The Story Behind A Cool Golf Glove Design, Part 1
What do skulls, donuts, poker chips or boomboxes have to do with golf? Absolutely nothing. But when applied to a cool golf glove, they start to tell a story. And that's what we're trying to do here. Every golfer is a unique character. No one swing is the same, no style is the same and everyone has their own quirks on the course.
We wanted to celebrate this by applying unique and distinct designs to our golf gloves, while still retaining the highest levels of performance and quality you should expect. So, starting with four of our eight designs, we give a brief background of where the inspiration came from.
One of the reasons we were so encapsulated by Tiger was his ability to win when coming from behind on a Sunday. How often did we look at a leaderboard on Saturday night, see Tiger’s name within 2-3 shots of the lead and think “he’s right where he wants to be”. What must have been going through the heads of those ahead of him? Tiger had a killer instinct, and we wanted to create a glove that reflected the bodies he left behind.
The Day of the Dead celebrates those who have passed. We wanted to celebrate the man who killed off so many golfers’ major dreams. It’s a cool golf glove only to be worn by those who have that inherent ability to kill off the competition by any means necessary. Wear it with respect for the GOAT.

Golf is more exciting when there’s something on the line. Every shot, every hole matters when there’s money at stake. Who isn’t confident in their own ability to make that one shot that everyone doubts them on? The thing about golf and money games is that it can bring out the best (and worst) in everyone.
The regular poker player, the casino goer, the sportsbook king or even the non-gambler of the group – when your ability is called into question and everything is in your hands, you’re taking that person on.
Casino Royale is a golf glove designed for those with a cool head, for those who like to challenge people, those who raise the stakes of an ordinary Sunday game and make it into something extremely competitive. Check out the totally unique Casino Royale golf glove.
Golf is a simple game, or at least it should be. Some people make it look incredibly easy – they can hit it straight, hit it straight again, get up and down for par and move on to the next hole. These are the easy-going, cool type that we all want to emulate. So, how did we arrive at donuts for this golf glove?
“Iced Out” captures the chill nature of these players. They rock up to the tee with a donut and coffee in hand, while we’ve all been in the nets trying to desperately find our game before we start. The yellow brings out their bright, care-free game that we can only dream of finding. The cool Iced Out glove.
We love music and we love buggies. We also wanted to have a retro-styled golf glove that celebrates the unique, old-school player in the group. The boomboxes are an ode to the way we listened to music back in the day while the buggy is the ultimate automobile. We like driving these more than we do our own cars.
This player doesn’t get too worked up about their score. They’re just out to have fun, enjoy the music and enjoy their golf, which usually results in a better round than their stressed-out partners. We need more of these people in our lives – to make the game better fun, to take the seriousness out of it, to trivialise dress-codes and wear something different.
