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/

Fall Golf, Course Set-up’s on TOUR and The 2018 Ryder Cup

It’s a great time of the year. Pumpkin Spice is en vogue (although I get tired of it by the second week of September). Members of golf clubs that I’ve worked at are already thinking of their annual “Snowbird migration”. Meanwhile, the residents of regions affected by the annual influx are also thinking about it…For different reasons.

Fall golf at Byrncliff in 2014.

With a show of hands.. who loves fall golf? I know that I do and it sucks that stroke recovery is likely going to prevent me from partaking in playing this fall.. The weather is fantastic with the temperatures being near perfection. Gone are the days of oppressive heat. The fairways aren’t nearly as busy and getting in 18-36 holes is a breeze. Of course, there’s the added benefit of fall foliage. Is there a prettier time of the year to go golfing? The reds, oranges and yellows make you feel like you’re golfing amongst a fire. Even the smell in the air is just a little different. Fall is also the time when superintendents are aerating, top-dressing and fertilizing their greens. Yes, it might be a pain in the arse putting on those surfaces but just remember. A little misery now means that your greens will survive the winter and be ready for you in the spring. Thank your superintendent and greens staff today.

A necessary part of golf.

The 2018 Ryder Cup was just contested this past weekend and a huge congratulations goes out to Team Europe. The European side played some beautiful golf and their victory was convincing to say the least. While I will refrain from using the term “bloodbath” it wasn’t close. The Europeans (Captained by Thomas Bjorn) cruised to a 17.5 to 10.5 victory powered by the likes of Tommy Fleetwood, Francesco Molinari, Ian Poulter, Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia, Jon Rahm, Justin Rose, Alex Noren et al. The European team simply looked like that… a team. Something that the American team failed to achieve especially amid the aftermath of the defeat. Patrick Reed was busy pointing fingers and while I love the fact that he’s not a “spit and polish” kind of guy you never point fingers. Win and lose as a “team” right?! Finger pointing at the Ryder Cup is not unprecedented. Who remembers when Phil Mickelson pointed his finger at Captain Tom Watson in 2014? Wasn’t that also the year when “The Panel” was set up after an embarrassing defeat to ensure that it never happened again? Maybe I’m mistaken. Also, there were reports of an apparent incident between Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson.at the after party where they had to be separated. Either way, there are bigger things to get into a huff over and in the grand scheme of things. Say what you will… the Euros dominated in every facet of the competition. Namely, hitting fairways and greens. Which brings me to my next point.

All over social media I’ve seen it said. The difference was in how the golf course was set up. On the PGA Tour golf courses are generally set up too easy. Everything is lush and pristine. A missed fairway simply isn’t penalized. While the American side was “chock full” of the sort of player referred to as “Bomb and Gouge” the Europeans were not. Accuracy was the name of the game as it always is and should be. The American team was ill-suited to succeed at Le Golf National. Sure there was a ton of talent and “big boppers” on their team. However, if you’re unable to score from the thicker, graduated rough when you miss the narrowed fairway the battle is already lost. Here’s a news flash. If you’re new to my site I have long said that the answer to the insanely low scores on tour is not the golf ball and rolling it back. Protect the integrity of the game by protecting the golf course architect and the golf course itself. Let the superintendents of host venues on TOUR have “fun”. Grow the golf course out! Make the fairways narrow, punish a missed fairway with thicker rough, firm up the greens and by all means water the living Hell out of the fairways to eliminate roll. These guys will torch a “resort course” all day long and that’s how these courses are set-up. Wake up PGA Tour and the USGA. If you truly want to compete and win the Ryder Cup and not be lambasted… make your tournament courses tougher.

Until The Next Tee!!
