James Hahn Wins the 2016 Wells Fargo Championship – What We Learned

pxgJames Hahn’s win Sunday was a testament to what we all should learn as golfers…NEVER GIVE UP!  Well, it is not like he struggled for 8 years before a win, but missing 8 cuts in a row before the win at the Wells Fargo Championship is a testament to perseverance and commitment.  Even after a devastating three putt on the 18th hole, Hahn was able to pull it together for the playoff.  This is especially rewarding as James Hahn changed a lot of clubs in his bag when he was signed by Parsons Extreme Golf (PXG).  He kept his trusty Vokey SW and LW but everything else in his bag was PXG, including a new Milled gap wedge.   As we know, golf is truly a game of confidence so getting confidence over every club in your bag is critical to success.  The mix of shafts and heads in his WITB also shows that there are some changes players are making to be more consistent in their shot making.  The Project X LZ Steel 125 shafts in his irons have a firm mid section and penetrating ball flight for stronger players.  The Project X LZ steel shafts are not available to the public yet, but we will be testing them in the next few weeks.  Aldila had a strong presence in the top end of the bag (driver, 3 wood and 17 degree hybrid) but True Temper had the lock on the irons and wedges.  Again, if you look at the confidence James had going into the playoff hole, you know he was ready to win again on the PGA Tour.  Congratulations, James.  And congrats to PXG, Aldila , Project X and True Temper for their solid performance.
