UST Drives Home a Victory at Bay Hill Invitational

FORT WORTH, Texas — One of the world’s largest graphite shaft manufacturers, United Sports Technologies (UST®) won its third PGA TOUR event in five weeks by outdistancing the competitors in the one stat count that matters — the leaderboard. This week’s champion became only the second international player to win at the Bay Hill Invitational, playing a HTD graphite shaft in his driver.

“The Bay Hill Invitational is a terrific venue, and we’re very excited to celebrate our third win in five weeks here,” says Stacey Benvenuto, PGA Tour representative for UST. “Bay Hill is especially demanding on a player’s driving abilities because of its narrow fairways sandwiched between sturdy rough, so it’s particularly rewarding to see a UST driver shaft consistently deliver the distance and accuracy to win on this course.”

One of the top-winning brands designed and manufactured by UST, the HTD graphite shafts have won acclaim on the professional tours for their distance and accuracy achieved through a combination of Tour-proven Proforce tip technology and ‘Counter Balance’ design. The HTD features an ‘active’ tip section that is torsionally stable to control the clubhead, but more flexible to provide some feel and kick at impact. .

New for 2006, the HTD Counter Balance Pro series is a Tour-proven winner and are designed to fit a wide variety of golfers with differing swing styles. For example, the new low-torque CB series was originally developed with pros in mind, but the unique performance characteristics of counter-balancing work extremely well for players at all levels, producing longer, straighter shots.
