    Cord is the only way to go. I have the same issue and have tried most grips out there. Corded grips don't totally eliminate slipping but do the best job to reduce the frequency. I also find going with a larger grip helps. Fingers are not as close together, grip pressure doesn't need to be as strong, all help to mitigate sweating.

    have more than one towel...i can't stand wearing gloves... but I HATE it when my towel is dirty or wet...

    my father had soft grips... i found them a little easier to hold onto... I also regrip when needed... maybe before... AND WASH the grips before rounds... makes a big difference

    Try removing your glove after each swing

    I sweat profusely and switched to PURE grips. Problem solved.

    Yeah I hear ya. Me too. Mid summer I'm using 2 or 3 gloves. I switch them.around throughout the day. I'm not familiar with Pure grips. I have to have a look at those.

    When it's hot and humid I wear wrist bands like the ones used by tennis players.

    I agree with some of the fellow posters. take off your glove between shots and washing your grips help as well.

    I've also tried tennis wrap.

    I agree with Bobbyc, the Footjoy rain glove keeps the club in your hand when wet. It also doesn't seem to feel gross or look gross when wet, even with sweat.

    I use rain gloves. Found top flight rain gloves very light. My guess is not great for heavy rain or colder temperatures but great for hot weather.
    Also I bought a pack of Gripe grip cleaners fronm Golfworks. You have to ask for them. 2-3 will get the sweat off your clubs after a round on a hot day. They may work during a round but I haven't tried it. It is alcohol based so they dry pretty quickly.
