SuperStroke grips capture 3 out of 4 top spots at U.S. Open

Merion Golf Club hosted the 2013 US Open in Ardmore, PA. Once play was over on Sunday afternoon, 3 SuperStroke grips were used by players finishing in the top-4.

Earning a T2 at Merion was a 4-time major champion, who also celebrated his 43rd birthday on Sunday. Using his SuperStroke Slim 3.0, the 43-time PGA Tour winner enjoyed success on some of the hardest greens seen on Tour this year. The Slim 3.0 allows players to relax their hands and forearms, further enhancing a pendulum putting motion. This was the Arizona State alumni's 6th runner-up finish in a US Open.

Taking home T4 honors were Jason Dufner and a former Florida Gator. Using a Flatso Mid, Dufner carded a Sunday 67 with 5 birdies to jump 21 spots into 4th place. The former Gator used a Mid Slim 2.0 to earn his best finish in a major. This T4 finish kept the 2013 Zurich Classic champion firmly in the top-5 of the FedEx cup point's race.

The US Open was not the only event that SuperStroke grips found success. Wichita, Kansas hosted the Air Capital Classic and the winner trusted his SuperStroke Tour Proto putter grip on his way to victory. Starting in his 161st event, this win jumped the 48-year-old to 14th on the money list.

"All week long over longer putts I felt like I could make them," he said. "From 20 feet and out I felt like I really had the speed and could really see the line."

In the end, another great week for SuperStroke putter grips, earning $1.7 million in Tour player money.
