Golf Pride Introduces Tour Velvet Tour Tack in Limited Edition Grip Release

PINEHURST, NC – Golf Pride unveiling a limited edition grip that had previously been exclusive to Tour players, the Tour Velvet Tour Tack.

Representing an innovative take on one of the most iconic grips in history, Tour Tack originated from requests from top tour players made to the Golf Pride team and became so popular on Tour that the company decided to make it available to the public for a limited time. Featuring a revised dimple pattern and surface texture that promotes traction, moisture management and comfort, Tour Tack is designed to perform better the hotter the weather gets.

  • Tour Velvet Tour Tack offers the tackiness and traction to help any golfer feel like a pro, i.e. “locked-in” with an increase in confidence.
  • Perfect for players looking for that small but pivotal advantage that will make a difference in their confidence during those extra pressurized moments.
  • Standard sizes only.
