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.
Like many players I'm always looking for things nobody else at my club has, enter the Vice duro glove. Firstly the glove looks great! The neon accent sets it apart from other gloves and anyone who knows the Vice brand will recognize it. The materials feel as good or better than other gloves anywhere near this price point ($10ea. if you get 3). The fit of the glove isn't good. On the website they claim the same fit as the Titleist glove wich isn't accurate. The glove fits small through the palm and long through the fingers compared to the Titleist glove. The glove does however live up to the duro name. After several games and practice sessions the glove has held up better than expected. Overall this is a good product at a great price that is a bit unique.
The new EXO4 glove from FootJoy incorporates a FiberSof MicroTAC to provide a smoother feel with advanced Taction Grip.
