FootJoy created its new GTxtreme golf glove to help golfers maximize grip and durability in all conditions of play.

Bubba Watson debuted the new GTxtreme at the British Open and has worn it every round since then.

"Once I put the GTxtreme glove in play, everything about it was great," said Watson. "It gives me more control to perform at my best."

The GTxtreme uses proprietary digital Advance Performance Digital (APL) leather technology combined with a digital FiberSof material that results in a glove that FootJoy calls "the ultimate in grip and durability performance." The soft FiberSof material along the back of the glove along with the PowerNet mesh and Power-Locking closure promotes a consistent fit, enhances comfort and creates an optimal fit.

"GTxtreme provides the best of all worlds; exceptional grip performance in all-conditions, maximum durability, comfort, superb flexibility and breathability with a precision fit," said Maria Bonzagni, Senior Director of Worldwide Marketing for FootJoy Golf Gloves and Accessories. "Together with a new high-impact package, prominent in-store display, creative interactive campaign and heavy print support featuring Bubba Watson, the new GTxtreme glove is sure to be a major hit."

The gloves are available in men’s regular left- and right-hand models as well as a left-hand cadet model, and come with a QMark magnetic ball marker. They carry a suggested retail price of $15 per glove.
