Footjoy makes them in mid sizes such as Med-Large, etc. Also did not know if you were aware but all make them in reg and Cadet, Cadet being for smaller fingers.I wish I could find gloves that fit properly. Large, medium, and small don't fit all.
I am somewhat of an oddity in that I wear a glove on both hands for all full swing shots. My reason is the arthritis in my hands and wearing the gloves helps minimize the transmission of vibration into my hands. I also have graphite shafts for the same reason. I do remove both gloves at the point when I need to chip and putt because it feels more in control. Removing the gloves frequently therefore also exposes both of my hands to the sun equally, and that minimizes the 'white-hand' issue. I also apply sunscreen to both arms before playing in our Houston sun, so over time the hands look about the same as the arms. It is rather cumbersome to remove two gloves before chipping and then put them back on at the next hole, but my arthritis demands it. Btw, my oversized grips (newly installed this spring) have reduced the arthritis soreness considerably. You gotta do what you gotta do....
Some guy told me that if you don't wear a glove, you are holding your club too tight.
I only use a glove if it's rained and my hands and grips are wet.
Does your club fly out of your hand if you don't have a glove on?
I think it's personal preference, but I know my college coach hated that I didn't wear one. I use an interlock grip and I can promise you I have actually tried to throw my club by getting my grip too loose....couldn't do it.
Not sure if this would help or were aware, but the "Bionic Glove" was designed by a hand surgeon and was found to be beneficial for people with Arthritis. While in general it is not confirming to the USGA for improving the grip, they did sanction it for players with Arthritis.
They originally just had one model, but they now have several. The Silver Series specifically designed for players with Arthritis, and come in a pair.
Bionic Gloves | Men's Silver Series Golf Gloves
They sell these in many golf and sporting good stores as well, so you could try them on and see. Never personally used one, but have heard good things. May help???
