FORT WORTH, TX – April 30, 2014 – UST Mamiya, maker of the world’s finest carbon fiber golf shafts, reports the winner of the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic relied on Recoil® 660 F3 iron shafts in her Callaway® Apex Pro irons to earn her first victory as an LPGA member.

“UST Mamiya wants to congratulate the winner of the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic,” said Robb Schikner, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “This is the first professional tour win for Recoil and we expect many more to come. Recoil iron shafts are truly a revolutionary shaft and the first graphite iron shaft that is better than steel.”
