CARLSBAD, Calif. (January 18, 2007) -- amateurgolf.com today announced that Lamkin Grips has come on board as a new sponsor for 2007, joining Bridgestone Golf and UST Golf Shaft, who have both renewed as primary sponsors.
”Our goal is to align with top-tier companies in the golf business, and Lamkin is one of the most respected names in the game,” said amateurgolf.com Founder Pete Wlodkowski.
The sponsorship will include a substantial presence on the amateurgolf.com website, and at the amateurgolf.com Tournament Series of 17 events at top California courses and National venues like Bandon Dunes, Oregon and Kiawah Island, South Carolina. At many of the events, players will have the opportunity to try one of Lamkin’s new grips on a club of their choice.
“Player feedback is key for us,” says Bob Lamkin, president and CEO of Lamkin Corporation. “We use this information to help us develop new products, and improve our existing lineup.”
The focus of the sponsorship will be on product awareness and education, something that amateurgolf.com members value as they strive to take their games to the next level. Throughout the year the technical benefits of being fit for the proper grip will be emphasized and amateurgolf.com will use video segments, including an interview with Bob Lamkin, to give customers a look at the thought process behind the design of Lamkin Grips.
The interview will also touch on the grip improvements Lamkin will introduce for 2007, and some of the charitable work the company does, all while putting a human face on the largest grip manufacturer in the world.
