I get questions all the time asking if it is important to play golf with a glove. To glove or not to glove! Remember, tension starts in the hands, moves to the arms and then to the body. When you have tension anywhere in your body, it can be so difficult to swing a golf club. A glove enables you to hang on to the golf club with less tension in your hands. That keeps tension from your arms and body, allowing you to have greater swing speed and, consequently, hit the golf ball further. I wouldn’t consider playing golf without my favorite golf glove. I suggest you find a glove that fits you like a second skin, but still allows you to make a fist. And remember, the glove will grow and stretch with time. That being said, replace your glove when it rips or becomes dirty and stretched out. In the end, it is a relatively inexpensive way to improve your game.
