Many golfers wear a glove on their top hand (left hand for right handed golfers and vice versa).

This gives a firmer grip especially when it's wet.

The glove is made of leather to ensure a perfect fit and mimimal loss of 'feel' between the palm and the club grip.

It should be stretched taut over your hand and fingers, not loose like a normal glove.
