SuperStroke Congratulates Robert MacIntyre on One-Stroke Victory at the RBC Canadian Open

WIXOM, MI – SuperStroke, the No. 1 Putter Grip in golf and the leader in innovative Tour-proven golf grip technology, congratulates 27-year-old Scottish professional Robert MacIntyre on securing his first career win at the RBC Canadian Open.

The 2023 European Ryder Cup team standout and two-time winner on the European Tour fired a final-round 68 to finish the event 16-under-par and one shot clear of the field. Using a SuperStroke Zenergy Pistol 1.0 putter grip, MacIntyre made numerous clutch putts down the stretch and led the field in Strokes Gained Putting, Eagles, Putts Per Green in Regulation, Strokes Gained: Total while holing 108 feet of putts. He earned $1.7 million and 500 FedEx Cup points in the win during what is officially his rookie year on the PGA TOUR.

MacIntyre’s win was the seventh consecutive PGA TOUR victory by a player using a SuperStroke putter grip.

“Robert MacIntyre is a global star in the game, so it was only a matter of time before his sterling game brought him a win on the PGA TOUR,” said SuperStroke CEO Dean Dingman. “Congratulations to Robert on becoming the fifth player from Scotland to win on the PGA TOUR. His putting – with his SuperStroke Zenergy Pistol 1.0 grip in hand – was spectacular all week and he’s deserving of this great win.”

SuperStroke’s Zenergy Pistol putter grips merge a pistol-style top section that helps golfers lock in their upper hand position with “No Taper Technology” to help golfers maintain even grip pressure and boost the consistency of their stroke.

Part of SuperStroke’s groundbreaking Zenergy line, the Pistol 1.0 features:

  • Enhanced SPYNE™ Technology – The new SPYNE™ Technology has an improved, embossed ridge along the underside of the grip, engineered to make it easier to square the face at impact.
  • New Multi-Zone Texturing – Strategically placed textured in high-sensory areas designed to optimize feedback and comfort from the incredibly soft polyurethane outer layer.
  • No Taper Technology – Our patented No Taper minimizes grip pressure with an advanced parallel design that enables golfers to quiet their hands and add consistency to their stroke.

SuperStroke grips are trusted by hundreds of top professional golfers. So far in 2024, SuperStroke users have won 30 tournaments on golf’s major professional tours, totaling more than $31.4 million in first-place prize money in those events.
