MEMPHIS, Tenn. (March 6, 2012) -- In the hands of the new No. 1 player this weekend, Project X proved again why it is the shaft of choice for players who demand pinpoint accuracy from their iron shafts. The Honda Classic champion won his first PGA TOUR event of the year and rose to first in the Official World Golf Ranking with two clutch saves at the end of an exciting final round on Sunday.
The champion wasn't the only player to rely on Project X this weekend. The Honda Classic's runner up was playing a Project X PXi shaft in his 2-iron and he shot the lowest final round of his career to edge within one shot of the lead.
"The Honda Classic was another great win for the Project X brand which revolutionized steel golf shafts," says Chad Hall, director of product marketing and global tour operations for True Temper Sports. "We continue to push the envelope with new innovations such as PXi, which is the most sophisticated steel shaft design in the game today. It was exciting to see Project X continue its winning legacy and I'm confident this weekend's second-place finish is just the beginning for PXi."
The PXi shafts incorporate the hallmarks of the Project X line - tour-caliber spin control, penetrating trajectory and unrivaled tip stability - with the benefits of a 10 percent weight reduction. The end result is an iron shaft that delivers maximum club speed with the shot control demanded by the best players in the world.
