Fujikura Golf Shafts Played By LPGA Volvik Championship Winner And Men’s NCAA Individual Title Champion

Speeder branded Fujikura Golf shafts continue to dominate amongst professional golfers

Vista, Calif. – May 30, 2016 – Fujikura Golf, recognized for designing and producing the world’s best performance golf shafts, has proved to be #1 again with yet another weekend of champions relying on Fujikura shafts to optimize their club performance.

There is a new superstar in golf, and the 20 yr old capped off the month of May by capturing her third consecutive title at the inaugural LPGA Volvik Championship by five shots over the closest competitor at 15-under 273.

No player in LPGA history, which dates back to 1950, has done what this young woman has accomplished in winning her first three titles in consecutive fashion. For all three events, she used a Fujikura Speeder brand shaft.

“We are so thrilled for this young superstar and her exciting bright future ahead. We are honored that she has chosen to use Fujikura golf shafts and relies on our shafts for maximum performance and results week after week,” stated Fujikura Marketing Manager Stephanie Hartgraves.

Fujikura golf shafts were also played by the Oregon sophomore who was crowned the 2016 NCAA individual champion, while the field in the team championship was narrowed to eight teams at the conclusion of the fourth round of stroke play Monday at Eugene Country Club, a par 70, 7,014-yard course.

More than a singular technology, enso® represents our commitment to advancing elegant, enlightened shaft design and performance at the highest levels, accounting for the full array of the swing, club head, and shaft dynamics in the design process. This holistic approach to shaft development and biomechanics includes a proprietary system which can measure thousands of swings and club performance at both pre and post impact. These shaft recordings illustrate shaft deflection, twist and club head performance based on shaft movement.
