SAN DIEGO, Calif., June 30, 2014 – Lamkin Corporation, the original manufacturer of premium golf grips, congratulates Justin Rose on his exciting playoff victory at the 2014 Quicken Loans National, becoming a two-time winner of the event. A longtime Lamkin Grips player, Rose currently uses REL ACE grips on all of his swinging clubs. He recently switched his putter grip to Lamkin’s popular Deep-Etched Paddle.
“To do it and get it done making key putts, that’s huge for my psyche going into a major championship,” said Rose following his win. Rose continues to conquer golf’s most challenging conditions with remarkable poise and skill, holing a critical 15-foot putt on the last hole of regulation. Commenting on the demanding conditions at Congressional Country Club, Rose said "I really enjoy this type of golf and this type of test. I think it tested all of us. I'm delighted."
The REL ACE grip, used by Rose throughout the year, is made with Lamkin’s patented ACE 3GEN synthetic rubber material. In addition to unmatched shock absorption, the compound is incredibly tacky and comfortable. The super-tacky material, combined with a medium-traction surface pattern, promotes the ideal light grip pressure needed to maximize shot distance and consistency.
Rose’s new putter grip, the Deep-Etched Paddle, has been a favorite on the PGA Tour for more than a decade. Made with a long-lasting rubber compound and featuring a unique deep horizontally etched pattern, the smaller shape of the grip provides players with tremendous feel and enhanced feedback.
