T1100Project X HZRDUS T1100 Now Available

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (February 20, 2017) -Project X HZRDUS T1100 is now available to the public through True Temper Performance Fitting Centers.

HZRDUS T1100 is the lowest spinning and lowest launching shaft in the HZRDUS family.

“We used T1100G fiber, the strongest fiber available, to build a shaft with a stiff bend profile throughout so that it is the ultimate spin killer for players with the most aggressive tempo,” Don Brown, director of golf innovation and product strategy for Project X said. “HZRDUS T1100 is also counter-balanced which allows for players to add more club length or head mass to achieve more ball speed.”

Since it debuted on the PGA and Tours last year, HZRDUS T1100 has become the most played HZRDUS model and frequently the #1 played driver shaft model. The current world #1 and winner of the Genesis Open plays HZRDUS T1100 in his 3-wood.

HZRDUS T1100 is meticulously hand crafted by certified technicians in the Project X San Diego R&D facility. The shaft features an ultra-premium brilliant, high reflective finish that takes four days from start to finish to apply.

Project X HZRDUS T1100 is available in 65 gram and 75 gram models exclusively through Performance Fitting Centers. MSRP is $450.00.



HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – February 20, 2017 – Srixon and Cleveland Golf congratulate staffer Andrew Putnam for his playoff victory over the weekend at the WEB.COM TOUR Panama Claro Championship in Panama City. After finishing 72 holes tied atop the leaderboard at 13-under-par, Putnam made a 12-foot birdie putt on the first sudden-death hole, the par-4 18th, to record his second career WEB.COM win and continue a hot streak that has him in firm control of the Tour’s money list lead.

“It feels awesome, said Putnam, who has finished fifth, T8 and T11 in three previous WEB.COM starts this season. “I’ve played great in every single event this year and had a chance in a couple of them, just didn’t quite get it done. But it all pays off after this week.”

The 28-year-old Putnam trusted the exceptional distance and tour-validated performance of the new, fifth-generation Srixon Z-STAR XV golf ball. Featuring a redesigned Dual Energetic Gradient Growth core with a larger, softer inner core, the Z-STAR XV generates consistently high ball speed on full shots and enhances greenside spin control with the new Spin Skin coating. Putnam also uses new Cleveland Golf RTX-3 Tour Raw blade wedges (54° V-MG and 60° V-MG), which include three of Cleveland’s most innovative wedge technologies ever for the ultimate short-game control and consistency – Feel Balancing, V Sole grinds and the third-generation Rotex Face.
