New Golf Pride Z-Grip Patriot Delivers Performance with a Purpose

(SOUTHERN PINES, N.C.) - Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton's Golf Pride grips division will continue its support of the Folds of Honor Foundation.  As the two organizations begin their fifth year of working together, Golf Pride has refreshed the Patriot grip offering for 2013, with the new Z-Grip Patriot.  Like the previous Patriot, for every grip sold, Golf Pride will donate a portion of the sale to the Folds of Honor Foundation, a legacy foundation designed to provide educational scholarships for dependents and spouses of service members who were either killed or disabled in service to the United States.

The Z-Grip Patriot features the same red, white and blue patriotic color scheme as its predecessor, but in a new design that provides enhanced traction and superior moisture management performance for all-weather control.  The Z-Grip Patriot features the same pattern popularized by last year’s Z-Grip Cord, but comes in an all-rubber material construction for a softer feel.  The Z-Grip Patriot features a street price of $8.49 per grip and will be available in March 2013.  

“The original Z-Grip Cord was well received in 2012, but many consumers asked for it in an all-rubber model, too” stated Brandon Sowell, global sales and marketing manager for Eaton’s Golf Grip Division. “We recognized the opportunity to freshen the Patriot grip and give our customers what they wanted.  We have contributed more than $50,000 to the Folds of Honor Foundation through the first 4 years of the program and we expect with this new, innovative technology to continue to fuel those contributions.”
