Choosing The Right Glove through FJ’s new ‘microsite’
Story published at 9:53, Wednesday, September 10th, 2014
FootJoy has launched a new microsite dedicated to teaching golfers about the importance of finding a properly-fitting golf glove and how this can enhance performance.
Golfgloveguide.com incorporates instructional and experiential content, outlining the five most important aspects pertaining to a glove’s performance: Equipment, Grip, Fit, Durability and Care.
According to FootJoy Ambassador and World No.2 Adam Scott, finding the best golf glove for you is crucial. He said: “All of the feel in your golf game comes through your hands. It is so important that I have good feel through my glove, as my hands are connected to the club, which is doing all of the work.”
This view is echoed by Ryder Cup star, Hunter Mahan, who said: “We need our hands so much in this game and we need to take care of them. I need a combination of protection and feel in my glove and I trust FootJoy gloves to provide both of these qualities.”
FootJoy estimates that more than 50 per cent of players are wearing the wrong-sized glove, often dismissing the glove’s importance as a piece of equipment and the associated benefits wearing the perfect glove can bring.
Indeed, a well-fitting glove can improve a player’s performance and provide valuable insight into the adjustments required in their grip and hand positioning. This information is readily available for consumers on golfgloveguide.com.
There is also guidance on what your glove says about your swing (relating to the most obvious areas of wear) and when to change gloves.
“The make and fit of a golf glove can affect a player’s swing more than most realise,” said Maria Bonzagni, Senior Director of Marketing, FootJoy Gloves and Accessories. “At FootJoy we’re dedicated to making the best golf gloves in the world.
“The care we take in their creation reflects a long-held philosophy that the right glove can mean as much to your game as the right ball or right club. The glove is not just an accessory but an essential part of every player’s game.”
