CHATSWORTH, Calif. -- Driven to win, the Alpha C830.2 driver was used by 2003 World Long Drive Champion Eric Jones to win both the Senior and Open divisions at the 2006 Players Tour Orlando Stop. “The Alpha driver gives me the extra distance and consistency I need, and that gives me a great deal of confidence off the tee, especially in the windy, difficult conditions that we faced in this tournament”, says Jones. “Alpha technology has always delivered for me.” Since entering the sport in 2003, the Alpha C830.2 driver has been the sole driver of choice for Jones. He used it to secure the 2003 RE/Max Senior World Long Drive Championship title, finish 3rd in the 2004 World Long Drive Championship, and capture the 2004 LDA Tour Senior Rookie of the Year honors.
Jones drove well over 300 yards against over 30mph head winds to beat 3 past Open Division World Champions. “We are truly excited for Eric not only because he won both the Open and Senior divisions, but because this victory really exemplifies the talent and technology required to be great in the sport of long drive”, says Paul Pennolino, president of the Players Tour. “And we are grateful to Alpha Golf for designing and developing top performing equipment, thus providing the platform for exciting events such as this.”
A Super-thin SP700 titanium face featuring the maximum coefficient of restitution (COR) working together with a carefully crafted wide body construction allows the Alpha C830.2 driver to deliver maximum distance, accuracy, and control. “The C830.2 technology was built for easier airborne launches, low backspin, and straighter and longer shots”, says Dr. Jim Yeh, president and chief designer of Alpha Golf. “Eric’s win demonstrated that power must be tightly coupled with control and accuracy, and Alpha drivers are designed to deliver just that.”
