UST Mamiya PROFORCE VTS Used by Winner of Tour Championship

FORT WORTH, TX – September 24, 2012 – UST Mamiya, maker of the world’s finest carbon fiber golf shafts, reports the winner of the Tour Championship relied on PROFORCE VTS in his hybrid (PROFORCE VTS Black 100 X-flex) to earn his second victory of the year, but more importantly the FedEx Cup.

The winner finished with rounds of 68, 70, 64 and 68 (-10), his second win of the year and fourth career win on the PGA Tour. With this win, he moves into the top 10 world ranking for the first time.

“UST Mamiya wants to congratulate the winner of the Tour Championship,” said Robb Schikner, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “PROFORCE VTS not only helped the winner, but we were also the #1 hybrid shaft in play at the Tour Championship. More and more players are seeing the benefits of our shafts on all tours.”

All UST Mamiya carbon-fiber shafts are made using handcrafted, repeatable production techniques that incorporate world-class engineering and premium-selected raw materials. This combines with tight tolerances, constant taper design and low-resin content to enhance feel during the golf swing.

The company produces a variety of shaft models, including the renowned Proforce and ATTAS lines, which have received significant usage on major professional tours internationally. Paralleling its achievements at the professional level, the company’s shafts have remained the top-selling aftermarket option in the United States the past five years.

Knowing that every golfer who installs a new shaft will also need a grip, UST Mamiya offers a line of premium offerings, with groundbreaking new models being introduced in 2012. They include Tour PC, Soft Touch, Comp DV2 Torsion, Pro DV2 Torsion Cord, and ST1putter grips.
