2155330Argolf Putter Used By Winner Of 2016 Insperity Invitational

JUPITER, Florida (May 9, 2016) – Argolf, precision-designed custom putters (argolfusa.com), has recorded its first win on the PGA Tour Champions. The winner of the Insperity Invitational used an Argolf putter to secure his first title on this tour.

“We extend our heartfelt congratulations to the winner of the Insperity Invitational,” said Laurent-Alix Huguet, CEO of H4Distribution, which distributes Argolf putters across the U.S. “An increasing number of tour players are discovering the exceptional design and performance qualities of Argolf putters.

“All the Argolf models offer performance characteristics tailored to each individual golfer’s needs, from amateurs to the most accomplished pros.”

The Insperity Invitational winner, now in his second year as a PGA Tour Champions player, used the Lancelot Argolf putter to earn his four-shot victory yesterday at The Woodlands (Texas) County Club, with rounds of 69, 68 and 67. Until now, his best finish was a tie for third at the Chub Classic in February.

Argolf putters are designed for accuracy with a high MOI as well as visual appeal, and are manufactured to the highest standards. Argolf’s precisely-engineered putters are in use by professionals and amateurs in Europe, the U.S. and around the world.

2155350Fujikura Golf Shafts Were Played To Win The Champions Tour Insperity Invitational, JLPGA World Ladies Championship And The LPGA Yokohama Tire Classic

The Fujikura Golf win count now reaches 25 with these noteworthy victories. In addition, Fujikura Golf dominated the golf shaft counts at the JLPGA World Ladies Championship.

Vista, Calif. – May 9, 2016 – Fujikura Golf, known for designing and producing the world’s best performance golf shafts, has captured three more professional titles. Two of the titles were taken with a Fujikura Golf driver shaft and one with a Fujikura Golf wood shaft.

The golf shafts used to pursue these victories have been confirmed by the golf equipment reporting agency the Darrell Survey. Their data verified that the Champions Tour Insperity Invitational Champion played a Fujikura PRO-53 Driver Shaft in his Cobra Driver. The PRO Series Driver Golf Shaft features a custom bending profile which creates a stiffened mid and tip section which provides more forgiveness in the handle section.

Also verified by the Darrell Survey, the winner of JLPGA World Ladies Championship at Salonpas Cup in Japan, used the sub 60 gram S.I.X. Driver Golf Shaft in her Cobra Driver. The S.I.X. Driver Golf Shaft has been engineered with thinner walls to have the same feel, stability and the control of a heavier golf shaft. This lightweight but stable golf shaft allows this LPGA Professional to swing aggressively and gain maximum distance. She is one of the longest hitting LPGA Professionals on the Tour.

“Every professional and every golfer has different swing characteristics. As seen by these two Champions. Each played a different Fujikura Golf Shaft to fit their game and maximize their results. We at Fujikura Golf highly recommend you to visit a Fujikura Golf Dealer to see what Fujikura Golf shaft optimizes your swing,” commented Fujikura Golf Marketing Manager Stephanie Hartgraves.

In addition to the win at the JLPGA World Ladies Championship Salonpas in Japan, Fujikura Golf had the majority of driver and wood golf shafts in play. Fujikura Golf had 37 driver golf shafts in play which was 30.8% of the total field. At the same event, Fujikura had 188 wood golf shafts in play which was 30.3%.

The third victory which contributed greatly to the Fujikura Golf Win Count came on the LPGA Tour at the Yokohama Tire Classic. The international LPGA Professional played a highly popular Speeder brand golf shaft in her 3-wood. Fujikura Golf’s Speeder Series has been a worldwide favorite on many tours. Its legendary performance characteristics have been developed by enso®- Fujikura’s proprietary fitting and testing technology.

“These outstanding results included a variety of Fujikura Golf Shafts but there is one commonality, they all were developed with our proprietary fitting and testing enso® Technology – the real differentiator between us and the competition,” added Hartgraves.

About enso® Technology:
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.
