October 19, 2010

The 38th ranked golfer in the world finished T2nd at the Open Sunday using a SuperStroke Slim putter grip.

Since putting the jumbo sized grip on his putter, the 35-year-old has turned in a T6th place and T2nd place finish in his last two events. He finished the season with his 8th Top 10 of 2010, the most in his career. The Richmond, Indiana native ranked 22nd in Putts Per GIR with the Slim grip at the San Martin, CA event.

SuperStroke, a division of Tiger Shark Golf, had 6 putter grips in play at the Open, easily making them the #1 most played jumbo putter grip at the event. This year, SuperStroke and Tiger Shark Golf have combined to be the #1 jumbo putter grips at every PGA Tour event, including The Masters, the U.S. Open, the Open Championship and the PGA Championship.

This year on the PGA, Champions, Nationwide, LPGA and Asian tours, SuperStroke and Tiger Shark putter grips have now been a part of 2 victories, 23 Top 10 finishes and 38 Top 25 finishes. Over 80 PGA Tour professionals have now put SuperStroke technology into play on the PGA, Champions, Nationwide and LPGA tours.

SuperStroke and Tiger Shark has been at the forefront of the rapidly growing jumbo putter grip market. Oversized putter grips reduce wrist breaks and enhance a pendulum stroke, and they are also proven to reduce grip pressure and keep the putter head square. Extensive testing has shown that the SuperStroke requires up to 32% less grip tension and represents a significant improvement over conventional putter grips. Other benefits include natural balance and set up, less putter head rotation, accurate smooth putting stroke, improved ball roll and greater distance control.

"Most golf instructors stress the importance of keeping grip tension to a minimum while putting," said Tiger Shark President Dean Dingman. "Keeping the wrists from hinging is paramount to improving on the greens and the SuperStroke design has proven to be the most effective for promoting a smooth, fluid, and tension free motion."
