This probably isn’t a useful gadget for experienced golfers, but if you struggle to hit within the red circle at Top Golf, this could be just the thing for you. After my recent dismal attempt at golf, I’m up for anything that lessens the jeers and catcalls I get from the watching five year olds.
The Senso glove is made out of high-quality cabretta leather, and looks rather average (apart from the screen!). Hidden within is a built-in computer that reads your grip pressure. It uses small sensors to measure how tightly you’re holding the club, and will give you audio and visual feedback.
To create a good swing it’s necessary to know how tight your grip should be, but novices often just end up with a death grip, which can cause tight muscles. The glove’s microphone will warn you the moment your grip becomes to tight, and rate it on a scale of one to eighteen. It comes in a variety of sizes, for male and female, and runs on a watch battery. My golfer friend has turned up his nose at this, but I think it would be a great way to get (slightly) better on the course.
