UST Mamiya Shafts Used by Winner of 112th U.S. Open Golf Championship

FORT WORTH, TX – June 18, 2012 – UST Mamiya, maker of the world’s finest carbon fiber golf shafts – reports the winner of the 112th U.S. Open Golf Championship relied on PROFORCE AXIVCORE in his driver (69 Tour Red X-flex) and PROFORCE VTS in his 3-wood and 5-wood (85g Tour Black X-flex) to earn his first major championship and 3rd PGA Tour victory.

The champion carded rounds of 72, 73, 68 and 68 (+1) to get his first win of the year and more importantly, his first major on Father’s Day. The win catapults him to 9th place in the FedEx Cup Points Race and #5 in the Official World Golf Ranking.
