Golf Pride was the Overwhelming Grip of Choice for 94% of Players at the 2019 NCAA Men’s and Women’s Division I Golf Championships

SOUTHERN PINES, N.C. … Eaton announced today that its Golf Pride Grips Division was the most used grip brand at both the 2019 NCAA Men’s and Women’s Division I Championships. By the numbers, 150 of 156 players (96%) competing in this year’s NCAA Men’s Golf Championship at Blessings Golf Course trusted their games to Golf Pride grips. The 2019 Men’s NCAA Division I Individual Champion also trusted his championship quest to Golf Pride’s Z-Grip cord. At 2019 NCAA Men’s and Women’s Division I Golf Championships all of Golf Pride’s performance models were played with the brand’s flagship model, MCC, leading as the most played grip.


At the 2019 NCAA Women’s Division I Golf Championship, 91% of the field chose Golf Pride, including the individual winner who trusted her game to Golf Pride’s popular MCC grips. The MCC is designed to offer two distinct performance advantages to each of a player’s hands.  Engineered with high performance rubber in the lower hand, the grip provides enhanced feel and responsiveness.  BCT® cord in the upper hand offers moisture management and improved traction.


“We congratulate all of the teams and individuals who competed at the NCAA Division I Golf Championships this season,” said Brandon Sowell, global sales and marketing director for Golf Pride. “We are honored seeing so many of golf’s next generation of stars trusting the Golf Pride brand on college golf’s biggest stage.”
