UST Mamiya Shafts Used by Winner of John Deere Classic

Champion Relies on Proforce V2 Models for Third Consecutive Year

(FORT WORTH, TX) – UST Mamiya – maker of the world’s finest carbon fiber golf shafts – reports the winner of the PGA Tour’s John Deere Classic has relied on its Proforce V2 shafts to capture the title each of the last three years.

Continuing the trend of strong showings for UST Mamiya users, the champion depended on the Proforce V2 in his driver (86 gram, x-flex), 3-wood (96 gram, x-flex) and hybrid (104 gram, x-flex). While carding four rounds in the 60s, the world’s fifth-ranked golfer became just the 10th player since World War II to win a tournament three straight times. The win is his second in the last seven weeks and gives UST Mamiya five PGA Tour victories this season.

“Players worldwide on all the major Tours continue to trust our premium shafts to optimize performance and achieve unprecedented results,” says Robb Schikner, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of UST Mamiya. “Our numerous shaft options offer profiles that enhance a player’s unique swing characteristics, including the Proforce V2 which helped this champion win seven titles and place second in the FedEx Cup over the last three years.”

Likened to the precision of Lexus automobiles, all UST Mamiya carbon-fiber shafts are made using handcrafted, repeatable production techniques that incorporate world-class engineering and premium-selected raw materials. Tight tolerances, constant taper design and low-resin content combine to enhance feel during the golf swing. UST Mamiya shafts have remained the top-selling aftermarket option in the United States the past four years.

The company produces a variety of shaft models, including the renowned ATTAS and Proforce lines, which have received significant usage on major professional tours internationally.

Knowing that every golfer who installs a new shaft will also need a grip, UST Mamiya offers a line of premium offerings, with groundbreaking new models being introduced in 2011. They include the Pro DV, Comp DV and ST1 putter grips.
