(San Diego, CA – June 4, 2012) Fujikura Rombax was the driver and wood shaft of choice by the winner of the 2012 ShopRite Championship. The winner of the ShopRite Championship hit over 80% of the Fairways and finished 12 under to win the tournament by 4 strokes.
Fujikura’s Motore Speeder VC.2 was also in the Champions driver at the 2012 Rex Hospital Open. He averaged over 290 yards off the tee and birdied the second playoff hole to capture his first Nationwide Tour victory and a check for $90,000. Additionally, Fujikura was the #1 Driver Shaft brand on the PGA at Memorial.
“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. “We have tremendous momentum going into the U.S. Open and we are hoping to capture another victory at Olympic.”
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.
