Golf Pride is top grip choice at PGA Tour Barclays Championship

LAURINBURG, N.C. -- Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation announced that the majority of touring professionals who played in the PGA Tour Barclays Championship depended on Golf Pride grips.

Golf Pride grips were used by 25 of the top 30 finishers who played in the Barclays held at the Westchester Country Club in Harrison, New York, August 23 – 26.

“The stakes were high this past weekend as the FedEx Cup got underway, and the majority of top golfers relied on Golf Pride grips,” said Jeff Fiorini, general manager for Eaton’s Golf Grip Division. “No professional players are paid to use or endorse our grips, so they choose Golf Pride based purely on their preference and trust.”

Eaton’s Golf Grip Division is the world’s largest manufacturer of golf grips, with manufacturing, sales and distribution facilities on five continents. The division’s Golf Pride brand is recognized globally as the number one choice in grips among tour and recreational players, competitive amateur golfers, club manufacturers and club repairmen.
