SOUTHERN PINES, N.C. … Eaton announced today that its Golf Pride Grips Division was the most used grip brand at both the 2017 NCAA Men’s and Women’s Division I Championships. By the numbers, 150 of 156 players (96%) competing in this year’s NCAA Men’s Golf Championship at Rich Harvest Farms trusted their games to Golf Pride swing grips, a level of usage greater than any other equipment brand in golf. Of those 150 players using Golf Pride, 64 relied on Golf Pride’s MCC model grips.
At the 2017 NCAA Women’s Division I Golf Championship, 87% of the field chose Golf Pride, with 59 players in total using the brand’s popular MCC model grips.
