MEMPHIS, Tenn. (Feb. 24, 2011) -- On a historic Riviera course that evokes fond memories of Sam Snead, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus and many others, high-performance True Temper shafts created a few new memories featuring shot consistency and winning accuracy at the Northern Trust Open.
Playing True Temper's Dynamic Gold X100 shafts, the 29-year-old Aussie champion shot all four of his rounds in the 60s for his third career PGA TOUR victory. Nine of the Top 10 players at the Northern Trust played shafts designed and manufactured by True Temper. Plus, the tournament's shaft count showed 124 sets of True Temper shafts were in play at the Northern Trust Open.
"For the sixth straight week of the 2011 PGA TOUR season, True Temper shafts have continued to deliver a winning performance," says Scott Hennessy, president and CEO of True Temper Sports.
