MEMPHIS, Tenn. (Jan. 31, 2012) -- Consistent and accurate short game play was a key component in this weekend's unexpected win at the Farmers Insurance Open. Playing the DG Spinner wedge shaft by True Temper, the Farmers Open champion shot a final round 67 and prevailed in a dramatic two-hole playoff.
The champion trusted the increased spin of DG Spinner to deliver two clutch wedge shots setting up birdies on both the 72nd and first playoff holes. He relied on DG Spinner once more to secure the win with a delicate up-and-down for par from behind the 16th green earning his third PGA Tour title.
In addition to the champion's use of DG Spinner, True Temper shafts dominated the field with the company's Project X, Grafalloy and True Temper brands taking all Top 10 money positions. According to the shaft count, there were also 134 sets of True Temper shafts in play in the Farmers Insurance Open field.
"Control and accuracy are key elements in short game success and there's no bigger success than winning on the PGA TOUR," says Chad Hall, director of product marketing and global tour operations for True Temper Sports. "The DG Spinner's unique design lowers the ball launch trajectory and increases ball spin for enhanced control and greater stopping power. DG Spinner has been in the winner's circle more than 10 times in just the short time it has been on the global tours."
The DG Spinner wedge shaft is the latest technology from True Temper's highly popular Dynamic Gold line of shafts and is specifically designed to lower ball launch and increase ball spin during full- and low-impact swing conditions. DG Spinner shafts are available in two flexes - Wedge flex for sand and lob wedges and Wedge+ flex for gap and pitching wedges.
