Fujikura golf shafts leading Tour in driving distance, accuracy

VISTA, Calif. -- statistics are reporting that all top 3 players leading driving distance on Tour are using Fujikura golf shafts. Additionally, 3 out of the top 4 in driving accuracy percentage are also playing Fujikura golf shafts.

The Darrell Survey has reported that Fujikura has moved into the #1 position for most played fairway wood shaft brand. Fujikura was also the #1 driver shaft brand at two of the biggest golf events of 2013, the Masters and the British Open (also reported by Darrell Survey).

In other recent Fujikura Golf news, the company just launched the highly anticipated NEW Motore Speeder757. The Speeder brand is considered to be the most iconic and sought after shaft in shaft brand history. Speeder quickly became the #1 shaft brand on the PGA Tour and has never left the tour since it's debut in 1998, earning the nickname, "the winningest shaft on tour" for well over a decade.

Fujikura marketing manager, Stephanie Hartgraves confirmed that the shaft is now available at select certified Fujikura Charter Dealers. She also gave a statement about the shaft's performance. "We are beyond excited here at Fujikura because we have really set the bar high with this product, which took a lot of time, engineering and testing. We had the immense challenge of making the best shaft in history, better. Kudos to my team, mission accomplished. Player testing in Japan produced greater distances than competitor shafts in 100% of players." Hartgraves continued by saying, "The Speeder757 has only been available since October 1st and our social communities (FB, Twitter, Instagram, Blogs/forums) are already flooded with great stories and 'Thank You' messages. It is incredibly rewarding to have such a positive impact on the equipment industry and the overall enjoyment of the game!" has released one of the first reviews of the shaft.
