G/FORE Golf Glove Review
Ask any golfer you know what is the most important factor in finding the perfect glove to play in and 99% of the time the answer will be how well it fits. It’s hard to argue that unless a glove fits properly and performs its intended duties any other aspects or features are irrelevant.
G/FORE is a glove maker that has the other 1% in mind. With quality craftsmanship and amazing feel the G/FORE line of gloves has taken a step forward by not only creating a fantastic golf glove but also making it a viable fashion statement.
Add a little color to your game is the headline you’ll read when you go to their web site and colors galore is what you’ll find. The color choices available remind me of the paint section you find at Lowes, a full color wheel of choices that even the most stylistically challenged golfer will find appealing. I received the Midnight colored glove from The Collection and instantly knew when I put it on that I was wearing a high quality product that was a perfect fit.NOTE: The G/FORE gloves do run on the small side so be prepared for that. I normally wear a Mens Small and with the G/FORE the Medium fits like it was molded for my hand.
Made from premium AA Cabretta leather the feel of the G/FORE gloves are outstanding. My hand wasn’t limited in anyway and the grip was vice like when I grabbed my club for the first time. The Cabretta leather really locks onto your grips and removes any concern of slippage or movement during the swing. The Velcro tab is made very well and holds the glove firmly in place. You won’t find yourself readjusting the glove at all, once it’s on, it’s on. The embroidered logo is a nice touch and it’s not overdone or bulky like other gloves where it could easily be a nuisance. Instead it just adds to the style of a well made product.
Fit and style aside, three of my closest friends and decided to put the G/FORE gloves to the ultimate test when we used them during my fundraiser the Death Valley Challenge. 75 holes of golf in 125° heat would test the merits of any product but for a golf glove it was most certainly a death sentence. I kept waiting for the glove to break down but round after round the G/FORE held its ground. After we had completed the 75 holes, where the temperature at one point got up to 132°, I looked down at the glove and was so impressed to see that it looked much like it did the first time I removed it from the packaging. Minus a few sweat stains of course.
Four rounds of golf is not the exactly a life span for a glove but considering the conditions we faced the glove performed flawlessly. I’ve used it several times during my practice sessions after the Death Valley outing and it still has maintained its look and feel. That says a lot about how well the gloves are made. If you’re looking to add some flare to your golf wardrobe but don’t want to sacrifice performance I can highly recommend you give G/FORE a try the next time you’re in the market for a new glove. Retailing for $35.00 you can see the entire line of G/FORE gloves on their website
