Golf Pride Is Trusted By 9 Players That Finished In The Top 10 Including The Champion At The 118th U.S. Open

Eaton announced today that its Golf Pride Grips Division was the overwhelming grip choice used at the 2018 United States Open, with 122 players trusting the brand without any paid endorsements.

In the field, 9 players finishing in the Top 10 at the esteemed Shinnecock Hills Golf Club trusted the #1 Grip in Golf. The Champion relied on Golf Pride's popular Tour Velvet Cord model to capture back-to-back wins, an accomplishment that hasn't been done in nearly 30 years. In fact, players using Golf Pride grips have won 9 of the last 10 U.S. Opens, including five in a row since 2014.

Unique to the U.S. Open is the inclusion of the world's top amateurs in the field. This year, a record 20 amateurs qualified for the event and 16 trusted their games to Golf Pride, including both players who tied for Low Am honors.

"We are incredibly honored that 9 players that finished in the top 10 chose to play Golf Pride, including the winner who has won consecutive U.S. Opens with our Tour Velvet Cord in Midsize. In fact, we continue to see more Tour players and amateurs alike utilizing Midsize grips to dial in the technology to best fit their game," said Brandon Sowell, global sales and marketing director for Golf Pride. "Additionally, we had five distinct Golf Pride grip models finish in the Top 10 showing the variety of performance technology that the best players in the world rely on even in the most trying conditions."

Each week, Golf Pride is the leading grip played from tee-to-green on the PGA TOUR with an average of 80% of pros choosing Golf Pride swing grips in each event, without any paid endorsements.

Which phrase best describes you on the golf course: 'calm and composed' or 'nervous and flustered'?

If you answered 'nervous and flustered', you can probably recall many times when feelings of nervousness sent your game into a tailspin.

One of the biggest reason golfers fall prey to nervousness during a round is that they are too focused on how other golfers around them are performing--golfers on the leaderboard or in their group.

When a nervous golfer sees other golfers shooting lower scores or scoring a birdie on a hole, they often try to do too much...

The nervous golfer tries to match scores by trying to hit the perfect shot even though he lacks the confidence in his ability to make the shot...

This approach leads to increased anxiety, inaccuracy, and overwhelming frustration.

A better approach is to play the golf course, as if you were in a bubble.

Focusing on your game will lessen the pressure you place on yourself by eliminating the need to replicate the scores of other golfers you are playing against.

Without the added pressure, that overwhelming nervousness will subside.

Nervousness is not just problematic for recreational and amateur golfers.

Even tour golfers need to find ways to manage nerves.

For example, Annie Park, the No. 236 player in the world, kept her nerves at bay and won the 2018 ShopRite LPGA Classic.

There are plenty of factors that could have sparked excessive nervousness for Park, such as; only having partial status on the Tour and other golfers surging up the leaderboard during the final round.

Although Park admitted to some degree of nerves, she stayed calm, poised and focused, preventing her nervousness from spiraling out of control and taking over her game.

Park made six birdies and an eagle over her first 14 holes and four pars over the last four holes during the last round to get to 16 under.

Park’s sole focus on what she was doing was the major contributing factor to her one-stroke victory.

PARK: "I was definitely nervous out there. It's golf and you're leading. It's kind of normal. But, I mean, I've won three tournaments on the Symetra and won national NCAAs, so I think all these wins kind of helped me have the experience."

"So I was just focusing on trying to make my putts, hit some great shots... But I really wanted to beat my personal record, 8-under, and so was that basically what was going on through my head the whole time."

Park employed several effective strategies to keep her in her bubble, focus on her game and manage her nerves:

1. Park accepted her nerves. Park understood that nerves are a part of the game.
2. Park relied on her past experiences to give her the confidence to perform under pressure.
3. Park focused on bettering HER score.

These strategies can also work for you too.

Take control of your game by winning out over nerves.

Tip for Winning the Nerves Game:

Prepare ahead of time and don’t wait until it’s crunch time. Decide on a strategy, such as playing the game within the game, to help you manage your nerves before you find yourself in the lead.

Practice your strategy beforehand when there is less pressure.

The more comfortable you are with that strategy, the better you will be able to effectively apply it to manage your nerves when it matters most.

SPECIAL NOTICE

Please don’t be fooled by imitators of the Professional Golf Teachers Association of America. It has come to our attention that several other organizations are attempting to hijack our reputation, our certification designations, mimic our unique programs, especially our Home Study module, and in some cases, leverage even our name as their own. The name “Professional Golf Teachers Association of the United States”, formerly operated by National Golf Schools has ceased to exist after a settlement was reached between the parties.

The Professional Golf Teachers Association of America is and always will be the foremost 100% professional golf teaching certification institute in the world.

While these other programs and teaching organizations direct their marketing materials and resources to the targeting of all applicants (to cover their extensive advertising and marketing costs), whether qualified or not, the PGTAA’s philosophy and target market is that individual/golfer who desires to be a teaching professional in the field and not just an enthusiast. Since 1997 our mandatory personal telephone interview helps the PGTAA maintain their high level of members appreciated by all in the golf industry .

We do not offer various levels of certifications designed to separate you from your money and whose “membership/certification/levels of instructor” cards are useless and of zero value in the golf industry.

When comparing the PGTAA to ANY other teaching institution, whether PGA, LPGA or USGTF, our cost to become a fully certified golf teaching professional is $995.00 via the Home Study module or $2495.00 via the On-Site module. Going through the certification programs of the aforementioned organizations will cost you in excess of $5,000.00!

Most importantly, the PGTAA is 100% all about teaching.

The PGTAA has over 50 Tour players including Master’s, PGA and US Open Champions, who avail themselves of our members teaching expertise.

There is only one Professional Golf Teachers Association of America, and you can always find us at www.PGTAA.com.
