Northern Trust Open Champion Trusts TPT Golf In Dominating Victory

RENENS, SWITZERLAND – The Northern Trust Open Champion trusted a TPT Golf shaft for his dominating four-shot victory in the first event of the PGA Tour’s FedExCup Playoffs.

The three-time PGA Tour winner averaged 297.6 yards off the tee at Ridgewood Country Club with a TPT Golf Prototype shaft in his driver, tied for fifth longest in the field. The 24-year-old also finished 10th in Strokes Gained Off The Tee en route to his second PGA Tour win of 2018.

“Congratulations to the winner of the Northern Trust Open on his runaway victory,” says TPT Golf Director Sebastian Sebayang. “As a company that was founded to push the known boundaries of shaft technology and performance, we tip our hat to the champion and the spark of innovation he’s brought to the game of golf.”

TPT Golf also earned two other top-25 finishes at the Northern Trust Open; one from the 2018 Masters Champion, who debuted a TPT Golf 15 LKP-LT-LW shaft in his driver and hit 14 of 14 fairways in Round 1 of the championship.

Despite launching its revolutionary line of golf shafts less than two years ago, TPT Golf has already earned eight professional victories on six different tours. The company also scored its first major amateur victory just two weeks ago at the 2018 U.S. Women’s Amateur, where the champion trusted a TPT Golf 17 LKP-MT-SW in her driver.

A New Breed of Golf Shaft, A New Level of Performance

TPT Golf shafts are created with a patent-pending, automated manufacturing process that creates a more precise, higher-performing golf shaft, as well as a perfectly consistent golf shaft each and every time.

The company’s innovative shaft technology was developed from the ground up with the knowledge of its parent company, NTPT, a Switzerland-based technology and composites firm that’s renowned for developing cutting-edge materials that have led to innovations in multiple high-performance industries.

With a properly fit TPT Golf shaft, golfers are able to contact the sweet spot more often due to the shaft’s more axially consistent design. They will also likely swing TPT Golf shafts a little faster because of their optimized bend profiles. It’s this combination of more consistent impacts and TPT Golf’s optimized bending profiles that results in significant distance gains and a tighter dispersion.

In fittings around the world, TPT Golf shafts have been proven to provide golfers of all abilities with additional club head speed and ball speed.

Seasonal colors and geometric patterns are the focus for fashionable fall golf

SAN MATEO, CA- Loudmouth Golf, the worldwide leader in bold and bright golf and sports fan apparel, announces today that they will release 13 new designs in their fall collection. The collection primarily features geometric patterns in a variety of cool fall color tones. Introducing the collection:

“Savage Flamingos”– We took two of our popular designs, Tarzanand Pink Flamingos, and made a winning combination. It’s so wicked, it’s savage!

“Lost Ball”– The beauty of golf is the grass, so walking on the golf course with grass pants is like being one with the course. Lost Ballis so lifelike, you may disappear on the fairway.

“Tee Many Martoonies”– A stylish, retro martini glass drawing with tees through the olives. Tee Many Martoonies is an old saying, but this cocktail design is new, fun and entertaining. You can never have tee many! Cheers!

“Serpentine”– One of our trippiest designs to date. Wearing these may even help you balance your golf swing (hint: look closely). But don’t stare too long or you may end up in a different century.

“Summer of Love”– Where were you in the summer of 1967? This updated hippie design is reminiscent of the most memorable summer in the history of San Francisco.

“Makaha”– This vintage Hawaiian hibiscus pattern is one of Woody’s favorites! It screams ‘leisure’! Fun fact: Makaha is said to be the birthplace of big wave surfing!

“Splatterific” (Coming September 2018) – Wear these pants and you’ll look like you just lost a paintball match. Contrary to that fact, it’s a winning design!

“Power Grid” (Coming September 2018) – Loudmouth headquarters is in the heart of Silicon Valley, so it was only a matter of time before we came out with a tech pattern. Best described as a microchip magnified 5000x. Naturally in Golden State colors.

“Mojito” (Coming September 2018) – Loudmouth Founder and Designer, Woody, is mad for plaid! Plaid is the most traditional pattern in golf, but in true Loudmouth fashion, ours aren’t just red and black. This design features bright, sunshiny colors that is cut on the bias which make this pattern fun and loud.

“Mona” (Coming October 2018) – These pants are so beautiful and original, they’re a work of art.

“Scratch” (Coming October 2018) – Plaid, patchwork and abstract all in the same design. Even if your index is a 23, you’ll be a scratch golfer wearing these.

“Ground Under Repair” (Coming October 2018) – This abstract design looks like part of the fairway when it’s under repair. It’s the golf course in a blender – water, green and sand.

“Blue Chip” (Coming November 2018) – For the symmetry lovers! This pattern and color combination is completely new to Loudmouth. Wearing these will make you so sharp, your fashion AND golf stock will rise!

“Geometric patterns were some of my very first Loudmouth designs and are still my favorite to create and wear,” says Loudmouth Golf Founder & Designer, Woody. “We know there are customers who love wildly-colored old-school patterns, so this collection includes some of that, while offering flamingos, cocktails and flowers; A little something for everybody.”

The Fall 2018 Collection will be printed on StretchTech Poly fabric, the new staple for all Loudmouth apparel. This performance fabric is wrinkle free, shrink free, and color-fade resistant, ensuring the item color stays vibrant and always looks great. The collection will be available in stock in men’s pants, shorts, women’s skorts, and mini shorts.

  1. The Jumbomax Tour XL grips Bryson uses are the first ones that finally feel right for me as I have 8″+ hands. Finally no more death grip to hold on.
