FootJoy StaSof Golf Gloves
size: S-XL size
+ great feel and fit
+ excellent grip
– soft leather is not as durable as some materials
FootJoy has been producing the premium full leather StaSof golf glove since 1980 and it remains the company’s most popular glove among tour players. It’s made from TactionLT Advanced Performance Leather, which feels great to the touch and offers that natural tack you’d expect from a high-end leather to help maintain a firm grip on the club.
Ventilation holes on the front and back of the fingers help keep the hand cool, while PowerNet mesh at the knuckles adds to the glove’s flexibility. The Velcro closure tab is slightly angled to fit the shape of the hand, helping to make this glove very comfortable to wear. While leather isn’t as durable as some synthetic fabrics, the StaSof’s durability is impressive, and we found it continued to perform after multiple rounds and practice.

Combined with a thermally engineered fleece upper, the result is a very classy glove that won’t disappoint in freezing conditions. Their Taction3 APL leather is very effective at maintaining grip even in rainy or wet conditions.
What really sets them apart is the versatility. These gloves are perfect for driving on cold mornings and going out on cold nights. They’re stylish and functional, and they’re our favourite. In testing, we also found that after the glove’s leather had softened further, we could touch the screen on a device or phone, which meant you didn’t have to take them off to check how close you were to a pin.

What to Consider When Buying Golf Gloves
Some golfers underestimate the importance of golf gloves in helping you play better. Aside from comfort, gloves can really help improve grip, which improves your control over the club, ultimately helping you hit better, more consistent shots on the course. But picking the right glove for you can sometimes be a daunting task.
As you can see from the FootJoy gloves above, modern golf gloves come with a variety of technical features that can overwhelm you when you’re looking for a glove that’s right for you. But what do you need to consider when thinking about buying a new golf glove? Below are some factors and suggestions to consider.
For starters out there, right-handed golfers will often wear a golf glove over their left hand. This is because the left hand is the dominant hand in the swing, provided the player has a traditional grip. Left-handed golfers will usually wear a glove over their right hand.
RELATED: Which hand do you wear your golf glove on?
We can hear you asking how the glove should fit? A golf glove should then feel like a second skin, with no excess material on the palm or at the end of the fingers. Make sure the palm fits snugly with no loose material at the end of the fingers. But you also don’t want the glove to be so tight that it feels like it’s cutting off the blood supply. You should be able to stretch your fingers and punch the ball without pulling or overstretching the glove.
Next, know what type of glove you want. You’re probably looking for a quality leather model that’s quite different from synthetic or even wet-weather models. They do different things and more importantly feel different, so think about how you like the feel of your golf glove and choose accordingly.
The top quality leather fit is designed to feel soft while giving you good grip throughout your swing. They are essentially designed to act like a second skin. Some gloves also have synthetic components designed to provide more stretch, especially at the knuckles. These synthetic gloves may also be more durable than leather designs. In the end, wet weather gloves are more about protection than feel. Most all-weather models have materials that provide better grip when wetter, so if you play in a rainy area, be sure to consider a model designed to handle the rain.
Especially if you play in warmer climates, having a glove that provides plenty of breathability for your hands can really help improve your grip on the club.While our guide to the best golf gloves for sweaty hands (opens in a new tab) Lists various gloves that provide excellent breathability for your hands.
It’s also worth considering how much you want to spend on golf gloves, since this guide shoe comes in models at different price points. Also, there are many brands other than FootJoy that make gloves at varying prices, so know your budget before buying.
Do golfers wear gloves every time they hit a ball?
unnecessary. It depends on preference. Many professional golfers remove their gloves when putting because it feels better in their hands. Plus, it keeps them from that nasty tan line where the glove should be.electronic
Why do golfers only wear one glove?
Most players only wear one glove, as wearing two can affect their grip and reduce their feel on the club. That being said, some pros will wear two pairs of gloves when it’s raining to help provide better grip and keep their hands from slipping on the club.
Do Golf Gloves Really Work?
A golf glove grips the club better than your hand. This means that the harder you grip the club, the more control you have over the shot.
