Justin Rose uses FLAT CAT® Putter Grip in Strong Masters Finish
SAN DIEGO, CA, April 11, 2017– Lamkin Corporation – the original manufacturer of premium golf grips – announces Justin Rose used a FLAT CAT by Lamkin svelte putter grip at the 2017 Masters. Rose delivered a solid final round, taking the solo lead at one point and closing with a 3-under 69 and a tie for the lead before losing in a sudden-death playoff. Rose's second place finish moved him into 9th place in the FedExCup Standings, up 7 places from last week's ranking.
FLAT CAT's unique FLAT 1™ technology puts the feeling of square in the palm of a player's hands, helping them to square their hands, square their shoulders and square their putter face to their intended target line. Each side of the FLAT CAT grip is in a parallel plane with the putter face, allowing every golfer to establish a personal feel with the face of their putter no matter what their putting style – traditional, left-hand low, saw, claw and more.
Rose sunk a 20-foot putt for a birdie on the first hole on Thursday and dropped a couple more long ones on his way to a first-round 69. "That always smartens up a scorecard when you're making some putts of length," Rose said in an LA Times interview.
"Justin played some amazing golf and was extremely gracious after his heartbreaking loss at the Masters. He is a class act and we are proud to have him on our brand ambassador team," said Bob Lamkin, President and CEO of Lamkin Grips. "The FLAT CAT grip is designed to be used with any putting style and is well-suited to Rose's new claw grip."
