PGA Colonial at Crowne Plaza champion Steve Stricker played Project X shafts in his irons and the top 7 money winners all trusted Project X or Rifle shafts. The playoff featured laser accurate shots from Project X and Rifle iron shafts and 300+ yard drives from a driver shafted with the new graphite Project X wood.
“Project X continues to set a high standard for shaft performance and we plan to raise the bar even higher with the new Project X driver and hybrid shafts,” says Don Brown, product development manager and designer of the new shafts. “These new shafts will make their official Tour debut at next week’s St. Jude Classic, though more than 30 top pros are playing the prototypes on tours worldwide.”
In 2009, Project X and Rifle shafts have claimed ten tournament victories, including world-class events such as the Mercedes-Benz Championship, Northern Trust Open, World Golf Championships (WGC) Accenture Match Play, The Honda Classic, Doral Invitational, the Masters Tournament, and now the Crowne Plaza Invitational.
Project X steel shafts feature a unique variable taper design with a dedicated taper rate for each shaft in the set. Longer taper rate results in more energy transfer to the ball for a faster and flatter penetrating trajectory. The introduction of Project X driver and hybrid shafts will allow golfers to benefit from Project X technologies from driver through wedge.
