Golf Pride grips were used by 81 percent of all players at the 2011 US Open, according to data compiled by the authoritative Darrell Survey Company.

The survey noted that 127 of the 156 players in the field had Golf Pride grips on the majority of clubs in their bag, with 81 players - more than half the field - using the Golf Pride Tour Velvet model.

Additionally, 23 players - more than were using any single competitor brand - played with high-performance and colourful Golf Pride New Decade Multi-Compound grip models (pictured right), while the new Golf Pride VDR grip is also gaining momentum with four players in the field using that model.

"The U.S. Open is one of the most prestigious and exciting golf tournaments in the world," said Dan Koehler, Director of Global Sales and Marketing for Eaton's Golf Grip Division. "The fact that so many elite players consistently trust our grips under these intense conditions speaks volumes for the quality and performance of Golf Pride."

The Golf Pride brand is recognised globally as the number one choice in grips among tour and recreational players, competitive amateur golfers, club manufacturers and club repairmen. For more information, visit
