FORT WORTH, Texas — Through innovation and extreme performance standards in graphite shaft design, UST® (United Sports Technologies®) continued its hot streak on the PGA Tour with a victory at the U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee. The 11-year Tour veteran trusted UST shafts in his fairway woods to deliver superior consistency and accuracy to shoot 67-63-69-67 (266), and his reward was money in the bank.

The PGA TOUR victory marks the fifth tour win in four weeks for UST graphite shafts which have recently dominated pro tour leaderboards and final round, final group pairings. In addition to the U.S. Bank Championship, UST shafts have captured the John Deer Classic and Buick Open on the PGA Tour, U.S. Women’s Open Championship on the LPGA Tour, and the Peek’n Peak Classic on the Nationwide Tour.

“More and more pro players are experiencing the outstanding performance of UST shafts and they are routinely relying on our consistency, stability and performance in the big tournaments,” says Jamie Pipes, PGA professional on staff at UST. “This is because UST has produced some of the world’s most technologically advanced graphite shafts and the players are winning with them around the world. We understand that real innovation in shaft design plays an increasingly important role in providing players with the performance they want, so we’re absolutely committed to raising the bar with every shaft model.”

Since the company’s inception in 1991, UST has led the way in developing new technologies and designs to further expand the playability and application of graphite golf shafts in a variety of clubhead designs. From the innovative IROD Hybrid to the popular Accra series to the all-new Proforce V2, UST remains committed to technical innovation through better research and testing practices, superior manufacturing capabilities and unwavering quality assurance.

UST continues to lead in the graphite shaft industry with innovative technology, and that’s why world-renown pros such as Jim Furyk, Davis Love III and Rod Pampling — among many others — put their trust in UST high-performance shafts.
