SANTA ANA, Calif. -- IOMIC USA, manufacturer of innovative, revolutionary and dynamically designed grips, announced that IOMIC grips were used by the winners of the LPGA KEB HanaBank Championship, Japan LPGA Fujitsu Ladies, and Japan LPGA Stanley Ladies Golf Tournament. IOMIC grips have now been played by the winners of 45 worldwide tour events in 2013.
"This has been an exciting year for IOMIC on all the worldwide tours," stated Katz Murai, General Manager, IOMIC USA. "It has been great to see so many winning professionals use our grips. Professionals as well as amateurs benefit from our revolutionary grip technology which gives them great feel and control. The ability to choose different grip colors is also an added benefit. The winners of each of these recent tournaments used a variety of grip styles and colors. We congratulate all of them on their victories."
The winner of the LPGA KEB•HanaBank Championship birdied the first playoff hole to claim her victory. She shot a 9-under par 207 to become the fourth Rolex First-Time Winner this season. She used IOMIC Sky Blue X-Grips. A T8 finisher also used an IOMIC Lavender Absolute X Putter grip.
The winner of the Fujitsu Ladies scored 5 birdies in 6 holes on Saturday to win by one shot in the rain-shortened event. It is her 2nd victory in the last several weeks and it moved her to #10 on the JLPGA money list. She used IOMIC Yellow Sticky 1.8 grips.
The winner of the 2013 Stanley Ladies Golf Tournemant shot a final round 6-under par 66 to claim her victory. Her win puts her at #17 on the JLPGA money list. The top 50 on the list will keep their tour cards for 2014. She used an IOMIC pink Putter Grip.
The X-Grip is IOMIC's first grip offering. This original standard size grip has a unique pattern of crosses and diamonds which helps golfers grip the club with the perfect amount of pressure. It prevents the grip from twisting at a high swing speed and gives players superior contact and a firm feeling.
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.
The IOMIC Putter Grip features an ergonomic design that provides the feel and control necessary to inspire confidence during every putting stroke. It is available in standard, mid-size and large with nine bold colors to choose from.
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.
