MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Overcoming inclement conditions and one the most challenging courses in the game today, Dynamic Gold - the No. 1 selling shaft in golf - clinched its second major of the year on the PGA TOUR with a victory at the 2012 U.S. Open.
Playing Dynamic Gold, the 2012 U.S. Open champion shot 68 on Saturday and Sunday to come from behind and win the U.S. Open at the fog-shrouded The Olympic Club. The 25-year-old champion joined an exclusive club of U.S. Open champions, and moved to No. 5 in the world rankings. Additionally the second and third place finishers at the tournament were also playing shafts by True Temper.
"For more than a century, the U.S. Open has inspired and thrilled millions of golfers, and we are very honored to once again have Dynamic Gold contribute to a great U.S. Open championship," says Scott Hennessy, president and CEO of True Temper Sports. "True Temper has won ten times more U.S. Open titles than all other shaft manufacturers combined and I believe that's a huge testament to the advanced engineering that has delivered Tour-proven accuracy, distance and consistency shot after shot, year after year."
Truth in Numbers:
• True Temper 127 sets in play at the U.S. Open
• 2012 U.S. Open winner's bag: Dynamic Gold X100 in his irons
• True Temper shafts ranked #2 in driver, fairway woods and hybrid shafts at the US Open
