Benefits of Wearing a Golf Glove

A golf glove is an essential piece of equipment for the majority of golfers, amateurs and professionals alike. So, what are the benefits of wearing golf gloves?

    Grip

    Golf gloves offer a more secure grip on the club throughout your swing without the need for applying excessive pressure. They help prevent your clubs from slipping out of your hands and altering your swing.

    Protection

    Whether you’re spending an hour on the driving range or playing a full 18 holes, the repeated action of swinging hundreds of times can result in blisters and callouses if you grip too tightly. A golf glove helps reduce the amount of pressure that’s needed to hold the club and will help prevent blisters and callouses.

    Moisture Control

    If you have a propensity for sweating or get caught playing in rain, a golf glove can help keep your hands dry throughout your round. Golf gloves can also help keep your hands warm even during the coldest weather.
