Carlsbad, CA – June 21, 2017 Pro’s Choice Golf Shafts, Inc. announced today that the winner of the Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give held at the Blythefield Country Club in Grand Rapids, MI, played a Graphite Design Tour AD TP5-X Stiff Flex wood shaft in her Ping G 9.0° Driver.  The champion won the tournament with a stellar -21 under par capturing her 4th career LPGA victory.  One of the two T2 finishers played a Graphite Design Tour AD TP shaft in her Callaway Epic Driver, and the other T2 finishers played a Graphite Design Tour AD GP wood shaft in her Cobra #3 fairway metal wood and one of the T4 finishers played a Graphite Design Tour AD MT wood shaft in her PXG Driver.

“We are so excited to see that 4 of the top finishers of the Meijer LPGA Classic tournament all had a Graphite Design Tour AD model wood shaft in their bags. The win at Blythefield CC is the 9th win of the year for a Graphite Design model shaft on the LPGA Tour and the 2nd LPGA win for the Tour AD TP shaft model”, stated Bill McPherson, VP of Sales, Pro’s Choice Golf Shaft, Inc.

The Tour AD TP, like all the premium Tour AD wood shafts, utilizes, premium, aerospace quality 50t carbon-fiber materials to deliver the best feeling and performing shaft available to golfers.

Designed around new tooling, the Tour AD TP uses brand new technology called FFT for Fast Taper Technology. This new technology incorporates a faster taper rate from the lower mid-section to the tip of the shaft than previous Tour AD wood shaft models. The new Fast Taper Technology provides the overall feeling of greater club head control at impact and an increase in club head speed through the swing.

The Tour AD TP shaft has a medium stiffness starting at the handle thru the mid-section of the shaft and a stiff tip profile to promote a mid/high launch condition and low spin. The Tour AD TP also utilizes 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. Make a change in your Driver or Fairway metal wood today to the same shaft that the professionals use, the new “Tour Proven” Tour AD TP model of premium Graphite Design graphite golf shafts with FTTFast Taper Technology.
