Tour Champion’s Winner R.W. Eaks Wins Dick’s Sporting Goods Open with New Image Gold Image Shaft

R.W. Eaks etched his first Tour Champions win using the New Image Gold shaft distributed by Hireko Golf. The Dick’s Open victory caps his 8th top 10 finish on the 2007 Champions Tour. Eaks started playing the New Image Gold Shaft at the Greater Hickory Classic last year and finished second after being edged out in a playoff. Eaks’ driving distance and accuracy have increased since switching to the New Image Gold shafts. The New Image Gold is the premier shaft in the New Image line. This high performance shaft was designed specifically for the golf professional and low handicapper alike. Each shaft has unique aesthetics (no two are identical) and is individually tested for perfection. “We’re proud to distribute the New Image line of shafts and particularly the Gold’s,” states VP of Hireko Marketing Rob Altomonte. “This shaft has it all. Great feel and an extremely responsive tip section. Also, each Gold shaft is labeled with a flex weight and unique serial number to ensure product consistency and craftsmanship.” The New Image Gold shaft is available in Stiff and X-flex. Specs include 2.5º torque, 68 grams in weight (Stiff) and a mid-low ball flight trajectory. The Gold is in stock at a retail price of $89.95 and is available as a component or as a custom golf club assembly upgrade. Visit for more details.
