Represented by Key Accounts Manager EMEA, Craig Watson, Golf Pride was presented with the award at the 2021 CPG Annual Awards Supported By Rolex at Penina Hotel & Golf Resort. The US-based golf grip company joins an exclusive list of previous winners including Duncan WeirTheodore VassilakisMustafa KoçSamuel Ryder, and Renton Laidlaw.

On receipt of the award, Watson said: “As a proud partner of the CPG, we are very pleased to have received this recognition for the work that Golf Pride have done with the organisation’s collective membership to support their PGA Professionals over the past 23 years.

“PGA Professionals fulfil hugely significant roles within golf clubs and facilities, that can often have anything from five to six hundred members at each, so we strongly view club regripping as an integral part of any successful golf retail business. We will continue to help educate and support the workforce of the game in the best way that we can.”

“Golf Pride have been a fantastic supporter of the CPG, our Member Countries and their collective PGA Professionals over the many years that we have been partners in golf together” commented CPG Chief Executive, Ian Randell

“Golf Pride recognise the importance of the PGA Professional and in providing the appropriate education and support to enable them to flourish. Our partnership with Golf Pride has, and continues to be, one that we are hugely proud of and we are delighted to be recognising their impact through this award.”

For over seven decades, Golf Pride have been the global leader in golf grip innovation and technology, and has laid claim to more major wins than any other grip company on Tour. It has been a partner of the Confederation of Professional Golf [CPG] for over two decades and continues to play an important role in supporting the industry, PGAs and PGA Professionals internationally.
