FootJoy (opens in new tab), the number one shoe and glove in golf, has announced the launch of the all-new GTxtreme golf glove.

The FootJoy (opens in new tab) GTxtreme represents the ultimate in advanced technology and is designed to provide superior grip, fit and durability to help golfers enhance their games in all conditions.

The FJ GTxtreme is precision constructed from advanced materials to provide both male and female golfers with maximum advantage on the golf course.

FootJoy's new glove uses proprietary digital APL leather technology, as well as digital FiberSof material, to create a new standard in grip and durability in all weather conditions.

A soft, breathable FiberSof material along the glove's back, a PowerNet mesh and Power-Locking closure provide a consistent, contoured and leather-like feel for enhanced comfort and optimal fit.

"GTxtreme provides the best of all worlds: exceptional grip performance in all conditions, maximum durability, comfort, superb flexibility and breathability with a precision fit," said Russell Lawes, FootJoy's European Marketing Manager.

"Together with new high-impact packaging, prominent in-store display and a creative marketing campaign featuring Bubba Watson's tour-proven performance, the GTxtreme glove is sure to be a major hit when it goes on sale in November."

Watson, first wore the GTxtreme glove at this year's Open Championship, and has used it every round since then.

"Once I put the GTxtreme glove in play everything about it was great. It gives me more control to perform at my best," said the 2012 Masters Champion.

The FootJoy (opens in new tab) GTxtreme - with an RRP of £11.50 - will be available for both men and women in a variety of size and colour options. For more information, visit www.footjoy.com. (opens in new tab)
