UST Mamiya Captures Third Consecutive Nationwide Tour Title with Victory at Miccosukee Championship

Winner Relies on Company’s Popular ATTAS Shaft

(FORT WORTH, TX) – UST Mamiya – maker of the world’s finest carbon fiber golf shafts – confirms the winner of the Nationwide Tour’s Miccosukee Championship relied on its ATTAS shaft in his 3-wood (69-gram, x-flex).

This marks the company’s third consecutive victory on the Nationwide Tour, following wins at the Soboba Golf Classic and Chattanooga Classic the previous two weeks. UST Mamiya shafts have been used to capture 27 titles worldwide in 2010, including 12 on the PGA Tour. Other wins have come on the PGA European, Nationwide, Champions, PGA European Senior and Asian Tours.

“Our ATTAS models have been tremendously well received by players around the globe,” says Gene Simpson, COO of UST Mamiya. “Designed and manufactured to the utmost quality, UST Mamiya shafts ensure golfers of all skill levels enjoy longer, straighter shots and lower scores.”

Likened to the precision of automaker Lexus, all UST Mamiya carbon-fiber shafts are unrivaled in quality attributed to world-class engineering, premium-selected raw materials and handcrafted, repeatable production techniques. Tight tolerances, constant taper design and low-resin content enhance feel during the golf swing.

UST Mamiya produces 35 shaft models within the ATTAS and Proforce product lines:

  • ATTAS – Introduced in Japan in early 2009 and in North America late last year, this premium shaft was immediately adopted by Tour players globally. Innovatively engineered with smooth-bending properties throughout the shaft’s constant taper design, more energy is transferred to the ball for instant feedback with greater distance. Ultra-thin carbon fibers optimize feel and allow the shaft to maintain its shape for consistent, accurate shots. ATTAS is distinguished by its tri-color look, notably its atomic orange.


  • Proforce – Famous for its bright gold color and contributing to multiple major-tournament victories, Proforce shafts have been UST Mamiya’s flagship since winning the 1999 Masters. The V2 incorporates the company’s original “tip technology,” masterfully balancing torque, weight, spin and launch angle for extraordinary power off the tee. The latest in the Proforce series, the AXIVCore features four-axis material promoting stability, control and ease of swing for increased ball speed.
