His epic 3 wood shot to the 14th green will go down in history as one of the classic pivotal moments of a Major Championship.

“On a weekly basis we fit Tour players with premium ACCRA shafts, the RPG line of shafts gives us the flexibility to manipulate launch conditions with a 300 series (mid launch) and 400 series (low launch), each equally stable.”  stated Shawn Mullin (ACCRA Tour Rep.). The RPG line of shafts was designed with Tour players in mind. The full length, 360 degrees ultra fine weave made of the highest modulus materials adds significant stability without sacrificing feel” continued Mr Mullin.

The RPG 400 series is designed to produce low initial launch and low spin characteristics and the RPG 300 series offers a slightly more responsive tip section to promote a higher initial launch.
ACCRA’s “Constant Flex Technology (CFT)” ensures that all RPG shafts maintain identical flex profiles from 52+ grams through 82+ grams, this great benefits the fitting process.
