Wixom, MI – SuperStroke, the No. 1 Putter Grip in golf and the leader in innovative Tour-proven golf grip technology, congratulates 25-year-old Georgia native and second-year PGA TOUR professional Davis Thompson on securing his first career win with a thrilling 28-under-par finish at the John Deere Classic.

The former two-time All-American and SEC Golfer of the Year in 2021 followed a runner-up appearance at last week’s PGA TOUR event with rounds of 63-67-62-64 to win the John Deere by four shots, after leading by as many as seven strokes. Using a SuperStroke Zenergy Pistol Tour putter grip, Thompson putted masterfully down the stretch and led the field in Strokes Gained Total (18.694) and Birdies (30) while holing 101 feet of putts. He earned $1.44 million in his first win to validate a solid start to his career which also includes two runner-up finishes and 43 cuts made in 63 events. 

“Congratulations to Davis Thompson on a great win at the John Deere Classic that validates the very impressive start he has had to his professional career,” said SuperStroke CEO Dean Dingman. “He looked electrifying holing putt after putt in the final round – with his SuperStroke Zenergy Pistol Tour grip in hand – and is an incredibly worthy champion and a player to watch as this highly competitive PGA TOUR season continues.”
