Do your golf gloves wear out too easily? After only a few rounds, is there a particular spot where the stitching starts to thin? If you’re like most players, you’ve worn a glove with a hole in it, which isn’t helping your game.
To combat this problem, FootJoy has launched golfgloveguide.com, a site designed to show golfers how to care for and choose the proper glove in order to improve feel and make gloves last longer.
Footjoy identifies five important aspects of glove fitting and performance: equipment, grip, fit, durability and care. The company estimates that more than 50 percent of players are wearing gloves that don’t fit properly. It’s likely that an even higher percentage of golfers don’t properly care for their gloves. There’s nothing worse than pulling a stiff, crusty glove out of your bag minutes before your first tee shot.
“The make and fit of a golf glove can affect a player’s swing more than most realize,” said Marie Bonzagni, senior director of marketing for FootJoy gloves and accessories. “The care we take in their creation reflects a long-held philosophy that the right glove can mean as much to your game as the right ball or club.”
