San Diego, CA – Sept 3rd, 2014 –

The next generation of PenleyTM golf shafts have emerged – and Carter Penley wants players to take him up on his challenge.


Carter Penley, CEO of Penley Research & Development (PRD), is challenging players to make the switch from their current golf shafts – to Penley. “With the development of performance design & manufacturing processes such as the TBARTM (Tip to Butt Aspect Ratio) algorithm and ZONE FLEXTM Characterization, I believe players will see improved results making the switch to Penley golf shafts- so much that I am offering a discount towards my latest design of Penley Shafts” says Carter Penley, CEO of Penley Research & Development.


Carter Penley, with over 30 years of Aerospace and golf shaft design experience, with multiple PGA Tour and Long Drive wins with his designs, after a brief hiatus, formerly of Penley Sports, has returned to the golf industry as Penley Research & Development (PRD). Penley has spent the last couple of years honing his new design processes such as TBARTM and now Zone FlexTM Characterization, to give players a better quality and consistent golf shaft; Players will feel the difference. Penley Shafts are MADE IN THE USA – and all production is overseen by Carter Penley.
