Three-time winner uses Pistol 1.0 putter grip to win in dramatic fashion
(Wixom, MI) – SuperStroke, the No. 1 Putter Grip in golf and the leader in innovative Tour-proven golf grip technology, congratulates 35-year-old Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada-born Nick Taylor who sank a dramatic 72-foot eagle putt to end a four-hole sudden-death playoff and make the RBC Canadian Open his third-career victory.
With chants of “Taylor! Taylor! Taylor!” and choruses of “O Canada” ringing out from spectators throughout his final round, Taylor birdied the final two holes to close with a six-under-par 66 to earn his spot in a two-man playoff. His stirring win, the first by a Canada native at the RBC Canadian Open in 69 years, secured Taylor a two-year playing exemption on the PGA Tour.
Taylor, who earned his spot in the 2024 Sentry Tournament of Champions and his first trip to The Masters since 2020 with this victory, used a SuperStroke Pistol 1.0 putter grip to close out the win and collect the $1.62 million winner’s check.
“The entire SuperStroke team is thrilled to celebrate Nick Taylor’s historic victory at the RBC Canadian Open. We were on the edge of our seats when Nick drained that epic putt using his SuperStroke Pistol 1.0 putter grip,” says SuperStroke CEO Dean Dingman. “His putting was clutch the entire week, as he ranked 10th in Strokes Gained Putting for the event with 4.831 strokes gained on the field over four rounds.”
Five of the players who finished in the top 10 at the RBC Canadian Open were using SuperStroke putter grips.
