Fujikura reports being number one driver shaft at British Open

VISTA, Calif. -- Fujikura's reputation as "The World's Best Performing Golf Shafts" is once again validated after the Darrell Survey reported Fujikura as the number one driver shaft at this week's British Open. Fujikura was also the #1 driver shaft used at the 2013 Masters Tournament, which is the most watched golf major in the U.S.

"We are thrilled about the Open Championship count win and to have the honor of being the most preferred golf shaft among professional golfers world wide." Says Fujikura Marketing Manager, Stephanie Hartgraves. "Of course, a tour player could play well with just about any piece of equipment, but it is important to us that they rely on Fujikura shafts to give them that competitive advantage that their career depends upon."

About the Winning Shafts
The Motore Speeder - With efficient energy transfer and enhanced structural stability from 7-Axis Technology, the Motore Speeder allows you to swing with confidence. That's because the uniform reinforcement provided by our Quadra Axis Composite and Triax woven material helps you return the head more consistently to impact. This translates into longer and straighter drives. That's why the Speeder brand has won more events than any other shaft in tour history.

FUEL can be defined as material with stored energy that can later be used to generate power. Just like a high performance engine that burns high-octane fuel for more horsepower and torque, your shaft can perform the same way - using advanced technology as its fuel. With FUEL, you can see where your energy is coming from through our proprietary FUEL ROD TECHNOLOGY, created with a COMBUSTION CHAMBER and LOAD INJECTOR TIP. FUEL uniquely utilizes this technology to generate greater distance and accuracy on a more consistent basis. With this shaft, your power is on display for everyone to see.
