(San Diego, CA – April 30, 2012) Fujikura Rombax was the driver shaft of choice by the winner of the 2012 South Georgia Classic and Mobile Bay LPGA Classic. The winner of the South Georgia Classic was the leader in Driver distance, over 329 yards, and now holds the #2 spot on the Nationwide Tour Money list.
Fujikura’s Rombax shafts, designed with our proprietary Quadra-Axis technology, was also in the winner’s driver at this Mobile Bay LPGA Classic. This is her 2nd LPGA Tour career win finishing 17 under par at The Crossings Course at Magnolia Grove in Alabama. Additionally, the second place finisher at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans played Fujikura Motore Speeder VC.2 in his Driver and Speeder 757 in his Fairway Metal.
“This weekend was a tremendous weekend for us and it’s great to have wins on both the Nationwide and LPGA this weekend,” says Pat McCoy, Director of Technical Services. “Our products continue to gain momentum on all tours and we look forward to more players performing at their best .”
New for 2012, the next generation of Rombax shafts. Rombax Type-X features Vectran in combination with Kevlar Triax. Vectran fibers suppress the immediate vibration of a shaft more efficiently. Kevlar Triax reduces ovaling and stabilizes the head at impact. The blend of these two technologies produces a strong and stable impact, resulting in greater power and control. The new Rombax is available through Fujikura’s Charter Dealers across the United States and around the world.
Fujikura is also the primary supplier to many national club brands offering both proprietary and brand product shaft designs. Fujikura products also can be custom fit through its network of over 900 Charter Dealers. Custom fit shafts are used by 100% of Tour professionals. Amateur and everyday golfers also have the opportunity to find a shaft to fit their unique swing profile – adding yards, tighter dispersion and more confidence to their swing. The first step to a custom fit shaft can be done right from your iPhone. The Fujikura Fitting Application for iPhone and iPad fits you to one of Fujikura’s shaft families. Then, the fitting is completed at a Fujikura Charter Dealer.
