Re: Golf Glove fitI'm glad someone asked this. I nearly posted the same thread within the last few days.
I played without a glove until a few years ago, and off and on since then. I have no idea how it is supposed to fit. I bought a Top Flite bargain brand at Kmart several years ago and was very pleased with it, to the point I never gave it a thought. But the last one wore out a few months ago and now I'm baffled that the replacements I've tried are not even close.
I am 6-4 and lefthanded but I play righty. My left hand is larger than my right hand. The Top Flite was an XL and fit fine. The Top Flites I've sampled recently in XL are noticeably smaller, and same thing with a few other brands. Recently I went up to XXL in a couple of brands and they were not enough. The Srixon was a farce. I'd hate to see what L is, if that was XXL.
In the past few weeks I've used one of the Top Flites in XL, but it seems too small. It's a struggle to get it on my hand, and when I do get it on, the gap from right side to the velcro pullover side is a strained inch and a quarter. I have to yank it together and pull the velcro considerably. It does make full contact with the pad but not comfortably, and no natural loosening after at least a half dozen rounds. Takes quite a while to get it off before chipping or putting. I've been pulling my irons since using that glove.
I guess my simple questions are:
* How much of a separation should there be from one side to the other, before the velcro is attached?
* What model glove plays true to size?
