Aldila helps lift Shell Houston Open champ to second PGA Tour win

POWAY, Calif. -- The winner of the Shell Houston Open picked up his second career PGA Tour victory with the help of Aldila's NV and VS Proto shafts in his hybrid clubs. With the win, he earns two more years of eligibility on the PGA Tour, a start at next year's Hyundai Tournament of Champions and a trip to Augusta for this year's Masters Tournament.

Both shafts feature Aldila's Micro Laminate Technology™, which provides the player with unmatched performance and incredible feel.

"Aldila's NV and VS Proto shafts feature Aldila's patent-pending Micro Laminate Technology™ that provides the players enhanced power, consistent flex and precise feel," said Stewart Bahl, Aldila's Marketing Manager. "The consistent taper and slim profile produces a shaft with consistent performance, flex and feel throughout the length of the shaft while eliminating the dull "boardy" feel of other shafts on the market."

For the third consecutive week, "The Hottest Shafts In Golf" captured the wood and hybrid shaft counts on the PGA Tour and six of the Top 10 finishers at the Shell Houston Open played Aldila shafts. As more and more players make the switch to Aldila's new Tour Green and Tour Blue shafts in their drivers and fairway woods, Aldila continues to lead the wood and hybrid shaft counts on the PGA Tour. A total of 35 Tour Blue/Green were in play at the Shell Houston Open. Aldila had 22 more wood shafts and 10 more hybrid shafts in play than the next leading shaft manufacturer at the Shell Houston Open, according to the Darrell Survey.
