Does anybody else find that gloves strecth very quickly? I have trouble finding a glove that fits properly (i should be a cadet small in Footjoy but can't seem to find any), and when I do, they seem to stretch after one round. Can anybody recommend a leather glove that would keep it's size and shape for at least 3 rounds? And how they seem for sizing comapred to Footjoy or TaylorMade?

Thanks

I am a small in FJ and haven't had too many issues with them stretching too much. I have some Ping gloves (as a comparison to FJ) and they fit perfectly and again don't stretch either

With leather gloves there is always going to be a certain amount of give and stretching, i use Callaway dawn patrol gloves and they last pretty well.

how often you take it off and put it on again with also have an effect, as will how its kept after the round.

To be fair, I'm using TaylorMade gloves at the moment and they seem to stretch. Had trouble with Footjoy sizing when they updated the gloves but might go back and give them another try

In the 1960's golf gloves came in sizes 6 to 10 [with half sizes as well ie 7.5] choice of 9 sizes.
If unsure of your glove size wrap a cotton tape measure round the palm of your hand below the fingers [widest bit] amazing how many folk do not know that.:unsure:

I never really know what size I'm meant to be anyway. I'm currently using the 'Zero Friction' glove, which is one size fits all with plenty of stretchy bits on it. Maybe you could give that a try? Although if your hands are really small (cadet small is tiny isn't it?) they might be a bit loose.

Don’t be afraid to try ladies gloves too, I like my gloves to be really really snug.
I end up buying ladies Large as when they give a little that still fit perfect. Helped me with a grip pressure issue.

These are good gloves.
But if you take your glove off after every shot they can be a bit of a pain.
I keep mine on all the time ,even putting so I like the zero friction.

I don't find it too hard to get off and on, but my hands & fingers are reasonably skinny I suppose.
