UST Tops Target World Championship

FORT WORTH, Texas — United Sports Technologies (UST®) graphite shafts won the Target World Championship. With a 3-wood upgraded with an Accra™ graphite shaft, this year’s young champion shot a bogey-free final round of 8-under 64, matching the best final round by a winner in the tournament’s seven-year history.

“UST graphite shafts have proven to be among the most accurate and longest driving shafts on the market,” says Shawn Mullin, PGA TOUR representative for UST. “For all of the UST products, our engineers continue to push the envelope to achieve ever greater measures of performance, and we’ve had some terrific victories this year.”

Featuring ‘Accra Tolerance Technology’, UST’s Accra line of graphite shafts which won the Target World Challenge is a combination of numerous technologies that can only be created with extremely high modulus materials. As a result, Accra shafts offer the optimum launch conditions combined with controlled spin rates to create maximum distance with dispersion control.

Since the company’s inception in 1991, UST has led the way in developing new technologies and designs to further expand the playability and application of graphite golf shafts in a variety of clubhead designs. From the IROD Hybrid — the Tour’s No. 1 hybrid shaft — to the popular HTD and Accra series to the all-new Proforce V2, UST remains committed to technical innovation through better research and testing practices, superior manufacturing capabilities and unwavering quality assurance. The company recognizes break-through shaft designs play an increasingly important role in offering players worldwide superior golf equipment.

United Sports Technologies makes graphite golf shafts for golf consumers and many original equipment manufacturers, such as Nike, Tommy Armour, Sonartec, Wilson Sporting Goods, Hogan, Spalding, and many others. UST also produces and distributes such world-renown graphite shaft brands as Proforce, ACCRA, PURE Gold, IROD and Harmon Tour Design which are played in more than 100 tour events on the PGA, SPGA, Nationwide and European tours. Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, UST operates four manufacturing facilities throughout the world and produces more than four million graphite shafts a year for original equipment manufacturers and custom club makers.
