KBS captures Tour victory, moves to no. 1 in money list

BOULDER, Colo. -- KBS Golf Shafts were trusted in a two stroke victory at the Chitimacha Louisiana Open. The "lefty" golfer trusted the KBS Tour shaft in X flex and sealed his victory with a final round 69. In windy conditions, this professional hit 13 of 18 greens in regulation and had six birdies.

The KBS Tour shaft is Kim Braly's signature model for players desiring shot versatility with a mid trajectory, piercing flight, and smooth all-around feel. Incorporating signature KBS technology, the KBS Tour shaft maximizes energy transfer within an intelligent shaft design for better trajectory and shot control.

This victory moved the professional to number one ranking on the Tour's Top 25 Money List. Currently four other players in the Top 25 are in KBS shafts with many more testing.

Also this week, KBS won the Latinoamerica Tour's TransAmerican Power Open. This professional trusted KBS shafts in his irons and sealed his first victory as a professional by going three under in the final four holes.

"The KBS team congratulates these rising stars on their victories. Both displayed terrific scoring ability in touch conditions. We wish them luck this season and hope they continue their success on the PGA TOUR." said Rob Cheng, CEO of KBS Golf Shafts.
