Fujikura Wins On PGA, Champions,

(Vista, CA – August 26, 2013) – Fujikura golf shafts have been making quite the splash on the tour scene this year and this past weekend was no different, as Fujikura dominated the winner’s circle at the PGA, Champions and Tour events.Masters Champion and winner at The Barclays used a Rombax P95 is his Titleist 910 15 degree 3 wood to claim his victory over the current PGA Tour Win record holder.On the Champions Tour, Fujikura was the #1 driver and woods shaft brand in play at the Boeing Classic.The Tour winner used a Fujikura Motore Speeder 8.2 Tour Spec is his Bridgestone J40 14 degree 3 wood. 2nd place used a Motore Speeder 7.2 Tour Spec in his TaylorMade SLDR driver and a Fujikura Motore Speeder 9.2 Tour Spec in his RBZ stage two 3 and 5 woods.In yesterday’s golf business news stories, Fujikura Golf confirmed the re-launch of the popular Speeder757, which 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 will be available at Fujikura Charter Dealers in October and that the MSRP will be $400. She also gave a statement regarding what players can expect from the new Speeder’s performance. “The new Motore Speeder757 (and other 3 profiles available) makes more use of our proprietary Triax Core technology. Essentially, we have been able to re-engineer the structure to use stronger materials, which allows for less resin, which has allowed us to incorporate the TCT technology into the inside layer of the shaft, enhancing the effects. How does this translate into real benefits for the golfer you ask? Unparalleled SPEED, DISTANCE and STABILITY.” Hartgraves confirmed that the use of the term ‘Unparalleled’ is of significance because the new Motore Speeder757 consumer (player) testing results showed greater distances than leading competitor shafts in 100% of the participants.

Fujikura will be opening up pre-orders to their network of authorized dealers (Fujikura Charter Dealers) on September 1st and the new shafts are expected to be available for sale October 1st. MSRP is $400.

Fourteen Golf’s Winning Streak Continues With A Victory At The LPGA CN Canadian Women’s Open

IRVINE, CA – August 26, 2013 – FOURTEEN GOLF, a global leader in the development of golf equipment design, announced today that the company has been credited with another LPGA victory – CN Canadian Women’s Open. This win takes their 2013 win total to 16.

According to FOURTEEN GOLF COO Marcy Kamoda, “We applaud this young golfer’s composure. To defend one’s title is difficult but yet she made it look easy. I also want to thank her for continuing to support FOURTEEN GOLF and their products and for keeping the FOURTEEN GOLF winning streak alive. This is our third title taken within the month of August.”

A variety of FOURTEEN GOLF equipment was put into play by the CN Canadian Open Champion.

To compete against the long ball hitters, she used the CT-112 Driver off the tee. The four-piece composite Titanium 460cc traditional driver head features an exclusive crown which has been chemically milled to 0.5 mm and is complemented with a multi-layered cup face.

“The cutting edge CT-112 Driver produces maximum distance. The combination of the highly engineered head and proprietary graphite shaft work in unison to deliver the most yardage possible,” added Kamoda.

Instead of carrying long irons, the CN Canadian Open Champion played three FOURTEEN GOLF UT-612 Hybrids; 21-degree, 24-degree and 27-degree. These utility woods allow the ball to be launched easily from any lie thanks to the proper placement of the CG and MOI, even in a situation where the golfer has a downhill lie. The UT-612 Utility Woods will provide the perfect launch as well as perfect spin performance.

“The UT-612 Utility Irons are used by LPGA Tour Professionals and amateurs because they are easy to play and in any conditions. They also provide more stability than long irons, added Kamoda.

When additional yardage was needed to navigate the Royal Mayfair Golf Club, the CN Canadian Open champ played the SF-511 Fairway Woods. This series was developed for those golfers who prefer a slightly stronger lofted wood. It features a tour size club head which allows for playability out of the thickest of rough without sacrificing distance.

“I invite any golfer to demo what pure tour equipment feels like to visit the company website at and click on demo days. Once you try FOURTEEN GOLF’s equipment, you’ll see why so many professionals play FOURTEEN GOLF.”

FOURTEEN GOLF is a burgeoning golf equipment company that takes great pride in its tour program. In addition to the vast number of professional golfers playing FOURTEEN GOLF equipment, the company has a professional FOURTEEN GOLF staff team which includes PGA Professionals John Mallinger, Arjun Atwal, Ryuji Imada and Chad Collins.
