IOMIC with three top-10 finishes at ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open

SANTA ANA, Calif. -- IOMIC USA, manufacturer of innovative, revolutionary and dynamically designed grips, announced today that three players used an IOMIC Grip to clinch a Top-10 finish at the ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open.

"Three Top-10 finishes on such a spectacular stage like the Australian Open is remarkable. In addition, our grip count within the field was one of our best events to date. The players really like the traction and low torque of our grips as well as the bright and bold colors," stated Katz Murai, Overseas Division of IOMIC.

One of the youngest players to lock in a Top-10 finish at the Australian Open loves the fresh and bold colors from the Art Grips Series. She plays both the Stickey Opus 2 Grip and the X-Grip Opus 1 Grip. Both of these grips fuse two colors to create an IOMIC signature look.

IOMIC Art Grip Sticky Opus grips are manufactured using IOMIC's special marble coloring process to create a stylish, fresh new look. Sticky grips are incredibly soft, and feature great traction and low torque. These grips are available in a wide variety of colors and are suitable for all playing styles, from beginners to top ranked tour professionals.

A 12-Under 280, tie for sixth place and an impressive low round in the sixties were all attained at the Australian Open with the help of an IOMIC putter grip.
"We have a large following of PGA and LPGA professionals playing our putter grip. Putting is all about 'feel' and our grips feel like no other on the market due to our proprietary IOMAX material. It provides a supple and soft feel which enhances comfort to the hand which translates to confidence," added Murai.

All IOMIC grips feature the revolutionary "IOMAX" technology, a proprietary compound that provides a soft feel with control. This material provides adhesiveness, is water and friction resistant and is naturally white in color which allows for a full spectrum of color - IOMIC's signature trait.

"IOMIC was also credited with a tie for eighth place. This steady, consistent, and veteran professional played the Stickey 2.3 Grip in her home country's colors of blue and white. She shot two really great rounds in the sixties. Congratulations to her for another impressive top finish," added Murai.

IOMIC USA manufactures premium, ergonomically designed golf grips that focus on technology. The company uses a revolutionary material called "IOMAX", which enhances grip feel, reduces torque and allows for a variety of color choices. The ergonomic design of IOMIC grips, combined with a super soft touch and feel, ensure maximum feedback and control for golfers. The launch of the Color Grip Series helped the company gain attention in the industry for the wide variety of colors offered. This led to the development of the Art Grip Series, the industry's first ever marbled grip. IOMIC grips are in the bags of many top professional and amateur golfers worldwide.
