True Temper scores PGA, Nationwide wins
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (June 27, 2012) -- True Temper, the world's leading manufacturer of golf shafts, is pleased to announce that its Dynamic Gold and Project X PXi iron shafts chalked up two more victories this weekend. Dynamic Gold, which is well-known as the Number One selling shaft in golf, delivered the win at the Travelers Championship on the PGA Tour, while the company's new PXi shafts earned the top honor at the Wichita Open on the Nationwide Tour.
At the Travelers Championship, the winner began six strokes behind the leaders on Sunday and then fired off eight birdies in a bogey-free round with his Dynamic Gold X100 shafts in Titleist irons. He captured his first win on the PGA Tour and his 62 on Sunday was the lowest score in a final round by a champion on TOUR this season. The victory moved him to No. 23 in the FedExCup standings.
Meanwhile on the Nationwide Tour, the Memphis-born champion also rallied from behind for his second Nationwide Tour victory of the season. Playing PXi shafts in his TaylorMade irons, he became the first player to win multiple titles on the Nationwide Tour this year.
"Two tours, two dramatic come-from-behind victories, and two industry leading shaft designs delivering the wins...this was another great weekend for True Temper," says Chad Hall, director of product marketing and global tour operations for True Temper Sports. "We're particularly excited by the quick success of the PXi iron shafts on the pro tours. It's been remarkable to see, but probably not that surprising based on its superior performance benefits. The PXi is a high-powered combination that produces greater distance and improved feel beyond anything in the game today."
