CLEVELAND … Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation today announced that, according to the authoritative Darrell Survey, the majority of professionals who played in the Frys.com Open depended on Golf Pride® grips.
The survey revealed that 117 out of 132 players in the field (89 percent) used Golf Pride grips on the majority of clubs in their bag. The survey also revealed that 69 players used the popular Golf Pride Tour Velvet®, 17 players chose the colorful, high-performance New Decade™ MultiCompound and a number of players competed with the updated Tour Velvet Cord grip featuring Golf Pride’s exclusive new Brushed Cotton Technology (BCT), which is currently only available to Tour professionals.
