WIXOM, MICHIGAN — SuperStroke congratulates Dustin Johnson on his victory at the WGC-Mexico Championship, where he rolled to victory with a SuperStroke Pistol GT 1.0 putter grip.
Johnson’s final score of 263 (21-under par) was the lowest by five shots in the three years the event has been played at Chapultepec Golf Club. The win was Johnson’s sixth World Golf Championship victory, placing him second all-time in WGC wins. It was also his 20th PGA Tour win.
“Congratulations to Dustin Johnson on yet another WGC win,” said SuperStroke CEO Dean Dingman. “To see a player of his caliber make the switch from a conventional putter grip to our technology is no small thing. It speaks volumes to the confidence and performance No-Taper Technology and Traxion Control can offer any golfer.”
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 1.0 is SuperStroke’s medium-size pistol grip that was created to help golfers minimize grip pressure and control face rotation more easily.
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, Jason Dufner, and hundreds of other professional golfers around the world.
