Spotted: True Temper Dynamic Gold 115 wedge shafts

Published

on

We spotted new True Temper Dynamic Gold 115 wedge shafts at the 2017 FedEx St. Jude Classic. The shafts, which are likely to measure around 115 grams based on the nomenclature, are designed as lightweight options for golfers who are already playing lightweight irons shafts, according to a True Temper representative.

As iron shafts are trending lighter in today’s game — even on the professional ranks — it’s only right that shaft companies offer lighter-weight wedge shafts to help bridge the gap in weight between irons and wedges. True Temper itself recently released Dynamic Gold 120 shafts for those who want a lighter feel, but still want the classic True Temper performance.

According to True Temper, the Dynamic Gold 115 shafts will be for those who have iron shafts measuring under 110 grams.

“The DG 115 wedges are for players using lighter weight iron shafts (<110gr) that want DG performance but don’t want to have the large shaft weight gap to standard DG,” said a True Temper representative in our forums.

    I guess I am missing something with this article and your comment about heavier graphite shafts. Where in the article does it mention these are made from graphite? They look to be stepped steel to me.

    Seems like True Temper playing catch up and copying some of what Nippon has to offer. This looks really close to the Nippon 115 wedge shaft. Also funny how True Temper released the Dynamic Gold 120, much like the Modus Tour 120 which has been available for a couple years, bet the profile is pretty similar as well. Innovation at its best by the top steel shaft company in the country.

    Well you keep asking questions, and that’s good, that you show how very little you really know.
    Graphite shafts a scam? What an eejit comment. Lets see you fit my 75 year old mother with the old DG S300 steel shafts in her driver and compare that to the new 35 gram graphite shaft and see which one she can swing the best. Got it? See, there is no scam. You’re just clueless. Very disrespectful and childish, you are.

      By only looking at Tour players and your better players you are only looking at a VERY small sample size of the entire golf market. For a lot of aging golfers (which are keeping the golf industry alive) graphite is a necessity., not only for its lightweight properties which allow them to achieve more distance with their slower swing speeds but also for the vibration reduction properties which helps relieve pain in their hands on every shot they hit.

      Even looking at better golfers, all the way up to tour players, Sneds and Kuch both play graphite iron shafts in a middleweight class with the Aerotech SteelFiber 95cw shafts. Although a compromise between full graphite and full steel shafts, the Aerotech provides different launch characteristics that fit these players swings the best.

Cracked driver forces Dustin Johnson to use two 3-woods at Liberty National

Published

on

Dustin Johnson shot a round of 1-under par at Liberty National on Thursday, and under the circumstances, it was one of his best under-par rounds of the year.

The 37-year-old encountered adversity in New Jersey when he noticed a crack in the crown of his driver right before his round. With no replacement, DJ had a 3-wood retrieved from his car, which made its way into his bag on the second hole. 

Explaining his setup from then on, DJ told the media

“I’ve got a 5-wood that I use for my 3-wood. It goes the distance I want it to. But I had a strong 3-wood (14.5 degrees) in my car, so it helped a little bit … the first time I hit it was on 8. Just, I hadn’t hit it. It was brand new. So I hit it down the middle on 8, hit a good one, hit a good shot on 9. I hit it nicely, though, with it.”

Johnson gained half a stroke off the tee despite not having his trusty driver in his bag, and he believes that even if the 3-wood wasn’t retrieved from his car, he’d have been just fine: “I would have figured out a way. I figured out a way to shoot a decent score.”

As for Friday’s round, expect to see DJ with a driver as Keith Sbarbaro, TaylorMade’s Tour rep, has come to the American’s aid: “I’ve got a couple heads that I’m going to go try to hit. Keith got me a couple heads.”

The extra 3-wood wasn’t the only big change in Johnson’s bag on Thursday either, who decided to sub in his old TaylorMade Spider, having been playing a blade-style gamer in recent weeks.

“I switched back to the Spider right before the round. I’ve been using my blade for a while. I was hitting some putts on the putting green this morning, and it didn’t feel too good, so I went and grabbed my Spider.”
