‘Big Easy’ Hands UST Its Third Straight PGA TOUR Victory

FORT WORTH, Texas — Following victories at the 2007 Masters and Verizon Heritage, UST® (United Sports Technologies) dominated the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and claimed its third PGA TOUR win in three weeks.

More than just another victory in the Big Easy, high-performance UST shafts demonstrated the accuracy and consistency that pro players prefer. Not only did this year’s Zurich Classic champion play a Titleist® driver and hybrid clubs, both custom-fit with UST Proforce V2 graphite shaft, but the second- and third-place runners-up also played UST graphite shafts in their drivers, including the ACCRA SE80 shaft.

“It was a great week in New Orleans for UST,” says Jim McIntosh, tour representative for UST. “Our driver shafts scored first, second- and third-place in same week on the PGA Tour, and I cannot remember the last time a graphite shaft company had that level of success. UST shafts may have made history!”

Meanwhile on the European Tour, the V2 also won the BMW Asian Open which boosted UST’s recent win total to four events in three weeks.

Extremely popular on pro tours around the world, the UST Proforce V2 utilizes a proprietary graphite fiber orientation that enables the shaft to recover faster when loaded or flexed and gives the shaft an incredibly stable feel. Combining fiber orientation with lower torque engineering and enhanced flexibility, the V2 provides unparalleled stability and consistency, and balances the tip section to launch the ball higher with increased ball speed, while the optimized torque reduces spin for superior control.

UST continues to lead in the graphite shaft industry with innovative technology, and that’s why world-renown pros such as Jim Furyk, Davis Love III, Rod Pampling and Cristie Kerr — among many others — put their trust in UST high-performance shafts.
