Quicken Loans winner plays Lamkin grips


Lamkin Grips’ new TS1 registers first PGA Tour win as Quicken Loans National Champion records first PGA Tour victory

SAN DIEGO, 02 July 2018 – Lamkin Corporation – the original manufacturer of premium golf grips – would like to congratulate the winner of the Quicken Loans National on his maiden PGA Tour victory this weekend. Just weeks after switching to Lamkin’s new TS1 grips the winner has had a hot streak of form with a win at the European Tour’s flagship BMW PGA Championship, second place in his native Italian Open and now his first PGA Tour win. 

Equipped with the new Lamkin TS1 grips, the long-time Lamkin user played incredible golf throughout the tournament. He recorded a final round 62 to finish with a final score of 21 under par, a full eight shots clear of second place. The winner played with calm authority all week but come the final nine holes he pulled away from the field with a run of eagle, birdie, birdie, birdie, birdie. In the hot and humid Maryland weather he controlled the ball beautifully, with his new TS1 grips delivering a confident, slip free connection to the club despite the challenging conditions. This win now puts the new Champion in a very strong position for the season ending Fed-Ex Cup play offs and the European Ryder Cup team.

The brand new TS1 grips feature Lamkin’s revolutionary GENESIS compound and utilizes FINGERPRINT TECHNOLOGY micro-textures for unmatched feel and responsiveness. A reduced-taper shape reduces excess grip tension for a more fluid swing. The Tour-inspired TS1 is exceptionally durable and maintains a consistent feel in all weather conditions.
