Additionally, the second place finisher, the two T3 finishers and the fifth place finisher all had Graphite Design Tour AD wood shafts in their respective bags as well.


“We congratulate the winner on her LPGA tour victory with our new Tour AD GP shaft in her bag. The new Tour AD GP model is positioned within our line up to be a true performer for Tour players and amateurs alike”, stated Wayne Ageno, President of Pro’s Choice Golf Shafts Inc.

Last weekend’s win on the LPGA tour circuit marks the 2nd win on the LPGA Tour in 2016 and the 8th global professional tour win for a Graphite Design shaft model within the 2016 season.

Designed and manufactured at the Graphite Design Japan factory headquarters, the Tour AD GP wood shaft is available in 45g R2, R1 and S Flex, 55g R2, R1 and S flex, 65g SR, S and X flex, 75g S and X flex and 85g S and X flex and the brand new Tour AD GP – Black Edition in 65g and 75gweights. The shaft structure of the Tour AD GP Black Edition shafts are exactly the same as the Tour AD GP-6 and GP-7 Teal colored shafts and the only difference is the color.

The Tour AD GP, like its predecessors, utilizes premium, aerospace quality 50t carbon-fiber materials in order to deliver the best feeling and performing shaft available to golfers. The Tour GP-4’s are unique and designed for a player that is looking for a light weight shaft with a soft tip to butt profile that will help launch the ball higher. The Tour AD GP-5’s, 6’s, 7’s and 8’s are designed with a very stiff tip and stiffer mid to butt section to promote a mid-launch condition and low spin.

The Tour AD GP also utilizes the latest in graphite material from Toray Industries, Inc., TORAYCA ® T1100G carbon-fiber pre-preg with NANOALLOY ® technology in the tip section of the shaft for additional shaft stability, exceptional feel and precise ball control.
