Tiger Shark Golf Earns Top 5 Finish at St. Jude Classic
Jumbo putter grips were a dominating force this week at the St. Jude Classic on the PGA Tour, leading two of the Top 5 finishers to their best results of the year.

Every week, more and more players are improving their putting stats by choosing to play lite technology oversized grips designed to take the wrists out of the putting stroke. The 2nd place finisher finished T5 in Putts Per Round with an oversized putting grip, while a former Major winner had three rounds with only 26 putts using a Tiger Shark UltraTac grip. He ranked 17th among all players in Putts Per Round and now ranks 15th on the PGA Tour in total Putts Per Round in 2010.

"Jumbo putter grips have found a home on the PGA Tour and have consistently shown they can help players post lower scores," said Tiger Shark Golf President Dean Dingman. "We expect to have four to five players using our oversized grips this week at the US Open at Pebble Beach."

Putting was a key factor for the 4th place finisher, who earned his best finish on the PGA Tour since 2006. The former Indiana Hoosier earned $246,400 and jumped from 118th to 81st in the FedEx Cup point standings. The player has been a fan of Tiger Shark since 2009, when he put a Great White putter with an UltraTac grip in play, the same combination that led the field in putting at the 2010 Masters.

The UltraTac Jumbo grip, a winner on tour last year at the Byron Nelson Championship, is the original jumbo grip design that forever changed the way golfers started looking at how oversized grips could help their putting. To date Tiger Shark has sold more than 1 million putter grips since they launched this trend setting design. Jumbo putter grip technology enhances a pendulum stroke and they are also proven to reduce grip pressure and keep the putter head square. Other benefits include natural balance and set up, less putter head rotation, accurate smooth putting stroke, improved ball roll and greater distance control.
