Which hand should you wear your glove on?
If you are a right-handed player, then you should wear and buy a golf glove that goes on your left hand. Similarly, if you are a left-handed golfer, you will wear your glove on your right hand. Some winter gloves and all-weather gloves will offer pairs of gloves for both hands, but this is fairly rare.
Why do professionals take their gloves off to putt?
Most professional players do take their gloves off to putt. It is not to prevent tan lines, or so it can look stylish hanging from their back pocket, but actually to offer more feel. The more layers you have on your hand, the more your feel is reduced. The feeling and nerves in your fingers and hand are further away from the actual grip, reducing feel. Putting, as many instructors preach, is all about feel. You have to feel the distance of the putt and stroke it, feeling the distance through the grip. So professionals choose to remove their glove to increase the feel and control they have over their putts.
What sizes do glove manufacturers offer?
As yet, there are no 'one size fits all' gloves. All glove manufacturers produce gloves that will fit your hand perfectly. Men's, women's and kid's sizes are offered by most manufacturers. In the men and women's sections glove companies usually offer small, medium, large and extra large gloves. However, a lot of manufacturers go a step further and may offer a men's medium large (ML) glove due to the fact that most men will typically fit between a medium and large glove.
What should I do if my glove gets wet?
It is always a good idea to keep more than one glove in your bag in case bad weather interrupts your round. Professionals will typically carry 4-6 gloves in every round they play and change 2 or 3 times in a round. However, they are being given gloves free! For amateur players, it can prove a tough test to keep a glove dry during and after a round. Making sure your glove(s) dry after getting wet is very important. However investing in several gloves will really help you get a grip on your game and will cost the same over the long run.
