Even before team USA’s 19-11 victory at the 2017 Presidents Cup last weekend, Eaton’s Golf Pride Grips already knew it was a champion. The “#1 Grip in Golf” was trusted at Liberty National Golf Club 88% of the field, with 21 of 24 players choosing to use Golf Pride grips at the competition.
Golf Pride’s Tour Velvet family were the most popular swing grips in play with 10 players relying on the smooth, reliable performance that has made them the leading grip model on the PGA TOUR. In addition, 9 players at the 2017 Presidents Cup also chose putter grips made by Golf Pride, including two who used Golf Pride’s new TOUR SNSR models. No other brand had more grips in play at this year’s matches.
“As this year’s Tour season comes to a close with the Presidents Cup, we are honored that nearly every player relied on Golf Pride to win this coveted event,” said Brandon Sowell, global sales and marketing director for Golf Pride. “We love knowing that as players represent our nation, or the rest of the world, that they overwhelmingly choose Golf Pride.”
Each week, Golf Pride is the leading grip played from tee-to-green on the PGA TOUR with an average of 80% of pros choosing Golf Pride swing grips in each event; this accomplished without any paid endorsements.
