(San Diego, CA – July 30, 2012) –
After coming off a victory at the 141st Open Championship at Royal Lytham & St Anne, Fujikura has once again captured another at the Senior Open Championship presented by Rolex. The winner played the Fujikura Speeder in his driver and won the tournament by 2 strokes shooting an impressive 9 under 271 solidifying his first victory in Britain.

Additionally, Fujikura Motore Speeder VC8.2 Tour Spec was the winning Driver Shaft at the 2012 Australian Open.

“The winner has had such a remarkable career and it is a tremendous honor that he has trust Fujikura for as long as he has,” says Pat McCoy Director of Technical Services. “The Speeder legacy continues to be stronger than ever and the feedback we get back the tours has been extremely positive, we are looking forward to capturing more victories as the season progresses.”

The Motore Speeder features Fujikura’s proprietary and proven Triax Woven material along with Quadra Axis Composite creating a 7-axis Technology. The uniformity throughout the shaft assists with eliminating deformation yet providing the maximum amount of feel through the entire swing, increasing overall performance and stability. The new Motore Speeder is available through Fujikura’s Charter Dealers across the United States and around the world.
