MEMPHIS, Tenn. (August 12, 2013) — The 2013 PGA Champion won a two- stroke victory on Sunday with Project X PXi in his irons and True Temper’s DG Spinner in his wedges. While many players in the field struggled with the soft fairways and greens, the champion lead the field with solid iron play.

Two memorable moments from this weekend’s Major included the champion’s eagle on no. 2 which tied him for the lowest round in major history and his 12-foot birdie on 16 yesterday. Both are testaments to his skillful short game and the spin produced by DG Spinner technology. His win at the 95th PGA Championship marked his first win at a Major and his third PGA TOUR career victory.

“All of us here at True Temper congratulate the champion on his first victory at a Major and his incredible game throughout the tournament,” said Scott Hennessy, president and CEO of True Temper Sports.

“One of the big stories from the weekend has been the champion’s accuracy with his irons and the spin on his wedge shots, which is exactly how we designed PXi and DG Spinner shafts, respectively, to perform. Both of these new shafts were designed and tested on the global tours to get you closer to the pin, which we saw shot after shot at the PGA Championship.”

PXi also scored top spots on the Web.com tour this weekend, placing second and third at the Price Cutter Charity Classic.

Truth in Numbers

The PGA Championship winner’s bag:

• Project X PXi 6.5 (4-9);
• DG Spinner (SW, LW); PXi 6.5 (HYB)
• 117 players in The PGA Championship field trusted shafts by True Temper
• 25 2013 PGA TOUR events won by shafts by True Temper

The revolutionary lightweight 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.

The DG Spinner’s unique design incorporates a special section along the length of the shaft that decreases launch angles by as much as three degrees and increases the ball’s spin rate by as much as 700+ rpm.
