SAN DIEGO -- Graphite Design, maker of some of the most widely played premium golf shafts on the PGA TOUR, announced today that the winner of the Nationwide TPC Stonebrae Championship at Hayward played Graphite Design shafts.
"We recently introduced our new G Series hybrid shaft and we are happy to see tour professionals playing and winning with it. This is a testament to our dedication to developing and bringing revolutionary, tour-tested new shaft technology to the market," said Tak Yamada, President, Graphite Design. "We congratulate the winner on his well-earned victory during challenging weather conditions."
The winner of the weather-plagued TPC Stonebrae Championship shot a 4-under 66 Sunday to come from behind and claim his first Nationwide Tour title. The winner played a Graphite Design Tour AD Quattrotech 85 in his three-wood and a G Series hybrid 105 in his hybrid.
The new G Series hybrid shaft with X Directional Technology is the next generation of premium Graphite Design shafts and is designed to be very adaptable to today's vast hybrid head technology. The G Series hybrid shaft performance characteristics favor a mid-high launch trajectory and mid ball spin.
Graphite Design's latest XDT technology incorporates the use of the already proven Graphite Design MSI (Material Stiffness Integration) design method as well as a new and unique application of graphite fiber ply angle alignment throughout the shaft structure. During the development phase of XDT, measurable performance gains were discovered through a more balanced distribution of the graphite fiber angles within the piles of the shaft design. This proprietary application of XDT has made the new G Series the most balanced, versatile high performance golf shaft available today.
The Tour AD Quattrotech shaft incorporates ACI Technology in the form of "4 axis weave material". This high end composite shaft offers a more consistent impact for all golfers. The Quattrotech shafts all have a high trajectory tip design for a higher ball launch and mid to high ball spin. The feel and control are unlike any other golf shaft and they work very well in fairway woods as well as in drivers.
