Eaton’s Golf Pride Grips division today is introducing its PRO ONLY putter grip series. The golf industry’s leading manufacturer of putter grips on the PGA Tour, Golf Pride has modernized the classic styles preferred by the world’s best putters. With three distinct Tour shapes, the company says the PRO ONLY models were refined with direct player testing to deliver the highest degree of responsiveness and feel performance. The heightened feedback, according to Golf Pride, is created by the proprietary tuned rubber material, affording a new level of precision feel for better distance control on greens of all speeds.
The PRO ONLY putter grip series will be available at retail Sept. 1 and feature a suggested retail price of $12.99 each.

“Many people find it surprising that 70 percent of the Top 30 putters on Tour prefer a smaller size putter grip. They prefer it because it allows them to gain greater feel, feedback and control. The PRO ONLY models deliver those Tour-preferred shapes with three uniquely optimized performance options.” said Bruce Miller, product manager for Golf Pride. “The new PRO ONLY putter-grip series enhances those ‘marksman’ preferences with our new age materials, providing preferred shapes that have been trusted to win countless major championships.”
