SAN DIEGO, 8/22/2019 – With just a few days left on its offer of free grip installation at participating Dick’s Sporting Goods and Golf Galaxy locations, Lamkin Grips, the innovation leader in golf grip manufacturing, is encouraging golfers to capitalize on the offer, refresh their game, and get a grip on the rest of their season.

With free installation available on any set of 8 or more Lamkin grips or any Lamkin putter grip, golfers across the U.S. can experience the performance benefit of having a great connection to their club, whatever their preference. Options available include Lamkin’s critically acclaimed SONAR line that offers a tacky, comfortable connection to the club combined with superior traction from Lamkin’s proprietary Fingerprint Technology. The SONAR line offers options in original design, wrap style – with a slightly tackier feel, or SONAR Tour with a firmer yet comfortable finish designed for golfers with higher swing speeds.

Among the putter grips on offer is the new SINK FIT line that offers a variety of options suited for any golfer that wants to develop a smooth, consistent putting stroke. With pistol, skinny pistol, and larger straight shape options available in both rubber and polyurethane, the SINK FIT line has an option for every style of putter. And with Lamkin’s Fingerprint technology providing the most confident connection, any golfer will feel the benefit of putting with Lamkin.

With these two new lines on offer along with the entire collection of Lamkin’s Tour proven grips – including the iconic Crossline – every golfer will find the right grip for their game. But you need to be quick as the offer of free gripping ends on Sunday August 25th.

Antigua to Offer Merchandise that Benefits PGA HOPE’S Military Veteran Programs

PGA-logoed apparel will be sold in green-grass facilities only; Portion of sales will support PGA HOPE

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (Aug. 15, 2019) —The Antigua Group, Inc.—one of the nation’s leading designers and marketers of lifestyle apparel under the genuine Antigua brand—has entered into an agreement with PGA REACH, the charitable foundation of the PGA of America, to benefit our nation’s Veterans through sales of PGA HOPE apparel at green-grass facilities.

PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) introduces golf to Veterans with disabilities, to enhance their physical, mental, social and emotional well-being. The six-to-eight week curriculum is taught by PGA Professionals trained in adaptive golf and military culture. All programming is funded by PGA REACH and supplemented by PGA Section Foundations, and free to all Veterans.

The PGA HOPE-logoed apparel on Antigua-branded caps and shirts will be sold by PGA Professionals in green-grass locations. A portion of all sales will support PGA HOPE.

“We are proud that Antigua has teamed up with PGA REACH to support our efforts to enhance the lives of our military heroes through PGA HOPE,” said PGA REACH Senior Director Ryan Cannon. “PGA Professionals have the ability to sell PGA HOPE merchandise that is visually appealing for a tremendous cause.”

PGA HOPE also works with the Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA), which enables Recreational Therapists to refer Veterans to the program as a form of therapy. PGA HOPE aspires to create a physically and emotionally healthier Veteran community, by shaping, changing and possibly saving lives through the game of golf.

“Antigua is proud to launch a very special program that benefits our nation’s Veterans through PGA HOPE,” said The Antigua Group President and CEO Ron McPherson. “As we support those who have given so much to our country through programs such as PGA HOPE, we’re delighted to work with PGA Professionals and the game of golf to make a positive impact.”

Customized putters have exploded in popularity over the last few years in the golf industry.  While the rest of the clubs in your bag haven’t experienced this trend quite yet, the putter continues to be the choice for players to create a work of art.

And that’s exactly what ARGOLF is creating – works of art.

ARGOLF is undoubtedly your number one source for milled putters with unlimited customization options. The original concept for ARGOLF putters was to create the most precisely milled and highest performing putter on the market. Still, ARGOLF has always provided customization options for its putters, and its superior technology makes it more of a refined work of art.

There are several ways your ARGOLF putter can be customized – including the grip, shaft, and club head. Grips come in thousands of designs to choose from depending on the size. You can select not only just your favorite color, but your sports team, band, animal and more. Several putter club heads can be completely customized from the color to the lines; you can even add a special logo, favorite phrase or your initials to any putter using our sophisticated laser engraving tools for ultimate precision.

ARGOLF makes it easy to create your very own unique putter in just a few steps through their website:
