You can buy different gloves but it is really a grip issue. I used to do the same and with some grip work gloves last 10 x longer

I went through a ton of gloves before I revaluated my grip. Made a change and a glove lasts me a long time. Range sessions eat up gloves so I milk and repair gloces as long as I can for range gloves.

Mainstream:  Bionic Glove.  Really good, but pricy.

If you want to go a little off the wall, try to find gloves made with kangaroo leather.  They'll last forever.  You'll lose them before you wear them out.

They who are enamoured of practice
without knowledge are like the mariner
going to sea without a rudder or compass
and who navigates without a course.

As another poster alluded to, a proper grip will go a long way in keeping gloves intact.  Personally, I was shredding gloves up when I first got back into the game after a long absence, and it turned out to be the result of gripping the club too much in my palm (I'm RH), and not enough in the fingers.  Made the switch and have seen a difference in glove life.

That said, I've found the Titleist Perma Soft to be a great combination of feel and durability.  The Players glove is great for feel but seems to wear very quickly, even with a sound grip.  At least for me.

Hirzl gloves are the best. Long lasting and great grip in hot humid conditions.

Without any doubt , none whatsoever, the Bionic glove is a formidable contender.

I use them as I've arthritic fingers and the padded grip is superb.
I play 4 times a week, every week and I rotate the 3 gloves I have. I'm now around 20 months in and all 3 gloves are fine...no holes, no shine, all seams intact.
I bought mine on Amazon at 15 for one.

By now I would have gone through at least 20 pairs of normal, thin 12 gloves  

Don't delay, buy today.

I can get a whole year out of a Bionic playing a couple of times a week. The occasional wash helps

I go to the range 1-2 times a week and use the FJ Weathersof for the range (durability & has palm pad - 2 of them and rotate) and the Taylormade Tour glove for out on the course (two of these which I rotate).  All are still in great shape after 6 months.

Ive used this glove for the last handful of rounds and really like it. Very hard wearing. Japanese. You can buy them in the US too. Called a Fit39 EX. Im very impressed, washable too and no signs of wear as yet.

This is super weird but try the Black FJ Stasoft if your looking for leather that will hold up a little longer.  Feels the same as the white, they have been lasting 3x longer though.  My guess is whatever they did to color the glove made it hold up better.  Sounds weird but Ive tried 3 now with the same results.

I've tried a few different gloves and keep going back to the taylormade "Stratus Tech", previously called their "all weather" glove. For me they are the best I have found for the price.
