True Temper Sports celebrates victory at FedEx St. Jude Classic

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- From its corporate headquarters overlooking the #2 green at TPC Southwind, True Temper Sports celebrated another hometown victory at the FedEx St. Jude Classic this weekend.

The first-time PGA TOUR winner scored two birdies on the final three holes for a come-from-behind win with Dynamic Gold in his irons and Project X Graphite in his driver. He fended off two tough competitors in the final round on Sunday to win by two strokes and to move to no. 13 in the FedEx Cup standings.

"A win on the PGA TOUR is always great. A win in your own backyard is even more special especially when the champion has a track record of success in the state of Tennessee from his high school days," said Scott Hennessy, president and CEO of True Temper Sports. "Being a part of the FedEx St. Jude Classic is a part of True Temper's history, from our annual player's lunch on Tuesday to our sponsorship of the famous Hush Y'all paddles used by the marshals and finally a victory on Sunday."
