A Brief History of the Golf Glove
Golf Gloves were not always so popular and took a long time to get established in the sport as a must have accessory like we see today. The first gloves to make an appearance in the game were spotted as early as the 1900’s and looked very different to the gloves of today! These early golf gloves tended to be fingerless and indeed backless accessories and it took decades before the golf glove took off and other players started to see the benefits of wearing one.
By the 1930’s gloves began to be used by top touring professionals on the circuit and one of the biggest stars of the time, Sam Snead was an avid user of the golf glove helping him win many times and perform to his very best. It was only by around the 1960’s that golf gloves were proving to be extremely popular thanks to improved technologies and manufacturing and it was more the norm to be seen using a glove and a rarity not to be.
Of course nowadays the Golf Glove has evolved considerably and the research and development put into providing you more comfort and grip is considerable to say the least.

Benefits of wearing a Golf Glove
There are many benefits to wearing a golf glove; these include providing exceptional protection from the elements but notably ensuring your hand (or hands if you wish to wear a pair) are protected from calluses and hard, painful skin that can be caused from repeated practice or indeed tension in your hold. A golf glove does of course provide much more traction for your hold during your swing which will only help increase your level of performance. The smallest benefit is of course style, gloves come in many different styles and colours and are a great way to finish off that stunning outfit you have in mind for your Saturday medal round.
Gloves should be fitted tight yet comfortable however not pinching the skin or making your fingers feel cramped inside. Golf gloves will generally stretch a little over time so a tight fitting glove where there is no sag over the palm is a must.
