Lamkin makes winner’s circle in Texas


SAN DIEGO, 23 April 2018 – Lamkin Corporation – the original manufacturer of premium golf grips – would like to congratulate the winner of the Valero Texas Open this weekend after he carded a 4 under par final round to take his first career PGA Tour title.

Equipped with Lamkin’s iconic Crossline Full Cord EPDM .58 round grips, the winner held his nerve to record his 4th sub 70 round of the week. Going into the final day, in the final pairing, the winner carded three straight birdies on the first three holes and never looked back despite a strong challenge mid round.

The Crossline Full Cord as used by the winner combines Lamkin’s iconic Crossline pattern with full cord coverage to deliver maximum control and shot feedback. Lamkin’s Crossline pattern, which has delivered over $200,000,000 in Tour earnings, features a distinctive, densely spaced pattern that promotes light grip tension and provides superior lateral traction. Lamkin’s proprietary rubber compound adds tackiness and durability, while the grip’s firmness delivers excellent torsion control. 

With his first Tour win in his home state, the Valero Texas Open Champion joins a long list of the world’s best golfers who have topped the leaderboard on Sunday evening after choosing Lamkin to help get the best from their game.
