WIXOM, MICHIGAN — The U.S. Open Champion trusted a SuperStroke Traxion Pistol GT 2.0 putter grip for his first major championship win. He rolled in a 30-foot putt on the iconic 18th hole at Pebble Beach to claim his spot in history, finishing three shots ahead of the No. 1-ranked golfer in the world.

“Nothing is more nerve-wracking than the pressure of the U.S. Open on Sunday,” said SuperStroke CEO Dean Dingman. “We want to congratulate the champion on being unflappable in the face of that pressure at Pebble Beach on his way to becoming a major champion — and doing so at one of our sport’s most historic courses.”

The Traxion Pistol GT is a modern take on a beloved classic. It merges a pistol-style top section that helps golfers lock in their upper hand position with “No Taper Technology” to improve their ability to maintain even grip pressure and boost the consistency of their stroke.

The grip is available in three sizes: Pistol GT Tour, Pistol GT 1.0, and Pistol GT 2.0. The Pistol GT 2.0 is the largest grip in the lineup. Its larger profile was created to help golfers who prefer a pistol-shape putter grip minimize their grip pressure and control face rotation more easily than with SuperStroke’s more compact Pistol GT putter grips.

Like all SuperStroke Traxion putter grips, Pistol GT offers Traxion Control, an advanced surface texture that boosts responsiveness. Its design strategically places “X-shaped treads” in “Traxion Zones” throughout the grip, amplifying feedback in the areas where the sensitive parts of a golfer’s hands contact the grip surface.

Traxion Series grips also feature SuperStroke’s new Spyne Technology, a heavily embossed ridge on the underside of the grips. Spyne Technology functions as a reminder that guides golfers to repeatable hand placement.

Traxion Series putter grips ($29.99 USD each) are available in 15 distinct models including the new Traxion CLAW 2.0, which was created specifically to accommodate the many variations of the fast-growing Claw grip.

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.
