UST Mamiya Premium Shafts Used by Winner of Mayakoba Golf Classic

FORT WORTH, TX) – UST Mamiya – maker of the world’s finest carbon fiber golf shafts – confirms that the winner of the PGA Tour’s Mayakoba Golf Classic relied on its Proforce V2 shaft in his hybrid (89 gram, x-flex).

Continuing the trend of strong showings for UST Mamiya users, the champion recorded multiple rounds in the 60s en route to victory at El Camaleon Golf Club in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. The win is the third for the company during the 2011 Tour season.
