FORT WORTH, TX – April 2, 2012 – UST Mamiya, maker of the world’s finest carbon fiber golf shafts – reports the winner of the Shell Houston Open relied on PROFORCE VTS shafts in his fairway wood (VTS Silver 85x) and hybrid (VTS Black 85x) to earn his second PGA win of the year. ATTAS 85x was also used by the second place finisher in his hybrid.

The winner came from behind on Sunday to earn his second victory of the year and the fifth of his career. The win catapults him into #1 in the FedEx Cup Points Race and #4 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

“UST Mamiya wants to congratulate the winner of the Shell Houston Open,” says Robb Schikner, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “PROFORCE VTS shafts continue to get more play every week on all tours proving that torque does change everything. Our shafts continue to find their way into the winners circle. They are realizing the benefit of a complete shaft fitting (torque, weight and flex) to optimize distance, control and feel.”

All UST Mamiya carbon-fiber shafts are made using handcrafted, repeatable production techniques that incorporate world-class engineering and premium-selected raw materials. This combines with tight tolerances, constant taper design and low-resin content to enhance feel during the golf swing.

The company produces a variety of shaft models, including the renowned PROFORCE and ATTAS lines, which have received significant usage on major professional tours internationally. Paralleling its achievements at the professional level, the company’s shafts have remained the top-selling aftermarket option in the United States the past five years.

    Is there a relationship between the Original UST Proforce and the Mamiya proforce?

    The current UST Mamiya Gold 65 is lighter and not as tip stiff as the older generation yellow and purple UST ProForce 65 which will make it more user-friendly to a wider array of golfers.
