True Temper shafts help capture victory at Dubai Desert Classic

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The Dubai Desert Classic winner trusted his game to Dynamic Gold and Project X this weekend to take home the title. The win marked the third-straight victory for shafts by True Temper Sports on the European Tour, effectively sweeping all of the tournaments in the Middle East this season.

The Dubai Desert Classic champion shot five eagles during the tournament and an incredible final round with Dynamic Gold X100 in his irons, Project X Black in his driver and Project X Tour Issue in his 3-wood. The win moved him into the number six position in the Race to Dubai.

"We have seen some great golf on the European Tour so far this season, and the way the winner of the Dubai Desert Classic played this weekend is no exception," said Simon Wilson, PGA and European Tour manager for True Temper Sports. "When it comes to accuracy in your irons, Dynamic Gold has proven it delivers time and time again. For incredible distance and stability, our Project X graphite shafts are really second to none of any shaft available today."
