JumboMax® Grips help “The Most Interesting Man in Golf” finish Runner-Up at The Australian Masters
The reigning U.S. Amateur Champion posted a 4-under 67 Sunday to come up just two shots short of becoming the first amateur in history to win the Australian Masters, held in Melbourne, Victoria. The 22-year-old American was the low amateur and finished in a three-way overall tie for second place, with three-time Australian Masters winner Peter Senior taking first place.
The former SMU Mustang made five birdies against a lone bogey, posting rounds of 69-70-72-67. The native of Clovis, California has been grabbing the attention of the golf world recently by winning tournaments with a golf swing and set of clubs that fly in the face of conventional thinking.
For starters, his irons are all the length of a standard 7-iron, allowing him to groove one swing for all his iron shots. His clubs are then outfitted with JumboMax™ XL grips, which places the grip slightly more in his palms. John Mazzanoble of JumboMax explains that his company coined the phrase “Finger-Palm™ Technology” to set them apart from “standard” grips.
“Standard golf grips are held in the fingers, which makes you want to squeeze them to hold on, while JumboMax Grips are held in the fingers and palms. This eliminates exessive grip pressure, and reduces over- and under-rotation providing more consistent squaring of the club face at impact. Whether you’re a weekend warrior or the #1 Ranked Amateur in the World, golfers of all skill levels can benefit from this technology”.
“What an amazing accomplishment,” said John Mazzanoble, V.P. of Sales for JumboMax Grips. “All of us at JumboMax would like to say congratulations on an incredible year of golf and say that we’re so excited to see what the future holds for this young man.
