A Guide to Golf Gloves

By Steve Silverman

Gloves are more than a fashion statement in the game of golf. The majority of golfers wear a glove on their lead (top) hand to help the golfer get a firmer grip on the club and help prevent blisters. A glove is especially valuable in the heat of summer, when it helps a golfer stay dry because it can wick away moisture from the hand.

Bionic Technologies Golf Glove

The Bionic golf glove has 12 distinct pads on the fingers to help the golfer get a better feel for the club. It was designed by a hand surgeon, and it gives the golfer greater club control than other gloves or playing without a glove. (2009 price: $24.99)

FootJoy StaSof Glove

This glove is designed to stay soft and comfortable in the course of an 18-hole round played in extreme weather conditions. Its biggest attribute is the wicking material that takes moisture away from the hand during hot or poor weather conditions. It also has a mesh insert for comfort and breathability. (2009 price: $18.99)

Callaway Warbird Glove

The Callaway Warbird glove uses synthetic leather on the palm for an improved grip and durability. One of the best attributes are the finger seams that allow movement and an excellent feel for the club. (2009 price: $16.99)
