Did you know … Jim Furyk used a Callaway X-Series JAWS Wedge during the FedEx Cup Tour Championship to go 9 for 9 in sand saves enroute to his $11,000,000 payday. Up until this week Furyk was ranked 157th in sand saves. Furyk was quoted as saying, “…This was probably my best bunker week of my career…” Pick yourself up a Callaway X-Series JAWS Wedge at a discount price at GolfEtail!
Choosing the right golf glove can be as important as choosing the right spouse. A well-made glove will give you an excellent grip and feel, wick away the sweat and stand up to course conditions.
Golf gloves usually fall into 3 categories: leather, leather/synthetic blends and all weather. Here’s a quick rundown of each:
Leather Golf Glove
The choice of pros, all-leather golf gloves fit like a second skin, giving you superior control on the links. Often softer and more comfortable than a synthetic blend, a leather golf glove is a great choice for games where reputations are on the line.
- Leather golf gloves will stretch with use – buy a slightly smaller size than you’re used to
- Look for gloves with mesh or vents to allow your hand to breathe
- Air dry your leather gloves – they will shrink in the dryer

Synthetic/Leather Golf Glove
More moisture-resistant than a leather golf glove, a synthetic/leather glove is a durable and lightweight option for golfers on a budget. Many synthetic/leather golf gloves have genuine leather on the palm – to help with grip and feel – and synthetic leather on the exterior.

All Weather Golf Glove
For the die-hard golfers among us, neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night will stay us from the game. If you’re a die-hard, you definitely want a synthetic all weather golf glove, which is especially designed for wet, cold and extremely humid conditions.
