He recorded a 426-yard drive in the finals to defeat fellow Team JumboMax member Bryson DeChambeau.
WHY HE PLAYS JUMBOMAX
"The moment I switched to JumboMax, I instantly had a totally different awareness of my club face. The tackiness of the grip and the perfect size for me (XS) feels like I can apply more force to the handle and gain more control at the same time. This and the additional confidence it gave me, led to winning my first event after I put JumboMax in my bag. And this event was the World Long Drive Championship 2022."

WHY HE PLAYS JUMBOMAX
“I originally switched to JumboMax in 2022 after having wrist surgery. Little did I know that this change would not only keep me healthy but make me a better ball striker and gain more speed. With the options JumboMax provides, I was able to find a grip that increased my ball speed by 3-5 mph on average. JumboMax has helped improve my golf game in every aspect possible and I wouldn’t be where I am today without them!”

WHY HE PLAYS JUMBOMAX
JumboMax has been Dean’s grip of choice for four years. Because of the vast size and weight options that JumboMax has throughout their line, there is always something that fits his needs.
“With the amount of range sessions, practice rounds, and tournament rounds that I play, I was going through grips on a monthly basis. Since switching to Jumbomax, I can go a full year on two sets of grips… that is amazing! The best part is, the more you use them, the better they feel.”
