John Letters is re-introducing its ‘TR47 Challenge’ after its success last year with the slogan ‘47 yards longer or your money back’. The 2.2mm thin face on the TR47 irons with Project X high-end steel shaft and the UST Mamiya low torque grip gives distance and feel, says John Letters. The set also gives the customer the option of the increasingly popular hybrids. The TR47 set comprises nine clubs, with a three and four hybrid and five-iron to sand wedge costing £399.
The range of woods includes 13 and 15 degree options making it easier for many golfers to use a driver. The driver’s beta titanium face combines with a lightweight UST V2 Shaft for distance and forgiveness and costs £149.
More than 500 golfers took the challenge in 2013 at Direct Golf stores and, as Direct Golf’s Chris Clarke explained, not one took up the offer of a refund. “Indeed, we did not have one request for a refund, with everybody finding greater length across their bag with the John Letters TR47 line. The reason the club was so successful was because of its quality. We went with the slogan ‘47 yards longer or your money back’ because we had huge confidence the product could live up to the claim – and so far we’ve been proved correct.”
