Best glove?

72 posts in this topic

Need to buy a couple new ones...any strong opinions one way or another?  I usually just buy a Nike Elite that the shop has where I play the most.  Thanks!

God bless,

Ryan

Durability should be a factor. Well, at least it was for me. Back when I used to wear one.

My favorite is the Taylor Made Targa Tour. It lasts reasonably long considering how much my hands sweat, it looks cool, and it's comfortable.

I wear the nike gloves. Not one in specific, but I try to get the nicer leather ones. I know I don't buy the top of the line glove that the tour guys use, but I do buy the middle class glove. Most of the time I get them at the Nike factory stores here locally because they're usually on sale for $7 or $8 & the golf store wants $18-$20.

Just don't buy the Srixon "hybrid" glove… That thing is crap!! I bought 3 at a golf stores closing sale for about $7 a piece, but they just suck! Not really leather, not built to last, etc… I can not speak on their "premium" gloves, because I have not tried them, but the one I did try was junk!

I caught a bad one of these recently that ripped right down the seam on the side as I tightened it. It was almost brand new. Luckily I had a back up Nike is my bag. For the most part though, these gloves have been more than serviceable for me.

I choose my leather gloves based on how they feel

If I want durability I use an all weather glove that I can machine wash

If you can find them, FJ has a premium glove called FJ Pure Touch.  Its amazing.  I tried one on in the store and its unreal.  I haven't played in one so can't speak to durability and they are about $25, but goodness they're comfy.

Im a big fan of the Mizuno Retroflex.  They fit well, last a long time (Im able to get about 6 months of playing 2-3 rounds per week, they dont get all that slick, they just get nasty and crusty from sweat) and are fairly inexpensive.

Ive used Nike gloves in the past and found they didnt last very long before they started to get slick and I found that FJ/Titleist gloves dont fit my hands very well.  The larges are too snug and the XLs are too big and start to bunch up in the palm after a round and start to get black and slick after a few rounds.

Im yet to try TM or Srixon gloves though, so I cant comment on those.

I just got one of those Srixon hybrids that you mentioned. What was wrong with them? I've played a couple rounds with it so far and it hasn't bothered me. Its like a cross between the FJ Spyder and a nicer cabretta glove. Was there some funky stretching or seams coming undone or something?

I found that it stretched out weird, durability wasn't very good, and the glove was actually short around the bottom of the hand. The material they are made with had a weird feel to it (I guess thats why its called a "hybrid"). I just did not like anything about it. Definitely would not buy it again, even if on sale for an "unbeatable price."

I know a lot of guys here like "durability" in a golf glove. I mean I do, but its not my first requirement. I LOVE breaking out a new glove, New gloves just feel so good!!! So once it starts to wear out, stretch out, or just fit different, I toss it for a new one.

Well I guess I will find out. I paid I think $11 for it, and so far I like it. But I change gloves whenever they get too crusty and stretched out, which happens more often than you'd think here in WA. One wet round can trash a glove, and cabretta doesn't mix well with water/mud etc.

The retroflex is a great glove

It doesn't feel as tight as the skintite but the leather is just as thin

I've been playing the Taylormade Targa Tour for two years.  Very thin, good feeling, and not overly expensive.  But lately, I've been having problems with excessive wear (due to grip problem) and sweat on the back of the hand.

So after some research I'm now swintching to and testing the Footjoy SciFlex glove.  It is supposed to last a bit longer, can take a bit more sweat and still has good feeling.  So I'll see how that pans out.  First impressions are positive.  It is a little bit more expensive, but seems to keep its shape a bit better as the Targa Tours.  Time will tell more ...

Does anyone know of a glove without (or minimal) side thumb seam?  I love the feel of a new glove but after a certain time the glove thumb tends to twist around my thumb, so the seam is right in the middle of my thumb bad which causes discomfort (I twist the part back around to make it comfortable, but its annoying)...


Does anyone else get this problem?  Maybe I am being cheap and using a glove for too long?  I have yet to find a glove which doesn't do this and have reverted to using no glove lately, its winter here so its ok, but summer I do get a case of damp hand if I dont use a glove.

    • I say both - it would be valuable to have this shot in your arsenal, but at the same time, if you can get better with the more standard partial wedge shots, you'll be better off in the long run. But this shot is great to have whenever you have a need to keep it low - if you have overhanging trees, or it's really windy, etc.
    • I like how you worded that because that's exactly how it feels. Basically a shorter swing and I try not to hinge my wrists at all. Just straight back and through to the target. I have to work to get my distances down but 90% of the time it went pretty much straight to the target. It took a lot of guess work out of my swing
    • Well...I got out on the course 2 weeks ago and it wasn't all I had hoped for.  Conditions were tough with all the rain we have had but I still botched more than my fair share of iron shots.  The good news, if there is any, is that my driving and my short game helped me stay below triple digits (shot 99 with a couple penalties).   I am right in the middle of busy season so I haven't been able to work on my swing as much as I would like but pieces are still improving.  My arm structure is looking much better coming into impact, which is also why I think I have been hitting a lot of fat shots recently.  I think that while we have been working on this, I need to remember to keep my "butt on the wall" and give my self space to extend (I asked my instructor about this so I will see what he says.  It also looks like I need to revisit keeping my front knee a little more still on the back swing. Another aspect of my swing that I have been thinking about is my transition.  It looks like I have a tendency to get my hips and lower body moving while my upper body stays relatively still.  I think that is the cause for my steep move as I have to shorten the distance between the club and the ball to catch up.  I asked my instructor about trying to move my upper body more in connection with my lower body.  Just doing practice swing and tinkering around with the mirror, if I have the feeling like there is a rod going from my right hip and connecting to my hands my swing seems to be much more shallow in the transition.  Everything looks better in slow motion without a ball so I will see what he says about this. I am uploading my last driver swing today as I really like how that is starting to look.  Hoping next week my iron swing will be catching up a bit.  
    • A lot of people link all there accounts and will post the same content on all outlets. There is actually an option for it. Hashtags have outgrown just instagram or twitter. Even if they can't accomplish anything. I see a lot of ignorant folks who text with them to add subtle emotion.    For example someone could text me " i just shot a damn 96 today. #golfishard". While ultimately the hashtag is irrelevant (and douchey), it still adds some substance to the text.   
    • Some of those are clever and accurate.  Mine?  No way.  In fact, it's downright inconceivable!
