KBS has double-win weekend on Champions Tour and European Tour

BOULDER, Colo. -- The wins keep coming for the KBS brand in 2013. This past weekend, the winners of the U.S. Senior Open and Aberdeen Scottish Open had KBS Tour shafts in their irons and wedges. These wins mark the 14th and 15th worldwide wins on professional tours for KBS this season.

The winner of the 2013 U.S. Senior Open trusted KBS Tour shafts in his irons and two wedges. This professional won with a dominating five stroke margin. He has used KBS shafts since 2008 and now has six professional wins, including two majors, with the shafts. This marks the second straight major victory for KBS on the Champions Tour. Just two weeks earlier, the 2013 Senior Players Championship was won by the same player.

On the European Tour, a KBS player won the Aberdeen Scottish Open during a playoff. Trusting the KBS Tour V prototype shaft in irons and wedges, this is the second victory for this player in KBS shafts since switching his setup in 2012. It moves him to No. 5 in the Official World Rankings and is a great boost before a run at this week's Open Championship at Muirfield.

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. On Tour, the KBS Tour shaft is preferred by several of the best ball-striker's in the world that prefer feel and workability.

"We have worked closely with both players the past couple years and are thrilled to see their success this season. Both have many wins to their name, and their trust in our shafts is a testament to performance benefit of KBS. We congratulate both players and wish them continued success this season." said Kim Braly, Director of Tour Operations and R&D at KBS.
