FORT WORTH, Texas — PGA Tour players know how to get in tune with their game, and two players at The Honda Classic were hearing sweet music with graphite shafts by United Sports Technologies® (UST). This weekend, UST shafts dominated the Honda Classic leaderboard, claiming first- and second-place at The Country Club at Mirasol.
This year’s champion secured his lucrative sixth-place position on the tour money list playing a Sonartec BBD 3-wood upgraded with an Accra™ SC 75 graphite shaft, while the runner-up played a TaylorMade R7 Quad driver fit with HTD CB85 to win second-place.
“We’re very excited to celebrate another win at the Honda Classic,” says Stacey Benvenuto, PGA Tour representative for UST. “UST-branded graphite shafts continue to grow in popularity on all the professional tours, and the dominance of the Top Two money positions at the Honda Classic really demonstrates the high level of performance that UST shafts provide players at all levels.”
UST-branded shafts are growing in popularity on Tour. At last week’s Ford Championship at Doral, 48 UST shafts were in play — a 18 percent increase in player usage from 2005.
