How we test golf gloves

In terms of testing golf gloves, our process is similar to all the other golf gear reviews we produce in that manufacturers cannot pay for a good review and we tell it how we see it. We seek to try and be as comprehensive as possible in testing and reviewing the product which means we have used it over a number of rounds and in different conditions, because this gives us great insight into things like durability, fit, quality and so on. If you want to find out more about our testing methodology, take a look at our guide on how Golf Monthly tests products here.

We should say that everyone in the Golf Monthly team are golfers at a variety of levels which we feel gives an honesty and integrity to the reviews we produce. Golf apparel testing is headed up by Golf Monthly Senior Staff Writer Sam Tremlett, who is ably assisted by Technical Editor Joel Tadman and Digital Editor Neil Tappin

What to consider when purchasing a golf glove

Some golfers underestimate how important a golf glove can be to help you play better. Comfort aside, a glove can really help improve the grip and therefore the control you can have with your clubs, ultimately helping you to hit better more consistent shots around the course. But getting the right glove for you can sometimes be a difficult task. 

As you will have seen from the FootJoy gloves above, modern golf gloves come with a wide variety of technical features that can be quite overwhelming when you are looking to choose a glove that is right for you. But what things do you need to think about when looking into purchasing a new golf glove? Well below are some factors and pieces of advice to consider.

Which hand? 

For the beginners out there, a golfer who plays right-handed will typically wear a golf glove on their left hand. This is because the left hand is the lead hand in the swing provided the player has a conventional grip. Golfers who play left-handed typically wear a glove on their right hand.

We can hear you asking how should a glove fit? Well the golf glove should feel like a second skin with no excess material either across the palm of the hand or at the end of the fingers. Make sure there’s a snug fit across the palm and there’s no loose material at the end of the fingers. But you also don’t want a glove to be so tight that it feels like it’s cutting off the blood supply. You should be able to stretch your fingers and make a ball with your fist without the glove pulling or over-stretching.


Next up, know what type of glove you want. You may be after premium leather model which will perform totally differently to a synthetic, or even a wet weather model. These do different things and more importantly feel different so have a think about what you like to feel when wearing a golf glove and choose accordingly.


The top premium leather models are designed to feel soft whilst also giving you good feel of the grip during the swing. They are essentially designed to be like a second skin. Some gloves also have synthetic parts on them which are designed to offer more stretch especially along the knuckles. These synthetic gloves also might be more durable than the leather designs. Finally the wet weather gloves are more about protection than feel. The material on most all-weather models offers more grip the wetter they get so if you play in an area with a lot of rain, definitely consider a model designed to deal with it.


Particularly if you're playing in warmer climates, having a glove that provides ample breathability to your hand can really help improve the grip you get on the club. While our guide on the best golf gloves for sweaty hands lists a variety of gloves that provide excellent breathability to your hand. 


Also it is worth considering how much you want to spend on a golf glove because as this guide shoes there are models at different price points. Additionally, outside of FootJoy there are loads of brands that make gloves with varying prices so be aware of your budget before pulling the trigger on a purchase. 


Do golfers wear gloves for every shot?

Not necessarily. It depends on preference. A lot of professional golfers take their gloves off when they putt as it gives them better feel with the putter in hand. Plus it also prevents them from getting a bad suntan lines where the glove would have been. e

Why do golfers only wear one glove?

Most players only wear one glove as wearing two gloves may interfere with their grip and reduce the feel they get on the club. That being said, some professionals will wear two gloves when it is raining to help provide better grip and stop their hands from slipping on the club. 

Do golf gloves actually help?

Golf gloves provide more grip on the club than your hand will. That means the more grip you get on the club, the better control you'll have over the shots you play.
