UST’s Winning Streak Stays Hot in Madrid

FORT WORTH, Texas — Winning their fifth tour event in four weeks, high-performance graphite shafts by UST® (United Sports Technologies) sizzled in Spain and delivered victory at the Open de España in Madrid. The two-time European Tour champion fired a final round 67 for a 16-under par 272 to win with a Callaway driver custom-fit with a Proforce V2 graphite shaft.

In addition to the European win, UST shafts captured second- and third-place money positions at the EDS Byron Nelson Championship on the PGA TOUR.

“The Proforce V2 is one of the hottest graphite shafts in golf today, and its superior performance in drivers and fairway woods is making the V2 a favorite on the pro tours,” says Jim McIntosh, tour representative for UST. “At the Byron Nelson Championship, for example, there were more than 40 V2 shafts in play, making it one of the single-most trusted graphite shaft models on Tour.”

The low-torque characteristics of the Proforce V2 optimize performance today’s 400cc to 460cc driver heads and larger fairway woods, which often increase hit-ability for golfers. However, in most of these larger heads, the head’s center of gravity (CG) has been moved further away from the center line of the shaft, a factor which places more stress and causes more twisting on the shaft. The V2’s low torque design provides the power and control needed for 400cc to 460cc heads, plus the V2 prevents clubheads from twisting open on impact, reduces the amount of back spin imparted onto the ball and enhances shot dispersion.

“The V2 provides excellent results for players looking for added carry distance and a stable feeling in the hands,” adds McIntosh, “and the V2 has earned high praise from some of the world’s best players, such as Jim Furyk, Davis Love III, Rod Pampling and others.”
