True Temper Makes History on PGA TOUR , Web.com and European Tours

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Shafts designed and manufactured by True Temper Sports delivered memorable wins on the world stage this week. Dynamic Gold, Project X and Grafalloy set the industry standard for state-of-the-art, high-performance golf shafts with wins at the AT&T National on the PGA Tour, United Leasing Championship on the Web.com Tour and the Irish Open on the European Tour.

The 2012 AT&T National champion made history this week with Dynamic Gold. He shot a consistent 72-68-67-69 (276) to capture his third win on the year — the most of anyone on the PGA TOUR this season — and take the lead in the FedExCup standings. But this win was even more notable as the victory moved the champion into second place on the TOUR list, ahead of Jack Nicklaus and only eight wins shy of the all-time record set by Sam Snead.

Dynamic Gold and Project X teamed up to also make history on the newly renamed Web.com Tour (formerly Nationwide Tour). In the first event under the new name, the 30-year-old United Leasing Championship winner came back from a string of injuries and two surgeries to earn his third career victory. He played Project X Graphite in his driver, 3-wood and hybrid and Dynamic Gold in his irons. Meanwhile on the European Tour, the champion of the Irish Open won his first career victory and was the only player in the field to score under 70 in all four rounds. He was playing Grafalloy ProLite 35 in his driver and 3-wood and Dynamic Gold in his irons.

“We very excited with three victories on three pro tours this weekend, but it’s especially rewarding to see history in the making with the win at the AT&T National,” says Chad Hall, director of product marketing and global tour operations for True Temper Sports. “Accuracy and consistency are true cornerstones to high-performance golf shafts and, if you look at the complete fields of the events this weekend, the vast majority of the players on the PGA, Web.com and European Tours trusted shafts by True Temper more than all other competitors combined.”
