Are you stuck on a glove?

33 posts in this topic

The only glove that feels right on my hand is the Callaway Warbird. I was lucky enough to fine 2 glove packs on sale at walmart this morning, so I bought out their 16 XL Left hand warbirds, 7.99  (good thing I didn't pay $8, huh?) for two, which is a fantastic deal.

I have tried Footjoys, Nikes, TM, G FORE, Titleist, Loudmouth, and Wilson Staff. Of those, if I had no choice but switch, I would go with the Titleist Players Flex glove or the Nike Durafeel but imo, none of them come close to the Warbird in feel and comfort.

I do have a very nice Puma that is still in the package, so maybe that will be good, but I doubt it will surpass the warbird for me.

So what glove/gloves do you play? Are you stuck on one? Or do you just buy whatever?

No glove no love...I have been gloveless since '92.

This year I've been using the Titleist Players and Flex gloves. Love them both.

I use the Mizuno.  It seems a better quality leather, and more of it.  My regular FootJoy or Titleist gloves seem to wear out and lose their elasticity after a few rounds, but the Mizuno glove does not.  My hand sweats quite a bit when I play, and it dries the gloves out to the point where I can no longer grip the club comfortably.

Same for me, if Freddie can go gloveless, so can I......(and it's just one less thing I spend money on)

really? the new warbirds feel stiff as can be to me.i wear a medium large and i could barely close my hand with that stupid glove on. yes u have to give them time to break in but no thanks. tried on the TM R11 and it "fit like a glove" . i like the older warbirds from a few years ago

For many years now, I've used Master Grip's Dynagrip Elite glove.  It was used by Hale Irwin winning the open in about '90. It's a very thin, soft cabretta leather, with no "button" ball marker, and has elastic across the knuckles. For 13.95, you get two gloves. Lasts me many rounds.  They were out of my size last time I ordered, so I got the 11.95 Dynagrip ones - they are crap.  They also have a Techgrip for 13.95 (for 2), which are OK, but I think the Elite is more comfortable.

I used Footjoy Stasofs forever. Recently they seem to have changed. Fit and feel just don't seem to be what they always were. Maybe my imagination, but I've switched to Titleist Players and like them a lot...

Im stuck on the Mizuno Retroflex.  For me they just fit my hand so well, have great grip and last a long, long time.  Ive tried other gloves, even other Mizuno gloves but I always come back to the Retroflex.

I completely understand. Just recently I've noticed they don't fit the same across the thumb.

The Titleist Players Glove is extremely durable and resistant to hardening...

It's pricey but it stands the test of time, worth the investment IMO.

I love the Callaway Warbirds. They feel great wrapped around a club handle and they also fit my hand perfectly. Usually a glove always has a finger or two that doesn't quite match up with the actual lengths of my fingers, but this glove gives meaning to the expression "fits like a glove". I love it. I think it's either the only (or one of the few) reviews I've written here with a full 5 stars. And at $15 for a 2-pack, it's a good deal.

I keep trying to play without my glove but it just feels weird swinging without it now.  I think it does help with my grip when it is really humid out but otherwise I don't think there is much benefit.

I have been using the Footjoy weathersoft gloves for a while now, they are my favorite.

I too, have been playing with the Wardbird glove for quite some time now.

It's cheap, light, durable, and breathes well.

I prefer to use two gloves and like Tommy Gainey I don't take the gloves off to chip or putt. I just got into that mode and it feels right for me. BTW: I have also seen Bill Murray wearing two gloves (Spakler Style!!).

I have tried numerous gloves over the years. I really like the Callaway SPANN-X gloves - they  have the Tour Authentic with same SPANN-X now. I gravitate back to FootJoy WeatherSof, but I recently tried the TopFlite Feel gloves because they were much, much cheaper at BudgetGolf. The result so far is great. The TF feels good, nice and snug and grips really well. As far as durability, I have not had any issues so far (10 rounds), but will have to wait until more usage. I also rotate sets of gloves throughout the round because (especially in the summer heat) I sweat quite a bit and my gloves do get wet.

Happy Golfing,

George

I use the Footjoy gloves, I have used the Callaway Warbird before, but it ripped so back to FJ for me.

I have been using the Nike Dry Fit Tours for the last few seasons.  They breath really well and keep my hands cool, the leather is solf and they last a really long time.

