TPT Red Range Shafts Earn 1st Victory At KLPGA Championship

RENENS, SWITZERLAND — The TPT Red Range earned its first victory at the Korean LPGA Championship, a major on the KLPGA Tour. 

The win marks the first KLPGA win for Hyun Kyung Park, who used a TPT Red Range 18 Hi in her driver. Park recorded three birdies on the back nine en route to her one-stroke victory at Lakewood Country Club in Yangju. 

“Congratulations to Hyun Kyung Park on this important victory,” said TPT Co-Founder Francois Mordasini. “We spent more than 18 months developing the Red Range, and to see it achieve this immediate success gives our team even greater motivation to improve the way golf shafts are made.”

The Red Range

All Red Range shafts are created with Continuous Fiber, TPT’s patent-pending automated shaft manufacturing process that continuously winds its carbon-fiber prepreg from tip to handle around the shaft to unlock a new level of performance and consistency. 

With Continuous FIber, TPT can produce golf shafts without seams or a spine, both of which are present in all conventional carbon fiber shafts and reduce performance and consistency. 

“Continuous Fiber means that our shafts are made with one start and one stop,” says TPT Co-Founder Gerard Gautier. “We don’t have over-layers. We don’t have gaps. And we can do this because unlike our competitors, we’re not making shafts by hand. We’re using automation.” 

The Automatic Improvement Guarantee

The Red Range introduces the Automatic Improvement Guarantee, a statement of the confidence from the company that its Red Range shafts will offer golfers longer drives, straighter drives, and more confidence when fit by a TPT Authorized Fitter. 

The Automatic Improvement Guarantee is simple. If golfers aren’t seeing the same improved performance with a TPT shaft that they saw in their fitting, they can return it to their participating TPT Authorized fitter within 30 days of purchase for a return or exchange. 

TPT Authorized Fitters

Red Range shafts ($500) are available in 12 models that will meet the needs of the vast majority of golfers — from the strongest golfers in the world to juniors and seniors. 

They’re available exclusively through a network of more than 200 Authorized Fitters located across the world. Golfers can locate an Authorized Fitter near them at tptgolf.com/get-fit/

RENENS, SWITZERLAND — TPT Golf is expanding its extensive premium driver shaft lineup to include the new 20 LKP-MT-SW, which is available with a limited-edition Evian Pink label.

The 20 Series is TPT Golf’s softest profile to date, expanding the company’s shaft lineup to meet the needs of slow-swing-speed golfers around the world who are greatly underserved in the premium golf shaft space.

Our goal at TPT Golf from the start was to ensure that golfers of all abilities had access to the best technology and the highest level of performance. The 20 Series gets us a step closer to our goal.”

Like all of TPT Golf’s shafts, the 20 Series is created with the company’s patented Thin-Ply Winding Method, an automated manufacturing process that uses advanced machinery and robotics to eliminate human error from the shaft-making process and deliver more optimized and consistent results.

The Thin-Ply Winding Method was developed from the ground up with the knowledge of TPT Golf’s parent company, NTPT, a Switzerland-based technology and composites firm that’s renowned for its cutting-edge materials.

20 Series shafts have a Low Kick Point (LKP), Mid-Torque (MT), Standard Weight (SW) design that’s recommended for golfers with driver swing speeds between 60-90 mph, however, a professional fitting is essential for golfers to determine the best golf shaft for their game. For this reason, TPT Golf shafts are sold exclusively through a network of more than 200 Authorized Fitters. located across the world. Golfers can locate an Authorized Fitter near them ​here​.

“Our extensive shaft R&D process always starts and finishes with on-course testing at The Evian Resort Golf Club, and that’s possible because of a special relationship we have with Evian,” Sebayang said. “We wanted to honor Evian’s support of TPT Golf with this very special release in Evian Pink.”

In total, 143 Evian Pink shafts will be made commercially available to honor the Evian’s availability in 143 countries around the world. Evian Pink shafts will be sold for the same price as other TPT Golf shafts ($499 USD) while supplies last.
