1. Get the Right Fit
Wearing the right size glove for you is very important. The glove should remain snug to the hand from fingers to palm. A tighter glove will act more like a second skin. A poor fit will allow for the glove to rip easier and allow for you to have less feel with the club in your hand.
2. Dry Out Your Gloves
Dry out your golf gloves during and after a round to allow your glove to fully dry, without getting crusty. To do this let it air dry on your bag or cart. If you do have a crusty glove right now, throw it out and grab a new one. Your game will thank you.
3. Store Away in Quality Packaging
Straighten your glove out to its original shape after your round. Re-insert your glove back into the packaging to increase longevity and allow your glove to continually fit the best. If you're already rocking North Coast gloves, slip it back into its original packaging OR invest in a Glove Stash- the perfect place to stash away all of your gloves.
4. Rotate Between 2-3 Gloves
Rotate between 2-3 gloves, especially on hot summer days. If your gloves are wet, there's an easier chance for the glove to rip. To combat this, rotate throughout rounds.
5. Take Your Glove Off Between Shots
Take your glove off between shots. This is basically a preference but taking your glove off between shots will keep your glove drier throughout the round… and you won’t have that pesky glove hand tan.
Bonus #1: When first putting on the glove, gently slip over your four fingers followed by the thumb. Gently slide the glove over your hand. Work fingers around to break leather into a better fit.
Bonus #2: Limit pulling on the cuff of the glove near the wrist. This can stretch your glove out more than it naturally would or should. Instead, smooth your glove out with your opposite hand.
