THE TPT GOLF SHAFT continues to make it’s presence felt where it goes. It’s next step is the USA, and it’s first stop is the PGA Show next month in Orlando.

The TPT Golf firm based in Renens Switzerland, has now hired some key people to keep the growth and vision of the company moving forward.

“We took our time in making sure we found the perfect fit for each position,” says Sebastian Sebayang, Director of TPT Golf. “These hires are not only highly qualified to fill their roles, but they’re committed to our mission of revolutionizing the golf shaft industry so that golfers can finally achieve their full potential.”

The new technical director is Jeff Meyer a 30+ year veteran with high performance composites. Meyer comes over from Titleist and Aldila.

Meyer says,” five minutes into my first meeting, I understood the advantages of the TPT material processes. The design and manufacturing processes are both different and superior than industry methodologies. Swiss engineering is so fine tuned. With our technology, we can engineer and shaft parameter we want.”

Jon Sinclair will join TPT as it’s USA Technical Advisor. Sinclair has a reputation as being one of the most sought-after experts in capturing and interpeting cutting-edge golf swing data. Sinclair says that,” the consistency we can produce a shaft – TPT is going to change the game of golf. Shaft stability will allow golfers to increase their potential speed.”

To oversee marketing and communications, TPT has linked up with Rooted-Solutions a Detroit company directed by former Golf WRX Editor-in-Chief Zak Kozuchowski. TPT has retained the Mary Beth Lacey a major US based PR firm, that represents several golf related firms.

TPT shafts are already winning tournaments on tour. The TPT 15LKP-LT-LW won back-to-back tournaments on the European Tour, the WGC-HSBC Champions in China and the Turkish Airlines Open (Justin Rose).

The Thin Ply Winding method allows TPT to control the design parameter. Having the ability to control the kick-point, the torque and weight allows for the TPT golf shafts to meet the exact needs of every golfer.

A third victory with the 15LKP-LT-LW driver shaft was recorded at the Indonesian Masters by a margin of eight strokes. The shaft allows for more distance and accuracy through an increased energy transfer, which creates a tighter shot dispersion and the right amount of spin.
