I hate to play golf in the rain, primarily because I've never been able to find a golf glove that I feel comfortable wearing when it's wet. That is, until I played golf with the Talon golf glove from Caddy Daddy.
The idea came to the Caddy Daddy folks after watching football wide receivers use gloves with sticky palms that help them hang on to the ball in all conditions. They figured the idea would carry over to golf, so they started working on a prototype. The initial variations were too heavy, so they worked to develop a thinner version more appropriate for golf.
What they've come up with is excellent. The glove is made from micro-suede and mesh and boasts that sticky material where you grip the golf club. It's sticky, but not too sticky, so it doesn't restrict your hand movement though the swing. It's incredibly comfortable, almost like a good batting glove. (I remember those days.) And the glove gets better the more wet it becomes. In fact, a little water freshens its grip.
Some people may not like that a trace amount of the sticky materials seeps through onto your hand during play, but I kind of liked it for short-game shots. It would work great in all conditions, including when it gets humid in the summer.
At just $18 per glove, it's an incredible value that should last longer than your run-of-the-mill leather glove.
