Congratulations to PGA Tour veteran Wyndham Clark on his first-career major championship victory at The United States Open at Los Angeles Country Club. Clark, who recorded his first career victory at The Wells Fargo Championship in May, fired a final-round 70 to hold off three former major winners and win by a single stroke. Clark played in the final group in the final two rounds, showing a steady resolve that culminated with a lengthy clutch lag putt at the 72nd hole to set up the clinching tap in.
With this monumental victory, Clark who uses a SuperStroke Zenergy Tour 3.0 17” putter grip (from the brand’s new “Off the Truck” series), moved up to fourth place in the FedEx Cup Playoff Standings and collected the $3.6 million winner’s purse. The NBC Sports broadcast referenced numerous times that Clark put this putter set up, including his SuperStroke grip, into play earlier this spring after admiring how well another popular player on tour was putting and Clark ordered a putter with that player’s exact specs. Clark has now won twice with this unique putting configuration which uses extra length for a counter-balance effect and a thicker, no-taper grip for stroke stability.
“Congratulations to Wyndham Clark, a tremendously talented golfer and rising star in the game on his impressive victory at the U.S. Open. Wyndham putted beautifully all week, using a SuperStroke Zenergy Tour 3.0 17” putter grip,” says SuperStroke CEO Dean Dingman. “His putting stands out and it’s a thrill to see him having success with a putter and grip configuration that is quietly catching with pros and amateurs alike. We’re proud to congratulate Wyndham Clark as the latest player to win a major championship with a SuperStroke putter grip. He’s a deserving champion.”
Eight of the players who finished tied for 10th, or better, at the U.S. Open were using SuperStroke putter grips. SuperStroke brand ambassador Patrick Cantlay shot 67 - 69 in the final two rounds to finish tied for 14th.
At 3.6 inches longer than the standard grip, the Zenergy Tour 3.0 17" – released as part of SuperStroke’s “Off the Truck” series of grips that have been developed with crucial input from tour professionals seeking feel, comfort, performance, and a competitive edge –offers golfers a range of unique benefits. Like any of SuperStroke's extended length grips, the Tour 3.0 17" can be used to achieve an armlock setup by positioning the grip up the forearm. Additionally, the Tour 3.0 17" grip can serve as a counterbalance option, extending the grip above the hands. This allows golfers to shift the weight above the hands and elevate the balance point of the putter, resulting in a more consistent stroke.
Available in White & Black and Red & Black options, the Zenergy Tour 3.0 17" Tour Series putter grip features SuperStroke’s traditional and most popular putter grip profile. The Tour Series parallel design has a uniform lower hand profile to minimize grip pressure and maintain putter head path for a more consistent stroke.
