HandCrafted Reintroduced with New HZRDUS T1100 Shaft

SAN DIEGO, CA – Project X® is reintroducing its HandCrafted line of graphite shafts with the launch of a new HZRDUS T1100 HandCrafted shaft this week at the Valero Texas Open.

HandCrafted shafts are rolled by hand and come directly out of the Project X R&D Lab in San Diego, California.

“We are beyond excited to be able to bring back a HandCrafted line of graphite shafts,” Don Brown, vice president of marketing and innovation for Project X said. “When producing a HandCrafted shaft, each shaft is rolled by hand, painted by hand and the logos are even applied by hand, all in our San Diego lab, ensuring the utmost care is taken along the way.”

The first Project X HandCrafted shaft is the newest addition to the popular HZRDUS T1100 line of shafts.

“Different iterations of our spin killing HZRDUS T1100 line of shafts have long been a go-to for the strongest swingers on Tour and have been trusted by multiple winners this year,” explains David Wilson, senior tour manager of graphite golf shafts for Project X. “Players keep getting faster and shaft stability is now more important than ever. The new HZRDUS T1100 HandCrafted features our new 4D Optimized Carbon technology, a spread tow weave that can be seen down the entire shaft, which provides our most stable golf shaft to date.”

HZRDUS T1100 HandCrafted is a low launch/spin shaft that comes in a flex range of 6.0 and 6.5 in 60g and 70g options and available in 6.5 flex in an 80g model. With the ability to only make a limited number of HandCrafted shafts per day, more information about a retail launch will come later.

Reynolds Lake Oconee Builds on Success of Acclaimed Richland Pointe Community

GREENSBORO, GA – Reynolds Lake Oconee continues to enjoy tremendous success with each release of lakefront, lake access, golf, and wooded homesites in its Richland Pointe community, located between Richland Pointe Village and the soon-to-debut Tom Fazio-designed golf course, Richland.

Since its inception, homesites, custom homes, and cottages in the Richland Pointe neighborhood and Richland Pointe Village have been in high demand. The planned new property releases indicate continued signs of positive growth, with additional homesites and cottages becoming available as the year progresses. 

The community’s hub is Richland Pointe Village, which boasts a 160-seat restaurant with a 52-foot wraparound bar offering lake views and an eclectic menu with global influences. A full-service spa and state-of-the-art wellness and fitness center are in an adjacent building. An outdoor event lawn fronts the lake and two magnificent infinity edge pools seem to fall off into the lake.

Richland Pointe was designed to be easily walkable and connected with the water.

“We like to say it’s ‘where you can truly park and toss your keys away,’” said David Short, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Sales, and Strategic Planning for Reynolds Lake Oconee. “Richland Pointe offers a different kind of lifestyle and experience within our community.The architecture and community design recall simpler times in some of America’s most beloved coastal and lake destinations—all just a short drive from Atlanta.”  

Richland by Tom Fazio

Richland—which opens later this year—seamlessly blends nine new holes with the existing Bluff nine from Fazio’s National golf course with adjacent land distinguished by a creek, large natural boulders, and an existing pond. The land slopes gradually down toward a cove of Lake Oconee with more than 100 feet of elevation change.

Most of the fine grading and shaping is complete, along with the construction of greens, tees, bunkers, and irrigation.  Grass is being installed this spring to begin the grow-in phase.

The addition of Richland will give Reynolds a total of seven championship courses, created by a pantheon of modern architecture, including Fazio, Jack Nicklaus, Rees Jones, Bob Cupp, and Jim Engh.


In addition to the golf course, a new full-service marina—the community’s fifth—is debuting this summer, allowing members easy access to get on the lake, as well as visit the Village by boat for a meal or to spend a day at the spa and the pools.
