UST Mamiya Hybrid Shafts Used by Winner and Runner-up Finisher at Farmers Insurance Open

(FORT WORTH, TX) – UST Mamiya – maker of the world’s finest carbon fiber golf shafts – confirms the winner and runner-up finisher at the PGA Tour’s Farmers Insurance Open relied on its Proforce AXIVCore Tour Red 85 and Proforce V2 89 shaft models respectively in their hybrid clubs.

Continuing the trend of strong showings for UST Mamiya shaft users, both players recorded multiple rounds in the 60s en route to claiming the top two spots at Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla, CA. The win represents the second victory for the company in the first four events of the 2010 Tour season.

“Torrey Pines always provides an exciting and challenging venue and it is no surprise that the top players relied on our shafts to successfully navigate this difficult course,” says Gene Simpson, COO of UST Mamiya. “We provide Tour players with equipment that allows them to achieve optimal performance and fine tune a variety of shots.”

The Proforce AXIVCore Tour Red features the company’s award-winning 4-axis material within the inner walls of the butt section, providing stability and consistent shaft recovery. Its stiffer tip section offers a lower launch and excellent control for players of all levels.

The Tour-proven, high performance Proforce V2 hybrid model is a graphite shaft that features the highest quality materials for the best feel and performance. Utilizing UST Mamiya’s Proforce Tip Technology, the tip section has the perfect balance between flex and torque for producing medium to high launch with increased ball speed.

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 last month, 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.