    • I am looking for a new set of irons, currently play Mizuno JPX 825 Pros 5-PW. I play off 7.5, with the aim of getting down to 5 by the summer. I find my current irons are a bit weak in terms of loft compared to some iron sets on sale at the moment, I carry a 7 iron about 140 yards. Whilst I don't want a set with extremely strong lofts, I would like to gain a few yards with each iron. Also as I am at university I don't get to play as much as I used to, so am looking for a bit more forgiveness to help me out on the course! Not too fussed with staying with Mizuno, if there are better options elsewhere. Cheers in advance to any replies.
    • Yeah i think you make a good point. it might be easy to dial it back if you have a solid full swing, but i don't think a half swing is the same as a chipping swing ya know. and i think you're absolutely right, there is a little bit of a turn in the half swing as well. that is what i alluded to earlier i think. it was just the amount to focus on a full turn vs. 3/4 turn/ vs. half turn.  That is so true as well. I could stand to limit some difficult second shots, and potential drops from a hazard. I actually didn't think about this that much. The other thought i have on this is the feedback from the distribution of practice, is that whether i am in position at the top of the full swing or not, my mind is able to get the club face back to the ball to at least compensate for being out of position and get the ball out in play, meaning that the practice itself( not the outcome of perfect practice) is not always as beneficial although it can have more benefits in its mastery! Where as the half swing, if you are not in position at the top of a half swing, it is very very difficult to compensate and get back to the ball, while not as much improvement, the improvement is easier to come by i would think. The swing really does have to be very precise to even be able to make solid contact. So that is the dilemma I see in placing more emphasis on one or the other. Ill revise my thinking and say that they are both more so equally important. for every full swing, there needs to be a 3/4 swing as well as a half swing so that you can still make sure to keep good position throughout the entire swing. But that we also match up the benefits of different types of practice with their ease of mastery and what that is dependent on. I think i will see where that philosophy leads. start to practice them equally as much and see how the improvement goes. It is always great to hear this feedback to help me revise my thoughts on the golf swing. appreciate it @DaveP043
    • Well it is not as simple as just throwing my leg up. It would be more of a result of increased momentum of my turn. I do try to catch the ball on my upswing  and hope to carry it through.
    • I don't think you would want to do it on purpose.  Meaning like @MRR stated you don't want to do it consciously as this involves different muscles and memory patterns and will probably throw your swing off.  I'm not sure that any of these guys realize they are doing it.  Obviously they have seen it while watching themselves, but I don't think its something they were trying to do for extra power.  Bubba Watson does it too, so its not just the "vertically challenged" that do it they are just swinging at 120+mph so that's the result of it.
    •  If Donald Ross didn't visit the site of a golf course when asked to design it, what process did he use to design the golf courses? Did he required any sort of geographical information, like a survey? Here's an excerpt from a letter he wrote to Ponkapoag:
      "I will require a general plan of the property on a scale of one inch equals one hundred feet and contours at five foot intervals to be supplied by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. After the course is laid out I will submit a general plan of the whole layout and also individual plans and specifications for each hole. Mr. Walter B. Hatch, my Associate...expects to call on you..." In the case of Ponkapoag, he did visit. However, the letter gives you some sense of how part of that process worked. ......................................................
          How would you describe his philosophy when it came to designing a golf course? Ah, one could write an entire book on that alone. There's a large chapter on that in the Ross book (I did another book on how they transformed the barren wasteland of Pinehurst into a dreamworld previously: amazon.com/author/chrisbuie)
      He tried to incorporate all the natural features of the land. He tried to accommodate a wide variety of playing levels. He wanted thinking/strategy to be part of the experience. There are many, many different parts to how he approached design.
      Basically, he tried to make his designs as invigorating and intriguing and enjoyable as he could. ......................................................
       Did he actually visit the Lucerne area to see the course or was this a "postcard" design?  And are there very many Donald Ross 9 hole courses remaining?
      I don't think there are an abundance of 9 hole courses. In the appendix of my book there is a complete list (as we know it at this time) of all his courses. One of the items noted is how many holes he designed at each course. Regarding Lucerne, have a look here and tell me what you think and we'll discuss further:
      http://givenmemoriallibrary.net/vex/vex1/67EEF659-E134-4E4C-8C8E-397028601766.htm That is from the Tufts Archives in Pinehurst, by the way. It is an organization absolutely worth supporting.
      http://giventufts.org/tufts-archives You can find information on many of the individual courses here:
