FORT WORTH, TX – May 5, 2014 – UST Mamiya, maker of the world’s finest carbon fiber golf shafts, reports the 1st place finisher at the PGA Tour Wells Fargo Championship relied on Elements® Wind 8F5 (X) shaft in his TaylorMade® SLDR 3-wood. The 2nd place finisher relied on PROFORCE® VTS Black 100X hybrid shaft in his Callaway® X-Hot 20° hybrid.
The winner finished with rounds of 70, 67, 66 and 71 (-14) and moved to 18th place in the FedEx Cup standings.
“UST Mamiya wants to congratulate the winner of the Wells Fargo Championship,” said Robb Schikner, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Elements Earth, Wind and Fire shafts provide golfers more options for flight and feel. All three shafts provide greater stability in the mid-section of the shaft for ideal launch and spin, creating maximum distance and greater accuracy.”
UST Mamiya’s advanced research lab has developed new data that proves Mid-Flex Stability is the most important feature in the golf shaft for spin and launch. Mid-Flex Stability Benefits:
- Reduction of drooping in order maintain acceleration forces at impact
- Reduction of orbiting in toe/heel and front back flexion to eliminate loft, spin and face angle distortions to reduce dispersion
- Redistribution of torque through the shaft in order to maximize head and ball speed
