Golf Pride brings it home at US Open

2014 06 Mcc Platinum Scarlett

Martin Kaymer wasn't the only one with something to cheer at this year’s US Open, as American grip manufacturer Golf Pride announced that 83% of players were swinging with its grips.


The news was announced by Power Management company Eaton, which has Golf Pride as a sub division. Eaton calculated that 129 of the 156 players competing in the game’s most demanding major trusted Golf Pride grips, that’s 83% in total.

Golf Pride’s global sales and marketing director, Brandon Sowell, says the numbers validate the grips capabilities.

“The US Open is widely acknowledged as the game’s most complete test of one’s game, so the fact that the best players in the world chose to play our grips without being paid to do so is the ultimate performance validation,” said Sowell.

“When the pressure is on and every shot counts, you need the feel of confidence in your hands, which is why the best players in the world continue to trust their games to Golf Pride.”

Of the last ten US Open champions, eight of them claimed their titles using the company's grips, and the 83% total achieved at the US Open shows a rise of 5% when compared against the figures for the Masters earlier this year.

Golf Pride :: the grips


Pinehurst No. 2 is just a few miles from the brand's world headquarters, and as players battled it out in ‘the toughest test in golf’ the Tour Velvet models were most visible.

In total, 89 golfers in the field used the popular Tour Velvet grips, split between the Tour Velvet Cord, The Tour Velvet and the Tour Velvet Super Tack. In addition to that, 21 players relied on Golf Pride’s popular New Decade MultiCompound grips when trying to tame the challenging Pinehurst No.2.
