McIlroy, playing in the Zurich Classic for the first time, used a SuperStroke Zenergy Pistol Tour putter grip while Lowry used the Zenergy Pistol 1.0 grip. As a team, they led the field with 30 birdies, and each earned $1.29 million in first prize money. This official victory marks McIlroy’s 25th win on the PGA TOUR and the third for Lowry, who won the 2019 Open Championship.

“Congratulations to Rory McIlroy and Shane Lowry on their exceptional play at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans,” says SuperStroke CEO Dean Dingman. “They played so incredibly well together and made clutch shots and putts down the stretch to earn this win. With both of them using SuperStroke Zenergy Pistol grips, that’s a huge endorsement for one of the most popular and proven putter grips on the market.”

SuperStroke's Zenergy Pistol putter grips merge a pistol-style top section that helps golfers lock in their upper hand position with “No Taper Technology” to help golfers maintain even grip pressure and boost the consistency of their stroke.
