Plenty Of Fujikura On The Leaderboards

Written by Joel Kordyak on August 5, 2013

(Vista, CA – August 5, 2013) –
At Firestone CC in Akron, Ohio, there was a plethora of world class players, as the WGC Bridgestone Invitational always has one of the best fields. One player who tied for fourth was playing a Fujikura Motore Speeder VC 7.0 X in his Titleist 3 wood, a ZCOM Pro 95 in his Titleist 4 wood (switched into it for this tournament), and a Speeder 904HB S in his hybrid. His Fujikura shafts were able to help him secure his 3rd top-5 finish this season.

At the Reno-Tahoe Open, our Motore Speeder VC 7.2 Tour Spec X shaft was played be one of the ties for 2nd place – his best finish this season so far.

On the Champions tour at the 3M Championship, Fujikura secured the top spot as the most played wood shaft at the tournament with a whopping 67 shafts in play. The winner of the 3M Championship was playing two Fujikura Speeder 904HBs in his two Titleist hybrids.

In local news, the 2013 Sunburst Classic was this past weekend where the Fujikura Long Drive Contest was held on Friday. The winner was able to oust his opponent in the single elimination bracket using 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. The winner walked away with a $1,820 prize!

About the Winning Shafts
The Motore Speeder – With efficient energy transfer and enhanced structural stability from 7-Axis Technology, the Motore Speeder allows you to swing with confidence. That’s because the uniform reinforcement provided by our Quadra Axis Composite and Triax woven material helps you return the head more consistently to impact. This translates into longer and straighter drives. That’s why the Speeder brand has won more events than any other shaft in tour history.

FUEL can be defined as material with stored energy that can later be used to generate power. Just like a high performance engine that burns high-octane fuel for more horsepower and torque, your shaft can perform the same way – using advanced technology as its fuel. With FUEL, you can see where your energy is coming from through our proprietary FUEL ROD TECHNOLOGY, created with a COMBUSTION CHAMBER and LOAD INJECTOR TIP. FUEL uniquely utilizes this technology to generate greater distance and accuracy on a more consistent basis. With this shaft, your power is on display for everyone to see.

“The Fujikura Speeder Evolution 757 and 757 Tour Spec will be among the most sought-after shafts for stronger players in 2015. Consistent feel and higher ball speeds make this a solid upgrade from last year’s Speeder 757.”

“If the average golfer doesn’t take advantage of this, they are nuts!”
