Golf Pride grips the US PGA Championship

Golf Pride Grips were the leading grip of choice by players at the 2014 US PGA Championship in Louisville, Kentucky. Almost 80 percent of the 156 players competing in the season’s final major trusted their games to Golf Pride grips.

Of the 124 playing Golf Pride, 26 players relied on the brand’s popular New Decade MultiCompound grips, with advanced moisture management and hybrid cord/rubber grip technologies, in trying to negotiate the rain-soaked Valhalla Golf Club. Half of all Golf Pride Grip users in the field Golf Pride’s Cord technology to help provide them better control in the wet and damp conditions, including seven of the top ten finishers.    

Brandon Sowell, global sales and marketing director for Golf Pride, “The constant rain combined with a tremendous test of golf provided by the Valhalla Golf Club, made for what was probably the most exciting major of the year. We’re pleased that when the biggest prizes in golf are on the line, players continue to trust their championship quests to Golf Pride, and over and over again that trust is rewarded with success.”
