MIAMI – Paul McGinley capped off his 2005 season with a win at the Volvo Masters on Sunday, edging out the best players on the European Tour with a bag full of SST PURE aligned clubs.
McGinley’s final-round 67 on Sunday gave him the Masters title and a record-tying four-round total of 274. "This one means a huge, huge amount to me," he said. "I am proud to have won here, competing against the top 60 players on The European Tour."
After having his entire set of TaylorMade clubs PUREd this year at the NEC Invitational, McGinley finished in the top six in four of his last six events, winning more than â?åÂ1.4 million in that stretch. His boost from SST PUREd clubs rivals that of Retief Goosen, whose win at the International earlier this year coincided with the PUREing of his clubs. All told, players who have had their shafts PUREd this year have won more than $50 million on the PGA Tour in 2005.
Using proprietary computer software and sensitive data-acquisition sensors, the SST PURE shaft alignment process analyzes the structural irregularities that exist to some degree in every golf shaft and locates the shaft’s most stable orientation. By assembling the club with the shaft in its PURE orientation, off-line bending and twisting of the shaft are minimized and impact repeatability on the center of the clubface by the golfer improves up to 51 percent. The process can be performed on existing clubs, new clubs or new shafts – steel or graphite – from most major manufacturers. To date, more than 200 players on the PGA Tour have experienced the benefit of SST PURE Shaft Alignment.
Headquartered in Miami, Strategic Shaft Technologies, LC, was founded by Dick Weiss, who was the creator of the SST PURE® process. The patented SST PURE process of club assembly – deemed in compliance with USGA standards – locates each shaft’s irregularities and aligns the shaft to neutralize them, so that each club bends in the direction it should – straight down the target line. Upon having his shafts SST PURE aligned, a player receives a personalized computer printout confirming the process and an SST PURE shaft label for every shaft that has been PUREd. The SST PURE process of golf shaft alignment is available at SST PURE licensees around the United States and internationally.
