For the last six decades, Golf Pride has been a global leader in golf grip innovation and technology, from the creation of the slip-on grip to revolutionary advancements in cord golf grips with their new Brushed Cotton Technology (BCT).
Thomas L. Fawick, from Cleveland, Ohio, founded Golf Pride in 1949. Initial models were moulded directly to the club shaft, and it wasn't long before bonded on Golf Pride grips were standard on many new golf clubs. The new rubber grips provided improved feel and durability. They were also lighter than traditional leather grips, absorbed shock more effectively, and gave a more positive, high-traction grip.
The first 'Slip-On' Golf Grip
1953 saw the introduction of the first 'slip-on' grip, a major development at the time. The impact of the slip-on golf grip was significant and lasting. The new slip-on grip immediately changed the economics in manufacturing golf clubs. It also made grip replacement a staple service in golf shops.
