True Temper already boasts more than 100 years of providing premium equipment to professionals and amateur golfers.
And for those not too familiar with Accra, it offers products that work for players at every end of the golfing spectrum from recreational juniors and ladies through to PGA Tour professionals.
The golf shaft division now includes True Temper, Project X and Accra brands.
And, according to a company release, the three shaft brands, combined, have been used by 10 of the last 11 men’s major champions.
According to CEO and president of True Sports Jeremy Erspamer: “Given the current aggressive growth rates and continued future expansion across all of our product categories, now is the perfect time to unify our brands and our company under one banner, cementing our position as a leader in performance sports products.
And senior director of marketing and innovation for True Sports Don Brown added: “We are thrilled to add Accra to our performance-enhancing line of shaft brands.
“The wide range of Accra products increases the options we make available within the custom club fitting environment.”
