If The Glove Doesn't Fit ...
If your glove looks like this one, you either stopped playing years ago, have been pulling weeks with it or are as cheap as a flea-market T-shirt. Time to upgrade!
While you're at it, buy a couple of gloves, and rotate them. They'll last longer.
Here are some of the latest gloves:
NO SWEAT: FOOTJOY's SciFlex ($18) uses breathable leather and microfibers along the fingers of the glove; the TAYLORMADE Burner features an antimicrobial material on the back of the glove ($13); ETONIC's G>SOK ($16) extends the cuff and lines it with an absorbent wristband.
FLEXIBLE FRAME: Lycra inserts between the leather sections on the TITLEIST Perma-Tech ($16) and the CALLAWAY Tech Series ($12) are designed to stretch the way the hand stretches. This helps optimize the glove's fit.
FEEL ME: The leather on the MIZUNO Skintite ($15) can be less than half a millimeter thick, and NIKE's Dri-Fit Tour ($18) has a curved-finger design.
__SHOCK TALK:__The padded sections of the FOOTJOY ShockStopper ($25) and the Bionic from HILLERICH & BRADSBY ($25) provide relief to arthritis suffers and are U.S. Golf Association approved.
