IOMIC dominates top of leaderboard at Honda LPGA Thailand event

SANTA ANA, Calif. -- IOMIC USA, manufacturer of innovative, revolutionary and dynamically designed grips, announced that the winner of the Honda LPGA Thailand and three other Top-10 finishers used IOMIC grips.

According to Katz Murai, Overseas Division of IOMIC, "Our great feeling, colorful grips have become increasingly popular on the LPGA Tour and it is always exciting to watch so many professionals play well with our grips. The top three finishers were all using different IOMIC grip styles in a variety of bold colors. We congratulate the winner on her first victory of the year."

The winner preferred the stylish look and tacky feel of the Sticky Opus2 blue and white grips. She shot a 12-under 276 to capture a one-shot victory in her first event of the year. She is currently ranked #1 on the LPGA Official Money List and #4 in the Rolex Rankings.

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.

The talented second place finisher used IOMIC Sticky 2.3 lavender grips. This young Thailand native was playing as a sponsored invite at the event. Her impressive overall score of 11-under, 277 included a hole-in-one during her final round.

The T3 finisher used IOMIC Sticky 1.8 emerald green grips on her way to her first Top-10 finish of 2013. The T10 finisher used IOMIC Sticky 2.3 blue grips and midsize sky blue Putter Grip.

IOMIC Sticky grips are incredibly soft, and feature great traction and low torque. These versatile grips are suitable for all playing styles, from beginners to top ranked tour professionals. The Sticky 2.3 is the standard size grip in the Sticky series while the Sticky 1.8 is slightly smaller. Both are available in a wide variety of colors. The IOMIC Putter Grip features an ergonomic design that provides golfers with the feel and control necessary to increase confidence during the putting stroke.

"All of our grips impart a soft and tacky feel which helps golfers consistently control the club better during every shot, whether it's a full swing or a short putt," added Murai. "This is one of the reasons we have a very loyal following of tour players using our grips, with over 150 professionals on the PGA and LPGA Tours combined."

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.
