i have always been curious. I played baseball in college and batting gloves are tight, but nowhere near as tight as golf gloves are.
Golf gloves are designed to provide grip and prevent slippage from perspiration during the swing.
In order for them to do their job properly, they should be worn tight, like a second skin. This in turn provides feel. And feel alllows the golfer to adjust tension in gripping the club to his or her own comfort level.
A sloppy fitting glove ( any glove which is not at least snug fitting) inhibits feel and can promote gripping the club too tightly, which leads to tension in the forearms, which leads to any number of swing problems.

Tight fit all the way. The worst feeling is when the glove wrinkles in the fingers and effects your grip. IMHO
