The only thing between you and your grip when you are hitting a shot is your golf glove. It is therefore important that you give some thought into the gloves that you buy. It needs to be a perfect fit; not too big and not too small. Here are some tips to help you make this very important decision with ease.
Fabric – You need to have a good idea of the material that you prefer. You can get synthetic or leather gloves. Many prefer leather even though it tends to be costlier because it is long lasting and is very comfortable. Synthetic gloves are also great because whether you are in wet weather or hot weather, the grip they offer is much better. It is for this reason that you will find experienced golfers carrying both synthetic and leather gloves.
Fit – How the glove fits is a critical factor. The perfect glove will fit the entire hand tightly. They can be found in a wide variety of sizes for both genders and for wider hands also, known as ‘cadets’. The amount of material left at the tips of your fingers should be minimal. If you have too much, then it is clear that the glove is entirely too big. The glove should be smooth at the back of your hand and on the palm.
Wear it Right – When putting it on, do so the proper way. First put all your fingers in, with the exception of your thumb and then put the glove on. After that, put in your thumb and then smooth the back and front of it by tagging at the top. Be sure to close it with whatever is provided, usually a snap or a strip of Velcro.
Meets your needs – The glove you buy should meet your needs. If you need to have a better feel when taking the shot, buy half gloves. If you need to mark the ball you are using on the green, get gloves that come with detachable disks. You can even get them in a variety of colors, and if you like how leather feels but your budget won’t allow you to get leather gloves, get the kind with leather only on the palms and synthetic on the be back side.
Your budget – You can get them for as low as 6 or 7 dollars and as high as $25. Your budget will dictate which ones to buy.
