Bionic Golf Glove Mini Review
Teacher’s Comments: Useful for protecting an injured hand.
The Bionic Golf glove was the subject of some controversy a couple of years ago when the USGA judged them unfit. After a couple of rounds of suits and countersuits, the USGA approved the glove under certain conditions.
Last week, as I was packing things up in my classroom, I managed to bruise my right hand pretty badly. It’s so bad, in fact, that every shot has become painful.
I could stop playing for a while to give it a chance to heal—and indeed, that’s what Mrs. GolfBlogger, the nurse, recommended. But that wold mean giving up a week of an already short Michigan golf season.
So I stopped by my local pro shop and got a right hand Bionic glove. And I’ve been very pleased with the product.
Designed by an orthopedic hand surgeon, the Bionic Glove has twelve pads on the palm and fingers designed to offer relief to painful hands. The pre-curved fit allows a player to grip the club more lightly, while still maintaining control. Lycra inserts across the knuckles keep the glove flexible.
The glove works as advertised. The padding has protected the bruises and allowed me to play without further pain or injury. Because I don’t actually have arthritic hands, I can’t attest to the Bionic Glove’s effectiveness in that respect. But I imagine that it would work very well.
