As many other reviewers of this product have correctly stated, a golf glove is certainly not designed to keep your hands warm on chilly rounds on sunny winter mornings. They are designed to protect your hands and let you grip the club more securely when playing shots, as the grip on the glove ensures that better contact and friction can be made with the shaft of your club. If you choose to play without one, it can leave you with some extremely cut hands, and also will not improve your game at all. I purchased this dunlop DDH glove last week, from my local club, after i wore a hole in my old mizuno one. I have now used it on about 5 rounds, and feel that i have tested it efficiently to give it a once over on Dooyoo, without obviously commenting on the long term durability, as i simply have not had chance to experience that yet.
So then, lets start with the important part, the fit and feel. I stuck to the regular rule of buying golf gloves of ensuring it is skin tight (obviously whilst maintaining circulation) and have to say that it feels very nice on my hand. When i grip the club i also feel that i get good purchase on to it, and it is certainly as good, if not slightly better than my old offering, which i wore through last week. I also noticed that occasionally when i thinned shots, the glove did actually absorb some of the sharp shock that climbs up the club when this happens, which obviously is a big bonus, particularly on cold days. The glove also has numerous vents on it to try and let air get inside whilst playing, ensuring that the glove and your hand do not become sweaty or uncomforable while playing, a big bonus on a warm summers day. The glove also has a ball marker attached to the side of it, which pops off under pressure, which is a handy tool when playing with friends or in a competition, where the ball has to be marked on the green if it is not your shot.
I bought mine for £9.99 from my local club, and this is about the going rate for golf gloves. There are more expensive ones which claim to do wonderful things that range up to about the £30 mark, but i am very happy with my purchase and do not think that it makes a great deal of difference, which is unusual after i stressed the importance of good quality balls yesterday. I also believe it is cheaper online (unfortunately for me), and can be go for about £7.
A good product at a very good price. Obviously i hope that it will remain durable, but i have seen nothing so far that suggests that it won't. Good stuff.
Let's get straight to the point; A golf glove isn't for warmth, it's to help you grip the golf club. Worn on the golfer's left hand for right handed players, or the golfer's right hand for left handed players, the single glove look should normally be avoided unless you're entering a Michael Jackson lookalike competition.
When buying a golf glove it's important to choose the correct size - a general rule is to buy one size smaller than you would for a regular glove - it should be pretty much skin tight, but not so tight that it cuts off the circulation! I've always found that the cheaper gloves made by Dunlop are perfectly acceptable - and whilst they may not provide the best all-weather performance, they certainly offer decent value for money. Dunlop's DDH Golf Glove is one such accessory, and is available in three sizes. Costing £4.99 from Sainsbury's (yes, they apparently sell golf gloves now), the DDH frequently changes its design, so the one you purchase may not be identical to the one in dooyoo's picture.
Like 99% of all golf gloves on the market, the Dunlop DDH fastens via a large velcro tab which similarly keeps the item in question firmly on your hand during the golf swing. The fingers feature air holes which keep the hand cool, and the general feel is comfortable. Designed to be used in all conditions, the glove fairs fairly well when the grips of your golf clubs are damp, although in my experience, the pricier brands do perform better in the wet.
In terms of the additional features, there's a small metal ball marker which attaches to the glove as a 'popper' - this is really handy, as it means you're never short of a marker when the time arises. Durability wise, the glove is good - i've used the same one for over a year, and it's only now that a small patch on the palm and forefinger is beginning to wear thin - besides, at only £4.99 you can afford to replace these gloves on a regular basis. Last time I replaced a Dunlop DDH glove was due to the fact that the velcro had stopped sticking - but again, it was after a suitably long period of time before this happened.
Golf Gloves generally aren't all that washable - and this is certainly the case with this particular one - if you put it in the washing machine it comes out rigid like cardboard, and hence should be avoided. Overall though, I have no complaints about the Dunlop DDH golf glove, it offers great value for money and performs well above its small price tag.
