Dynamic finish for Tiger Woods


Tiger Woods claimed his 69th PGA Tour victory this past week at the Buick Open playing True Temper’s Dynamic Gold X100 steel shafts in his irons. Nine of the top 10 finishers at the Buick played True Temper shafts, as did Fred Funk, who shot a tournament-record 20-under par to win the U.S. Senior Open.

Funk, one of the most accurate drivers in PGA Tour history, hit 84 percent of his fairways at the U.S. Senior Open with his TaylorMade Burner 09 driver (9.5 degrees). Funk also played TaylorMade Rescue hybrids (16 and 19 degrees), Tour Preferred irons (4-PW) and rac TP wedges (54 and 58 degrees).

Some other notable what’s in the bag information from this weekend: Tiger’s win at the Buick Open was the fifth by a Nike Golf player on the PGA Tour since June 21, a streak which includes two major titles (Lucas Glover at the U.S. Open; Stewart Cink at the Open Championship); Catriona Mathew played the new 2009 ProV1x ball for the first time in competition in capturing the Ricoh Women’s British Open for her first major championship; and Greg Chalmers played a new set of yet-to-be released Titleist CB irons in tying for second (at 17 under) behind Woods in the Buick Open.
