True Temper Continues Sweep of European Tour

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Through innovative engineering and true performance, True Temper Sports has chalked up one of the most unprecedented and ongoing success stories in modern golf. Shafts designed and manufactured by True Temper have swept the European Tour, winning all 17 of the Tour events to date in the 2012 season.

Most recently, the winner of the 2012 BMW PGA Championship in Surrey, England, played Dynamic Gold in his irons and DG Spinner in his wedges. His four-stroke victory reclaimed his Number One position in the world and further reinforces True Temper as the No. 1 shaft manufacturer in golf.

“The BMW PGA Championship is the biggest event on The European Tour so we’re very excited that this year’s champion played True Temper shafts, and winning every European Tour event for 17 straight weeks is an amazing testimonial to the accuracy, distance and consistency of True Temper shafts,” says Chad Hall, director of product marketing and global tour operations for True Temper Sports. “Professional golfers in Europe, as well as America, Asia and elsewhere, only play shafts that provide true and consistent performance shot after shot, and True Temper shafts are played by more pros around the world than all other steel shaft brands combined.”

The Number One selling shaft in golf, Dynamic Gold is preferred by skilled players seeking a low, penetrating ball flight. Dynamic Gold has earned world-renown respect as the winningest shaft in the history of the game. The DG Spinner’s unique design incorporates a special recessed section at the grip exit that decreases launch angles by as much as three degrees and increases the ball’s spin rate by as much as 700+ rpm.
