Golf gloves are both functional and fashionable. There are some golfers who play without a golf glove and enjoy it. However, playing without a glove on your lead hand (left hand for right-handed golfers) regularly will almost certainly lead to blisters. A golf glove will protect your hand from the constant rubbing on the golf grip. It can also serve as a matching accessory for a golf outfit.

Top Flite XL Womens' Glove

The Top Flite XL glove is made for comfort and is quite breathable. That allows you to wick off perspiration and keep your lead hand relatively dry. It is made of synthetic leather and has a Lycra elastic wristband.
