The 2013 Sunburst Classic Tournament was held this past weekend at Shadowridge Country Club. I was lucky enough to be able to go out there to help and document the day. The most exciting part was the Long Drive Contest put on by Fujikura Golf Shafts.
All the big hitting members were out to compete for the grand prize: a Fujikura stand bag, 3 hats, 3 head covers, a bottle of Fujikura FUEL wine, and a complimentary fitting for the new MCI iron shafts, with shafts included! And if you thought that wasn’t enough, if you won the contest with a Fujikura shaft, there was a $500 bonus prize added.
Above is a video of Fujikura President and COO, Dave Schnider, hitting his TaylorMade SLDR with a Fujikura Motore Speeder 757, +300 yards into the breeze.
It was no surprise to us when there were only Fujikura shafts being played in the final-8 contestants’ drivers. The winner was able to oust his opponent in the single elimination bracket with a 335-yard drive using a Titleist 910 D3 driver with a Fujikura Motore Speeder VC 7.1 S shaft. The runner-up came up only 4 yards short using his TaylorMade SLDR Driver with a Fujikura Motore Speeder 757 x Shaft.
