KBS Golf Shafts help capture playoff victory at 2013 Masters

BOULDER, Colo. -- KBS Golf Shafts were trusted in an exciting come-from behind victory at The Masters. The KBS Tour shaft (130g X flex) has been in this professional's full setup since 2011 when he was ranked 31st in world rankings. Today, this professional is a major winner and the 3rd ranked player in professional golf. This is the second major for the KBS brand in under a year (2012 Open Championship).

KBS shafts were in 16 player's bags this past week at The Masters, including the reigning US Amateur and British Amateur champions. This marks the first victory for KBS shafts at The Masters after coming in second place the past two seasons (2011 and 2012).

In addition to this tremendous victory at The Masters, KBS also won the Tour's WNB Classic. This professional has now won twice on the tour with the KBS C-Taper shaft (125g S+ flex). The KBS team has seen tremendous growth on the tour the past two seasons, with players looking for every improvement to make it to the PGA TOUR. 31 players trusted KBS this week at the WNB Classic.

"KBS shafts have been in contention the past four years at The Masters, and we are thrilled this professional won his first major title with our Tour shaft. Already recognized as one of the great ball strikers in professional golf, he has elevated his game since switching into KBS in 2011. We congratulate this player and his team on a terrific performance." said Kim Braly, Director of KBS Tour Operations.
