(Vista, CA – July 29, 2013)—
The winner of the RBC Canadian Open was able to cruise in to the club house with ease thanks to his Fujikura Golf shaft. While using his Fujikura FUEL 2.0 X shaft in a TaylorMade SLDR driver, the winner was able to secure his second PGA win this year by a comfortable three shots.
Directly behind him, in a four-way tie for second, one player was using a Fujikura Motore Speeder VC 6.2 X in his driver, a Motore Speeder VC 7.1 X in his 3 wood, and a Motore Speeder VC 8.2 X in his 4 wood. Also in the tie for second, a player used a Fujikura FUEL 60 X in his driver and, an oldie but a goodie – a Speeder 904HB X in his hybrid.
Not only did Fujikura Shafts dominate the stroke play leaderboard, but Fujikura was also the #1 driver shaft in play (32 shafts) in Ontario, Canada.
Across the pond at the Senior Open Championship at Royal Birkdale, there were a whopping 104 Fujikura shafts in play, making them #1 on the Champions Tour as well.
About the Winning Shafts
The Motore Speeder Series shafts feature Fujikura’s proprietary and proven 7-Axis technology 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.
