What Golf Glove Wear Marks Can Tell You
Uvoider Premium Cabretta Leather Golf Gloves are high quality golf gloves that provide an ultra soft feel. Over time, wear marks will show on your golf glove. Typically, they are seen in the palm, heel, thumb, and finger tip areas of the glove. Collectively, the presence of these wear marks make up your unique golf glove wear signature and they can tell you about your game.
- Palm Wear Marks
- Wear marks in the palm area of the golf glove are caused by holding the golf club with too much pressure in the palms of your hand. For most golfers, if the grip gets too much in the palm of your hand, it will make it nearly impossible to hinge your wrists.
- Heel Wear Marks
- Wear marks in the heel area of the golf glove are caused by holding the club in the back of the hand. For most golfers, this is a good wear mark sign. It promotes a good hinge and use of the big muscles in your golf swing as opposed to gripping the club in the front of your hand with your thumb and forefinger.
- Thumb Wear Marks
- Wear marks in the thumb area of the golf glove can show how you are extending your thumb. A short wear mark on the thumb is indicative of a palm and finger grip style whereas a long wear mark on the thumb is indicative of an all-fingers grip. Both grip styles are perfectly acceptable and have their own pros and cons. The important thing is to know what grip style you have so that you can understand how it is performing for you.
- Finger Wear Marks
- Wear marks in the finger tip area of the glove can show the degree to which some or all of your finger tips are participating in your golf swing. This can be a bad sign. If there is to much wear in the tip of your index finger, it could mean that you are holding the club with too much pressure in the top of your hand. This will engage the small twitchy muscles in your wrist and forearms making it difficult for your big muscles to lead the shot.
