    Why is my golf glove wearing so fast?

    This is an excerpt from an article by Jeff Ritter, PGA, writer for Golf Tips Magazine:

    Worn-Out Palm
    The most common glove-wear pattern, a worn-out palm is caused by holding the club in the palm instead of correctly holding it beneath the heel pad of the hand and fingers. Gripping the club this way leads to a lack of distance and a tendency to slice. What’s really amazing about grips like this is that they can wear down a glove after only a few holes! So if this has ever happened to you, and you thought that new glove of yours was defective, think again.

    The Fix: Hold a ruler vertically in your glove hand. Cradle it in your fingers and feel the heel pad of your glove hand resting on top. This home remedy is a great way to exaggerate the feeling of a proper grip.

    Thumb Tear
    Look at the massive tear in the thumb! It resulted from a two-fold problem: poor thumb placement and incorrect grip pressure (too much or too little) applied between the thumb and the handle. This grip usually results in a lack of control.

    The Fix: Adopt a “short thumb,” where the thumb is cinched up and pinched against the top of the forefinger. Hold a business card between your thumb and forefinger with a grip pressure of “3” (out of 10) to learn the appropriate feel.

    Index-Finger Wear
    A tear or wear pattern here indicates a poor connection between a player’s hands and is usually caused by an overlapping grip, where the dominant hand’s pinkie digs into the glove hand’s knuckle. You may even notice a callus forming on your dominant hand’s ring finger. What results isn’t just a torn glove but discomfort as well.

    The Fix: Extend your pinkie farther into the gap that separates the knuckles on your glove hand. Another option is to adopt an interlocking grip, where your dominant hand’s pinkie and glove hand’s index finger “wrap” around each other.

    How do you preserve the longevity of your golf gloves?

    Rotate your gloves! Switch gloves throughout your round and remove them between shots. This reduces moisture from perspiration. 

    How to remove your glove properly?

    To remove your glove, peel Velcro with opposing hand and remove from the base of the glove by pulling from the palm and then gently from the fingers. This will prevent any unnecessary stretching of the soft Cabretta leather.

    How to store my glove?

    Store gloves flat to preserve their shape. Ensure it is dry! 

    How should it fit?

    Too snug or too loose, gripping too hard, and checking where the glove typically wears out, whether the thumb or index finger may indicate gripping issue or the glove being improperly fit. 50% of golfers wear a glove that is too big, very few one too small. 


    The Most Exotic Golf Gloves

    With a new generation of golfers taking up the sport, plus a renewed interest in outdoor sports after the COVID pandemic put many indoor activities on indefinite hiatus, there’s been a kind of “gold rush” of golf equipment and apparel. 

    New and experienced players alike are finding new meaning in the golf course and they’re looking for gear that not only performs well but also reflects their personality and adds sophistication and fun to the game. 

    Style and Swagger

    Now let's talk about the look of these gloves because Kepel is a brand that prides itself on style and elevating golf gear to the level of art.

    It’s clear that Kepel understands golfers and how to create a glove that can improve both their technique and confidence. What’s also clear is that the brand understands that personal taste runs the gamut when it comes to design, offering gloves that span the whimsical and eye-catching (like the Pina Colada, which features a pineapple pattern on a teal background) to subtle and understated (such as the classic white or black of Arctic White and Training Ground), and some in between (like Dark Forest and Colores, which feature a neutral background color accented with a pop of colorful flowers). 

    Materials and Construction

    No matter how good a glove looks, if it’s made poorly, it’s useless. So let’s start by looking at the materials and construction that go into Kepel’s line of golf gloves. 

    Kepel golf gloves come in the standard thickness of 0.4 to 0.45 mm and are made with a Cabretta leather palm and a synthetic upper. 

    What does this mean in terms of play? The leather palm creates a sturdy and natural grip that almost feels as though you aren’t wearing a glove at all. 

    It’s impossible to overstate how much this can impact your game. In our experience, there’s really no going back once you’ve felt the ease and confidence that a Cabretta leather glove gives you to swing freely, confident in the knowledge that your glove won’t let the club slip or slide around in your hands. 

    Easy Ordering and Stocking Up

    It’s one thing to make a great product, and another to get that product to your customers in an efficient and convenient way. Kepel has thought of this, too.
