I think the phrase, fits like a glove implies tight.

As long as buy good gloves, tight is comfortable and doesn't bunch up when gripping the club.

Definitely like gloves tight. Sucks in the warm weather to get it off and on, but beats getting wicked blisters.

I perfer a glove that is a tight fit and I normally buy a large.  I absolutely cannot stand a loose-fitting glove.

How can you wear a larger glove? You don´t grip the club well! I buy a smaller glove so that after a couple of round it becomes perfect

should be pretty tight.  If it gets loose it could cause cface to rotate ever so slightly.

Tight, absolutely. Loose is bad, and a glove with fingers that are too long is worse

If going to go with loose fit, might as well just go Freddie style.  I did after not putting new glove in bag a few weeks ago, didn't really miss it, I use NDMC and Crossline on wedge.

Glove should fit just nice. I stretch out my hands and wear the glove. Then close into a fist and make sure it is a nice fit

Tight Fit with Cadet ML.  I also like to fold the excess leather (from my wrist down towards palm) below the velcro.  Anyone know if they make any gloves that dont have the extra 3/4" or so of extra leather below the velcro?

Men's small, I could probably use even smaller ones but I have long fingers. I once bought a medium-sized glove to try it out but I ditched it after a couple of swings at the range. I simply had no confidence hitting with too big a glove as I felt like it was moving about.

I wonder if some large ladies' gloves might suit me better.
