Eaton Press Release

SOUTHERN PINES, N.C. … Golf Pride, a division of diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton, announced today that it would extend its existing support of the Folds of Honor Foundation through an online promotion in which the company is encouraging golfers to donate to Folds of Honor Foundation by offering the chance to win a “Golf Pride Patriot Pack.”  The Golf Pride Patriot Pack consists of a full set of the industry leader’s new Z-Grip Patriot grips and a laser golf-yardage measuring device.

The Z-Grip Patriot features a red, white and blue patriotic color scheme in a new design that provides enhanced traction and superior moisture management performance for all-weather control.  The Z-Grip Patriot employs the same pattern popularized by last year’s Z-Grip Cord, but comes in an all-rubber material construction for a softer feel.  The Z-Grip Patriot is available at retail now and features an MRSP of $8.49 per grip.

“We have contributed more than $50,000 to the Folds of Honor Foundation from Patriot Grip sales alone over the last 4 years, and we’re excited about using our growing social media community to help extend that support,” stated Brandon Sowell, global sales and marketing manager for Eaton’s Golf Grip Division. “Folds of Honor Foundation provides valuable support to the families of the brave men and women defending us daily, so we’re proud to continue to be a valued partner of theirs.”

The program will run from now through September 1, 2013.  To make a donation or to get more information on the program, visit http://bit.ly/golfpridepatriot
