Lamkin Golf Grips was founded in Chicago, Illinois by Elver B. Lamkin in 1925.[1][2]

Lamkin Golf Grips is currently run by the third generation of Lamkins, Robert J. Lamkin, who became the president and CEO in 2001.[1][2] They also sponsor the Lamkin Grips San Diego Classic which has hosted by San Diego State each March since 2007.[3][4]

In 2004, Lamkin announced plans to raise $1m to help fund the battle against Prostate cancer, as a sponsor of the Prostate Cancer Foundation.[1] As of 2008, they had raised more than $400,000 for this cause.[2][5]
