MEMPHIS, Tenn. (June 6, 2012) -- True Temper Sports, the number one golf shaft manufacturer in the world, is ready to host the PGA TOUR during the FedEx St. Jude Classic June 5-10, 2012 in the company's hometown of Memphis, Tenn.
"As one of the leading golf equipment companies, we are proud to be a part of this important tournament again in 2012 and to host the PGA TOUR right here in our own backyard," says Scott Hennessy, president and CEO of True Temper Sports. "From the famous Hush Ya'll paddles, to our mobile Shaft Lab tour van and finally our much-anticipated Rendezvous on the Range player, caddie and customer lunch, True Temper's distinct mark will be on the tournament throughout the week."
True Temper is the official sponsor of the Hush Ya'll on-course signs which will be used by the marshals during the tournament. While many tournaments use the "Quiet Please" signs, marshals at the Memphis tournament quiet the crowd for the TOUR players using the famous Hush Y'all paddles which have been outfitted for the third year in a row utilizing the world famous Dynamic Gold golf shafts by True Temper as handles.
"During the FedEx St. Jude Classic, we will be doing our best to make the players and their caddies feel right at home here in Memphis," says Hennessy. "From Monday through Wednesday during tournament week, our tour department will be on hand in our mobile Shaft Lab tour van to address any of the player's equipment needs. We will also be hosting our 11th annual Rendezvous on the Range lunch to welcome the TOUR in true southern style."
The Shaft Lab is a custom golf shop on wheels where True Temper tour reps can do a wide range of club work for the best players in the world from building a set of custom clubs from start to finish in 15 minutes to simply adjusting lofts and lies.
During Rendezvous on the Range lunch True Temper teams up with the world-famous Rendezvous restaurant for a cookout right on the range during the practice rounds for players, caddies and True Temper customers.
