PINEHURST, NC – Golf Pride, a division of power management company Eaton and an industry leader in grip innovation, today announced it was the leading grip brand in play at the 2021 PGA Championship, with 81% of the field including the winner trusting Golf Pride Grips.

13 of the 16 players who finished within the Top 10 (and ties), including the 50-year-old champion, chose Golf Pride at the exceptionally difficult Kiawah Island Ocean Course. The winner relied on Golf Pride’s MCC, which is the #1 Grip Series Worldwide, preferred by both Touring professionals and amateurs with over 250 Tour wins.

Offering the best of both worlds, it’s no surprise that MCC is the dominant grip in golf.

Each week, Golf Pride is the leading grip played from tee-to-green on the PGA Tour with an average of 80% of pros choosing golf Pride swing grips in each event, without any paid endorsements.
