Golf Pride Wins Big at 2017 Solheim Cup

Date: August 22, 2017

SOUTHERN PINES, N.C. … As the U.S. team celebrated their impressive 16.5 - 11.5 victory this past weekend at the 2017 Solheim Cup, Eaton’s Golf Pride Grips team celebrated their big win as well.  The #1 Grip in Golf was trusted at Des Moines Golf & Country Club by 88% of the field, a margin of 21-3 over all other competing brands combined. 


“The Solheim Cup stirs the passions of players, while stoking the competitive fires in a team atmosphere,” said Brandon Sowell, global sales and marketing director for Golf Pride. “It is rewarding to know that when the pressure of a nation or continent falls on these players’ shoulders, overwhelmingly, they trust Golf Pride.  The level of play by both teams was extraordinary and kept viewers entertained all weekend. We congratulate Team USA on a thrilling victory.”


Each week, Golf Pride is the leading grip played from tee-to-green on the LPGA TOUR without any paid endorsements.
