TPT Golf Expands Authorized Fitter Network with Club Champion

RENENS, SWITZERLAND – TPT Golf has vastly expanded the availability of its revolutionary golf shafts through an agreement with premium club fitter Club Champion. The move brings the Swiss-based golf shaft manufacturer’s full product line to all 30 current Club Champion locations.

“With a TPT Golf shaft, golfers are going to create more distance. They’re going to improve their accuracy. They’re going to gain more consistency. But first, they must be properly fit for our shafts,” says TPT Golf Director Sebastian Sebayang. “Through this agreement with Club Champion, we’re bringing the next level of performance to the vast majority of U.S. golfers while maintaining the high fitting standards that guarantee the full benefit of our technology.”

TPT Golf shafts are available exclusively through the company’s worldwide network of Authorized Fitters, each of which has been vetted by TPT Golf’s team. In recent months, TPT Golf has worked closely with Club Champion to ensure all its master fitters and builders are trained to optimize performance with TPT Golf’s 11 distinct shaft models.

In only 13 months since its official launch, TPT Golf shafts have been used to earn four professional wins on the PGA Tour, European Tour, Asian Tour and the World Golf Championships.

Key to TPT Golf’s success is its Thin-Ply Technology, an automated shaft manufacturing process that overcomes the inconsistencies of conventional golf shafts. The pioneering technology allows TPT Golf to create perfectly concentric golf shafts that are optimized for every type of golfer.

In the last year, TPT Golf has invested heavily in its cutting-edge manufacturing equipment and shifted to bulk purchasing of the highest-quality shaft materials. The decisions were made to allow TPT Golf to produce its shafts in larger quantities, and as a result, make its products more accessible to golfers around the world.

Club Champion is the No. 1 premium club fitter, builder and retailer of the best brands in golf, offering more than 35,000 hittable head and shaft combinations in each of its locations to help golfers find the perfect clubs for their unique swing. The fast-growing, Chicago-based company plans to expand to as many as 40 locations before the end of 2018. All new locations will stock TPT Golf’s full product line.

Golfers can request a Club Champion fitting at clubchampion.com. They can also schedule a fitting by calling their preferred Club Champion location directly.

adidas Golf Unveils New Models for Flagship TOUR360

CARLSBAD, CA – New models are here for adidas’ most iconic shoe in golf. Today adidas Golf announced new members to the TOUR360 lineup – the TOUR360 Knit and TOUR360 EQT BOA. Both embody the performance standards that set the TOUR360 apart from any shoe in the market, while still bringing new technologies that make each shoe unique. 

The newest of the two models, the TOUR360 Knit, brings adidas’ Primeknit technology to the flagship shoe. The all-Primeknit upper offers golfers an unmatched aesthetic when it comes to style, but unseen benefits are the breathability and stretch that it gives players for even more comfort and performance. The traditional collar opening is also replaced with a sock-like, rib-knit material, providing golfers superior comfort, no matter how many holes they play. Through advanced construction techniques, the shoe also offers a one-year waterproof guarantee, something unparalleled when it comes to Primeknit technology.

For players interested in BOA® technology, the TOUR360 EQT BOA changes the game by offering the most-advanced BOA closure system on the market. The IP1 incremental pull-and-push system allows players even more customizable adjustability, meaning they can get dialed-in to their exact foot shape to keep them even more locked-in throughout the round. The key feature that sets the TOUR360 EQT BOA apart is that this system allows for tightening around both the midfoot and entire heel of the shoe, providing unmatched stability throughout the golf swing. 

“By taking our TOUR360 formula and incorporating both Primeknit and BOA technology in revolutionary ways, we’re able to offer new and fresh looks that extend our TOUR360 franchise,” said Masun Denison, global footwear director, adidas Golf. “Both models are a mixture of style and functionality, while still carrying the superior technology that players everywhere come to expect from the TOUR360 name.”
