Before the first shot was struck at the 2014 Ryder Cup Matches, Power management company Eaton announced that its Golf Pride Grips Division was already the clear winner. In fact, Golf Pride was the grip of choice by a margin of 21-3 (88%) over all other competing brands combined.
Of the 21 players relying on Golf Pride grips during golf’s most esteemed team event, 13 will trust their games to the Tour Velvet family. The second most popular Golf Pride grip family represented at the Ryder Cup is the New Decade MultiCompound, with a total of 5 players using it to negotiate the forecasted challenging weather this weekend in Scotland. In addition to the full swing grip counts, Golf Pride is also the leading putter grip manufacturer in players’ bags at Gleneagles this week.
“Arguably, the Ryder Cup is the most exciting event in golf,” said Brandon Sowell, global sales and marketing director for Golf Pride. “Because of the international pride on the line, many players consider their performance in the Ryder Cup as defining moments of their career. We are pleased to know that when the pressure of a nation or a continent falls on these players’ shoulders, overwhelmingly, they choose Golf Pride.”
