Dunlop All Weather Golf Glove
Advantages: Keeps a tight grip on the club
Disadvantages: Not essential I guess
Golf is a game which famously spoils a good walk as said by Mark Twain but wet weather spoils a good game of golf, one of the more embarrassing events when playing golf is trying to hit an iron and the club going further than the ball. Gripping your golf club is probably the most important aspect of any golf shot and unless you have a paid caddee with umbrella and a bag with a hood then in wet weather your golf handles will get wet. So to get any purchase on the shaft you need something with a decent degree of grip, so enter the Dunlop glove. The glove is only worn on the dominant hand and only really for shots up to the green, most players prefer to putt without the glove as the putting stroke is the most sensitive and the one where the player feels the need to sense the club through his hands.
So the glove is used from tee to green, and is very slightly padded and the areas around the fingers and palm are grooved facilitating the gripping of the club by the player. The club extends to just above the wrist and is secured by a piece of Velco, by the way please be considerate about taking your glove off whist another player is mid-swing as the ripping of the Velco support is loud enough to put a player off. As with nearly all golfing aids you can of course play without a glove and indeed some professional players like Freddie Couples never play with a glove but a golfing glove is one of the more useful golfing aids and will improve your game. The glove is particularly useful under wet conditions, when the grooving on the glove stops the club slipping and the player getting full value for his shots.
Dunlop sell an awful lot of golfing merchandise but there gloves are amongst the best, they retail for around £15 but pretty much last forever and can be washed if they do get dirty, muddy or grassy. They do help with gripping the shaft, they also keep the hand warm if needed during cold weather and are small enough to be kept in the players back pocket. They come in cream, black and white and I've been using one for a couple of years. I'd like to say it has coincided with a big improvement in my game but that would be a lie, however, I never play without it and would certainly buy another pair if these wear out.
So a useful golfing aid and one I'd buy again given a choice of different gloves.
Summary: A decent golf glove
