Golf Pride Launches Pro Only Series

We know, it sounds kind of bold, but Golf Pride just introduced the curiously named Pro Only Series putter grips, which boast a Tour preferred shape for delivering the ultimate levels of feel and precision. It’s worth mentioning that Golf Pride® Grips division is the number one grip on the PGA Tour, and their new PRO ONLY™ putter grip series are available in 3 different Tour shapes. The new models were crafted following direct feedback from players who tested the prototypes in real life scenarios, i.e. they’re designed with Tour pros in mind for delivering amazing feel and the highest degree of responsiveness possible.

The improved feedback of the new Pro Only grips is due to using a proprietary technology, i.e. a modified rubber compound, which offers more precision feel for improved distance control on greens. Each model comes with its own color and unique shape, and, to make a long story short, here are the specs:

Here’s Golf Pride Product Manager Bruce Miller:

“Many people find it surprising that 70% of the Top 30 putters on Tour prefer a smaller size putter grip. They prefer it because it allows them to gain greater feel, feedback and control. The PRO ONLY models deliver those Tour-preferred shapes with three uniquely optimized performance options. The new PRO ONLY putter-grip series enhances those marksman preferences with our new age materials, providing preferred shapes that have been trusted to win countless major championships.”

The new putter grips from Golf Pride are already available at retail and they’re priced at $12.99 MSRP (each).
