Favorite gloves to use?

30 posts in this topic

The time has come for me to by a new glove. I usually just use whatever I can find for a relatively cheap price, or I get as a gift. I play about once or twice a week, but will hit balls more often. I usually don't the expensive ones, so I'm hoping some of you guys have some suggestions.

Just wondering what you guys would recommend, thanks.

I've tried FootJoy, Nike, Mizuno, Titleist, Bionic and a whole slew of other gloves.

The best glove for me is the bog standard Srixon cabretta glove as it's perfect in every way for my hand size and the feeling I want from a glove. The fact that it's relatively cheap is nothing but a bonus as I'd happily pay twice the price for it.

Agreed.  I typically play the Srixon glove, but had to get a FootJoy when I was out of town.  I had never given it much thought before I had to switch, and I went back to the Srixon as soon as I could find one.  Turns out Wal-Mart had them for pretty cheap, who'd have thought that?

Ckeck out the gloves at Costco. They are soft,durable, and come 3 to a pack at a very reasonable price. They seem to run a little big.

Ive been using the Mizuno Retroflex for a couple years now.  It fits my hand perfectly, has good grip and lasts a long, long time.

I have used FJ Weather Soft gloves for many years. They fit snug, and clean up easy. I just fold a glove in half, put it in a back pockets of slacks that I wash and thats it. When I take out the slacks, I remove the glove and lay it flat on a towel to dry. Have a few gloves for two years.

+1. I picked up a Taylormade glove at my club when I forgot mine and it has a nice tight/snug fit - the material is very thin which results in a better feel for me.

I picked up a couple Edwin Watts gloves and it is a really good glove for around $6.00 each.

Nike Dry fit Tour.......a quality glove, plus I get a 20% discount at my home pro-shop.  I am a lefty so I order them by the box of six because nobody stocks a nice selection of quality gloves for left handed golfers.   I stock up..........and re-order when necessary.

Footjoy Raingrips, all year round, great in winter, don't get "sweaty" in summer, use to use leathers but wouldn't go back now

About a month ago, I picked up a 2-pack of Callaway Extreme RTT's.   So far, I really like this glove.    It almost seems to grip the club for me.

I have had a couple nike's and they both wore out extremely fast but did fit good.  Switched to Callaway and have been VERY impressed with the longevity and fit.  I had to pick up a glove the other day at the pro shop and they didn't have the one I normally get so I tried a Titelist that they said was a new model.  I HATE this glove.  It seemed to stretch out immediately and when I swing you can feel the grip pulling the glove away from my hand.  It looks good though haha.

For me its probably Titleist Perma Soft.  Good combination of quality & price in comparison to other top gloves & can be found on e-bay for around $10.  Retail here (New Zealand) for about $35 so I'm sticking with e-bay for now.  Also like Srixon (Cabretta) & Titleist players gloves.

    • Copy & Pasting my own answer on a similar thread here.... I agree about borrowing or grabbing a CHEAP bag of random clubs at a garage sale to start with but when you're ready to invest a little dough into your own set, there are really three ways to do it... 1 - Get a cheap beginner set from Golfsmith or Dick's (or other online source). Advantages (if you go instore) are you get to see/swing them first, some assistance with selection, a good matched set to start learning the game with even if they are not fitted. I recently spent $169 on a set of Lynx Tigress clubs from Golfsmith for my wife...same set is currently listed on their site for $299. They are actually quite well made/designed and will likely be all she ever needs for her game. Dick's also had a Top Flite set in the same price range...she liked the color of the Lynx set better. ;) 2 - Roll the dice with an online "Clone" company like Giga, Diamond Tour, Pine Meadow, Hireko Golf, etc...You don't get to swing them first but you can use their online fitting systems to customize size/shaft/grip options a little more than just the standard options in a box. I used to have a Pine Meadow driver that I could hit ever bit as far as my brother-in-laws latest greatest. This is a good article about clone clubs http://planet-golf.com/what-are-clone-golf-clubs/ 3 - Used brand name stuff, one man's trash is literally my treasure. Try EBay, Club Finders (or other like websites) and buy a used set of matched irons of proper size/flex (used Ping Eye 2 iron sets go for $90-125 all day) and then piece together your other clubs individually. Again, you won't get to swing them first and you could get burned on a deal along the way...but if you take your time and shop smart, you can assemble a nice bag without breaking the bank this way too. I'm lucky here in Dallas to have a PGA store, a Golfsmith, a dozen Dick's Sports, and also Club Finders Golf (used golf specialist) all within 20 minutes of my house so when I started building a new bag I decided to take the #3 route...but I am considering finishing it off with a couple of new clone wedges rather than going with older/used wedges. Good luck whatever you decide.

    • Great time! Laughs, good conversation and three new good people that I met. Hacker James is a fun character and his daughter is also. She has good setup form and with more playing and practice she can really improve. She hit a few good long drives, out driving her father from the same tees. Hacker James was lagging very well, but nothing fell for him, but he took it like the golfer that he is. Shindig is a great guy and fun to play with and talk with. His golf game is impressive. Long drives, good short game and putter. He's pretty consistent. Consistently out drove me. Shindig was using Game Golf, I'm looking forward to seeing the results. It didn't seem to bother his game.   I got up at 3:00 am, left home around 4, got to the course about 6:30 from Palm Desert. I liked the course. it has a great practice area, broken up into the driving range and different short game areas. The layout of the course was good as well as the fairways and greens. I didn't like some of the sand bunkers with very little sand, but overall it's a good course to play. The employees were friendly as well.   I shot 97, 48 on the front, 49 on the back. I putted so badly.  I missed so many putts within 5 feet. I drove the ball well, not too many out of the fairway, and they were still playable. I got in the sand and out pretty good most of the time, but I missed one short putt after another, it was killing me or better yet I was killing myself. My lagging was hit and miss as well. When I got home I took five putters to the putting green and selected another putter for my next round.  I did hit one of those shots that make you say " Oh yea". It was a 5-wood from the fairway, oh so sweet.  Looking forward to the next outing and meeting other Sand Trap members.    
    • I've always been at best average at speed events like sprinting.  But when I hit the driver well it goes 250 to 260 yards.  I gained maybe 30 to 40 yards this year and I'll turn 59 this December.  I'm 5'11", 150 lbs.  I've had leukemia, high dosage chemo and a bone marrow transplant, 5 years ago.  I'm definately not an example of great health. Most 42 year old men should be able to hit it further than 180 yards. Yes, technic and just as important... swing fast.  You should post a swing video in the member swing section of this forum to get tips from some experts around here.
    • Being in Scotland it's the opposite to your situation as in flooded greens.  I've went into pro shop and been given a free second game voucher / ticket a few times over the years.  I don't see it as an issue and as long as your respectful to the staff it's never been an issue with no hard feelings from either party.
