ON THE NUMBER

Glove Story

Sales of every category of golf equipment peak in June, with one exception: gloves. Every golfer's favorite form of blister protection reaches its retail apex in July. The likely explanation? Sweat. The sweltering heat of high summer leads to wet hands and chewed up gloves, which in turn sends many a golfer to the pro shop in search of a replacement. If there's a Gatorade cooler next to the glove rack, so much the better.
