TPT Golf™ Celebrates 10th Professional Victory with KLPGA Win

My sincerest apologies go out to both TPT Golf and Mary Beth Lacy of golf public relations firm Mary Beth Lacy Inc for getting this release so tardy.

Regardless, it has been a fantastic year for TPT Golf. The Switzerland-based composites company not only creates premium golf shaft offerings utilizing “Thin-Ply Technology”. Their revolutionary technology has been used in the development of the light body work found on Formula I race cars, skis, snowboards, satellites and more.

The year of accolades for TPT Golf began in late 2017 when Justin Rose (now OWGR  #1) won in back to back weeks. Early in the 2018 season, Jason Day would win the 2018 Farmers Insurance Open using a shaft from TPT Golf in his driver. A feat that Day would repeat in early May at the Wells Fargo Championship. If that wasn’t enough, TPT Golf would power “superstar on the rise” Bryson DeChambeau to back to back wins during the end of the year FedEx Cup Playoffs on the PGA Tour. Recently, TPT Golf saw their 10th victory on professional golf tours worldwide.

I’ve had the pleasure of covering TPT Golf for over a year now and in this time I’ve been a part of their launch (2017), I’ve tested and reviewed their shafts and I’ve watched them grow and see celebrated success . Please see the attached press release for more information.

RENENS, SWITZERLAND — TPT Golf earned its 10th professional victory in the last 11 months this weekend. The win also gives the Switzerland-based, ultra-premium golf shaft manufacturer wins on seven different worldwide professional tours.

 

TPT Golf’s latest victory came on the LPGA of Korea Tour (KLPGA) at the All for You Championship, where the champion used a TPT Golf 18 MKP-MT-SW shaft in her driver.

 

“This is another very important win for TPT Golf,” says TPT Golf Director Sebastian Sebayang. “We launched TPT Golf in South Korea just two months ago, and we’re proud to see our technology making an immediate impact.”

A New Breed of Golf Shaft, A New Level of Performance

 

A Former Mini-Tour Player’s Incredible Improvement With TPT Golf

All TPT Golf shafts are created with “Thin-Ply Technology,” the process the company uses to manufacture thin and precise carbon fiber prepreg material that’s as light as 15 grams per square meter — four-times thinner than a human hair and one-quarter the weight of a page of paper.

 

Just as importantly, TPT Golf shafts are created with a patent-pending, automated manufacturing process the company developed called the “Thin-Ply Winding Method.” It’s this innovation that allows TPT Golf to position its prepreg in the exact locations and orientations necessary to create a new level of performance in a golf shaft.

 

With a properly fit TPT Golf shaft, golfers are able to contact the sweet spot more often due to its more axially consistent design. They will also likely swing TPT Golf shafts a little faster because of their optimized bend profiles. It’s this combination of more consistent impacts and TPT Golf’s optimized bending profiles that results in significant distance gains and a tighter dispersion.

 

TPT Golf shafts are currently available at more than 175 Authorized Fitters across the world, including all Club Champion locations. Golfers can locate a TPT Golf Authorized Fitter near them. Use this link:  https://tptgolf.com/where-to-buy/
