On the LPGA Tour, a Graphite Design Tour AD IZ was also a winner when the 1st place finisher of the Cognizant Founders Cup played a Graphite Design Tour AD IZ-5 Stiff flex wood shaft in her Titleist TSi3 Driver and claimed her 10th LPGA career victory and third win of the season.

“What an awesome weekend for the winner of the Shriners Children’s Open shooting a 62 on Sunday and for the winner of the Cognizant Founders Cup winning wire-to-wire. It’s so exciting to see such spectacular achievements with Graphite Design shafts in their clubs”, stated Wayne Ageno, President, Pro’s Choice Golf Shafts, Inc.

The Tour AD DI “DEEP IMPACT” is designed to provide golfers with more power and stability in their golf shaft. Designed and manufactured exclusively at the Graphite Design factory headquarters in Japan, the Tour AD DI orange and black colored options received a recent cosmetic and are available in 50g R2 (Lite), R1 (Regular) S and X flex, 60g SR (Stiff Regular), S, X and TX (Tour X-Stiff) flex, 70g S, X and TX (Tour X-Stiff) flex and 80g S, X and TX (Tour X-Stiff) flex. The unique shaft profile and designs of the Tour AD DI wood shafts remain exactly the same and only the cosmetics have been re-freshened.

The Tour AD DI 5-R2, R1 and S flex, 6-SR, S and X flex, 7-S and X flex and 8-S and X are available in two color schemes orange with white bands and green rings and a 2nd color option of black with white bands and silver rings.  The Tour AD DI 5-X, 6-TX, 7-TX, 8-TX and 9-X flex shafts are available only in the orange color scheme.

The Tour AD DI is our first shaft design that was integrated with Toray Company’s original NANOALLOY material technology in the tip section of the shaft. This material technology has now come to be known as “DI Technology”. This unique material technology promotes additionally shaft stability without the loss of feel and allows the player to create greater club head speed resulting in greater ball speed while still providing exceptional feel and control.

The Tour AD DI also utilizes premium, aerospace quality 50t carbon-fiber materials to provide the best performing shaft available. The softer mid-section bend profile of the Tour AD DI allows the player to load the shaft properly, yet it maintains a firm enough tip section through impact promoting a high launch and low spin ball flight condition. The result, the Tour AD DI delivers players to the next level in shaft performance and will create a “DEEP IMPACT” on your game!
