I've been using a FJ WeatherSof, but have been getting nasty blisters. Is that an issue with my grip, glove or both? Being a lefty, glove choices aren't great in stores.

Mizuno Skintite (defunct?) and Titleist Players Gloves are both excellent. Soft, thin and durable...everything you want in a glove.

Other options Titleist Permasofts and FJ StaSofts. I tend to buy in bulk when there's a sale as you can never have enough gloves.

No matter what you buy (as long as it's the Targa

I've got 3-4 spare gloves in my bag, but I always take the glove off after a shot, so the time it spends on my hand during a round is very limited. It is also off for putting. So even on very hot days, I don't have a problem with sweat at all. The extra gloves I use on wet days when the gloves get soaked from water.

taylormade r9 glove is top notch

I saw them and the burner glove and I really like the look of them. I'm kinda debating whether to go with the Targa (which by consensus seems like a good glove) or the burner(which will match my driver)

I've used a Callaway glove that wore out in a hurry, a TaylorMade that wore out even faster, and now I'm using a Nike Dura Feel. Oddly enough, one of the longest lasting gloves I've had is a walmart brand (Athletic Works?) glove. I like the Nike I'm using now, but we'll see how long it lasts. It might have something to do with the fact that my hands seem to be between a Large and XL in size, so I wear Large because I like a tight fit. That seems like it's tough on the gloves.

I take mine off between shots and for putting and I still end up using all four of my gloves when I play 18 on a normal summer day. I just sweat a lot.

This is trypically more of a grip issue. If you are getting blisters than you are probably gripping the club too tightly. Or...if you don't golf that often, you may just not have calluses built up in the common blister areas.

Thank you for the response. It's likely both since I just started to play two weeks ago and I definitely have been gripping the clubs too tight. Maintaining a soft grip has been the toughest thing for me to overcome so far.

Mizuno Retroflex. They fit my hand the best of any golf glove Ive ever used and they last me a really long time. I can typically get at least 6 months use (playing 2-3 rounds per week) before they start to turn black and get slick.

HJ Golf Allsoft Plus , best glove on the market for me. It has a nice bit of stretch material knuckles and fingers, plus more stretch on the velcro closure. It also has an extra heel pad and the fingers fit right. My left hand index finger is 1/4" shorter than my right hand, so most gloves leave a little flap at the end. I usually have to go with 'cadet' gloves in other models, but then the rest of the glove doesn't fit right. +1 for the Mizuno Retroflex. That was my glove of choice for 2+ years (go through about 5 or 6 a season), until I found the one listed above.

When my gloves get black and slick I do this.

Put it on and spray with leather cleaner. Get a soft nail brush and give it a gentle scrub. Pad dry with some kitchen towel. Leave to dry. Easily doubles the life of my gloves

Nike Xtreme Golf. It's the one above their bottom rung - about $12 a glove. Very breathable but still soft. And not too expensive so I don't mind wearing them out quickly in the summer when it's 95+ out all the time.

Bionic. First one I've had, and I really like how it feels.

    • Day 5: Started off with pitches, using a 7-iron, until I was finding center face and ball was starting on target. Then moved on to 3/4 swings with 7-iron, and finally a few full swings working on downswing priority piece. Then did some COVID-19 day 7 drill with 54* wedge. Finished by attempting to pitch 3 balls. Took 3 tries to successfully hit all 3, but one went over the net and backyard fence into the community pool next door (no one was swimming at least). 
    • Not going to lie, I'm terrible at keeping up with mobility exercises. Stretching after training is also important.
    • Yes, they cause the worse roadblocks and they slow things down the worst.  Why?  Because they are accepted as “smart” or “accomplished” and pontificate like they know everyone while you second guess yourself to make sure you are saying things that are accurate.   Hands down, these are the kind of people who lead to high turnover in companies.  They revel in their own enlightened opinions and it takes too long for them to drive their ignorance off a cliff sometimes.
    • What I’ve read is that cnn requires vaccination if you come into the office and they weren’t, so I guess this is the right thing to do.  We are faced with a very difficult situation and we need everyone to pitch in.  Flying on an airplane, going to a crowded nightclub or concert or many of the things we do is not a right, it’s a privilege based on a private company offering up something.  They have the right to request saftey for their employees and other customers.    Vaccine has been given to millions of people without incident, just go if you haven’t already.
