MEMPHIS, Tenn. (June 30, 2013) — Across the pond, the winner of the 2014 BMW International Open trusted his game to Project X PXi for his first European Tour win.

The 31-year-old winner shot back-to-back bogey-free 65s on Saturday and Sunday to land in a competitive four man playoff. He birdied the fifth playoff hole for the win.

Stateside, the Quicken Loans National on the PGA TOUR was also settled by a playoff. The Champion trusted the new Dynamic Gold Tour Issue Onyx wedge shafts to save a tricky par on the 71st hole and a clutch bogey save after hitting his approach into the water on the 72nd hole. He then went on to make par on the first playoff hole to secure the title.

“Both the European and PGA TOUR events this weekend had competitive fields, which was made even more evident by both tournaments being settled by playoffs,” Chad Hall, director of product marketing and global tour operations for True Temper Sports said. “It is exciting for us to see two of our newer products—PXi and Dynamic Gold Tour Issue Onyx—have a hand in settling those playoffs. We just introduced Dynamic Gold Tour Issue Onyx at the St. Jude Classic earlier this month, so a win this soon is incredibly gratifying and speaks to the immediate acceptance the shaft has gained on tour.”

The new True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue Onyx shafts have the same tour- winning performance of Dynamic Gold Tour Issue, the #1 wedge shaft in the history of golf, but with a new liquid black finish. The wedge shafts will be available in S400 and X100 starting July 14 through True Temper’s Performance Fitting Centers.

Truth in Numbers:

• The Quicken Loans National winner’s bag: Dynamic Gold Tour Issue Onyx S400 (AW, SW, LW)
• 75 sets of True Temper shafts in play at the Quicken Loans National
• The BMW International Open winner’s bag: Project X PXi (3-PW)

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.
