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 32 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.
“I couldn’t be more excited to bring in a product that fits Club Champions brand so well,” says Nick Sherburne, Founder of Club Champion and Dean of Club Champion University. “TPT Golf’s innovation, understanding of market needs and quality couldn’t have our fitters more excited. TPT Golf has been a great partner so far, making sure all Club Champion locations not only have every shaft in the line, but also the proper training to understand the line to fit our clients best. We can’t wait for our clients to experience TPT Golf.”
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 by lowering the retail price of its shafts from $699 to $499.
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.
