MEMPHIS, Tenn. (May 22, 2012) -- For the second time in three weeks, the all-new Project X PXi shaft clinched a victory on the PGA TOUR. PXi is the evolution of the revolutionary Project X family, and a high industry benchmark that's proving hard to beat on Tour.
With PXi in his irons and hybrid, the HP Byron Nelson Championship winner took the lead in the final round and closed with an 11-under par 269 at TPC Four Seasons. The victory earned him $1.17 million and secured the No. 1 spot atop the FedEx Cup standings.
"The new PXi is the culmination of years of research and development, so to see it win twice already this year on the PGA TOUR is incredibly rewarding," says Scott Hennessy, president and CEO of True Temper Sports. "PXi maintains the same launch trajectory and spin rates that have made Project X a big success on the pro tours, however the new PXi design takes performance and feel to a level that exceeds anything else in the game today."
Truth in Numbers:• Byron Nelson Champion's bag: PXi 6.5 in his irons & hybrid; Grafalloy ProLite 5-wood; DG Spinner in his sand and lob wedges• 126 sets of shafts by True Temper Sports in play at the Byron Nelson Championship• 17 wins for shafts by True Temper on the 2012 PGA TOUR• BMW Charity Classic winner's bag: Dynamic Gold S300
PXi shafts have been specifically engineered to feel softer in a player's hands in the short irons while simultaneously stiffening the feel of the longer shafts within the set. The PXi shafts feature a unique variable taper design with a dedicated taper rate for each flex. Longer taper rate results in more energy transfer to the ball for a faster and flatter penetrating trajectory. The new PXi shaft is a great hybrid option and provides a smooth transition from Project X irons to hybrids.
