UST Captures Two Top Fives

Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones and Arnold Palmer designed courses up, down and around the cliffs, beaches and lava fields of Hawaii to create some of the most challenging golf courses in the world. Rising to meet this weekend’s challenge in the Aloha State,the high-performance Harmon Tour Design (HTD) and premium Accra graphite shafts designed and manufactured by United Sports Technologies (UST) teamed up to win two Top Five finishes at the Sony Open, held at the Waialae Country Club in Honolulu.

"Hawaii is one of the PGA Tour’s most thrilling and challenging venues, and we’re pleased to see UST-branded shafts grow in popularity among the pros at these events,” says Gene Simpson, vice president of sales and marketing of UST brands. “Two years ago at the Sony, for example, our shaft count was less than half of what it is now. The HTD and Accra shafts are both extremely sophisticated designs which are proven to out-perform much of the competition, and the PGA players trust real results."

United Sports Technologies makes graphite golf shafts for golf consumers and many original equipment manufacturers, such as Nike, Tommy Armour, Sonartec, Wilson Sporting Goods, Hogan, Spalding, and many others. UST also produces and distributes such world-renown graphite shaft brands as Proforce, ACCRA, PURE Gold, IROD and Harmon Tour Design which are played in more than 100 tour events on the PGA, SPGA, Nationwide and European tours. Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, UST operates four manufacturing facilities throughout the world and produces more than four million graphite shafts a year for original equipment manufacturers and custom club makers.
