This past weekend, Rory McIlroy walked away with the victory at the RBC Canadian Open at St. George’s Golf Course in Ontario. McIlroy nabbed the win using one of the most popular SuperStroke putter grips, the Traxion Pistol GT Tour.
McIlroy’s final score, an 8-under 62, beat out Justin Thomas and Tony Finau for a two-stroke win. The win marked McIlroy’s second at the RBC Canadian Open after previously taking home first place in 2019 when he won by seven strokes. This victory brings his total professional wins on the PGA Tour to 21.
“We’re extending a warm congratulations to Mr. McIlroy for his fantastic win in Canada last weekend,” expressed Dean Dingman, CEO of SuperStroke. “It was an exciting tournament to watch and when it came down to it he was able to pull off the win, SuperStroke putting grip in hand.”
This victory at the RBC Canadian Open is McIlroy’s first win of the year and brings his Official World Golf Ranking to number 3. His most recent win was in October of 2021 at the CJ Cup where he edged Collin Morikawa by one stroke.
McIlroy’s putter grip at the RBC Canadian Open was SuperStroke’s Traxion Pistol GT Tour. This putting grip is a new approach to the typical pistol-style putter grips that are incredibly popular with professional golfers. Many choose this putter grip because the design allows the golfer to more easily lock the upper hand into position without a taper. This is key to maintaining consistent and even grip pressure which extends into greater consistency of a putting stroke.
SuperStroke is consistently the top choice of putter grips for professional golfers, including on the PGA Tour. From careful engineering and innovative designs to their performance on the golf course, SuperStroke putter grips are the choice of players like Jordan Spieth and Patrick Cantlay and putting experts like Phil Kenyon. With options tailored to every golfer and putting style, SuperStroke has a putting grip for anyone looking to lower their golf score and improve their technique.
