No matter how well prepared you are, playing in the rain eventually impacts on your gloves and grips. Unless of course you’re fortunate enough to have the services of a caddy and an endless supply of fresh dry towels. For most of us, the best way to maintain a grip on the club is to dig out the hood from the depths of the golf bag, drape a towel inside the umbrella and hope to keep dry for as long as possible. However, help is at hand in the form of the RainGrip® Extreme glove from FootJoy.
When grips are getting damp (not to mention soaked) and you have to step out from under your umbrella on to the tee and into the elements, RainGrip enables you to hang-on tight through impact again and again. It’s FibreSof™ Microfiber palm working overtime to help keep you focussed on your game and not whether you can hold onto the club.
RainGrip Extreme is available in left hand sizes for the right handed payer and right for lefties or for those who wish to get a grip on their wet-weather golf game with both hands, it comes in pairs.
If there’s one thing worse than lack of grip in the wet, it’s lack of grip and feel in the cold. Once again, FootJoy have it covered. The Golf Mitt is a great option between shots (and FJ Winter Mitts are as good as they come) but for keeping the circulation going when the temperature is dropping, the best option is the WinterSof® glove. Sold in pairs, they’re so thermally effective, that they often become a favourite both on and off the course.
FootJoy retailers will know all about both gloves and should have plenty on display ready for whatever the winter season is going to throw at us. If in doubt, check RainGrip and WinterSof out at footjoy.co.uk and ask your Pro to point you in the right direction.
