Golf Pride was the leading grip brand in play at the 2020 PGA Championship, with 86% of the field using the brand’s grips.

Nine players who finished in the top 10 and ties, including the champion, had a Golf Pride grip in play at TPC Harding Park. The winner, Collin Morikawa, used Golf Pride’s corded ZGRIP en route to capturing his breakthrough career major. In addition to tour professionals, 17 out of the 20 PGA Professionals who qualified to compete in the championship also used Golf Pride grips. 

Golf Pride grips have been the choice for winners of the last five majors dating back to the 2019 Masters. Validating the breadth of the portfolio, Golf Pride had five different performance technology models in play among the top 13 finishers – ZGRIP Cord, Tour Velvet Cord, Tour Velvet, MCC and Tour Wrap 2G.

“As the kick-off event in a run of seven Majors scheduled over the next 12 months, we are thrilled to pick up where we left off and start this unique championship run with an exciting victory,” Brandon Sowell, Global Director of Sales and Marketing for Golf Pride. 

“We are honoured that Golf Pride is trusted by so many of the world’s most discerning golfers and that we continue to play a role in the game’s biggest moments as a result.”

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, without any paid endorsements.
