Where does everyone get the most glove wear? I get most wearing just under the thumb and the underside of my palm.
Depending on one's grip, it depends on where you get wear. By gripping the club in the base of your fingers will help alleviate wear in the palm area (which comes in most contact with the thick, butt-end of the grip). Check out FootJoy's Facebook page on glove fitting!
L Hand Thumb pad. I am told I grip the club to firmly.
No where........ I don't wear one!
I have considerable wear signs on the thumb pad, but I know I grip the club too tight in that area. A hard habit to fix in my middle age.
Typically, the heel pad and thumb are where the wear occurs - probably due to all of the mishits I make. The grips one uses makes a difference too...the Golf Pride Tour Wrap grips keep my wear to a minimum. Cord grips tear my gloves up in a hurry.

Bottom of the palm where the butt-end of grip rests.
Also since I've changed from overlap to interlock:
Top side (facing thumb) of the index.
The V55 was a great grip, but could flat out eat gloves. I tried to play "gloveless" with the V55 for a while but It made my hands rougher than sandpaper and still would slip a bit in summer, due to sweat. The SciFlex glove, Tour Wrap grips and Grrrip Plus lotion have almost eliminated any slippage, except the excessive mis-hits.
For me it's the palm area right below the little finger, closest to the butt end of the grip. That side hurts quickly when I practice without a glove.
Thumb and palm for me just like the OP
Am a multi compound Golf Pride grip person myself.......guess the palm area shows the most wear....but normally don't wear them out from use, wear out from age..........do have strong grip....but not tight grip......WeatherSofs in the summer and SofJoys when the humidity goes away......
