Lamkin Grips

Lamkin Grips is offering golfers the chance to get their hands on their very own piece of gold this August with the introduction of its Gold Medal Edition Wrap-Tech grip.

Based on the same grip used by Miguel Angel Jimenez on tour, Lamkin Grips says the Gold Medal Edition Wrap-Tech model has been created to help golfers ‘get firmly in the spirit of the games’ and to give  'the best possible performance'.

The winning version of Wrap-Tech features Lamkin Grips’ Double-Helix pattern designed with a smooth spiral for comfort and a high traction spiral for increased control.

The brand’s proprietary metallic compound adds more tackiness and a lighter, softer feel for what it is calling ‘unmatched grip comfort’.

Lamkin's designs will be used in the main event, too. Great Britain’s Justin Rose is one of the brand's ambassadors and he will be putting his REL ACE 3GEN grips into play as he represents Team GB over the Gil Hanse designed layout.

The heritage of Lamkin Grips dates all the way back to 1925, which is still 21 years after Canadian George Lyon won the last Olympic gold medal for golf. That was when company founder Elver B. Lamkin began manufacturing golf’s first leather grips.
