Sunday Sweep: SuperStroke congratulates Rory McIlroy and Chris Gotterup on their PGA Tour victories

McIlroy claims Wells Fargo Championship by five with Zenergy Pistol Tour grip while Gotterup makes Myrtle Beach Classic his first win on TOUR with Zenergy Pistol 2.0

Wixom, MI – SuperStroke, the No. 1 Putter Grip in golf and the leader in innovative Tour-proven golf grip technology, congratulates four-time major winner Rory McIlroy and first-time winner Chris Gotterup on their PGA TOUR victories this past Sunday. McIlroy’s final-round 65 helped him finish 17-under-par and outpace the field by five shots to claim his fourth Wells Fargo Championship title while Gotterup’s blistering 22-under finish at the Myrtle Beach Classic secured his first win on the PGA TOUR by six shots.


Using a SuperStroke Zenergy Pistol Tour putter grip, McIlroy led the field in Strokes Gained: Total, Driving Distance and Strokes Gained: Off the Tee while amassing 18 birdies and three eagles on his way to victory. He also ranked fourth in the field in Putts per Green in Regulation. Gotterup led the Myrtle Beach Classic field in Birdies (28) and Strokes Gained: Total while using a SuperStroke Zenergy Pistol 2.0 putter grip.

This was McIlroy’s 26th win on the PGA TOUR, bringing him momentum heading into the season’s second major championship and a $3.6 million winner’s check. The 24-year-old Gotterup’s win earned him $720,000 and an exemption into this week’s PGA Championship and debuts in The Sentry and THE PLAYERS Championship in 2025. 


“It was a thrill to have both winners of the week’s PGA TOUR events using SuperStroke Zenergy Pistol putter grips,” says, SuperStroke CEO Dean Dingman. “Congratulations to Rory McIlroy and Scott Gotterup on their impressive multi-stroke victories this past weekend. They both played incredibly well and made clutch putts down the stretch to distance themselves from their competitors. The SuperStroke team wishes the best of luck to Rory and Chris at The PGA Championship this week.”

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.

Part of SuperStroke's groundbreaking Zenergy line, the Pistol Tour and Pistol 2.0 both feature: Enhanced SPYNE™ Technology – The new SPYNE™ Technology has an improved, embossed ridge along the underside of the grip, engineered to make it easier to square the face at impact.   New Multi-Zone Texturing – Strategically placed textured in high-sensory areas designed to optimize feedback and comfort from the incredibly soft polyurethane outer layer.   No Taper Technology – Our patented No Taper minimizes grip pressure with an advanced parallel design that enables golfers to quiet their hands and add consistency to their stroke.
