  1. Valid point, seems such a shame to throw them away after such a short life.
  2. They can't be knock-offs as I bought from the largest golf retailer in the UK
  3. UK and Veteran would be the ones for me, thanks!
  4. I'll pick up a pack of these on my next visit to Costco, thanks!
  5. So I guess climate/humidity is a major factor in your preference not to wear a glove? Here in the UK it's pretty much wet/rainy 90% of the year... the other 10% is hot and sweaty so I really struggle without. I must say, I can't recall seeing many golfers around here who play gloveless...
  6. I'm the same, I just don't feel comfortable swinging without a glove.
  7. Here's a topic that isn't discussed anywhere near as much as it should be... Golf gloves. Maybe it's not as sexy as a brand new driver or some shiny wedges, but in my opinion a decent glove gives so much confidence and may be worth a handful of strokes per round (no pun intended). Am I right? I've tried a huge number of gloves in the short time that I have been playing golf and have concluded that my top 3 (at the moment) are as follows: (pictures below) 3. All Weather Glove - synthetic (cost £5.99 GBP) A surprisingly comfortable and soft glove, considering it is a value-for-money option. Grips well in all conditions (except freezing cold!). Hard wearing - One pair has lasted a dozen or so trips to the driving range as well as a couple of rounds, and is still going strong. This is my go-to glove for messing around in the garden, range work and when it's not really warm/totally dry. 2. Elite Glove - Cabretta leather (palm) and synthetic leather hybrid (cost £12.99 GBP) Beautifully soft glove, stretches to fit perfectly around my odd-shaped hands. This glove provides the best feel of any glove I have previously tried. I find that this glove is somewhat durable for a soft leather, but nowhere near as hard wearing as a synthetic glove. The first pair lasted 5 or 6 trips to the range as well as a couple of rounds in the summer before the thumb started to stretch slightly and lose a little grip. It still felt good but I replaced it with a new pair. This is my glove of choice for dry/warm weather. 1. RainGrip - Pair, Synthetic (cost £19.99 GBP for pair, including towel) I was a little sceptical about these gloves but they very quickly became my favourite gloves by far. Firstly, I had never worn a pair of gloves when playing golf, only a single glove on my left hand. This felt peculiar initially, but a couple of holes in I was loving them. They gripped well in the dry, but surprisingly really came into their own once they started to get wet. Made from an unusual microfibre type fabric which seemed to become more tacky/grippy the wetter it got! By this point the rain was coming down heavily - a common occurrence here in the UK - and I still felt 100% confident swinging my club around. As the winter months approached I started using these gloves each time I visited the range and wore them for every round I played over the winter. They are in near-perfect condition still and I'm actually looking forward to my next round in the rain! I'd love to hear your thoughts on what gloves work best for you. What glove are you using right now, and why? How much would you pay for a glove? How long does it last? Mo.
  8. Hi, Great idea to include badges. I'd appreciate the UK, Veteran and Broke 100 badges be added to my profile... Many thanks Mo
  9. I really wanted to dig a little hole in the lawn just like James Robinson but I'm sure you can imagine the look Mrs Average Mo gave me... decided to settle for just poking alignment sticks into the ground to simulate the pin...
  10. Hi JvS, Welcome! I'm at a similar point in my golfing journey so I look forward to following your progress to see if I can pick up any tips... All the best Mo
  11. Hi everyone, I've already managed to pick up some great tips and advice from forum members who have kindly responded to my posts on DIY training in the garden as well as a problem I've had with a club recently. What a great community to be part of! As a new "Recruit" on the MGS forums I'm working toward shaking this label and becoming an actual member, learning as much about this beautiful game along the way. I guess with the current lockdown situation we've got plenty of time to help each other out... I hope you are all doing well and staying safe.
  12. I picked a box of these up a couple of months ago for around £30 (GBP) here in the UK to replace my previous ball of choice: the Wilson Staff DX2, which I loved playing as as all-round performer. These newer Kirklands are a lovely soft ball, which feels beautiful when chipping and putting. I'm not 100% sure how great they are when used with driver/woods as I don't get much distance anyway, so can't pass judgement on that front - it's a work in progress. One thing I do find is that they discolour very very quickly and are difficult to clean after a round. The outer cover seems to rough up and cut up very easily compared to other soft-feel balls I have used in the past. I've concluded that these are a really nice feeling ball which I will continue to use as my ball of choice, but am aware that each ball may only last one or two rounds - depending on how many bunkers or muddy puddles I end up in. Overall, they're great value, despite not quite living up to the earlier version of the Kirkland Signature ball.
  13. Amazing! Thanks @M. Parsons Much appreciated This can be my homework for this week.
  14. I've been having the same problem with other areas of my game that I do actually practice such as driving. Maybe the pressure of playing actual golf gets to me... I seem to work out the faults on the range, but forget it all once I step up to the tee box. Maybe one day it'll all click onto place...
