UST® Shines in Canadian PGA Championship

FORT WORTH, Texas — One week after graphite shafts designed by United Sports Technologies won all the top money positions at the inaugural Pete Dye West Virginia Classic, UST-branded shafts again finished strong in the hands of professional golf’s ‘young guns.’ At this weekend’s Samsung Canadian PGA Championship on the Nationwide Tour, nearly a half-dozen UST-branded shafts were the bags of the top five players.

The two most popular choices were IROD® and the premium ACCRA® shafts. IROD is the first shaft ever designed specifically to maximize the performance of clubs in the set positioned between the driver and 5-iron, and it is ranked the No. 1 Hybrid shaft on the PGA Tour. The new ACCRA is a true high performance tour shaft with a 1.5-degree torque and benefits of low spin have helped make it the fastest growing wood graphite shaft in play on the PGA Tour.

“ACCRA shafts have continually grown in popularity on all Tours since the line was introduced earlier this summer,” says Gawain Robertson, co-owner of Canada-based Professional Golf Management Co. (PGMC) which is the exclusive distributor for the premium ACCRA Series graphite shafts. “Not only was there a strong showing on the Nationwide Tour this week, but there were 30 ACCRA shafts in the hands of PGA Tour players this week in Milwaukee. That’s more than Graphite Design’s YS6, Fujikura’s Speeder 757 and Aldila’s NV65, NV75 and NV85 combined.”
