RENENS, SWITZERLAND -- PGA Tour Rookie Paul Barjon earned his first top-10 finish on the PGA Tour at The American Express trusting a matching set of TPT Red Range shafts: a 14 Lo Driver Shaft, a 14 Lo Fairway Wood Shaft, and a 14 Lo Hybrid Shaft.
“We want to congratulate Paul Barjon on his first top-10 finish on the PGA Tour,” said TPT Chairman François Mordasini. “We’ve been proud to support him as he’s made his way from the PGA Tour Canada to the Korn Ferry Tour and now the PGA Tour over the last three seasons. His fast rise through the ranks is a testament to the consistency TPT can bring even the best golfers in the world simply by changing to a more precise shaft.”
TPT shafts have been used to win more than 30 tournaments on 13 leading tours since 2016. The Red Range shafts continue to grow in popularity on the PGA Tour and were also used by Jason Day and Sebastian Munoz at The American Express.
Barjon was the first player to use the recently released TPT Red Range Hybrid Shafts last year on the Korn Ferry Tour, earning his PGA Tour card with a Red Range 14 Lo Driver Shaft, 14 Lo Fairway Wood Shaft, and 14 Lo Hybrid Shaft.
“At the end of the day we look at numbers,” Barjon said. “And with how straight my TPT shafts are, it’s a no-brainer. At the end of the day, my shafts have a similar feel, and that’s what I’m looking for as a player. I strongly believe that TPT gives me an advantage against other players.”
