AMORY, Miss. (WTVA) - True Temper has teamed up with River Birch Golf Course in Amory to test new golf shafts.
True Temper, a staple in the Amory and Monroe County communities for decades, makes shafts.

"We'll have a number of shafts they [golfers] have access to, and we will be able to swap out different heads and shafts with the fitting system," River Birch Director of Golf Kehli Bowen said.
The owners of the golf course want to build up the community through the golf course and encourage younger golfers to play. Bowen hopes the partnership will help bring in more people to the community and boost local commerce.
The partnership would allow golfers to not only test True Temper's products but also tour the manufacturing facility in Amory.
"Like a stay and play kind of thing,” Bowen said. “They could play a couple rounds at the course and take a tour of the True Temper plant."
The parties are still working out pricing, but Bowen hopes the partnership will be fully operational by December.
