Golf Pride Users Claim Impressive Share of 2014 FedEx Cup Top 30 Bonus Money

SOUTHERN PINES, N.C. … Power management company Eaton announced today that its Golf Pride Grips Division was by far the most successful grip company in this year’s FedEx Cup bonus pool. In fact, 26 out of Top 30 in the final 2014 FedEx Cup standings trusted their games to Golf Pride grips, and in doing so earned $24,010,000 of the possible $25,290,000 (95%) Top 30 bonus pool money that was up for grabs in the playoffs. In addition, Golf Pride claimed 9 out of the Top 10 finishers in the final 2014 FedEx Cup standings.

“While Golf Pride does not pay endorsement fees to players to use our grips, these numbers prove that players do get paid by choosing to play Golf Pride,” said Brandon Sowell, global sales and marketing director for Golf Pride. “We appreciate the trust that the best players in the world place in us and we take very seriously the commitment we have to ensure that we only provide grips that meet our own demanding manufacturing and R&D standards. We take tremendous pride in the fact that when everything is on the line the best players in the world put Golf Pride in their hands.”
