World #7 Switching to Scandium e21 Shafts for Final Major of the Year

TORONTO--(Marketwire - August 9, 2007) - Element 21 Golf Company ("e21") (OTCBB: EGLF) (FRANKFURT: BJQ) the manufacturer of advanced Scandium Alloy golf and fishing equipment, is pleased to report that the 7th ranked player in the world has switched to e21's Eagle One Scandium shafts and will be playing them this week at the 89th PGA Championship being played August 9-12 at the Southern Hills Country Club, in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

This offers a first PGA Tour player reference to a proprietary ShockBlok™ technology at work, notably reducing hand and elbow injuries. ShockBlok™ works by lowering impact forces on hands, elbows, shoulders and upper body by 70% over impact shock produced by steel shafts, Freeing the body for better golf and possibly extending the money careers of PGA professionals.

The player is currently in 2nd place on the PGA money list putting him behind only Tiger Woods in the 2007 Fed-Ex Cup standings. In 2007, he has had two first place finishes and has a total of 31 PGA tour wins, including two PGA Championships. He also has amassed 21 international wins and over $53 million in PGA Tour winnings during his illustrious career.

It has been reported in the press ( - that this player used e21's Eagle One scandium shafts in the World Golf Championship event -- The Bridgestone Invitational -- and was quoted as saying:

"They're better than I thought. They're a little hard to get adjusted to. But they're good. I like them. I started using a remake of my hump shafts and amazingly they had a big dent in every one of my irons last week. They took them out this week and put in new ones. And this Scandium guy came along and said, 'Why don't you try this shaft?' And I said, 'Well, they feel OK.'" After playing with the scandium shafts, the player was quoted as saying that he experienced less vibration -- and, therefore, less strain -- in his elbows when he hits the new scandium shafts. He has suffered from an ongoing elbow injury, so the new scandium shafts help keep that from flaring up.

"This player has a reputation as being the hardest working professional golfer hitting thousands of golf balls on the practice range daily and playing in numerous events worldwide each year," stated Dr. Nataliya Hearn, e21's CEO. "The medical benefits of scandium engineering are being confirmed on Tour. There is no doubt that that our vibration dampening 'ShockBlok™' technology and our shafts' superior accuracy and distance can help support this player's legendary practice routine and his record for winning golf tournaments."

In North America the tournament will air August 9 and 10 on TNT 2:00-8:00 PM EDT, and on August 11 and 12 on TNT from 11:00-2:00 PM EDT and on CBS Sports from 2:00-7:00 PM EDT.

About The e21 Eagle One Scandium Shafts:
