So, you want to look like this guy: 2031173412_GPGX.jpeg.48fda135a1b8124ac9a10ae20ede9ffa.jpeg

Now, you can. Penfold is back in the USA with a line of Balls and accessories. Check the unofficial forum for a review of the Hearts and Dual iD. 

I purchased the GX glove a couple months back along with a sampling of Penfold products because I was excited to see this classic brand make a comeback. While the company is still growing, the gloves perform pretty well.

They are currently (10/25/2020) four colors to choose from, all reminiscent of the originals worn by the likes of Seve and the Black Knight. Overall, the construction is good. All leather with nice touches like contrasting piping and Penfold tag. The card suits are printed on, and in future generations, embroidery might be a nice touch. The stitching and leather quality are good, and the durability is actually better than other leather gloves I have used from the big boys, including Footjoy. The leather is much thicker than a number of tour style gloves I have used. Lots of people were hammering them on social media for the color bleeding and staining the player's hand, but I did not experience this. I play in the heat and sweat profusely, but did not play it in the rain. 

I typically wear out gloves on the edge of my palm, but this one is only showing slight wear, not the typical "blister" that shows up here. The fit is somewhere between a cadet and normal, and the XL fit me better than the XL from Footjoy and Callaway. I tried a Wilson glove earlier in the season, and it's a similar fit, but much more durable. Also fits like the Maxfli tour leather glove from DSG, but again, is more durable. 

Overall, I would recommend it from an appearance standpoint if nothing else. It's going to give you a cool retro look, no matter what. I usually wear out gloves over a month or so, but this one is still going strong. They are selling for $21 each right now, but through 10/26/20 they are 30% off with the code Masters30. Give them a shot, you won't be disappointed! 20201025_122045.jpg.a4d57ceeff52e51db8ef78deeee76da5.jpg
