MEMPHIS, Tenn. (July 21, 2014) - The winner of the 2014 Open Championship relied on Project X to claim the Claret Jug and secure the third leg of the career Grand Slam this past weekend.

The 25-year-old champion shot 66-66-68 in the first three rounds of the tournament which gave him a six-stroke lead on the final day. Though the gap was closed to just two-strokes, the champion saved par on the final two holes to close with 1-under 71 and finish 17 under par for the week-the fourth-lowest score in the history of The Open Championship.

"A big congratulations to the 143rd Open champion on his third win at a Major," said Scott Hennessy, president and CEO of True Temper Sports. "He played impressively throughout the tournament and gave himself a nice cushion going into Sunday. It really came down to his short game on those final two holes, and we are proud that Project X could provide the precision needed to close out the tournament. The champion has had Project X in the bag throughout his career and during all three of his Major wins. We look forward to watching his pursuit of the career Grand Slam in the years to come!"

Truth in Numbers:

• The Open Championship winner's bag: Project X 7.0 (2-9); Project X 6.5 (PW, SW, LW)
• 117 sets of True Temper shafts in play at The Open Championship
• 3 Majors win with shafts by True Temper in 2014

Project X shafts feature straight taper and short tip sections that provide maximum energy transfer with low spin rates required for penetrating iron shots.
