Golf gloves can be made of leather or synthetic materials, and each has its advantages. A glove made of leather is more comfortable to wear than one made of a synthetic material and it will last longer, but it is more expensive. Also, a leather golf glove will "breathe" more than the others. On the other hand, a glove made of synthetics tends to grip the club more securely in wet weather than a leather one.
Golf gloves come in a number of sizes for men and women. Because your hands are the only thing touching the club, your glove must fit you perfectly. To maximize your ability to "feel" the shots better, you should choose a size that has little space between the tips and the ends of your fingers. A well-fitted glove will be smooth in the palm and fingers of your hand as well as fairly tight on the back of your hand.
Fitting A Golf Glove
Insert the four fingers of your hand, not including your thumb, into the glove. Gently push down on the parts of the glove that separate the fingers with the fingers of your other hand. If there is additional room between the tips of your fingers and the tops of those in the glove, you need to select a smaller glove. Once you have found the right size and have your four fingers in place, insert your thumb and gently close the glove. Your glove should be snug on all surfaces of your hand.
If you wear your wedding ring, there are glove available that have holes to accommodate it. And if you have long fingernails, there are gloves that have holes in the tips to deal with them. Also, there are gloves with ball markers attached to the back.
