WIXOM, MICHIGAN — Lanto Griffin won his first PGA Tour event at the Houston Open, where he buried a clutch 6-foot par putt on the final hole with a SuperStroke Slim 3.0 putter grip to finish 14-under par, one shot clear of the field.
“Congratulations to Lanto Griffin on this tremendous victory,” said SuperStroke CEO Dean Dingman. “We are so happy for his success and very excited about what’s next for him after this career-altering win.”
The latest win from Griffin is an exclamation point on the 31-year-old’s recent evolution as a golfer. As recently as March 25, he occupied the 504th position in the Official World Golf Rankings. He now ranks 108th in the OWGR and leads the PGA Tour’s 2020 FedExCup Season Standings.
One of the biggest improvements in Griffin’s game has been his putting. In his last five PGA Tour events, Lanto has finished 9th, 2nd, 10th, 43rd, and 7th, respectively, in Strokes-Gained Putting. Over this stretch, he’s gained an average of 4.576 strokes on the green over the field.
In 2009, SuperStroke changed putter grips forever with an innovative line of grips featuring its patented “No Taper Technology.” The company has since earned a commanding lead as the No. 1 Putter Grip in Golf and the undisputed putter grip technology leader.
SuperStroke’s current lineup includes performance-driven swing and putter grips that are trusted by major champions Jordan Spieth, Sergio Garcia, Jason Dufner, and hundreds of other professional golfers around the world.
