Okay...I thought maybe you had to be a student at The Citadel or VMI to wear them...Naw, just kidding. I just didn't know and I am trying to buy golf gloves on-line..Thanks for the quick replies fellas.

Is there an anti-cadet?  I have long thin hands, and large gloves fit my fingers but only strap on loosely.

Cadet just sounds better than "Husky."  Men's Cadet M for me.

Cadet medium is actually the MOST POPULAR size.  I don't have particularly small hands, but its the size I wear.  The tighter the glove, the longer they will last.  If you wear out your palm or index finger quickly, you are wearing the wrong size.  I bet it takes me 25+ rounds to go thru a glove!

The wear on your glove can tell alot about the sizing but also about your grip.  For example, if you are wearing the glove on the heel portion you are probably regripping at the top and there is friction in that area causing the excess wear.

Be aware that all gloves fit differently even if they are the same size.  I get FJ Sta-soft gloves by the box - a dozen to the box.  There will be 6 or 7 out of a box that fit perfectly.  The others will be either too loose or too tight.  Thank God I have a pro who lets me swap these out for good fitting gloves.
