Rifle Shafts Capture Victory at Verizon

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – For the second week in a row, True Temper's Rifle shafts garnered a decisive victory, this time at the Verizon Heritage. True Temper's 16th PGA Tour victory of the season came just one week after Rifle shafts, known for producing tour-winning accuracy and distance shot after shot, won the 2009 Masters Tournament.

The Verizon Heritage champion played Rifle shafts in his irons and won by 10 strokes at historic Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, S.C. He finished at 20-under 264 which broke the 13-year-old scoring record at Harbour Town. Additionally, 90 percent of the Top finishers at the Verizon Heritage played shafts manufactured by True Temper.

"Harbour Town Golf Links is a favorite course for many PGA Tour professionals so it's always fun to win here. But to completely dominate a professional field and win by 10 shots is truly an astonishing feat," says Scott Hennessy, president and CEO of True Temper Sports. "It is no coincidence that many of the world's top-ranked players prefer Project X and Rifle shafts. These shafts provide tighter shot dispersion, better control, greater distance with improved accuracy, and a smooth, yet solid feel at impact."

Project X shafts feature a unique variable taper design with a dedicated taper rate per inch for each shaft in the set. Longer taper rate results in more energy transfer to the ball for a faster and flatter penetrating trajectory. Rifle shafts are built through True Temper's exclusive Frequency Matching process which uses electronic calibration to ensure identical shaft flex from club to club. These stepless steel shafts are available in tapered and parallel irons. For more information on True Temper Sports or True Temper shafts, visit www.truetemper.com.
