IOMIC congratulates Karrie Webb on her 39th LPGA career victory

SANTA ANA, Calif. -- IOMIC USA, manufacturer of innovative, revolutionary and dynamically designed grips, congratulates Hall of Famer and IOMIC pro staff member, Karrie Webb on her victory at the ShopRite LPGA Classic Presented by Acer.

"This win puts Karrie at #11 on the LPGA's all-time list in career victories and we are proud to have her on the IOMIC pro staff team," said Katz Murai, Overseas Division of IOMIC. "We are pleased that she continues to rely on her IOMIC grips to maintain control and feel in all types of playing conditions."

Webb started the day five shots behind the second-round leader and fired a 3-under 68 in blustery playing conditions to capture her 39th career LPGA Tour victory and first win since 2011. Steady winds near 20 mph with gusts even greater made it a very tough day for all of the competitors. Webb was one of three players who received low-round honors with a 68. She uses her brightly colored yellow and green Sticky 2.3 grips that honor her home country of Australia.

Webb's custom IOMIC Sticky 2.3 Grips are available to the consumer in eight attractive colors including; autumn blue, moss green, orange, coral red, blue, white and black. 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.

"In addition to Karrie's LPGA Victory, IOMIC grips were also used by the winners of the PGA Memorial Tournament, Japan Golf Tour Diamond Cup and Japan LPGA Resort Trust Ladies. These successes continue to highlight the performance benefits realized by professionals using IOMIC grips on a regular basis," 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.
