HOUSTON, Texas – SuperStroke – the leading manufacturer of high-performance golf grips – confirms its Traxion Pistol GT 1.0putter grip was used by Jason Kokrak during his victory at the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Houston Open this past weekend.
The 36-year-old relied on the exceptional feel and stability of the popular SuperStroke model to capture his 3rd PGA TOUR title in his last 28 starts, moving up to No. 7 in the FedExCup standings and No. 22 in the world ranking. Two shots behind with six holes to play, Kokrak holed four consecutive birdie putts on Nos. 13-16. A 25-foot birdie putt on the toughest hole at Memorial Park, the 14th, brought Kokrak to one shot off the lead.
Kokrak’s drastic improvement with his putter kept him in contention, even after a falling to nine strokes off the lead after the second round. He holed five putts longer than 20 feet to gain more than eight strokes on the greens. Last season, Kokrak was sixth in Strokes Gained: Putting after ranking outside the top 100 in that stat in each of the previous six seasons.
“Jason’s steady improvement on the greens over the last few seasons has been remarkable to watch,” says Dean Dingman, CEO of SuperStroke. “His trust in our product to deliver the performance needed to continue his rise up the world rankings is just the latest example of the world’s best turning to SuperStroke when it matters most.”
The Pistol GT™ Series is a modern take on a beloved classic. The grip merges a pistol-style top section that helps golfers lock in their upper hand position with “No Taper Technology” to help golfers maintain even grip pressure and boost the consistency of their stroke. All three sizes offer Traxion™ Control, Sypne Technology, and Tech-Port to enhance feel, alignment, and back-weighting options.
One of the most trusted brands on all major tours around the world, SuperStroke’s team of ambassadors includes three-time major champion Jordan Spieth, future hall of famer Sergio Garcia and world-renowned putting coach Phil Kenyon. In addition to the company’s beloved putter grips, SuperStroke offers a full lineup of club grips allowing golfers to experience the benefits of SuperStroke technology in every shot.
