  • MIGUEL ANGEL JIMENEZ WINS WITH NEW WRAP-TECH GRIPS

    SAN DIEGO, January 26, 2015

    Lamkin Corporation – the original manufacturer of premium golf grips – would like to congratulate brand ambassador Miguel Angel Jiménez on his thrilling victory at the Mitsubishi Electric Championship this weekend. This win signifies the 51 year old Spaniard’s first win since becoming a Lamkin brand ambassador and the first win on any Tour for Lamkin’s new Wrap-Tech grip. Jiménez closed out his second victory in three starts on the Champions Tour with six bridies in the last nine holes, carding a closing round 66 to edge out Mark O’Meara by a shot. Jiménez displayed great control throughout the tournament, taking his opportunities when they came. This was epitomized by his tally of 12 under for the 12 par fives across the four days. This was only the second tournament that Jiménez had put the Lamkin Wrap-Tech grips into play and they are clearly becoming a firm favorite. The win in Hawaii comes hot on the heels of a spectacular hole in one in Abu Dhabi last week and following this great start Lamkin hopes that it continues to help Jiménez to a season of highlights. Fueled by Lamkin’s exclusive Double Helix surface texture, the new Wrap-Tech delivers the perfect balance of comfort, control and feel. The grip’s traditional wrap-style -- preferred by some of golf’s greatest legends, including Arnold Palmer – offers a comfortable feel ideally suited for players who don’t wear a glove. The added traction in the unique dual pattern provides enhanced control and slip-resistance. Made with patented ACE material, Wrap-Tech is extraordinarily tacky and shock absorbing, making it perfect for all climates and conditions. Available in standard, midsize or oversize options, the grips showcase a black base color with white, red or blue detailing.
