Me And My Golf True Grip Glove
Understanding how and where to grip the golf club is fundamental to success on the course. You’ll be surprised to know that a large proportion of amateur golfers are handling the club incorrectly, which can lead to unwanted results and in extreme scenarios, dampen your drive to get out and play golf. Me And My Golf are responsible for many helpful training aids, and their True Grip Glove is yet another product that has been released with the aim of helping recreational golfers improve their ability.
The glove comes equipped with a blue silicone area on the inside of the glove. Simply align your fingers along the area to perfectly grip the club in your hand. To enhance grip, non-slip silicone palm and finger application helps to provide phenomenal performance. The golf swing requires alignment throughout the body, which is why the dual-knuckle and arrow tip indications ensure that knuckles and the right shoulder are aligned to one another. As is popular with Me And My Golf products, the glove comes with downloadable lessons to help the user get the most out of their glove and training aid.
- Grip alignment ensures perfect grip and set up on every swing.
- Knuckle indicator confirms grip is right at address.
