Jin Young Ko earned her first major championship victory at the ANA Inspiration, continuing her dominance on the LPGA Tour with TPT Golf. With the win, Ko has risen to the No. 1 spot in the Rolex Rankings with TPT Golf’s 18 LKP-MT-SW shafts in her driver, 3 wood, and 5 wood
“Congratulations to Jin Young Ko on her first major championship victory,” says TPT Golf Director Sebastian Sebayang. “She’s without question the best golfer in the world right now, and we’re so happy to be a part of her success as she plays the finest golf of her young, promising career.”
TPT Golf is a division of NTPT, a Switzerland-based composites firm that that develops cutting-edge materials. The company has a history of disruptive innovation across multiple high-performance industries such as F1 racing, snow sports, aerospace, luxury watches, and yacht racing.
TPT Golf was launched in 2017 after four years of research into golf shaft performance and manufacturing processes that culminated in the creation of the company’s pioneering, patent-pending, automated golf shaft manufacturing technologies: Thin-Ply Technology® and the Thin-Ply Winding Method.
These revolutionary technologies eliminate the inconsistencies found in conventional graphite shafts, enabling TPT Golf to create perfectly concentric golf shafts with fully optimized profiles that set new performance standards for golfers of all swing speeds and abilities.
The 18 LKP-MT-SW used by Ko offers a low-kick-point (LKP), mid-torque (MT) design that’s highly stable despite its light weight of 55 grams. It’s one of TPT Golf’s most popular profiles because of its ability to fit a wide range of golfers — from the best LPGA players to amateur golfers looking to fully optimize their game.
TPT Golf shafts are currently available at more than 200 TPT Golf Authorized Fitters located around the world. Golfers can locate their nearest TPT Golf Authorized Fitter here.
