Dawgs Golf debuts world's lightest grip at PGA MerchandiseShow

LAS VEGAS -- Dawgs Golf, maker of a superior line of advanced-technology super-lightweight golf footwear, will introduce the world's lightest golf grip in booth #2063 at the PGA Merchandise Show Jan. 26-29 in Orlando, Fla. This revolutionary golf grip, manufactured and distributed by Dawgs Golf and invented in conjunction with golf professional Greg Stafford, overcame scientific hurdles to become the lightest golf grip on the market today.

"The grip is an important step in the evolution of playable lightweight golf technology," said Stafford. "Just as titanium clubheads have replaced stainless-steel clubheads, and graphite shafts are replacing stainless-steel shafts, closed-cell resin EVA grips could replace existing grip technologies. Dawgs Golf is at the forefront of closed-cell resin EVA technology."

Dawgs Golf, a recognized developer and manufacturer of footwear since 2005, now also brings its expertise and manufacturing experience to the "Extreme Lite" golf-grip series. Made from similar blends of proprietary Dawgs Golf super-lightweight, closed-cell resin EVA and rubber that Dawgs Golf utilizes in its footwear, the Dawgs Golf "Extreme-Lite" grip series (patent pending) offers exceptional qualities not available in the average golf grip. Ranging in weight from 12 grams to 18 grams, "Extreme-Lite" grips are a fraction of the weight of average golf grips. Due to its lightweight and softer-feeling material, the "Extreme-Lite" grip encourages a golfer to apply less tension to the grip and proceed with a more relaxed swing, producing better results.

The Dawgs Golf "Extreme-Lite" grip series includes the Extreme-Lite, the Extreme-Lite Pro, the Extreme-Lite Tour, the Extreme-Lite Pistol putter grip and the Extreme-Lite Paddle putter grip. Available for every club in the bag, the Extreme-Lite series is offered in multiple sizes to fit every golfer's playability requirements.

Dawgs Golf, home to the world's lightest golf shoe, has enjoyed considerable acclaim from the golfing world for its advancements in golf-shoe designs, including its latest model, the Crossover. Dawgs also offers a full line of summer sandals and casual footwear, as well as a full line of winter boots and winter accessories.

Greg Stafford is a genetic engineer, golf professional, recognized long-drive specialist and record holder. After graduating from UCLA, he received advanced degrees from New York Medical College, and has spent most of the last ten years studying and teaching driving distance and the biomechanics and physics of the golf swing. Stafford will be on hand at the PGA Merchandise Show as Dawgs Golf launches its "Extreme-Lite" grips series.
