SuperStroke Congratulates Kevin Kisner On WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play Win

WIXOM, MICHIGAN – SuperStroke congratulates Kevin Kisner on his first World Golf Championship victory at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, where he holed more than 450 feet of putts using SuperStroke’s new Traxion Tour 2.0 putter grip.

The Traxion Tour 2.0 is part of SuperStroke’s Tour Series putter grip lineup, the latest version of the company’s original round-back, No-Taper Technology putter grips that changed the way golfers think about putting.

Kisner was one of the first PGA Tour players to switch to SuperStroke’s new Traxion Series in 2019. The Traxion Series includes putter and swing grips with Traxion Control, an advanced surface texture that boosts responsiveness. Its design strategically places “X-shaped treads” in “Traxion Zones” throughout the grip, amplifying feedback in the areas where the sensitive parts of a golfer’s hands contact the grip surface.

Traxion Series putter grips also feature SuperStroke’s new Spyne Technology, a heavily embossed ridge on the underside of the grips. Spyne Technology functions as a reminder that guides golfers to repeatable hand placement, making it easier to square putter face at impact.

Traxion Series putter grips are available in 15 distinct models including the new Traxion CLAW 2.0, which was created specifically to accommodate the many variations of the fast-growing Claw grip.

Titleist Introduces New TS4 Driver – An Ultra Low-Spin Design with Titleist Speed

FAIRHAVEN, MA – The introduction of the new Titleist TS4 driver provides golfers seeking ultra-low spin performance with the speed and distance gains that have made Titleist TS2 and TS3 the most played driver models this season on the PGA Tour.

The new TS4 is engineered to be a high-speed ultra low-spin design – challenging the notion that a driver designed for extreme spin reduction can’t produce this level of ball speed.

Available in golf shops and fitting locations beginning in late June, TS4 merges technologies developed through the Titleist Speed Project with a low, forward CG that neutralizes spin to produce a longer, more piercing ball flight.

TS4 Technology & Performance
The innovations used to drive ball speed in TS2 and TS3 drivers have been optimized for TS4’s 430cc Speed Chassis, designed to aggressively reduce spin and maximize distance for high-spin players:

  • Ultra-Thin Titanium Crown. The thinnest cast titanium crown (20% thinner than 917 drivers) in the game allows weight to be redistributed low and forward for reduced spin.
  • Thinner, Faster Face. The fastest face Titleist has ever made – a refined Radial VFT (variable face thickness) that reduces weight – delivers faster ball speeds and increased forgiveness. Every TS driver face undergoes a 100% CT inspection to ensure speed performance is at the maximum allowable limit.
  • Streamlined Shape. The aerodynamic design of TS4 – featuring a 430cc classic, pear shape – reduces drag, allowing golfers to swing faster for increased club head speed and more distance.
  • Low, Forward CG: The low and forward CG position (5mm forward vs. TS2) – highlighted by the placement of the SureFit Flatweight– produces ultra-low spin for a piercing ball flight that is straighter and more consistent.

Titleist’s patented SureFit Hosel, featuring 16 independent loft and lie settings, allows for additional ball flight optimization through precision fitting.
