Congratulations to the winner of the 2014 Russian Open on his exciting European Tour win. Equipped with Lamkin UTx grips on all of his clubs, the winner produced an incredible final round finish, edging out a fellow Lamkin user in the play-off.

Two layers of different firmness ACE 3GEN material and a moisture wicking fabric weave combine to deliver an incredibly secure, tacky connection to the club that provides superior traction in all weathers. The Perma-Wrap ACE 3GEN grip, as used by the runner up is a simulated leather wrap design with a minimal surface pattern.

Another Win for Justin Rose and Lamkin Grips

Congratulations to Justin Rose on his win at the Scottish Open.  With REL ACE grips on all his swinging clubs and a new Deep Etched Paddle grip on his putter, long-time Lamkin Grips user Rose produced a flawless final round.

With his second victory in two weeks, Rose is breaking new ground and hopes to make it three in a row as he heads to Hoylake for the Open Championship. At a career high third in the Official World Golf Rankings, Rose is reaching top form at the right time and Lamkin is delighted to have been able to play a part in that journey.

The REL ACE grip, used by Rose throughout the year, is made with the patented ACE 3GEN synthetic rubber material. In addition to unmatched shock absorption, the compound is incredibly tacky and comfortable. The super-tacky material, combined with a medium-traction surface pattern, promotes the ideal light grip pressure needed to maximize shot distance and consistency.

The new putter grip used by Justin Rose, the Deep-Etched Paddle, has been a favorite on the PGA Tour for more than a decade.

Victory for Lamkin Grips at the 2013 U.S. Open

Congratulations to the winner of the 2013 U.S. Open Championship on his fantastic victory this weekend. In securing victory at Merion Golf Club, the winner became the first English man to hold the U.S. Open  title for 43 years.

Starting the final day of the competition 2 shots behind, the winner made the most of the secure connection provided by his Lamkin Performance Plus 3GEN  grips to bag his first major. Repeating the steady golf that had been the trademark of his previous 3 rounds the winner stayed in control with a final round 70. The consistency that he showed across the week was beyond virtually every other player as was evident in his final score of 1 over and the huge spread of numbers across the field. Lamkin’s Performance Plus 3GEN  was created with a reduced taper to rein in a golfer’s overactive lower hand for straighter, more controlled shots. The larger outside dimension in the lower section of the grip serves to help players hold off shots while still allowing the full release needed to shape the ball flight. The  3GEN all synthetic rubber  compound adds the benefits of increased tackiness, greater UV resistance and improved vibration dampening. The medium firm, medium density pattern feels soft yet provides excellent lateral friction promoting a light touch and reduced hand tension through the swing.
