SAN DIEGO — Delivering tour-proven stability, comfort and traction, Lamkin grips chalked up their third pro tour win in three weeks and their third straight victory at the Michelob ULTRA Open at Kingsmill.

This year’s Michelob Ultra Open champion, a LPGA Hall-of-Famer, used Lamkin Crossline grips to earn her 72nd LPGA Tour victory and eclipse the $22 million mark in career earnings. She shot a final-round 66 with seven birdies and set a new tournament-record of 19-under-par (64-66-69-66=265) for the event.

“The original Crossline grips are the winningest grip design in Lamkin history, and we’re very excited that the stability and traction provided by the Crossline grip continues to give a competitive edge on pro tours,” says Bob Lamkin, president and CEO of Lamkin Corp. “For more than 80 years, our family-owned business has always taken pride in our continued commitment to innovative golf equipment and material research. We know there are some mega-corporations that churn out golf grips as part of a product line that includes car parts and other rubber products, but Lamkin has always specialized in golf and we’ve been doing it longer than any other grip company in the world today.

The Crossline grip features a proprietary M2 rubber compound that adds tack and durability while the distinctive pattern increases hand-traction and reduces torque for ultimate performance. In the Crossline cord models, soft cord fabric is strategically positioned throughout the grip, adding maximum traction for all-weather conditions. Designed to provide distinctly soft feel, the Crossline is available in a variety of models, including lite, full cord, mid-size, logo-down, ladies and junior. “Crossline grips have delivered wins on every pro tour in the world and proven week-after-week why hundreds of pro players trust Lamkin grips to provide a winning difference,” adds Lamkin. “Delivering a better game of golf is what Lamkin grips are all about.“
