TaylorMade Burner Golf Glove

By Mike Camunas

The TaylorMade Burner glove comes from the Burner product line from golf accessory maker TaylorMade. It was made to complement the company's drivers and irons. Though no longer in production, it is still possible to find the Burner on the secondary golf market. 
 

Function

This burner glove is used during golf by a player to reduce the friction on the left or right hand and to help with better club control. Generally, gloves--especially this one--help keep the player's hand more dry, which helps prevent slippage due to sweat.

Features

The glove uses cabretta leather in the palm and thumb to enhance comfort and has a internal moisture-wicking wristband that keeps the hand and upper wrist dry and comfortable.

Identification

The Burner glove has the traditional Burner logo and comes in white and black or white and red and black. It has a smooth, durable synthetic leather construction that incorporates antimicrobial properties. It has microfiber technology that keeps the glove durable.

Size

The Burner glove is available in these sizes: cadet (small, medium, medium large, large, X-large) and regular (small, medium, medium large, large, X-large, XX-large).

Considerations

The main limitation with the Burner glove is breathability. It doesn't let in air as well as other gloves due to the type of leather it uses and the use of less vents on the fingers. It uses more cabretta leather than synthetic fabric, which can make the hand a bit hotter than with other gloves.

Comparisons

The Burner glove was a budget option from TaylorMade. The closest gloves in comparison to the Burner in features are the Callaway Men's Tour Series golf gloves. If you are a low handicapper golfer who spends every weekend on the green, you may want to find a thinner and more flexible option. However, for the casual golfer, the Burner is a more than adequate option.
