UST Wins First- and Second-Place at World Cup

FORT WORTH, Texas – With the world as its stage, the premium ACCRA graphite shaft designed by United Sports Technologies (UST) put on a stellar performance, winning both first- and second-place at the World Golf Championships-World Cup in Seville, Spain. While the English team fought off the team from Spain to eventually win by one-stroke, players on both teams were wielding woods assembled with ACCRA graphite shafts.

“This year, most of the media focus has been on the emergence of the ACCRA as one of the most popular graphite shafts on the PGA Tour, yet we often forget that ACCRA product lines have also created an unbelievable ‘buzz’ in the European golf community,” says Gene Simpson, vice president of sales and marketing for UST brands. “Dominating the top money positions at the World Cup is a great example of how UST-branded shafts are consistently played by many of the best players in the world, and with the addition of new product options in 2005, UST shafts will certainly remain a major force in the shaft industry.”

UST’s remarkable performance on the big Tour in 2004 has almost overshadowed its equally impressive performance on the Nationwide, European, Australian and Asian Tours. With such great success around the world, UST shafts are quickly becoming the most popular graphite high-performance golf shafts played anywhere on earth.

Premium ACCRA graphite shafts are distributed exclusively by Professional Golf Management Co. (PGMC) which is now certifying dealers across North America to ensure that every ACCRA shaft is properly custom-fit. Dealers located across Canada and now in Sweden, Germany and Italy combine to make the ACCRA shaft series the highest quality, true performance, custom-fit shaft line available anywhere.

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.
