UST's New V2 Prototype Wins Johnnie Walker Classic

FORT WORTH, Texas — With several weeks still remaining until its official unveiling, the all-new Proforce V2 prototype graphite shaft has rocked the graphite shaft industry and scored its second professional tour victory. The win came at the European Tour’s Johnnie Walker Classic held at Pine Valley Golf Resort and Country Club in Beijing with this year’s champion playing the new Proforce V2 shaft in his driver.

Designed by United Sports Technologies ® (UST), the Proforce V2 demonstrated a dramatic re-emergence of the popular Proforce series by United Sports Technologies ® (UST) and promises a tremendous introduction for the new shaft when its made available to the public in a few weeks.  

“You can’t have much better feedback on an all-new graphite shaft design than a couple of tour victories, so we’re naturally very excited about the Proforce V2,” says Shawn Mullin, PGA Tour manager for UST. “The new Proforce V2 is an incredibly powerful, super low-torque golf shaft that masterfully balances torque, weight, spin and launch angle to create the most extraordinary power-to-torque ratio in golf. The end result is super low-torque horsepower in a high-performance Tour shaft.”

According to Mullin, the Proforce V2 shafts will be offered in 55-, 65-, 75-, 85- and 95-gram versions, however, the new shaft is still only available as a prototype on Tour.

“The new Proforce V2 is already causing quite a stir,” he says, “and it will be available to the public very soon,” offers Mullin.
