OBAN Kiyoshi Purple shafts help capture Tampa Bay Championship

CHICAGO -- The excitement continues with another big win on the PGA Tour for OBAN. The winner of the Tampa Bay Championship, played last week on the PGA Tour, used 2 OBAN Kiyoshi Purple shafts en route to a final round of 67 and won by 2 strokes. It was his first career win on the PGA Tour.

The Tampa Bay Championship winner relied on the Kiyoshi Purple 65 gram X flex in his Ping G20 driver and the Kiyoshi Purple 85 gram X flex in his Ping G25 fairway wood.

In addition, it's the second time the winner used more than one Kiyoshi in his bag to capture the championship on the PGA Tour."
