Fujikura golf shafts help capture victory at Toshiba Classic

VISTA, Calif. -- Fujikura golf shafts have been in the bag of nearly every winner on Tour this season and this week, the Winner Used a Fujikura Motore Speeder 6.2 TourSpec(TS). Congrats to the Toshiba Classic winner who clinched his 10th Champions Tour title, birdieing the final two holes for a one-stroke victory.

Stephanie Hartgraves, Fujikura's Marketing Manager, commented on the Motore Speeder shaft brand's success by saying, "We are honored to have so many wins on Tour and especially when it is a player that has been loyal to our brand for so long. It is a true testament to the quality, performance and reliability of our golf shafts. " Hartgraves continued by adding, "We pride our selves on providing that reliability to all levels of players through our proprietary product development and fitting processes. In fact, here is an email that was just sent to me from on of our customers on Friday. This is why we get out of bed to come do what we do everyday at help golfers play their best golf and have more fun!"

"Being a bit of an equipment junkie, I've been obsessed with finding the exact right gear for me in order for me to maximize on-course performance (and therefore fun!). I'd pretty much gotten my bag dialed in, but I always felt like my driver, fairway, and hybrid were not quite right for me - they just seemed slightly "loose" despite several sessions with my fitter. Being a born skeptic I did a LOT of research before I settled on Fujikura as the company that would my savior - imagine how thrilled I was to find out that a certified Fujikura fitter was only 30 miles away!

Every golf company in the world promises distance and accuracy with their products, but in this case it was no boast - it was just the plain facts. I instantly gained 15 yards in distance while dispersion shrank considerably - I just had to smile with each hit. Similarly, we got my 3-wood and hybrid dialed in, and by the time I left I was tired but completely thrilled and I couldn't wait to hit the course, which is the true test!

I'm happy to report that on-course performance was everything I could have hoped for - the launch monitor statistics were entirely accurate. Longer, better flight path characteristics, more reliability and accuracy - my first round with these new shafts was easily my best driving round ever. My buddies even commented that they were skeptical at first, but by the turn they were believers. I can't emphasize enough that every golfer serious about their game needs to go get fitted for Fujikura shafts - there's a reason they are among the most popular shafts on tour, and even average joes will reap the benefits. What all of this boils down to is that all hyperbole aside, I'll be a Fujikura customer for as long as I can swing a club - without Fujikura shafts I simply won't have the same level of confidence I do with them."
