“We are always committed to delivering the highest quality, best feeling and most functional grips, but appreciate that every golfer will have a different take on those qualities,” noted Bob Lamkin, CEO and President of Lamkin Grips. “We’ve spent the last year developing new materials, surface patterns and sizing to ensure every type of golfer has the best feeling and highest performing grip for their specific game.”
Each of the new grip lines uses specific proprietary hybrid compounds designed to provide top-line performance, grip comfort and long-lasting durability. Lamkin has also developed innovative new Micro-Texture surface patterns for a more comfortable and confident grip connection. All the grip lines are offered in Lamkin’s new PLUS shape featuring a straighter profile that is slightly larger in the lower hand. The reducedtaper profile, inspired by Tour players, helps to eliminate excess grip tension for greater shot control. All three lines come in a Standard+ and a larger Midsize+, while the Comfort PLUS also comes in an Undersize+.
The TS1 is a distinctive high-performance grip that delivers exceptional feel and performance. Made with new hybrid materials that are slightly softer than traditional rubbers, the TS1 retains exceptional durability and all-weather performance. The grip’s functional Micro-Texture Technology optimizes torsional stability and provides outstanding grip control. TS1 is an excellent choice for golfers who prefer a responsive, Tour-inspired and high-performance grip. For those looking for a firmer feel, this is an excellent choice. The other two models feature a little softer feel but still offer plenty of stability.
SONAR is an exceptionally appealing grip that offers both a comfortable, tacky feel with a high-performance material and a functional network of unique micro textures. The reducedtaper profile encourages the ideal light-pressure grip tension for greater shot consistency and control. A tacky and responsive feel make SONAR ideally suited for a wide range of players.
Comfort PLUS is the perfect grip for golfers that prefer a soft and shock-absorbing feel and want the proven durability of a traditional rubber grip. Made with the soft and durable DSX material, Comfort PLUS features a shallow Micro-Texture pattern and unique un-buffed finish to deliver a smoother surface and exceptionally comfortable feel. The reduced-taper, straighter shape reduces excess grip tension for a smoother, more controlled swing. Finally, this is an ultra-soft grip with the allweather performance and durability that only rubber can offer.

Bushnell, which has been a leader in the golf distancemeasuring field for some time, has introduced an innovative, handy new GPS Rangefinder that is both versatile and simple to use.
The Bushnell Phantom is a new GPS device that can be used on your belt with a handy clip, clipped to your bag or mounted on the bar of a golf cart or other metal surface with the highpowered magnet that is part of the unit.

It comes with more than 36,000 golf courses in 30 countries already pre-loaded, and provides simple measurements to the front, center and back of each green—along with four hazard/layup distances per- hole.
Added features include auto course and hole recognition/ advance, shot distance calculator and a durable battery that can last through two complete rounds before recharging. The Bluetooth feature allows for wireless course updates, and the push-button interface is very easy to use.
