(Vista, CA – May 27, 2013)—
A week after being the #1 Driver Shaft at the Byron Nelson and the winning driver shaft on the European Tour, Fujikura’s FUEL and Motore Speeder shafts are found in the winner’s bag in all the premier events of the weekend. The winner of the BMW PGA Championship played a Fujikura FUEL 65X flex in his Titleist driver and a Motore Speeder 7.1X flex in his 3 wood. The winner of the Crowne Plaza Invitational played a TaylorMade R1 (10 degree) with a Fujikura Motore Speeder VC 6.1 X flex shaft. And the winner of the Senior PGA Championship used Motore Speeder 75 in all of his irons.
“We’re thrilled by these wins because these professionals continue to demonstrate their confidence in Fujikura shafts to perform in premier events,” says Stephanie Hartgraves, Marketing Manager of Fujikura. “It’s so exciting to see these talented players all over the world depending on us and the advanced technology, materials and designs we work so hard on day in and day out.”
“This is another excellent week for our brand and team,” says David Schnider, President/COO of Fujikura. “These accomplishments help validate our mission, which is and always has been to simply create superior performance golf shafts.”
About the Winning Shafts
The Motore Speeder Series shafts feature Fujikura’s proprietary and proven H.I.T. which stores more energy during the downswing and releases the energy just before impact, while maintaining the stability of the entire club. The result is greater distance and accuracy in all clubs. Motore’s “smart” shaping of the tip enables these benefits while minimizing weight, allowing the tip end to accelerate faster than conventional tips.
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.
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.
