Golfers can back a winner with MacWet gloves

The technology used by MacWet® Golf Gloves has scored a memorable hat-trick - by recording a third consecutive win in the Grand National.

The outstanding wet weather performance provided by the gloves, which have become one of the most successful products to be distributed in the UK by leading golf apparel brand Glenmuir, helped jockey Liam Treadwell to ride 100-1 outsider Mon Mome to victory at Aintree.

This followed success for MacWet® last year with Timmy Murphy on Comply Or Die and 2007 winner, Robbie Power on Silver Birch.

Around 90% of the Grand National jockeys wore MacWet® gloves for this year's race, underlining the product's global reputation for giving 100% grip in wet conditions in a number of sports - including golf.

Glenmuir Marketing Director, Andy Bough said "We are delighted that MacWet® gloves featured so prominently in one of the world's great sporting events.

"Grand National jockeys have to place the ultimate faith in their equipment, so to have almost nine out of 10 riders using the products in the race speaks volumes for their quality and performance.

"MacWet Golf Gloves use the same technology as their equestrian counterparts, so for golfers seeking the ultimate all-weather grip - even in hot weather when hands sweat - MacWet® clearly leads the way."

MacWet® gloves provide a skin-tight fit giving full dexterity and sensitivity, so the wearer doesn't feel as if they are wearing gloves.

Man-made fibres used in the manufacturing have natural 'wicking' properties which allows water to be readily transported along, around and over the gloves` surfaces to the fabric face, where it quickly evaporates, thus providing the ultimate in comfort and gripping power.

The gloves permit the hand to breathe, ensuring consistent maximum grip with absolutely no compromise to feel or comfort and outperform leather gloves, which induce perspiration and consequently compromise grip and performance.

To demonstrate just how effective the gloves are Glenmuir has produced a seven-minute long video featuring leading golf professionals which can be viewed on its own website, www.glenmuir.com .
