MEMPHIS, Tenn. (June 6, 2013) - True Temper Sports, the number one golf shaft manufacturer in the world, is proud to announce the company's continued support of the FedEx St. Jude Classic June 6-9, 2013 in the company's hometown of Memphis, Tenn.
For a fourth consecutive year, 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 fourth year in a row utilizing the world famous Dynamic Gold golf shafts by True Temper as handles.
"It is an honor to be a part of this important tournament again in 2013 and to host the PGA TOUR right here in our own backyard," said Scott Hennessy, president and CEO of True Temper Sports. "St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is an important part of the local and global community, so any time we can support their cause while also giving back to the PGA TOUR it is a win-win for everyone."
True Temper kicked off the week in true southern style by hosting the 12th annual Rendezvous on the Range lunch for players, caddies and customers. True Temper and the Memphis-based Rendezvous Restaurant set up grills right off the range and prepared the restaurant's signature dishes, including ribs, barbecue and sausage and cheese during Tuesday's practice rounds.
"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," said Hennessy. "Over the years, it has been exciting to see the Rendezvous on the Range grow into an anticipated event for the PGA TOUR players during the season."
With manufacturing facilities and offices located throughout the country and the world, True Temper retains the largest market share globally in golf shafts. While True Temper offers several brands with many unique models, the Dynamic Gold and Project X brands dominate many of the headlines from the world golf tours. The company markets a complete line of golf shafts and performance sports products in more than 30 countries throughout the world. True Temper Sports proudly employs 1,000 individuals in ten facilities located in the United States, Europe, Japan, China and Australia.
