In addition to the personal meeting and club tour, the package includes a new set of Callaway golf clubs, new Lamkin golf grips, autographed Arnold Palmer memorabilia and a round of golf at his hometown course.
Beginning March 18, consumers can register in the sweepstakes at MeetArnoldPalmer.com. There are three simple ways to earn entries: 1.) register up to once per day with a valid e-mail address; 2.) complete Lamkin’s interactive grip selector tool; and/or 3.) enter exclusive codes found on the KING FOR A DAY display in the grip section at select golf retailers including Dick’s Sporting Goods, Golf Galaxy, Golfsmith, Edwin Watts and PGA Tour Superstores.

“We are incredibly honored to sponsor this sweepstakes with golf’s most beloved and illustrious legend,” said Lamkin CEO, Bob Lamkin. “Lamkin is extremely proud of our partnership with Arnold Palmer and we’re beyond excited to offer one lucky winner this amazing experience.”
Arnold Palmer has been playing with Lamkin grips for more than 60 years and has been a company spokesman since 1997. “Lamkin grips have been on my clubs throughout my career and carried me through some very memorable moments,” said Palmer. Despite not playing as frequently, he continues to use Lamkin grips and has always been extremely vocal about the importance of the golf grip. “The grip is the only connection a golfer has to their clubs and hitting a golf ball.”
To put the once-in-a-lifetime sweepstakes opportunity into proper perspective, consider the awe-inspiring accomplishments of Arnold Palmer. A winner of seven major championships during his prolific professional career on the PGA Tour which started in 1954, Palmer won four Masters (1958, ’60, ’62 and ’64), back-to-back British Open championships (1961 and ’62), and a U.S. Open title in 1960. Arnold Palmer amassed 92 worldwide championships during his professional career. He is widely considered one of the greatest players and golf ambassadors in the history of the game. His immense contributions, both as a golfer and humanitarian, were recently acknowledged with a Congressional Gold Medal. During the award ceremony, Congressional House Speaker John Boehner called Arnold Palmer a “model of integrity, passion and commitment.”
In addition to the grand prize, Lamkin is offering up dozens of first and second-place prizes that will include Arnold Palmer autographed memorabilia, a golf shopping spree at Dick’s Sporting Goods, EA SPORTS Tiger Woods PGA TOUR® 14 videogames, Arnold Palmer Half & Half drinks from Arizona Beverage Company and, of course, Lamkin golf grips.

SAN DIEGO, February 26, 2013 -- -- Lamkin Corporation, a leading manufacturer of premium golf grips, is excited to officially introduce the newest addition to their portfolio of performance-enhancing grips. Co-developed by Lamkin and Japan-based grip manufacturer IOMIC, the new i-LINE series combines the low-torque and tacky feel of a thermoplastic elastomer with the proven performance benefits of the high-traction Crossline surface texture. This innovative fusion of technology delivers a grip that is both incredibly secure and exceedingly comfortable.
“Golfers typically select a grip that offers either a comfortable ‘feel’ or a grip designed for high performance playability,” explains Lamkin President and CEO, Bob Lamkin. “Our goal when developing the new i-LINE grip was to eliminate the age-old compromise between feel and performance, and provide golfers with an extremely comfortable, high-performance grip.”
The new i-LINE grip series is made with a tacky and soft-feeling thermoplastic material that provides exceptional torsion-control to suppress harmful grip twisting at impact. The grip’s distinctive Crossline surface pattern offers a high-traction texture that promotes additional gripping control and stability. By establishing a secure connection between the grip and the club, players are able to hit more accurate and consistent shots. With the new i-LINE series, golfers at every level can enjoy the benefits of a high performance golf grip without sacrificing a relaxed, comfortable feel.
Lamkin’s new i-LINE grips are offered in a broad color palette, including several vibrant neon options. The standard size grip (SRP $9.99) is available in traditional black with a gray cap, navy blue with a turquoise-blue cap, yellow with a lime green cap, turquoise blue with a navy blue cap and lime green with a yellow cap. The undersize model is offered in traditional black with a gray cap and magenta with a white cap.

At Demo Day, visitors will also have the opportunity to try the much-anticipated new i-LINE series of golf grips.

The new ACE (Advanced Cohesive Elastomer) technology was developed by Lamkin chemists to combine the shock-absorbing properties of the patented 3GEN material with a tackier and slightly softer feeling golf grip. The proprietary super-tacky compound is available exclusively in the new Perma-Wrap ACE 3GEN and Crossline ACE 3GEN line of grips. Combined with its unique unbuffed surface and simulated-wrap texture, the technology in the new Perma-Wrap ACE 3GEN grip delivers unparalleled surface tackiness to create a more confident connection between the golfer’s hands and their clubs. The Crossline ACE 3GEN provides golfers with the unique blend of a softer, super-tacky material and a distinctive high-traction surface texture for the ultimate in gripping stability and wet-weather performance.
The expansion of the R.E.L. 3GEN line will include a neon pink option in a standard size model, as well as a red, blue, orange, gray and electric blue option in both the midsize and oversize models. Golfers who play with non-standard size grips will certainly celebrate the addition of more color options in such a popular golf grip. The R.E.L. 3GEN grip has already earned rave reviews from golfers for its amazing feel, tackiness and durability. The expansion of R.E.L. 3GEN line will undoubtedly lead to even more glowing reviews from golfers around the world.
