Scotland-based golf manufacturer John Letters has unveiled the pioneering new TR47 Premium Combination glove – the World’s FIRST golf glove with 360 degree ‘contour adaptability’.

The glove, which joins the TR47 irons, hybrids and driver in John Letters’ stable, offers unparalleled fit and feel thanks to its unique Lycra composition, which places high-quality Lycra along the natural contours of the hand.

That means that across key areas of natural pressure and stress – each of the golfers’ four fingers, thumb, palm and knuckles – the TR47 is flexible enough to offer to respond to every golfers swing, and offer unrivalled comfort each and every round.

In addition to the Lycra technology, the TR47 Premium Combination glove uses the finest Cabretta Leather across the entire palm, fingers and thumb to give additional wearability and performance where it is needed most.

Finally, an elasticated wrist area and perforated finger holes provide further breathability and increased comfort.

A spokesman for John Letters said: “We are incredibly excited to unveil the new TR47 glove to the UK’s golfers. This glove is something we have worked on for around two years.

“Thanks to an eye-catching design – complete with bright-blue details and a high-quality, fully adjustable Velcro closure tab – the TR47 Premier Combination glove is sure to be a huge hit with golfers of all abilities.

“To master this new innovation, we have invested two years of product design and development and we’re absolutely delighted with the results.

“While most of the gloves on the market have Lycra on the back, predominantly across the knuckles – we have taken things a step further.

“As the first glove manufacturer to put Lycra around the ‘core’ of the glove – the full 360 degrees of a golfers’ hand – we are confident we’ve created a product that golfers of all abilities will love.

”And with a recommended retail price of just £7.99, the TR47 is also one of the best-value leather palm gloves available on the market.”

The glove will be available to purchase from 15th September.
