Looking to take a grip of your golf game as the 2019 season draws to a close? Well, picking up a fresh premium golf glove is a good place to start.
The best new golf gloves on the market can be picked up from anything between a tenner and £30, so they don't bust the bank balance nearly as much as many other golf products on the shelves.
Why is the golf glove so important? Well, a premium golf glove will feel much more comfortable, be a lot more durable and fit much better on your hand than a budget one. As a result, this will help you hit your best possible golf shot every time.
When it comes to fitting a golf glove to your hand, you want to wear one that fits tight across your palm and fingers. There should be a gap of roughly 1/4" when pulling the velcro for tightness. Some of the sizing with different brands can vary, so we recommend trying them on for yourself before handing over your money.
We recommend on average changing your golf glove every couple of months, but that is dependent on how frequently you play. Obviously if you throw in general use, sweat, rain, differing climate conditions, and the grip of your glove will gradually wear the more you use it. If you play every week, then you might want to change your glove once a month. If you play less, you might only want to switch your glove twice a year.
We'll leave that decision down to how seriously you take your golf - all we say is keep checking the durability of your glove as it can make a huge difference to the control of your shots.
