True Temper shafts win St. Jude's Classic
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — True Temper’s Dynamic Gold delivered an exciting win in a play-off at this weekend’s FedEx St. Jude Classic on the PGA TOUR. The event is held at TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tenn., which coincidentally is also where True Temper Sports is headquartered (just off the #2 hole!).
The FedEx St. Jude Classic champion played Dynamic Gold SL throughout his set and delivered his first PGA TOUR win after an exciting three-hole playoff. Additionally, shafts by True Temper were in the bags of every one of the Top 10 money winners at the event, demonstrating again why the Memphis-based company is the world’s No. 1 golf shaft manufacturer.
“We’re very pleased with True Temper’s strong showing this weekend across all the global pro tours, and we’re particularly thrilled about winning here on our ‘home turf’ in Memphis at the FedEx St. Jude Classic,” says Scott Hennessy, president and CEO of True Temper Sports. “According to the shaft count at the St. Jude, there were 132 sets of True Temper shafts in play this weekend. This is obviously the vast majority of the shafts in the field, and these numbers clearly show the world’s best golfers trust True Temper shafts above all others. Trust is something that must be earned week after week, and all of us at True Temper are deeply committed to continuing to support players at all levels of the game.”
On the Nationwide Tour, True Temper’s Rifle iron shafts, Grafalloy’s ProLaunch Red driver shaft and Project X hybrid shafts shared the victory as the winner of the Rex Hospital Open earned the title for the second time in five years. Across the Atlantic, the champion of the BMW Italian Open relied on Dynamic Gold Tour Issue and Project X graphite in his irons and hybrids to gain his first ever victory on the European Tour.
The Number One selling shaft in golf, Dynamic Gold shafts are preferred by skilled players seeking a low, penetrating ball flight. Dynamic Gold features an internal tip reinforcement technology and tighter weight sorting tolerance for precision custom fitting. Dynamic Gold shafts are available in tapered and parallel irons and parallel woods. True Temper’s Project X line of shafts are also proven winners, including the newest addition — Project X graphite shaft — which has quickly established itself as the premier graphite shaft in the game today.
