(Vista, CA – February 11, 2013)— Fujikura shafts made a huge splash at the AT&T Pebble Beach National with their Speeder shaft. The shaft that has earned the reputation of “the winningest shaft on the PGA Tour” over the last 10+ years, was used in the drivers of all three top finishers at the tournament and the Darrell Survey company reported Fujikura as the #1 Wood Shaft Brand in play overall.
Additionally, at the Allianz Championship over the weekend, the winner used Fujikura shafts in his driver and woods.
Pat McCoy, Fujikura’s Director of Tour Operations, commented on the company’s Tour success by adding, “it was rewarding to see the Champions Tour winner in a position where his driver hit more fairways and allowed him to be more aggressive throughout the four rounds…ultimately leading to a great victory.”
Fujikura has held a very strong presence on the 2013 PGA Tour since claiming the first win of the season at the Tournament of Champions with their brand new FUEL shaft. The FUEL was also the most anticipated new golf shaft at this year’s PGA Merchandising Show and has received nothing but raving reviews since it’s debut.
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 or Android. The Fujikura Fitting Application for iPhone, iPad and Android fits you to one of Fujikura’s shaft families. Then, the fitting is completed at a Fujikura Charter Dealer.
