Grafalloy Blue Wins Tour Championship by Coca-Cola and FedEx Cup
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (September 23, 2013) — Playing phenomenal golf, the winner of the 2013 Tour Championship by Coca-Cola went wire-to-wire to capture the title as well as the FedExCup.
With the new Grafalloy Blue in his driver, 3-wood and 4-wood, the champion played a career-defining final round at East Lake for 2-under par 68 and a three shot victory. He is the first European to ever win both the Tour Championship and the FedExCup—a distinction that netted him $11.44 million on Sunday and a move to number four in the Official Work Golf Rankings.
“This was a fantastic end to the FedExCup playoffs and it’s great to see a player who has continued to gain momentum throughout the season win it,” said Chad Hall, director of product marketing and global tour operations for True Temper Sports. “The champion has been a long-time Grafalloy Blue player, a shaft specifically designed for golf’s stronger swingers. Our new for 2013 Grafalloy Blue features the same performance benefits as the original while being constructed with the most advanced materials available today.”
