These are waterproof so they don’t soak up water in wet weather or when your hands become too sweaty.

Reasons to buy
+Great feel, great club control

On the Golf Pride website there is a very handy grip selector which helps us with this category. So, after putting in your glove size, you can add in that you play in ‘wet/humid conditions’, explain that your hands sweat, what firmness you like in your gloves and what texture. This then brings us to the MCC Plus4 ALIGN with alternative recommendations for the MCC ALIGN and ZGRIP ALIGN. 

The MCC Plus4 ALIGN features a raised ridge with a micro-diamond texture that runs along the underside to help you get your hands on the club consistently and promote a square clubface while the grip combines rubber and cord for all-weather performance.

The Plus4 aspect simulates four extra layers of tape on the lower hand which encourages a lighter grip pressure and less chance of the bottom hand taking over.

The Lamkin UTX scores brilliantly for tackiness and traction. This combines that tacky feel with cord and allows you to have a softer bottom layer, made from an ACE compound for enhanced comfort and feel, while the top layer mixes in the cord which gives you more stability.

This is a similarly excellent offering for when your hands are clammy or wet. The beauty of the ridge is that you probably won’t even notice it and it will certainly get you into some better habits and, when it does start raining, then you will have a much more secure hold on the club. The all-weather control comes from having a brushed cotton cord in the upper hand to wick away any sweat or moisture.
