1. Get the Right Fit
This is THE most important thing. If a glove is too big or small, there is no doubt the glove will rip or tear easier. Imagine wearing a shirt two sizes too small then bending over… It would rip, right? A golf glove will do the same. On the other hand, having a glove too big will cause access space in the palm, thumb and fingers. This access material causes unnecessary rubbing which leads to holes and rips.
2. Use Packaging to Keep Glove in Original Shape
Straightening the glove to its original shape and inserting them back into the glove packaging will help increase longevity. Our packaging was designed and modified to be the BEST place to keep a glove between rounds. We also have our glove love case, which can fit up to 4-5 gloves. Both products will help your gloves tremendously over the long run and both look GREAT.
3. Keep Gloves as Dry as Possible or Dry Out After Rounds
Keeping gloves dry is hard to do on hot, humid days. Luckily our gloves are lightweight and breathable but sometimes even this isn’t enough. Taking your glove off between shots and drying your glove out briefly after the round (before inserting back into packaging) will keep your gloves in tip-top shape.
4. Rotate Between Gloves
Rotating between 2-3 gloves, especially on hot days keeps your gloves from getting soaking wet, which ultimately will help them maintain their durability and form. The glove will also be less crusty after it dries.
5. Limit Hard Pulling on the cuff and Fingers
Pulling on the cuff and fingers will stretch out your glove over time. The more stretched out the glove, the less it will fit like a second skin to your hand, which in turn makes the glove easier to rip.
